Winter Coat Shopping Guide

alt="winter coat shopping guide, winter coats"

 

Baby it’s cold outside, time to start adding to your coat collection!  Your coat is one of your best accessories for winter, I personally will continue to show peaks of skin throughout  the season so a coat definitely comes in handy to get me through.  My winter coat collection.. I’m running out of closet space it’s ridiculous.  Whether you’re looking for neutrals, a bold color, pastel shades or something standout to a oversized, tailored or slouch fit.. layering in style is the only way to go.  Longline coats are a fave of mine, complete warmth from head to toe! I find coats to be somewhat of something to spend a little more because they will remain in your closet for years to come.  So many options to chose from so I felt a winter coat shopping guide was in order!
By the way, I saw Hunger Games last night .. I will probably go see a few more times it was F’IN amazing!! I had my three fingers in the air!!!

Accessories are what make a more simple look and I find even more important for fall/autumn because you are covered in layers, so you have to find a way to add a little something something to your look. I am all for cropped fits, so I gravitated towards this blue cropped sweater because one I love my blue’s/navy’s and I have yet to come across a style where there is a cropped back.. LOVE.  And accessorized accordingly with a red plaid scarf, textured bag and camel belt to add to my look.  How to accessorize a look is a topic I cover during my 5 week online seminar by the way!

Off to run errands then going to see The Hunger Games tonight sooooooo excited!!

Moto jacket, biker jacket.. leather/faux leather jacket.. whatever you prefer I feel is a must have in your wardrobe.  It’s a great way to add a little edge and dress down what would be a more dressier look if you had not paired with the jacket.  Versatility is so important when adding garments to your wardrobe, then again that all comes down to how creative you get with your clothes!  Style is what you make it! (If you could use a little assistance on this, my 5 week online would be of great help!)

A short sleeve coat? How can a coat (that’s suppose to have complete coverage) have short sleeves.. odd right? But I own quite a few and the only trick is to really really layer to make up for the lack of sleeves.  Lucky enough, this version has detachable sleeves so win/win in this case! Faux leather pants is always a favorite of mine for fall/winter so I look to add in a variety of colors, I’ve been adding to the mini collection for a few years, navy is next on my list of course.  You can’t tell but I actually have layers underneath this sweater to make the short sleeve coat wearable for the colder temps, worked for me!

Express top (alternative) | Zara cardigan (other sleeveless options here + here) | YMI Flare Jeans c/o | H&M belt | Boohoo sunglasses | Aldo shearling bag | Aldo olive boots | Dolce & Gabbana lipstick

Taking a break from my skinny jeans and opting for a flare leg! This completes my YMI Denim Guide post, styled a color jean, acid wash jean and bootcut jean so I chose a style that I don’t normally wear to see how I can make such a retro style more modern — paired with a simple long sleeve tee, hints of olive with the belt and boots and added in textures with a boucle sleeveless oversized cardigan and shearling bag.  One thing about these jeans, they have a low fit (which I love) but not too low where you have to wear a belt or risk being exposed and the faded wash detailing on the back of the legs! Love.  It’s always nice to switch it up and throw in a style you don’t normally wear, the comfort to these jeans will make them a for sure staple in my wardrobe.  Speaking of trying new things, I am loving my new shade of green lipstick into my fall/winter mix!

Taking a casual item, a navy sweatshirt and dressing it up.  I find the more simple a garment is, the more fun to wear because there are endless ways to style and restyle.  I am all about versatility with my closet, like I always say.. maximizing starts within!  Gives me more range to dress up or dress down and allows me to get a little more creative to make something so simple, stand out and more exciting.  Then for those days I want something less fussy, pair it with some denim and I am good to go!
