Ageless Style Link-up!
We are ageless & we have style!!!
Nine fabulous, over 40 fashionistas take on a theme! The first Tuesday of each month our looks are revealed, & here we are today, showcasing How to Dress for the Cold!
We are full-on winter here in New England & we’ve already had several bitter cold days & gusty winds. I’m always chilly, even in the summer, so you can imagine how cold I feel this time of year. You NEED to invest in a thick, durable winter coat, so while you are looking for that perfectly cozy coat, why not choose a style you WANT!
I’ve purchased some super sturdy coats since moving here, but I’ve also been the lucky recipient of a few fabulous, one-of-a-kind coats from my mother-in-law that I will cherish forever. I’ve featured another one of her coats she gave me in a post earlier this year. She is such a fashionista & has impeccable taste, so I will never say no to anything she would like to share with me.
On those rare nights out with my hubby &/or friends, I rarely take off my coat as I never seem to warm up once I’m inside out of the cold. Having a statement coat or jacket not only keeps me seriously warm, but I’ve made my coat the statement piece of my look. That’s what I’ve done with this outfit as well. The coat is so bold & fierce; I kept the rest of my look monochrome, understated & simple.
This fabulous vintage 70s coat is a gorgeous camel shade, fits like a glove & has such a luxe feel. The faux fur trim around the neck, wrists & bottom hemline is an edgy finish that takes the classic cut of the coat to another level.
The buttons are starting to fade, but that will be an easy, fun little DIY fix for next winter season. It will feel like I got a brand-new coat when I change the hardware.
The statement coat isn’t just for those elegant evenings out, like back in the day. Even though it feels luxurious, you can create a perfect low-key, casual ensemble.
- faux leather pants & sneakers
- throw it over a slouchy tee, jeans & studded ankle boots
- fitted dress, stiletto pumps & ankle socks would be a fun spin
- loose slip dress, knee paired with high-heeled sandals
