Seasonal Outfitters has a great selection of you guessed it- outdoor apparel that is rugged but still super chic. The Knit Rabbit Fur Vest, $196.00, by 525 America, has a sexy scoop neckline and full back that is not only soft but very comfortable. While this vest pairs great with a long sleeve knit and jeans for a more casual look; it can also be worn with a dress for more formal occasions. Seasonal Outfitters also has a great selection of footwear. The Anne Klein AK Calantha Black Suede Boot, $143.00, is the perfect statement boot. These tall leather riding boots are beautifully made and made to last- isn’t that what we all want in a boot? Pairs perfect with skinny jeans, dresses and skirts-these boots are a worthy investment.

A distressed pair of jeans is a great look on anyone-and Levi’s is famous for making their jeans universally flattering on all body types.

These jeans are also comfortable-and you won’t have to worry about them being too tight. Not looking to spend $100 on a pair of jeans? Levi has a great selection of classic slight curve slim jeans, $58.00, which also come in great washes and fits.

This double-breasted long sleeve jacket (Free People, $148.00) is the epitome of sophisticated and trendy. Available in shell white, this light-weight blend of cotton/polyester and spandex has intricate lace inserts and bold buttons and detailing; so it’s an updated twist on a traditional peacoat. Hitting above the waist, this jacket is great on various body types. Need a great top for under the jacket- Try the MICHAEL, Michael Kors Long-Sleeve zipper top, $59.50. This cotton top is a great staple piece with a casual pullover style that has been updated for a more modern, trendy feel with zipper detailing and ruching at the sides.

These square-fame sunglasses will leave you feeling like the ultimate celebrity. The slightly tinted lenses ($5.80) give off a cool and sophisticated vibe.  Sunglasses are also available in brown and taupe, but stick with basic black shades that go with everything.
