Moderate Weather Outerwear for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s

Quote of the day: “If you are not criticized, you may not be doing much.” Donald H. Rumsfeld

I seem to have an abundance of moderate weather elaborate print coats. In evaluating this, my thought process is that one should always look smart and put together, and it’s extremely easy to throw on one of these coats to look that part!  The convenient element of a multi-colored or print coat is that there is no need for accessories to brighten it up or give it any additional flare.

See the previous blog Moderate Weather Outerwear (Styling Discussion 1).

50’s Moderate Weather Outerwear: The colors on this swirl coat are definitely the ones that look the best on me!  I actually bought it at a gift shop at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park (like mother, like daughter)!

70’s Moderate Weather Outerwear: My mother bought this jacket in Turkey and the best thing is it’s reversible to a neutral camel color on the other side.  I love the idea of reversible items especially when you are travelling.  I did add the fur scarf and black gloves for added warmth since this jacket is somewhat lightweight.

Check out these print coats:

    I have one long silver-grey faux fur coat. I think I might look a bit like an upright, though chic, bear in it.

      But bears are cuddly…. 🙂

    Your coat is fabulous. Charlotte looks so cute in the animal print with the black fur accents. I’m not a fan of bulky coats or coats without any shaping, so the blanket coat doesn’t appeal me, though the fabric is pretty.

      I have one or two bulky coats just because every once in a while—warmth is better than shape…ha ha!
