Snow in the Chicagoland area is a given, and according to the meteorologists, we our first snow coming on Thursday! It’s quite late for our first snowfall, but it is going to be a big one from what I hear! Six to twelve inches and 50 mile an hour winds- yikes! Welcome to winter!
That said, I was on the hunt for a new winter coat and found a fantastic one that I am so excited about! Usually, I buy coats for warmth first and fashion second (it’s tough to find a coat that looks nice AND protects me from the hard winds and blistery cold.) But this Asymmetrical Belted Coat from Calvin Klein should hopefully do the trick!
It is wool and I love that it comes down past my butt to keep my midsection nice and toasty. The wide pointed collar with faux leather trim adds a stylish twist to ordinary coats, as does the asymmetrical cut of the coat. It zips up too- which I prefer because I get get it on and off way faster than buttons!
And I LOVE the belt..really defines my waist compared to other coats where I feel like a big puffy marshmallow. The color is perfect so it won’t show pet hair or makeup around the collar like my old cream colored winter coat did!
They do offer a beautiful navy blue version but I think black is more classic and versatile…I can pair lots of hats/scarves/gloves with it and it will go great with black boots or my cognac boots, too!
I also just picked up this adorable hat from the Loft Outlet with a gift card I had…too cute!
My current Ashley Leather Crossbody purse from Coach (similar styles here) also works well with the coat…love the metallic color and it certainly pops against the coat! I could go on and on about how much I love this bag, but I digress…that’s another blog post :-)
So happy to find this coat where fashion meets function! I’ll test it out and let you know if it holds up against all this lake effect snow we are supposedly going to get!
