The weather is getting colder, so it is time to start thinking about your outerwear. Below are some great winter jackets for all ages to make sure you have the best-dressed family wherever you go!

When I was a kid, my mom made sure I was always buttoned up before I went out into the cold. She came from the school of: you’ll get sick if you go outside with a wet head. So, it only makes sense that if you get cold, you will get a cold. Science does not agree with my mom, but let’s not let science get in the way of a good argument. 

As I got older, I realized that coats, while not always necessary, can be a key piece of a person’s wardrobe. If you live in the city where a lot of people see you walking around outside, your coat is all they see of your outfit. If you want to make a statement, you do it with your coat.  

A coat is also a good keeper of secrets. A beautiful coat can hide lumps and bumps, a spill on your blouse, or ill-fitting pants. Not feeling good about your look? Cover it with your coat. 

Winter Jacket Hacks: 

And here is a great tip from fashion stylist and personal shopper Ginger Burr. If you don’t have a defined waistline, wear a belt over your top, and then wear a jacket or coat. When the jacket is open, all anyone will see is the front of your belt, giving the illusion of you having a waist. BRILLIANT!  

Another very important fashion lady, Dayna Evans, suggests you wear your coat or jacket over your shoulders without putting your arms through the arms. She says it’s the only way she wears a coat and people actually take her photo walking down the street because she looks like “somebody.”  

However you decide to wear it, your coat says a lot about you. That is why the choice should not be taken lightly. Let me get you started. Here are several great coats for everyone in your family.

  • Wool Overcoat with Detachable Placket 

    I absolutely love this coat. It’s a classic pea-coat design with the added “hoodie” placket that you can remove for more formal occasions. The best of both worlds.
