When I was living in Seattle, coats were not really a big part of my wardrobe. As fashionable as I thought myself to be, I wore all-weather anoraks just like everyone else. (Don’t look at me like that, we don’t carry umbrellas!) Now that I’ve settled in in the Northeast, having a selection of jackets and coats for any occasion seems absolutely essential. After all, what looks perfect with a stovepipe skinny jean may not always look right with a flare.
These women have drastically different looks, but I love them both equally. Above, I mean, that’s a statement coat if ever there was one, right? It’s cool and (probably) warm at the same time. With it’s extra-long length, she was right to pair it with skinny, rolled jeans and her flat booties.
Below, she’s put together a very classic, sort of uptown-feeling look with a double-breasted trench coat, leather gloves and flared jeans. She looks sophisticated and warm, and the leopard print scarf adds a perfect little something extra.
Do you have a go-to coat or a selection to choose from? How do you decide which to pair with your jeans?
