Drama: High Boots and Long Jacket

November 11, 2015

Adding drama to an outfit is a fun and exciting way to create interest.  Drama isn’t reserved just for fancy events, but can be applied to everyday style.  Today’s look I added two pieces that create drama – over the knee boots and a flowing trench coat.  Longer length pieces inherently create drama.  My trench creates drama not only because of the length, but also in its movement when it dances with the wind.   For the sake of today’s post, I am focusing on longer length pieces to create dramatic interest.   I chose high boots and a long trench, but also try longer tops (high-low tops work great too), long scarves, wearing a dress as a top paired with pants underneath, or even wearing super long, street skimming flares paired with high heels or platforms to create that extra level of excitement.  When pieces stand apart because of their longer length it creates eye-catching interest and elevates the outfit.


I think this gorgeous tassel clutch deserves its own mention.  It’s by India Hicks, a brand that I just became familiar with, and I can’t get over the quality.   The leather is buttery soft, the hardware sturdy and beautifully shiny.  The tassel on it allows for adding charms onto the clutch to personalize it. So fun!  I’m sporting the “Addict” charm with an embossed coffee on the back.

    Love the idea of long on long! You know I gravitates more drama in my outfits but I think I should take note to un-complicate them a bit like you do. 🙂
