Style inspiration: wearing a white coat in winter
There’s something so very chic about a white coat in the winter. I like the classic look of a basic white coat, and it looks especially pretty with the snow all around!
The first white coat I ever had, years and years ago, was a lovely short, fitted, belted jacket with a corduroy feel to it. One day I wore it when biking to work, and it started raining while I was cycling. The rain water splashed up all over me as I rode, and by the time I arrived at work, my poor little coat was streaked with mud all up the back!
I was heartbroken. The mother dear took it to the dry cleaner, and after cleaning it about three times in a row, they finally managed to get most of the mud out. The back of the jacket was still very lightly grey, but you couldn’t even notice it unless you knew to look for the very faint stains.
The mother dear sweetly came to the rescue again this year when my old red winter coat literally started falling apart on me and I was in desperate need of a new winter coat. This gorgeous white jacket was one of the coats we discovered on our shopping trip.
I like the contrast between the white coat and the black faux leather pants and heeled ankle boots. And these delightful little clasps on the front of the jacket break up the blank canvas so nicely!
This colorful silk scarf peeking out the top of the coat is just right for this look too.
Although I like a long coat to wear in the winter (have to stay as warm as possible!), when you get slightly warmer days out—like we’ve thankfully had for the past couple weeks—sometimes a lighter coat is where it’s at. That’s where a jacket like this comes on (though, obviously, not a good idea to wear a white coat when it’s mucky out—I learned my lesson there!).
Something else I like about this look? The hood. Always good to have options with a winter coat.
