the Maxi Coat.
In fact this classic, and stylish coat made the cut for Marie Claire Magazine as one of the best Winter coats for 2015.
Here are some of my favorite picks and why I love a Maxi Coat.
I truly believe that the Maxi Coat is not only fabulous and flattering, they are an essential
item of clothing that every woman should have in her closet.
Even when they are not the "trend" of the season, this coat is timeless.
They can be worn with jeans or a classy dress, dress them up or down.
Wear them with boots, heels, or even keds.
A Maxi Coat is extremely versatile, they come in such a variety of fabrics,
so they fit the bill for virtually every climate and lifestyle.
If I could have two Maxi Coats one would definitely be in this color.
Such a soft, feminine hue and I suppose leaning toward the neutral side.
Of course, black is always a sensible choice, and always looks great on every age and shape.
I do have a fashion crush on neutral tones, and I will be purchasing a neutral Maxi coat for myself this season.
I don't think a woman is ever too "mature," to have a fashion crush, do you?
In fact, I hope that I have them all the way into my 90's and that I am still wearing my pink lipstick too!
You know I am in love with grey, Ladies, just look at this coat and oh these boots!
Such a slimming look.
This coat is too young for me, with it's texture, and I also feel it needs a very slim frame to carry off the look and handle the bulk.
But just notice the mix of neutrals and all of this scrumptious layering.
Dressing ourselves is much like dressing our homes.
We are the pallet and then we choose the colors, layer the design, adding to and taking away until we achieve the desired image.
I wanted to include accessories in this post too.
Many of you live in very cold climates where hats, gloves and boots are more than just a
"look," they are a necessity.
I thought this was a great example on how to complement your wardrobe,
staying stylish, comfortable and warm.
Once again thinking of you my friends who have the bitter cold weather.
You need to stay cozy.
Do you have a Fashion Crush?
