Winters in the big apple can be magical, but it also can be quite dreary. You reach a point where you wonder, ‘ Will I ever get to feel the sun’s warmth on my face?’ and because of the damn windchill all you can think about is how you lived someplace warm, and just pray that it doesn’t get any worse by adding rain or snow into the mix. Even I, a winter lover, can get tired of it. But, just because I get tired of it, doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice looking awesome and fun! How, you many ask? Well, it’s very simple my friends. A good ol’ statement coat to brighten up my day.
I have to admit, I do get lazy, I am human after all. So I keep it simple, black jeans, sometimes leggings when my stomach turns into a black hole and consumes an obscene amount of food…. A black sweater (or any sweater/ shirt that I feel like wearing that day), appropriate footwear (depending on the weather), a scarf, and of course my coat. Voilà! A solution to all my winter problems.
Not sure what coat to go for? Well it all depends on your style, but I believe that since nowadays fashion is so accessible and there’s so much out there, it’s possible to look totally badass. I like to check out places like Zara, Aritiza, Century 21, and Banana Republic; since I know the quality of their clothing can be quite nice and will last if you take a little care of it.
On a bit of a budget? Go shopping towards the end of winter! Yes, at first it doesn’t make sense to buy a coat at the end of winter but I’ve gotten some really cool coats that’s were half the price, and lasted me more than one winter.
Check out some of my outfits where my coat brought it from a ‘Okay, it’s Monday and I just can’t’ to ‘heeeeeeeeeeey girrrrrrrl!’
