As the temperature continues to dip closer towards the freezing mark I am forced to reach into my closet to find the right coat that is both stylish and warm. Growing up I used to think that what I wore inside was more important than the outside and while this may still be true for some people I've come to learn that the top layer is important too.

A fashionable coat often makes the first impression because people can't see what's underneath. Also, a good jacket will help dress up the most casual of outfits. The key to picking out a solid coat is picking one that accentuates your features (e.g. perhaps it has a belt to enhance your hourglass figure) and in a colour that matches your wardrobe. If you're unsure on colour I recommend black as it is a staple every woman should have in her closet. If you want to mix it up though try experimenting with different colours - most women generally know what colours are the most flattering on them. There are a great selection of coats available this year; sleek, refined and available in many show-stopping colors that will help cure your winter woes.  Good luck!
