VINTAGE COATS

Ahhhh! It’s finally starting to feel like winter here in Texas which means it’s time to pull out the coats! I’m sure those of you in the Northern states and Northern globe have already been feeling the cold temperatures but just because the weather is cold and the skies are gray does not mean that our wardrobe has to be compromised. You can still cover up with a warm coat in style…….

When I think vintage......the trench coat comes to mind. The trench style coat has been a popular fashion since the 1800's and continues to be recreated in every era of the fashion industry. The three coats featured today are my personal favorites, cashmere, wool, and leather.  These fabrics are classics in the fashion industry because they too have been in use since the 1800’s, the fabric is exceptionally warm and modish.
The featured cashmere coat is a classic and a "must have fashion", according to Glamour magazine and top designers.  The camel shade is the new black in the fashion world so if you ladies are all about vogue and vintage, this coat delivers the best of both worlds!

For the fierce Lovelies, this posh, darker leather, camel shaded coat is for you…..sport this HOT tube dress along with these awesome boots and accessories……Oooolala ! Who said you had to look dreary in this wintry climate???

If you are anything like me, black is an imperative part of my wardrobe and this black, wool, embroidered coat is perfect for those cold winter days upon us. Black is always classy and goes well with any attire and it can be worn casually or extravagantly. Whatever the fad is or your color preference check out online sellers before going to your local retail stores ! Chances are you will find a much better buy with vintage sellers, after all "the novelties of one generation are only the resuscitated fashions of the generation before last!"
