- Coat Categories
I tried to choose a range of possible candidates for my new coat, so I created 6 categories of coats and chose a representative from each. My categories are (1) patterned, (2) bright, (3) a shade or tone of my neutral color, (4) textured, (5) pastel, and (6) a complementary neutral.
In order to have a base upon which to build hypothetical outfits for my coats, I chose an outfit which is typical of what I wear this time of year. I have to give a big recommendation for these boots – I bought them about a month ago, and was able to wear them for a long walking day right out of the box! The come in 5 widths, and seven colors, and they are snazzy looking, too…

- The Bright Coat
- The Shade or Tone of my Neutral Coat
- The Textured Coat
- The Pastel Coat
- The Complementary Neutral Coat
While I was pretty sure, going into this exercise, that I would probably choose a tweed coat, looking at all of these attractive options convinced me that my initial choice was right on target. I’d really be interested in doing this exercise with a couple of other neutral colors – is anyone interested? What colors?
