Yes, I know this is another blog about coats, but I just can't help myself. The only thing that gets me through the painfully long, freezing cold, Utah winters is the fact that I get to bundle up in some of my favorite coats. And I mean really....who doesn't just LOVE a long plaid wool coat?
I love the way a plaid coat can dress up an outfit. (Regardless of what you are wearing underneath.) A popular fashion trend this winter is keeping your look sporty and casual. For example, pairing sweats, hoodies and sneakers with a long masculine coat. It's one of those "I just threw on whatever was closest to me and then rushed out the door" kind of looks. When in reality, we all know how long it REALLY took you to achieve that "I don't care" look. 😉
Annika, for one, is reaping the benefits of her moms coat addiction.:) She has absolutely loved sharing my coats with me this winter-and without fail she always styles them beautifully.
I purchased both plaid coats from Mango during the after Christmas Sale. After Christmas is the very best time to coat shop because there are SO many fantastic sales going on. My favorite places to coat shop are Mango, Zara, and Asos. If you are wanting to invest in a coat that will be sure to see you through the years, then I suggest sticking to the more classic colors and styles. Your winter wardrobe will thank you!
