In The Mood For: A Red Coat, Inspired by Jessica Chastain

Proving that redheads can indeed wear red, Jessica Chastain was spotted headed for an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in New York City wearing this charming double-breasted Michael Kors vibrant crimson colored coat. The design featured circle pockets, a large Peter Pan collar and gold-encircled buttons--very mod inspired feel. Tumbling wavy tresses and black Rupert Sanderson heels topped off her look.











So inspired by Jessica's warm and cheery ensemble, I have selected THREE fab red coats sure to make your winter wardrobe pop.

Mixed Separates Monday: Plum Perfection

Various shades of purple are always a popular pick for fall fashion and designer's collections are always packed full of the romantic and bold shade. One of my favorite hues of purple is plum, because of its ability to serve as both a warm and cool color. This ultimately depends on how much of the red and blue tones are mixed into the color palette to create the shade. The See by Chloe sweater, featured below is a cooler shade of plum, while the White House|Black Market Plum Corduroy Jacket is a warmer shade of the rich color.

What do you think of the color plum? Have you added any plum pieces to your fall wardrobe?  Do you prefer to wear plum with more blue tones or red?

Your Perfect Look Styled by Ryan Lochte

Ryan Lochte is currently the hottest Olympic athlete of the summer games. The gold medal winner recently told Women's Health about the perfect look for his ideal girlfriend. He was asked: Women look hottest in? Lochte replied, “One of my long-sleeve button-down shirts and that’s all. The second sexiest thing: white jeans.” It seems kinda of random, but we get it. He's from Florida and white is definitely viewed as more of a resort style of dressing. So we get his thought process. Just know, Mr. Lochte, that white denim is very hard to pull off, but we will definitely cozy up in one of your shirts. It seems that fashion is on Ryan's mind because the Olympian has stated that he would like to design business suits for men with a rock star edge.

Lochte also shared his personal style in where he revealed that he sleeps naked, but he also loves shoes. When asked how important it was for guys to have fashion sense, the 27-year-old replied, "Really important--it's how your personality comes out. I don't have a set style, but I try not to dress like everyone else."

We put together a stylish ensemble that is sure to be Ryan Lochte approved.

Style by Ryan Lochte

Where to Buy:

The Shirt: We think Ryan will love this button down shirt from J. Crew. Key Lime Neon is the color and it's seemingly perfect since Key Lime pie originated in the Florida Keys in Ryan's current home state. 

Shop: J. Crew, Men's Stonewashed Oxford Shirt; $68.00

The Pants: These lightweight, mid-rise skinny jeans are super comfy. They are perfect for walking around in the humidity of the Sunshine State.

Shop: Net-A-Porter, Rag & Bone Mid-rise Skinny Jean; $175.00

The Shoes: Ryan said he wanted to design men's suits with a bit of edge, so we're sure he will love these Christian Louboutin heels with spikes and bling (just like his grill).

Shop: Net-A-Porter, Christian Louboutin, Palace 120 Embellished Swarovski Snake Skin Sandal,  $2,310.00

Style Find: J. Crew, Embroidered Feather Dress, $895.00

Where to Buy: J. Crew

Why You Should Buy: Olivia Palermo would be proud of your fun and flirty summer style with this dress from J. Crew. This is the ultimate dress for the fashion forward or the modern bride.

We love summer whites and this statement making dress is sure to be the talk of any summer soiree. The feather tiered skirt is utterly romantic. Add a metallic clutch and a pair of heels that pop, and you're set.

Memorial Day Weekend Style: Day and Night

Cookouts, parties, parades and race cars can only mean one thing: Memorial Day Weekend has arrived. Most likely you have a few events in your social calendar this weekend and that calls for a few wardrobe changes.

Keep your look daytime casual and simple during the day and appropriate for the weather. Too many accessories and high heels could make for an uncomfortable outing -- you'll be too busy adjusting or wobbling around a crowded event rather than focusing on conversation and enjoying good food and drinks. Breathable, breezy fabrics and light colors mix for the perfect outfit. 

Take your evening look up a few stylish notches, but still keep comfort in mind. Think more cocktail chic -- like a sensational shift dress or a pretty lace dress paired with a wedge heel. Keep your accessories light. Stacked bangles or a dramatic pair of earrings will give your look just the sensational spark it needs to be complete.
