Stunning and Practical - The Perfect Winter Coat

Sadly, it is that time of year again. For us girls in the cold north, practicality starts to trump fashion. It seems like every girls wardrobe changes from the cutest bright colored little sundresses to lumpy layers of brown, black and gray.

It really hit me a few years ago at Midway Airport. It was February and I had just returned from a lovely trip to Southern California. In a few short hours I went from trees with green leaves, flowers blooming and exuberant California clothing to the drab sea of wool that is Chicago in the winter. It truly is amazing how little color you see on the streets in the coldest months. Heck, a light brown coat sticks out like a traffic cone.

Which brings me to why you need a brightly colored winter coat. Life is too short to spend 4 months blending into the asphalt.

The coat shown above is a real cutie. For one thing it is completely reversible! One side is a black and white checked tweed, and the other is a bright cherry red mohair. Quintessential 1950's styling, over sized buttons and 3/4 length sleeves.

And just think, if you accidentally brush the side of a car and end up covered in salt residue, you can just flip it inside out!

Available now on Ebay.
