The White Coat: Yes or No?

We all wish for a white Christmas, snow outside – sounds all magical and surreal. However, today is the last day of Christmas, the 12th day of Christmas, and what I really would like to focus on , is a certain sartorial choice, that just goes hand in hand with a white Christmas. A WHITE Coat.

We’ve already established that pretty much everything is hot these days, it is all depends who and if you have a confidence to pull the look.

“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.”Lauren Hutton

But each season there is one item that stands out. A white coat is a real must-have for winter, because of its standout look. I know you could probably say,: “Really, In UK, white coat ?”, well there are many other countries with perfect winter weather, when streets have pretty, crispy layer of snow. I live in UK, and wear my white coat. Anyway, I am not going to argue, should you or should you not wearing this queen like topper when it’s dirty outside. I would!

Why pick a white coat? Because it looks luxurious and rich! Glamorous and refined! It makes me look and feel sophisticated. And there is a guaranteed chance you will stand out from the crowd, look like a busy business woman, who has a sophisticated style regardless of the season. Just imagine yourself in a white long coat with oversized black sunglasses, long black leather gloves and  pantsuit, LOVE it! Speaking of silhouettes and styles, then I should mention wrap designs, trenches, oversized, V-shaped, fur must-haves, medium, long, maxi, loose, slouchy, etc. In other words saying, as long as it is white, it will work! If you ask yourself how to wear white coat without looking and feeling yourself like a polar bear, then you should take a closer look at these pretty looks from various designer brands.

But before all that , I would like to share my look and the way I decided to style my chosen white coat.

Let me know what you think.

Me and my daughter.

I am not a tall person ( that’s to the right angle, on some pictures I do appear very tall :), so I have decided to go for just slightly above the knee length. That length is very flattering of any high and it gives you a chance to showcase your perfect footwear. I love little tan belt detailing ( gives you an option to wear it with tan accessories) and black buttons tie it to my black dress perfectly.

Some amazing coats by Karen Millen  are available here .

Karen Millen is a curated collection of perfectly cut trend-led and investment pieces offering an elevated, tailored approach to fashion. Each piece of their collection has been designed and perfected in their in-house atelier

The footwear I decided to go for, knee-high Chanel boots ( I have purchase them a while ago), very comfortable and material is suede, which I think makes a different to whole look. Makes it softer and more luxurious. Gloves are long ( elbow length), by Osprey. Underneath, I am wearing simple black and grey wool dress by BSBG MaxAzria.

My little girl adores fashion already, and I must say she does pretty good job dressing herself. She is wearing yellow coat by Tiffany ( adorable, I would like one myself), boots By Kurt Geiger and Dress by Kenzo.

Now, lets move to the options of White winter coats we have available online, presented to as by various retailers.
