Winter Coats that Work

Winter Coats

Winter Coats for Work

How many winter coats do you own?  Not enough?  I know, me either.

Although it is almost spring, right now is a great time to shop for a winter coat.  Many are on sale and financially speaking, right now is the best time to buy one (or two).

I say “financially speaking” because winter coats, like the ones shown above, are usually quite expensive.  If you can find one on sale now, that is perfect for your style and wardrobe – buy it.  Next winter, you will be so happy that you did.

While I am on the subject of winter coats, why not take an inventory of your winter coat wardrobe.  (It’s probably a good idea to do this step before you buy anything new).

Which of your coats did you wear the most this past winter?  Which did you wear the least?  Why, and why?  If you can answer these questions, then you will know what type of coats for which to shop.

Also, before you put away those winter coats, make sure that they are clean.  You really do not want to store them all summer long if they are dirty.  (P.S. why not clean the coats that you plan on giving away, too?  Don’t you think that the recipient would appreciate that?)

Where to Wear?

The style of the coats shown above would be perfect to wear to work, perfect with your dressy dresses, great for an evening out, ideal for church, and would certainly work with your casual outfits including jeans, as well.

Really, the coat styles above can be worn to almost any event in chilly weather.

Investment Pieces:

All of the winter coats above would be an investment piece.  These styles are pretty timeless.

Thoughts

I, for one, do not have an extensive inventory of winter coats.  Living in Dallas, we don’t need winter coats for a great part of the year.  Therefore, I have neglected this very important piece of clothing.

As I stated above, now is a great time to take an inventory of your winter coats.  Clean those you intend to keep, purge those that have become ratty, stained and are no longer repairable, give away those that no longer meet your needs, sell those that are of greater value, and of course, buy any styles / colors of which you are in need.

Personally, I should take my own advice and spend some time going through my winter coat wardrobe. 🙂

Happy winter coat shopping, my friends.
