This is a project I’m working on in my own wardrobe right now, and I understand from comments and emails that I’m not alone! I personally have decided that I’d like to get a longer, straight, NOT double-breasted, possibly concealed button wool coat.
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.
The Patterned Coat
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?
