“Coats are the best accessory” is a phrase I live by. I think that I can truly call myself completely “coat obsessed”. They set a tone for an outfit, a well-picked coat stands out in a crowd, it makes you look polished and prepared. You might be wearing no more than jeans, a t-shirt, and flats…but just throwing the right wool coat over it can take the look from casual to smart and sophisticated. This is why I love the humble coat.
I grew up in southern California, so coats were rather a foreign thing to me, as I hardly needed one past a light raincoat for the occasional drizzly day. Once I had moved to New England, and watched a few too many 1960s Audrey Hepburn films (coats to die for!), I found myself collecting as many coats as could fit in the closet. There are two coat closets on either side my front door…one is for me…the other for the rest of my family…plus most of my bedroom closet is outerwear, and their are a few hiding the attic…and I still have my eye on getting more! (I try to donate all old coats…there are always folks out there that need a coat during the winter months.)
I thought I’d share a few of my favorite coats, and most of them are on sale right now! BTW a coat makes a great Christmas gift…well…at least that’s what I would want!
– The Wool Coat –
Wool coats are probably my favorite coat that there is! There are always so many different shapes, colors, patterns, styles, etc. out there! Below are a handful of my wool coat picks!
– The Parka/Puffer –
The ultimate cold weather coat. I love parka’s because they allow you to be cozy while standing the middle of a blizzard! I bought my J. Crew parka a year ago, and I have never regretted this purchase, it is so warm! Here are my top parka picks!
– The Bold Choice Coat –
I always love a bold pattern coat, especially around the holidays. It is fun, festive, and lights up the gloomy winter days. Here are my “bold choice” coat picks.
