This post covers how to stay warm and in style by topping any outfit with a coat that suits your lifestyle.
What happens when a Bomb Cyclone and an Atmospheric River merge?
16 inches of rain falls over a 48 hour period. In October. This is typically the most beautiful month of the year here in Marin and the entire San Francisco Bay Area.
Not the weekend before last. It rained like a mofo causing all kinds of flooding, stalled vehicles, accidents. All the jokes about people freaking out when it rains in California were acted out, in real-time. People lost their minds and it was mayhem for 48 hours solid. We really are weather wimps out here.
Staying warm in style is possible
The storm has passed and it’s sunny and warm here again like it usually is. But it was a big (and early) reminder that winter is coming. Cold days are ahead. You need to figure out how to stay warm in style, and stat. I’m here to help. This week I’ve found incredible coats to keep that tush of yours warm and cozy all winter long.
My big caveat on this is, I don’t live in a very cold climate. We do not get snow or extreme cold. I have a Columbia long puffer coat that I bust out anytime it drops below 60 degrees. My husband calls it my sleeping bag. I’m a cold-weather sissy.
So if you live in a cold climate, you may snicker at my California version of cold-weather coats. I hear you but I did my best to include options that most could incorporate into their winter closet at some level. My goal is that you stay warm, feel pulled together, and look stylish while wearing any of these coats.
What styles are hot for keeping you warm
If you want to dabble in some of this seasons coat trends, without breaking the bank, I have some great options. Here are a few of the must have styles that are on my radar this year:
Teddy bear coats
Faux fur coats (this is not new, but I’m so happy it’s still happening)
Puffer coats, but make them elevated
I’m sharing a examples of these trends as well as a few classic coats. While trends are fun, you can never go wrong with a classic.
So let’s do this!
Teddy bear coats—this seasons fun trend
Faux fur coats will keep you warm and in style
Elevated puffy coats
This navy blue one comes in tons of colors and is an elegant way to stay warm. It also has an amazing price point. The slate blue color on this puffy is what makes this one a notch above your basic coat. There are side zippers at the bottom and a removable hood so it’s functional on top of looking good.
Classic coats are always in style
