This time of year is all about the outerwear. Well, let’s be honest. In Chicago, it’s outerwear weather about 9 months out of the year. But I digress.
With a trip to San Francisco coming up this weekend and Fashion Week right around the corner, outerwear is an all-consuming obsession for me right now. The right coat/jacket/cape/vest is THE thing that everyone is going to see. Keeping in mind that I probably won’t have the opportunity to “check my wrap at the door” and show off my impressive layering and accessorizing skills, I’m gonna have to figure out another way to impress. Enter the coat.
So many options.
I’m sorry, but you can never go wrong with a parka. Always ready for whatever unexpected weather might come your way.
Black. I like a black coat to have some texture or an interesting shape to make it stand out.
Fur (faux or real) always gets me. And a coat that sort of winks at the 60s often finds its way into my closet.
And what I never really thought I needed, a printed coat. This one from Dries Van Noten makes me want to squeal with glee. Can I have it please? Pretty please? With whipped cream and a cherry on top?
