I have a weakness for a flashy winter coat. I currently have three. I know it seems excessive, but I love them. I have to have so many because I rarely buy a sensible winter coat in a neutral color or basic shape. I have a green coat, a yellow coat with a fur collar and a ruffly black one. Not a single one goes with everything. Sort of a bad economic move on my part. And here are some others that I am loving this winter:
However, I do realize I need a basic winter coat, but I think a plain black coat is sooo boring. Then, I saw this article on Lucky, "How to Make a Cheap Coat Look More Expensive." Lucky suggests adding a belt, a brooch or a collar to a boring old coat.
