Winter Coat_Dawn Levy_What Would V Wear

A good fitting winter coat is super essential, don’t you agree? I dread the winter each year, and I’m always looking for a stylish, warm yet comfy coat that will protect me from the nasty cold weather. This year I found one that is not only fashion-forward but actually keeps me warm, too! The coat I’m wearing is from Dawn Levy. I prefer classic winter coats in neutral colors hence I got mine in black, as it blends well with all of my outfit combinations.

Now I know buying for winter coats can be extremely tricky but don’t get frustrated. I’ve learned that knee to thigh length coats are versatile and look good on all body shapes. Seriously. Avoid letting the hem hit your calves as it automatically shortens your frame and make your legs look stubby (not in a good way). Other than that make sure that the coat will indeed keep you warm. I’ve had many coats that were “pretty” but didn’t do its job in keeping me warm.

As always, thanks much for reading & have a wonderful Wednesday!

Much love.

    I definitely agree with you in the philosophy of picking a good winter coat. I’ve had one before that was pretty but not warm and I suffered that winter. This coat looks both. Nice pick. Have a fab day beautiful.

    You are so ready for the Chicago winter in style! This coat is fabulous and it’s often hard to find puffer coats that look this great and this one is incredible! But of course the most incredible thing is how beautiful you look! All stunning, toasty and warm! Have a most wonderful Wednesday

    I simply LOVE this coat! I’ve never thought puffer coats were necessarily flattering but this one looks so chic and fashionable in addition to actually being warm! Hope you’re having a great week Vanessa!

    This is the prettiest puffer coat I’ve seen. I LOVE it! I’m like you and buy most of my coats in neutral colors. You look so sophisticated in this coat, Vanessa! I love the boots, too. This is a fabulous look!

    I absolutely love your coat! I haven’t seen a design quite like that one. I’ll have to take a closer look at it.

    Such a beautiful coat, Vanessa! I love the fur contrast on the upper portion of the coat, instantly adding that chic factor! I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far, my beautiful friend! Sending much love your way!

    Vanessa, this is probably the BEST winter jacket I’ve seen ever! You look so stunning!! I just checked out the brand and ordered a similar jacket just to yours! Thanks, as always, for being such a style maven!

    Hallo Vanessa! Ich habe bei Tine gelesen, dass du nächstes Jahr nach Deutschland kommst???? Ich würde mich freuen, wenn du auch nach München kommst ???? Du bist herzlich bei mir eingeladen ????
    Liebe Grüße aus München

    Omg! I am totally obsessed with this coat. It’s stylish and warm! I love the length and mix of fur, it looks so good on you! And by the way those boots are fab!

    So true. When ever I was picking out winter coat the most important was the fit and warmth, because I don’t like to freeze. Since I’m living in Ireland, winters are without snow and temperature very rarely drop more then -11C. So nice wool blend coat is just fine for me. I need to stock up more on cardigans and jumpers. Vanessa, I think you have found perfect winter coat. You look fab.

  21. December 2, 2015 / 7:50 PM

    This is the perfect look for winter Vanessa! It’s cozy, super chic, and it definitely looks like it will keep you warm!

    This jacket is amazing, and I think the sunglasses you paired with it look so chic!! Great post 🙂
