THE DRESSING ◽ TIPS

How many coats do you have? 

 

I’m sure it depends on where you live. But even here in Texas, I have several coats.  It can be really cold or just cool, or breezy, or any kind of weather at all, on any given day!  I enjoy having short and long coats, one for damp or rainy weather, and fashionable and casual and dressy! 

 

Why not? 

 

I have a few classic coats that I’ve had for years, and then the trendier ones I tend to just shop for at discount stores at an affordable price, since they probably won’t be worn more than one or two seasons.

Look for sales, comfort, and style when you purchase a new coat.  And also check the label for washing instructions.  I love a good coat and I'm so excited that winter is nearing, so that coats and scarves and hats – oh my – can be worn for all sorts of seasonal fun!

Here are a few coats I’d recommend, if you’re out shopping for one...just click and shop!

Plaid
I LOVE this plaid coat from Target. I’ve seen it in the store several times. The colors and the style are so stylish and trendy! At $48, it seems like a great buy for this season’s winter breezes.
Lavender
I just bought a lavender coat from J. Crew and one like it is on sale on line. I love it, because it’s different and I found a fun teal/navy/lavender scarf to go with, at The Gap!
Puffer
Are you a fan of the puffer type jackets? Nordstrom Rack has several choices in several colors! This one has a removable hood, and check out the back view – so pretty! I like the navy, as it contrasts well with so many fall colors.
Trench
Maybe you like the trench coat look, but want something a bit different. I think this cute one from Urban Outfitters with the plaid panel down the back is SO CUTE! The contrast of the two different fabrics is unique and fun.
Gray
Gray is always a great choice in a coat. It goes with the nicest of outfits, and also a casual look of jeans and a tee. I love this single breasted choice by Anne Klein, found at TJ Maxx. Did you know you can order online from TJ Maxx?
High Pink
I had to include this pretty in pink coat with the high neck collar. I think it’s so classy and pretty, and just the coat for shopping or going out on a date! It’s from Zara and so chic!
Teddy
If you prefer cozy, you might like this Teddy coat from Kohls. It comes in a few colors, and the reviews are great for comfort and fit. It looks like a coat you might want to live in all day…
