Fall Essential - The White Coat9:17 AM
The weather outside has been a bit gray, so I've started to pull my fall/winter clothes out of storage. Nothing beats fall and winter fashion. I love the jackets and the layering and all the accessories; hats, gloves, scarves. One of my essentials for this fall is a white coat. One thing I do have to point out is that fall in Seattle is more like winter so I bet most of you will not be pulling out your winter coats until much much later than I.
I am loving this white coat on Victoria Beckham. I love how she pulls off the all white outfit with the red accessories. Not many people could pull this off and look that good.
I have one white winter coat and it doesn't get worn very often, but when it does, I get compliments on it even walking down the street. Amongst the sea of black winter coats (and NorthFace fleeces, I DO live in the Pacific Northwest after all) the white coat stands out, but in a good way.
I went looking for another white coat and here are some of my favorite picks of this season.
I just love the big collar of these two jackets. The big buttons of the Mackage coat on the left make it a bit more fun and casual. The Soia and Kyo is more dressy but can still be worn with jeans. I love the trench coat with a slightly skirted bottom. It gives the classic trench an added twist.
I am a huge fan of Trovata. I just adore the detailing of their clothes and the coat on the left is no exception. It's hard to see in the picture but Trovata takes care of every detail down to the lining of the inside to the thread that the buttons are sewn on. Trovata is worth the price because you can tell that every detail is well thought out. This trench can easily go into fall/winter with a bit of extra layering underneath and a dark plaid scarf to the spring to wear over cute floral print dresses. This one is on sale! I'm very tempted to get this one now.
The Soia and Kyo coat on the right is just the perfect winter coat. Since I'm petite, long coats that are thicker wool like this can overwhelm me so I really like my heavier coats to be shorter. Don't get me wrong, in a winter like ours, you definitely need longer coats, but I leave those to my trench or to the ones that aren't as thick. Adding the belt helps so much because it gives you a shape and you're not just a blob in a white coat.
I would love to have Victoria Beckham's white coat as it just looks like sheer perfection, but I can't, so I will settle for any one of these picks.
