Sometimes all you need is one striking piece to stand out from the crowd. Opting for a body-draping and eye-catching coat or jacket as your third piece is arguably the easiest way to spice up your look, especially if you need to liven up a boring outfit. Plus points if it comes with an unconventional design or silhouette!

Heels are optional, but if you want a more polished vibe, go ahead and cop Kryz's full look!
