You can count on many months of below freezing temps & wild amounts of snow in New England, so solid, durable outwear is a must! Your outerwear is the first thing people will notice when you arrive & the last thing they see when you leave, so you coat should make a statement. Think about color, silhouette or unique detailing to your coat, & most importantly, it should have a great fit!
My Mother-in-Law was such a fashionista with impeccable taste. She purchased the highest quality garments & accessories she could afford. I’ve been blessed to be on the receiving end of many things she has wanted to give away.
The color of this coat is so rich, luxurious & completely makes the outfit. Heck! It is the outfit! I didn’t want to compete with the coat, so I choose other pieces that coordinated as close to the gorgeous purple color of the coat. I added minimal jewelry to break up the head to toe monochrome look.
What would be first on your wish list if you could shop one of your relatives’ closet?
