We think white coats and jackets are the perfect winter wrap.  From dressy coats to puffers, they can be dressed up or go casual…you get to decide!

So let’s start with a casual look…puffers!  Calvin Klein’s quilted coat with a faux fur hood from Dillard’s is great for our Texas weather ($101.40).  And a bonus…it’s water-resistant. Another Dillard’s white puffer we are smitten with is Donna Karan’s faux fur-trimmed hooded puffer ($143.40).  The good news…both coats have been permanently reduced!

 Shearling and Sherpas meets the warm and cozy test!  A shearling knock-off we love is Top Shop’s biker jacket trimmed in brown faux leather ($150.00).  Wear it with slacks or jeans…the ideal “town and country” look. The perfect coat for our Texas weather is a Northface water repellent, reversible Sherpa parka…available at Dillard’s ($179).    

For the ultimate in a dressy coat, a wrap sets the pace for elegance.  Point proven with a Theory ($635) crepe wrap coat from Neiman Marcus. If you are like me, and like a bargain, you will love TJ Maxx’s wrap coat or H&M’s ($109.65) wool blend wrap.   Wear them over a dress or with slacks to the office, and after work to a Cliburn Series concert.

Ever since real furs became a fashion “no”…the quality of faux furs has escalated to a whole new level.  Bloomingdales proves my point with an affordable faux fur by Bagatelle NYC ($103.60). Popular style influencer, Fashion Jackson, shows us how to look ultra-chic in a white faux fur by Aqua from Bloomingdales ($134.40).  She’s pairing it with black-coated jeans, booties, and bag to give it a classy edge.

Rain, rain, come our way!  Be sure to take a look at a few of our favorite trenches from ASOS ($76), and Belk’s ($60) on our Pinterest board.  These coats are terrific for the office and also for those days you need to dash out in the rain. Calvin Klein’s trench jacket in faux wool is ideal for our winter/spring transition in Texas! ($101.40)   

I don’t know about you, but wearing a white coat makes me look forward to cold winter days and evenings!
