How to Revamp your Favorite Wool Coat

I’ve had this wool coat for a number of years and love the challenge of wearing it differently each year.  A wool coat for fall and winter is an absolute necessity.  If you are able to grab two, a black and tan one are great starters before you break out into the more trendy varieties.  Whatever you end up choosing, being able to have versatility with your outerwear will be important; as much as you’ll be wearing your coat, make your first impression, the best impression.

 

How to Wear It

I love this wool coat I got from Victoria’s Secret several years ago because it is a classic.  Note that I said that I purchased it several years ago and I am still wearing it.  To freshen it up a bit, I decided to wear a scarf, but not in the traditional way.  I added my patterned scarf and belted it along with my coat.  The scarf added layers and the belt added dimension and changed the shape of my coat to create a totally different look than how you saw me rock it last year.

 

Adding belts and scarves are a couple of ways to wear the same coat over and over, but make it a statement piece.  You can also add brooches to your coat for some embellishments in addition to layering gloves and hats with your coat to round out your look.

 

Do you have your wool coat? How will you rock it this season?
