The Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific Collection Is Proof You Need A Pastel Coat This Winter
If you've followed veteran blogger Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific since the beginning, then you've watched as the style maven rose to become one of the top names in the fashion game. Now with 1.1 million followers on Instagram, the mega influencer is taking her distinct playful-meets-polished style to the next level, coming together with retail powerhouse Nordstrom. The much anticipated Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific collection launches Oct. 22 and has all the picture-worthy pieces you could want for under $250.
The collaboration between Eadie and Nordstrom’s exclusive brand, Halogen, will allow you to add the influencer’s enviable signature style into your wardrobe. The large collection spans outerwear, separates, footwear, and accessories that were all influenced by Eadie’s classic feminine style with a quirky twist. The accessible price point and a size range of 00 to 24 will make it that much easier for you to refresh your wardrobe and achieve those Instagrammable moments.
Followers of Atlantic-Pacific know Eadie has a special knack for mixing colors, prints, and textures effortlessly, and the collection does not disappoint the color-inclined while also providing lighter shades and neutral hues for a more subtle approach.
“When we began to concept the collection we started with color. I was inspired by a more unexpected cosmetic palette for fall with pops of vibrant oranges and rust,” says Eadie in an email to The Zoe Report. “I knew I wanted the collection grounded in feminine details, quirky color combinations, and most importantly, full of pieces that could be styled again and again within the collection.”
The collection has all the saturated colors that are sure to make a statement this season, but it also makes an even stronger case for pastels for winter with cozy sweaters, soft accessories, and structured blazers that come in softer shades. However, one scroll through Eadie's Instagram and you'll see Eadie's fondness for outerwear, which combined with a pastel color palette translates into true standout pieces in the collection.
For $249, shop a light green double breasted long coat that can go ultra feminine or sleek and modern depending on what you pair it with. And if you're seeking a topper with a pattern, this long plaid coat that mixes in soft pink and baby blue may be the one for you.
The use of pastels along with feminine details and silhouettes synonymous with Eadie's personal style, such swingy midi skirts, contribute to the retro romantic vibe that's woven throughout the collection. Never one to shy away from bows and pearls, Eadie incorporates these touches into several pieces throughout the collection — including one of her personal favorites.
“My favorite piece is the pink bow blouse. I joke it is me in garment form. Between the blush tones, the use of velvet and bows, with a wider cuff, fuller sleeve, pleated front details and pearls, it hits on everything I would want in a top! It is also surprisingly versatile to wear!”
You're bound to get a lot of mileage out these pieces, as they're meant to be worn from work-to-weekend and beyond. Start scrolling to see a few pieces below and shop the rest of the collection on Nordstrom.com and in these Nordstrom store locations starting Oct. 22.
