Hood life: Escape from the rain in a stylish coat

We shall remain forever grateful to Chanel for taking something as frumpy as quilting and making it chic. That also means anything made well with that trademark stitch instantly looks refined. I originally got this coat for a recent Paris trip. I loved how smoothly it could transition from a day to night look. It’s also great for San Francisco’s frequent changes in microclimates.

I paired the look with black snake-embossed booties. The sheen and repetitive pattern compliment the jacket, while the acrylic heel adds an unexpected element. On a rainy day like we had today, you may opt for something with a closed toe. For me, I’m fine to get my feet a little wet. In Hawaii, we’d go barefoot everywhere!
