Fashion Friday | In Theory, This Works

It’s still pretty hot outside and by hot I mean a tiny bit brutal. Each day that I step outside, I take one deep breath in, which is actually awesome, and then I mentally curse out Mother Nature as I walk the few blocks from my apartment building to the train. Once I descend the train station stairs and board the train, I try to forget about the weather outside but then I get reminded that I’m trying to shield myself from the cold because I start to sweat underneath my layers. The instant my train arrives at its destination and I breeze through the open double doors of the car I’ve ridden in, it always feels like “a moment” that should be photographed by Steven Meisel. I have felt this way ever since I saw the editorial he shot with top model Raquel Zimmerman for Vogue Italia November 2011.

Longest story short, this Theory Wellardon Palatine Melange top coat ($845) is one of those coats I would like to wear as I have my moment. It’s got a notch lapel which turns up its classy factor but I can very well envision this coat being paired with a totally casual ensemble without looking one ounce out of place. Casual and classy? It’s a fine line that many have tried to balance but fail. Yes, I’m referring every single Kardashian even if they’ve undergone an unfortunate Kanye makeover.
