Here in NC we are fixing to be hit with our first blast of the winter chills, and by the looks of the forecast chilly days are here to stay...
at least through the week.
When it comes time to throw on coats, hats, mittens, and scarves it may hit you that your Outerwear wardrobe has been little more than an after thought. Considering your coat and cold weather accessories are your first impression on a cold day, you should take careful care to build an outerwear wardrobe.
A basic Outerwear Wardrobe should have no less than 3-5 options ranging from weekend to formal depending on your lifestyle. Invest in your coats as they should last no less than 2 years, and add fun colors and textures with your accessories.
To guide you in shopping for your winter looks I have broken down some options for you to build your wardrobe.
Merry & Bright
Go bold in color. Add interest through choosing contrasting accessories or textures like leather and faux fur.
Pattern coats are a fun way to dress up your basics. Plaid is a classic so you can invest without worry of it going out of style next year. Choose an unexpected shape like this cape for added interest.
