I was running around Paris doing a few errands the other day and felt the chill of winter in the air! So, now that it’s cold outside, let’s talk about winter coats.
Are you ready for them?
I admit it, I’m not ready for winter! I’d rather it be sunny and warm to have the occasional weekend day at the beach! There is an upside to fall and winter, all the warm, winter coats! A coat can really make an outfit.
Wether it’s something simple and modern but updated through color, like this winter white one from Paul and Joe, or a bright, vibrant stand out color.
Then there’s all the patterned coats. I’m particularly loving big, giant plaids for fall.
Then of course, there is the consideration of warmth factor. I have winter coats of varying degrees of warmth. This one is perfect for chilly weather. In NYC it gets brrrrrrrrr freezing coooolllllldddd, like the kind of cold that must be just like the Arctic, right? Or at least it seems like it when your walking around and the wind is whipping down the streets, through the buildings creating these suupppper cold wind tunnels. What about all the blizzards NYC has been having over the years too! So for those days, I have down filled parkas that go down to my ankles. Really, at that point, the fashion is JUST like a sleeping bag, and I’m fine with that!
Have you guys ever been to Chicago in the winter? Just when I thought it couldn’t get any colder than NYC!
During last fashion week in Paris and Milan I wore 2 coats. No, really, two winter coats! One wool, and the other a fur coat I found at a vintage shop in Paris. It was the only way to go around from show to show without freezing!
So what style of winter coats are you looking forward to wearing this winter?
P.S. who says you can’t wear white in the winter, ha????!!!!~~~
