For many of us, a really SERIOUS winter coat is a necessity in the capsule wardrobe. Realistically, I couldn’t get through the winter without my parka that sort of resembles a cross between a sleeping bag and a wee portable padded room…
But let’s focus on getting a more attractive, more widely useful winter coat. I’ve chosen a mixture of accent colors and neutrals, and tossed in yet another scarf because it’s difficult to have too many scarves!
My friend in black and brights wants a statement coat to stand out in the crowd of black – and this blue should do the trick, eh?
My lady in navy is looking for a dark neutral coat, but some pretty flowers for an accessory. This coat has lovely flaired sleeves, and the snap at the neckline is designed to resemble a flower! The boots will be ideal with khaki, and will be a classic accent with navy.
If you have a lot of patience, you can find a winter coat that includes both of your neutrals! (Actually, if you have enough patience, you can find anything. I spend 8 hours a day looking at clothes and accessories, and I swear that there’s nothing imaginable that’s not being manufactured somewhere…) While this lovely woman strongly considered a dark neutral scarf, when she spotted the perfect blue of her favorite accent color, she grabbed it and ran!
It might take months to find an accent color coat, but when you find one, it’s meant for you!
Ms. Navy and Grey has shown a fondness for sweatshirty, soft and snuggly, so this is the obvious coat to capture her heart. Another pretty but warm scarf is perfect with this coat, but will also look great with lots of the wardrobe already in place.
An olive or khaki coat would be obvious with this wardrobe, but this stunningly simple maroon beauty caught my eye, and I couldn’t find anything that chased this one from my mind. Again, while this is a great scarf for winter, it can also be worn with the cardigans, tee shirts, blouses, etc…
Tomorrow, more accessories! Woman does not live by one pair of earrings…
