Welcome to January, guys.
Think frozen fingers, aching noses, and frostbitten toes.
Black ice, waist-high snow, and falling icy daggers of doom.
Every trek to the library is treacherous, every walk to class an adventure.
Luckily God (or the Fashionista in the Sky, or the Cro-Magnon man, or whomever else you believe in) invented coats to keep us warm, cute and classy.
Not trashy, girls, please not trashy.
|Oh, Snookie. What ever shall we do with you?|
I don't want to step on good old Giorgio's Armani-clad insteps (so much more painful than stepping on toes), but style and fashion are both valuable and both fun.
Fashion is something you experiment with, something that can change with day and mood, and something that's a very useful tool in the journey to finding your style. There's absolutely nothing wrong with taking a little time to get to the final style (which can, and probably should, evolve a bit over the years). If you don't know what your style is yet, don't rush into someone else's.
"It would be very hard for me to do things somebody else's way." Well said, Giorgio. If you aren't sure what your way is yet, you probably won't want to drop a million dollars on a coat.
|I'm pretty sure this would *never* be worth a million dollars to me.|
If you think you might like the North Face Puffer Jacket look, but don't want to pay $200 to $400, you can achieve a similar look for much less.
|Hollister Mission Beach, $60|
|Charlotte Russe Ruffle-Waist Moto Jacket, $39.99|
|Forever 21 Wool-blend Tweed Coat, $24.80|
I'm trivializing things, but it's just a thought.
|Papaya Double Breast Coat, $21.99|
|Express Belted Trench Coat, $99.99|
What pieces do you buy for quality, and which do you like to experiment with?
