Now that we are really getting into the swing of things for winter, I decided I’ll do a post on styling winter coats. Winter coats are not always necessarily the giant puffer coats you know and love/hate. They can be nice and not too bulky if you style them correctly to stay warm. Now mind you, I live in the lower part of New York, so we don’t usually get freezing cold temps or a ton of snow. So far this year, it’s been fairly mild if I’m being honest. So if you live in a freezing cold climate, be sure to adjust these for what makes sense for you. I wouldn’t want to be responsible for you freezing in 5 feet of snow! Please bear in mind that is was actually raining when I took these photos, so don’t mind the visible rain! How crazy is the iPhone camera quality, honestly!
I found this green plaid coat at Mango after searching for one for about a year now, linked here. It’s not super heavy so it’s best for days that are not too cold, but it’s roomy enough that you can layer underneath if you need. I think a statement coat is one of the best ways to make a simple outfit more interesting and that was partially why I was so excited to finally get this coat! I paired it with just a plain white sweater and jeans and matching green shoes to complete the look.
Another coat I had been looking for for about a year is a navy wool coat. I found this one at Mango and am very pleased with it, linked here! It’s super warm, the wool is really heavy and it’s roomy enough for layering. As an alternative to a basic black coat, I think navy is a good one to have also. I decided to pair it with a plain beige turtleneck sweater, some tan mom jeans and leopard boots. I love pairing a really neutral outfit to make the navy stand out more.
This white faux shearling coat is old from Something Navy, but I found a really similar one this year at Mango, linked here! It’s not quite as long, but the material is the same. This is one of my favorite coats because of the sheer size of it. It’s absolutely massive and I love that. I’ve told you before that I love pairing black and brown together, so underneath my giant coat, that’s what I did! I think adding the white coat on top makes the dark tones of the sweater and jeans come more full circle. It gives you a light, medium and dark element in the whole look which keeps it really interesting.
Finally, the ever popular teddy coat. I’ve had this baby since last year from Something Navy and I wear it religiously for much longer than the weather permits if we’re honest. It’s so cozy and truly my favorite coat that I own. Mine is sold out, but I found a similar one from Mango and linked it here! I wanted to keep it really simple and do an all black outfit underneath to let the texture and color of the teddy coat really stand out. This is definitely a go to outfit for me throughout the fall and winter!
