No trend has swept over street style quite like the minimalist, normcore aesthetic. And now, Taylor Schilling in minimalist fashion at Club Monaco's anniversary in its flagship store in NYC shows us how to take this trend straight into evening event-wear. Schilling's cozy look pretty much confirms how important outerwear is, and how you can still look trendy and chic despite a (big) breeze.
There's a reason for the saying, "Less is more." Clean lines, impeccable tailoring, and a neutral color palette have reigned supreme this past year, and for good reason. Nothing beats out a classic — and Schilling's look is no exception. I'm pretty much fawning over the luxe, comfy fabrics and textures of her entire ensemble. Clad in all Club Monaco (which, honestly, is a dream), Schilling donned a classic black turtleneck (hello, Audrey Hepburn!), white culottes with a simple tie at the waist, peep-toe mules, and, my favorite part of all, a camel midi coat. Sigh... I'm in minimalist heaven.
Of course, she sported her classic blonde bob, with a natural, fresh face. All in all, her look was clean and cozy — the aesthetic I've been trying to follow all fall. Plus, this outfit completely nailed fall/winter layering, with just a sliver of her black turtleneck peeking past the camel coat. Love.
While many of us love Club Monaco, it may not be in most Millennial budgets. But fear not: There are some alternatives guaranteed to help you perfect Schilling's look. Plus a pair of those white culottes that I just couldn't resist adding.
1. This Light Camel Coat
ASOS CURVE Kimono Sleeve Coat, $152.28, asos.com
This coat is perfect for those crisp fall days that aren't quite chilly enough for a wool coat. However, when temperatures do drop, it'll be a fantastic layer to throw on under your trusty parka.
2. The Oversized Look

Hi, gorgeous. I love the oversized lapels on this, and how the coat hits mid-calf. Talk about major warmth!
