Winter is here!
I really hoped that it was over after our deep freeze with temperatures of -40 degrees Celsius over the Christmas Holiday’s but no it wasn’t. Last week the temperature dropped again. Today it has started snowing. I have come to realize that every girl needs at least two types of coats this winter season.
The first is your puffer/parka jacket. In my opinion, these jackets are prefect for running errands, partaking in winter activities such as skiing, sleighing, etc and for being on the go. The other is a stylish wool coat for those nights out on the town, attending special events and to add that extra “umph” to your outfits.
I actually own two such coats. My first one is from Aritzia and the second is from Niche Fashion Luxury, a Vancouver based boutique (as featured). What I really love about this coat is its design with the waterfall/drape neckline and A-Line cut. I find that it’s really flattering on almost all body shapes. Secondly, the material is so soft and it keeps me warm. I don’t think this coat can be worn on those -40 days but for those warmer winter days, it’s perfect. I also really like the fact that this coat is Made in Canada. Rarely do I find clothes that are locally made.
I’m a huge fan of Kate Middleton and all her wool coats and now Meghan Markle. They wear these coats with such class and ease. A wool coat is a great statement piece that takes any outfit from an 8 to a 10!
Some girls are into shoes and other purses. I’m a coat girl. My husband’s very first gift to me while we were dating was a beautiful white wool coat. Because it was white, I rarely wore it out. Now, I regret not wearing it because it no longer fits.
Stay warm and remember no matter the color, coats are meant to be worn!
