I consider a coat an accessory…..let’s be honest it can really make or break your look. Think formal full length dress with a short black puffy coat….ugh, definitely a pet peeve of mine. Your coat should be a continuation of your outfit. If you are spending all that time putting a look together, don’t ruin it with the wrong coat!
I look at coats as investments…I live in Chicago, I’m wearing a coat 90% of the year, haha! But really, you do wear coats more often than any of your other clothing items (pipe it if you are in a warm climate). It can really work two ways for you…if you have a statement tailored coat you always look put together even if you are a hot mess underneath i.e. still in pajamas, loungewear, etc. Your coat is also your first impression if you think about it, when you walk inside it’s the first thing people will see until you take it off which usually happens after you sit down. I say they are an investment because most of my coats I wear year to year and still love them just as much as I did when I first purchased them.
I’ve picked out a few of my favorites below! You will notice there are two specific types not shown: black (because I know you already own one) and puffer coats (you probably have this too). The purpose of this post is for you to branch out in your outerwear!
