In my determination to start dressing more fashionably, I bought this mod coat
. Except...what should I wear with it? Accessorize me, please!

I'm horrible at picking out winter hats (I finally decided it was time to move beyond a furry moosehunter style), and then choosing a scarf (if I should even wear a scarf with this???), and gloves.
And never mind style...what about color? Oy.
I'm fairly small framed, thin waisted, big busted, blonde, and tucking my hair up into a hat apparently makes me look like a soulful cancer patient (not my words).
I know, KNOW, this coat will look good on me though. I just need a jumping off point for delving into my fashionable self...because I pick out good elements...like I like slim, well-fitting leather gloves, and obviously belted coats, and boots.
I can never seem to really smush them together though, 'cause when I do, I sorta look like a retro or punk bag lady. And when I look up "how to wear...." through Google or other fashion sites, it's TOO high fashion and it gives me this urge to spend too much money.
I don't want to look like a smorgasboard of retro clothing, but I also don't want to look like I'm trying to walk off the runway...you know?
Thanks for your help.
