A story in T Magazine highlights some of the best lightweight coats of the season. Every coat in the editorial is styled with the same white shirt (HERMÈS), handbag (LOEWE) and shoes (SAINT LAURENT). Yet every look is unique. It got me thinking about the things I like to shop for…shoes, bags, coats…and why.
The way I dress today is pretty basic. I no longer differentiate between work and weekend. Comfort is key…followed by being pulled together which varies with my mood and purpose that day. With that in mind, the accessories make the outfit…coat included.
This fall in particular, I am finding a wide array of very appealing coats to consider. What will make it easier for me to narrow down the options are the weight (I won’t need heavy in California), versatility in style, and “newness” to my wardrobe. Texture, color, detail and, of course price, will play a big part. I’m starting to compile my list but it’s nowhere near complete. To be continued as the season unfolds…
