1. Find a color that you love
Of course, you can choose black, and there is nothing wrong with that! But, no matter what color that you choose, find something you really love and that when you wear it, you carry yourself well. Ultimately, the way you carry yourself in this coat, is how confident you will feel. And, based on my experience, when you carry yourself well, you usually get a lot of compliments!
2. Find a style that will best fit your style and body type.
3. Be OK with investing in this jacket
I struggle with putting out a lot of money for clothing, but when it comes to staple pieces, I am able to justify the purchase. My biggest struggle is investing in OTK boots, I think they look silly on me. But, everyone keeps telling me I have the perfect frame for it-more like really long legs. But, no matter what it must come from within. Unlike OTK boots, a winter coat is meant to be worn over and over again. Be sure to find something that will last and that will fit well, if you decide to make it an investment. I spend a lot of time in cooler temperatures (like Colorado) thus making winter coats an important investment in my closet.
