and the high streets have cozied up with a fabulous new collection of winter warmer coats*. What is your style and where do you shop?

  1. In the first large picture, the model is wearing a wool mix pale grey coat classic and stylish, with an oversized camel coloured scarf wrapped several times around her neck. In her right hand, she is sporting a rather lovely large camel coloured handbag topped off with indigo skinny jeans.
  2. In the second picture, top of the frame, the model is wearing a black cocoon coat also a wool mix. Under that, she is dressed in a black shirt and black jeans. This look can also be dressed up with a sparkly jewelled scarf in a colour of your choice.
  3. The bottom picture shows a model wearing a classic parka in pale grey with an oversized fur hood for maximum warmth. I love a bit of faux fur trim.

Tell us where you shop and what’s your style of winter coat?

  1. Since downsizing I don’t have as many as I used to but it is nice to have a couple different styles from which to choose. When it gets bitter cold I’m more concerned with being warm. Years ago I had this full length suede coat with fur lining that I snagged at Costco’s. It was the warmest winter coat I ever owned and I’m still kicking myself for getting rid of it.

  2. I like that there are so many different styles of coats and I think that’s why I own several, so I can choose the style that works for my wardrobe that day. For example, I wear a dressier coat to church and a functional coat for skiing.
