Puffy Coats, Quilted Coats &
Colorful Outwear Accessories
When winter first starts, it’s beautiful and even fun! Fresh white sparkly snow that glistens when the sun shines is very beautiful and serene! Living in Illinois plus always being cold causes me to have quit the coat and winter accessories collection. I view my outer wear and outer accessories an extension of my outfit. It’s the final finishing touch that pulls the whole look together, to the point where I sometimes dislike taking mine off when I finally get inside. This year’s trends included the puffer, which has been going strong for a few winter seasons now but of course there’s usually a slightly different spin each year; and quilted coats. Warm and stylish are my top priorities when it comes to winter coats!
Yes, puffers are in every single season, but this year it’s all about the ones that feel so good, you start to doze. Think duvet-inspired styles that might as well be the outerwear equivalent to wearing a cloud.
BCBGeneration revamps the classic puffer coat with this chic version designed entirely in sleek faux leather and finished with thumbhole cuffs. The thumbhole cuffs is an added benefit that I was surprised to find out that I really like! They actually keep my hands relatively warm although I also add mittens or gloves on really cold days! The wing collar adds extra interest. Winter coats can be cute, trendy and keep you warm! Additionally, I’m able to wear it with casual looks and dressier looks! This coat is a total WINNER in my winter coat collection! I size up one in order to be able to wear lots of layers underneath!

One of my most favorite colors to wear is blue – all shades of blue! This arctic blue puffer coat caught my eye and I knew I’d wear it with so many outfits! The soft colors in this fair aisle sweater and the light wash jeans are such a good match with the coat. Believe it or not it’s super lightweight and feels like I barely have a coat on. The bungie straps at the waist allows you to adjust the fit. It also comes in red, rust and moss sizes xxs – xxl. I sized up in this coat as well so that I can wear sweaters and thick layers underneath without it feeling too tight.

Doesn’t every girl need a silver quilted coat in her winter wardrobe lineup? I was traveling to Orlando, FL in January for a conference. Leaving Illinois was going to be especially cold at that time of year and Orlando was actually having a bit of a cold spell. Additionally, I know that most conference centers are kept cold no matter the time of year not to mention I’m just always cold…so you get the picture, I needed to be warm! However, I didn’t want to travel on the plane or haul around a big, thick puffer coat. My solution is the super thin but super warm quilted silver coat. Silver is basically a neutral so I picked outfits that would match and of course had to bring my silver booties! Both the coat and the booties got lots of attention and compliments during the conference and any time I wear them! Remember, you can be cute and warm if it’s important to you! This coat I purchased in my regular size and am still able to wear layers underneath.
I wanted you to be able to see the front and back as it’s got a bit of high low styling and fully covers your behind! I love the stand up collar. While it looks kind of puffy, it’s actually very thin but very warm!

Winter in Illinois gets to be rather long and dreary after a few months! One way to cheer yourself up and keep it bright is adding a pops of color through your winter outer wear. Big, bold, brightly colored scarfs are one way to add some fun into your winter look. It’s easy to start with a solid backdrop and layer on your scarf. I like to keep my scarf on as part of the entire look! Bright colors can be an instant mood lifter! They’re easy to find in all lengths, colors and materials!
