When you live in Iowa you definitely don’t lack options in the coat department. You need a waterproof jacket for rainy weather, a windproof jacket for windy weather and of course winter jackets for all occasions. This includes puffy coats for snow storms and wool peacoats for fancier occasions.
By now, I personally am sick of wearing coats all together, but seeing these two Fashionionistas on an afternoon shopping trip inspired me to rekindle my broken relationship with coats, at least until spring rolls around. What I love about these Fashionistas is that the basic breakdown of their outfits are the same, however each of their personal styles shine through in the small details. Both have on long wool coats perfect for the brisk winter weather that is still lingering as we enter March. What’s great about their jackets is that each of them still look fashionable despite the fact that their coats cover majority of their outfits. The details such as the embroidery, color and fur help them stand out from those around them as well as from each other.
Both of these Fashionistas are proof that just because it is winter and majority of our outfits are covered by our coats, doesn’t mean we have to give up on fashion all together. So the next time you are shopping for a winter coat, go for one that expresses your personal style. Whether that be through toggled buttons, faux fur lining or a fun pattern, choosing a coat with detail will promise to keep you fashionable even when you are freezing your bum off.
