What is the first thing seen when you arrive from November to May?
And following the law that we all know and respect about first impressions, your coat needs to be part of an ensemble that says you HAVE arrived, even before you get there!
When I dress for the day, I dress in 4 stages. Number 1 is shoes – what heel do I need, sexy, professional, comfort walking, snow boots? Number 2 is my coat – I want to choose what is appropriate for the environment (coldness or rain etc) and the formality of the event, and to match my shoes.
It is likely you have far more garment choices than coat choices, and when your shoes and your coat now harmonize in some way – pattern, color, texture etc. then the rest of the outfit (3rd stage) falls in to place, along with the accessories (4th) you need to finish the look.
Here are some great coats, and guess what – they are now all on SALE! And like it or not – it IS still winter.
Think of this coat as a refined casual jacket – you know the (grubby?)one that perhaps you throw on to run an errand? This is soft, comfortable, easy to drive in and with a colorful scarf and gloves is a pulled together look.
Urban Outfitter Dolce Vita Gaetana Faux Fur Coat
There is a big difference between this super warm coat and what our mom’s put us in from LLBean. This coat can stand up to a windy evening on the way to the theater, or to work in Manhattan. Long coats, especially when paired with boots are so very warm.

Stand Collar Long Coat

Not as warm as the two above, but as I was searching coats I came across it. I have one similar and I am not joking – I get a complement EVERY time I wear it. It is amazing. Get it and wear with a dress if possible on milder days.
