Beautiful winter coats with colors and patterns!

by Sylvia

Winter pattern coat from desigual

I visited my friend Anja in Haarlem, The Netherlands, and was delighted to find some amazing Desigual coats in her closet. Of course I could  not wait to try them on and feel absolutely amazing in them. This patch work coat is absolutely gorgeous and I would love to wear this coat more often. Below is Anja wearing the coat as well with a lovely hat!

I also loved this other coat from Desigual. This beautiful patterned black and white coat fits perfectly with my black, white and red capsule and was a pleasure to wear as well. Below anja mixes it with a bright pink hat!

I did not have my collection of hats with me so I wear it with a simple black beret. The coat is also a bit wide for me but looks perfect with a black belt. I even added an animal print scarf for a bit of pattern mixing!

I have seen many wonderful clothes in the shops in Holland, like a similar coat in a thrift store to the one above. Unfortunately, I have to pass it all by as I only get to wear these clothes once a year for a short while. Still I can marvel at how good I look in these coats as they have been immortalized in images now forever. And all you lucky people in cold places will get to wear beautiful coats like this all season!

Have you managed to find coats that you absolutely love this season?

Thanks Lisa. I’m very much enjoying my trip. Right now it’s snowing and after spending 1 day yesterday on the skies through wind and snow, I’m taking a little break and catching up with comments on the website. It’s a magical white world though and my son is absolutely loving it!

I am so in love with these coats I can not stand it! Especially the patchwork one. I have bought 5 new coats in the last 12 months but it never occurred to me to buy a print coat – not that I have ever seen anything like these in the Midwest. Wow! Pretty Anja looks fab in her coats and hats but that first one is perfect on you Sylvia. And how cute are you in a beret? You look so French! I like your tall black boots too. As much as I am not enjoying the weather today (snow and temps in the single digits) I am suddenly grateful that I can wear coats and hats and boots and gloves for 5 or 6 months each year. Now if I could just find a patchwork coat of my own. 🙂 Anja, you have an amazing wardrobe! Thank you for sharing it with us.

Thanks Suzanne. I’m absolutely loving the berets right now. I managed to snap up a few at a thrift store in Haarlem and am wearing a red, quilted and also an animal print one. Will try to post a few pictures in coming weeks. Don’t they sell Desigual where you are? It is is a great brand that offers lots of pattern coats, tops, dresses and skirts. Most of what they sell is as the the name suggests not equal or asymmetrical. Although I like wearing the coats I’m still happy to go back to the warmth soon. Dressing up and staying warm in the cold winter is quite a challenge and something I’m not used to anymore…

The coats are amazing and look great on you and your friend. I am a coat lover and have many! Just another layer to provide self expression.

I have not bought a coat in 4 years! It’s a pity as I see so many great ones, but in the end I do prefer the heat to the cold….
