I always try to find a nice balance between fashion and warmth – I want to look good, but I have a very low tolerance for cold weather. If you’re like me, a faux fur jacket, leather jacket, or suede jacket might be the way to go – they’re available in a variety of fashionable colors and lengths, and tend to be surprisingly warm on the inside, as they are often insulated with wool.
There are certain items of clothing that I am absolutely infatuated with, and coats and jackets are at the top of the list. I love outerwear, because it’s available in so many different styles and at so many different prices, so you know there’s a combination out there for you.
Although a winter sports jacket might not be appropriate for all social situations, keep in mind that these are often extremely well made, offering thick insulation to keep your teeth from chattering. Alternatively, a tweed jacket might look more stylish, but you’ll probably have to layer other items to get the same level of warmth.
When shopping for jackets, it’s important to consider your wants – are you looking for something warm, dressy, durable, fashionable? Do you want to be able to wear your jacket skiing down a mountain, walking up the street, or dining at a fancy restaurant?
