Back to Basics: Outerwear Back to the Basics: Outerwear

As somebody who hates being cold, Winter in Japan can be a pain. Sometimes it is so cold that while I take a shower I can feel my entire body thawing. Yet, I like Winter for I seem to notice that people tend to be more dressed up. I think it is becaue of the outerwears; they add a certain elegance to Winter outfits. And without further a do, let me give you a list of outerwear I think every self respecting girl should own.

Pea coat: I like pea coats because they can be either casuals or formal. I prefer them in dark colors line navy or brown.

Colorful coat: a colorful coat will always brighten you up on those gloomy winter days. With a color that will match your skin tone, you will look radiant and automatically attract attention. And since we are on the topic of color, I am thinking that a camel coat is a great investment to make because it never really goes out of style.

Trench coat: I confessed my love for trench coats more than enough in this blog so I am not even going to start on this post.

Leather jacket: to toughen up any girly girl outfit.

Mod's coat: can't get enough of this coat. If I had one I would wear it everyday. A short one will be easily paired with anything but I prefer longer ones. Imagine having one with a removable fur collar and removable sleeves. You can turn it into a vest for Spring.

Knit coat: One those days you do not feel like wearing a heavy coat and still want to be warm.

Cape coat: to add drama to your days

Printed coat: to show your fun side

Down or Puffer coat: for really really cold times

I am guessing you may say that there are way too many coats for a person to own. Truly you do not need all these coats. You can just invest in a timeless piece that will last you a lifetime. And if you really can afford it, you can gradually add more outerwears to your collection.
