Your One Winter Necessity

Everywhere we turn, we read what we “must have” for the winter season. Layering essentials, must have accessories, “the” hand bag – if we were to attempt to accumulate all of these necessities we would max out our credit cards and closet space.

But what must you really have this winter season? A fabulous coat.

Good tailoring, unique yet subtle details, and neutral colours are key to acquiring a coat you can utilize for several Autumn seasons to come.

I know it’s going to hurt your bank account at first, but invest in one great coat this year (that means NOTHING from a fast fashion retailer.) And come clearance time you can add more to your collection.

I made the mistake of falling for a Balenciaga Paris coat at Holt Renfrew Vancouver. But enough of my hardships, here are some women’s coats I personally love from Smythe!
