As stated in my previous post Autumn has ended for me and Winter has begun, but I can’t complain because now I can wear my wool coats. In high school I was that kid that never wore a coat, even in -40 weather I was walking to school in my ‘Love Pink’ sweatshirt and knock-off Uggs ( I couldn’t afford the real ones ). I thought I was really cool. Clearly I was not ( please tell me I was not the only one to wear such things in their adolescent years ) This year however I have come to accept that I live in city that frequently experiences below freezing weather and have decided to stock up on all the winter accessories in order to stay warm and relatively dry in the coming months. Now I will admit a wool coat will not keep me warm in the -40 weather that is sure to come, but for now it works just fine.
Currently I possess 3 wool coats: a camel coat ( styled Here ), a hooded black coat ( outfit soon to come ) and this lovely wrap coat I recieved as yet another birthday present from my parents ( I was really spoiled wasn’t I?! ). I find that the wool coat is just as versatile as a cardigan as they can be worn anything! Plus I feel incredibly sophisticated and important when I walk down the street in a long wool coat, I’m not the only one right?
I styled this wonderful dark grey wool coat with a turtleneck vest and a pair of basic denim jeans for a casual, yet put together look. I decided to go for a really basic look underneath my coat in order to let the coat really shine. The turtleneck on the sweater draws your eyes to my neckline where you are able to acknowledged the dramatic lapels this coat features.
