Back to Basics: The Tan Coat

Shop My Outfit:

Happy Monday! I’m excited to continue with my back to basics series and share about tan coats this time. Now that it’s mostly coat weather in Birmingham, I’m finding myself reaching for my tan coat first. When I saw this gorgeous Chicwish tan coat, I knew it was a great staple piece for my winter wardrobe.  Don’t get me wrong, I love black coats, but tan coats literally go with everything, and I also love that they don’t show lint as badly a a black coat.

This tan coat is especially so chic and fits great.  The belt because it makes it more tailored and a little dressier. This coat runs a little big and is great quality. If you plan to layer with heavy sweaters and multiple layers you might size up, but with how mild the weather is in Texas and Alabama, I don’t plan to layer much. This coat is a great weight to keep you warm. Another thing I love about tan coats is that they’re very versatile. This coat is great for everyday at the office, with jeans, or could go to an event where you’re dressed up as well. I love tan and red together around Christmas. I styled the coat with my favorite red sweater, my Spanx faux leather leggings, my Burberry scarf and my black pearl handbag.

What is your favorite winter staple?
