Do you have a coat that you love to wear? A winter coat that you look forward to wearing it again? Almost wanting the weather to be cold enough to get it out of the closet? Our theme this month is, you already guessed it right, coats!
Stylish Monday is created out of a Facebook group of Life and Style bloggers. Every month we interpret a theme in our own way, fashionable wise of course. It’s a fun way to be creative with clothing and accessories. And to see how other women interpret a theme chosen by someone else. It is a fabulous fashionable way to create something beautiful with other bloggers.
My not so perfect winter coat
I always have a lot of trouble finding a nice winter coat. The one I sold last year was one that I bought because I needed a coat, but I didn’t like it at all. Last year, that sounds far away, I finally found one that I love. You can see it on the blog post from last Friday.
It is just a simple long wool winter coat. I love that! Just two buttons, no strap, pockets and a collar. Simple and elegant. I hope you see that as my style. I received this one that I’m showing today, but I never wore it. Way too cold, no collar, no pockets. But a great purple color!
Shall we see what my charming fashion friends are wearing?

As a Wisconsin Gal, we have severe winters and live in parkas all season long. I have parkas of all styles, lengths, and colors filling my closet, but for this challenge I wanted more of a statement coat so I chose a very old pea coat that rarely gets worn. It’s a fun, unique coat, but not that practical for my climate.

In Interior Alaska, winter lasts about seven months. Temperatures can be anywhere between 40 below (or less) zero to slightly above the freezing point. While around the freezing point a loden coat works fine, a heavy down coat is a Must at 40 below. These coats make everyone look like the Michelin Men. Shearling or goat coats work fine down to -30C (~-22F).

I have a bit of an obsession with coats especially since I live in a snow belt where winters are long and frigid. And I am usually drawn to dramatic statement coats which I love to search for in thrift shops. That is where I found this Jordache white faux fur coat a few years ago and it cost less than $10. I don’t wear it often but when I do, I feel like a fancy polar bear!

As someone who wears a lot of black and denim, a fun coat is an instant game-changer. From animal print to bright red – I like my coats to be fun. Throw some faux fur into the mix, even better. And yes, I have been known to wear a coat over my pajamas!

I love styling coats and jackets in the winter; layering accessories, playing with shapes and colors. In today’s post, I am sharing a few thoughts on elevating your coat styling game.

Needless to say, living in Florida, I don’t get much of a chance to adorn my winter gear. Sure, we get a few days in the 50s, but generally, a leather jacket or wool poncho is all you need. So while I donated most of my ‘heavy winter coats from my New York life’ collection ages ago, I still have a few favorites, which I share on the blog.
The coat pictured here was purchased just a few years ago, as an in-between coat – not for weather that’s too cold, but cold enough for more than a wool poncho! Perfect for New York in November, pre-pandemic, 2019.

Winter coats, jackets, gloves, mittens, hats and scarves are all a must have living in Illinois! Of course, a girl can never have too many of varying colors, lengths and styles! I might just have two closets full!
This long length plaid (I’m always mad for plaid!) coat was a must have from Old Navy this year! It’s the first plaid coat in my collection! I think it pairs great with my star sweater and these navy fur trimmed boots. Every winter I think I might add a coat or two to my collection! After all, it is the thing everyone sees first in the winter!

I’ve had this snuggly leopard print coat from Chico’s for several years now, and find myself reaching for it again and again. It’s the perfect little layer for our milder winters, and for my cold office! Not to mention that anything leopard is always a good idea!

I think coats are a closet staple if you live in the Midwest. We have had our share of cold weather and snow as you will see from this post, today, but overall it is mild (that means in the 30s & 40s for us). Speaking of closet staples, if you don’t own a Winter White or Cream one yet, you should.
I think a classic wool coat in cream will be timeless and it can last you for several years to come. I love mine (it’s from Loft from last year and both Loft and Old Navy have almost identical ones this year). Stop by the blog today to see sweet Vivian also, in a pretty blush pink coat.

It has turned really cold and frosty here in the UK so I need a warm coat. This vintage cream one is perfect as it’s long and has a hood to keep the snow off my hair…yes, we’ve had snow! I found it in a charity shop for less than £10…such a fantastic bargain!

This fur leopard coat is reversible to a rain coat… it’s over 15yrs old and will never go out of style!
What a great collection of fun and stylish winter coats isn’t it!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
And now it is time to party!
