As the nights have grown cooler, it’s prompted me to rummage through my winter wear. I always forget how extensive my outerwear inventory is; however, upon closer inspection I’ve witnessed firsthand how quantity does not equal quality. I think this is donation time for my somewhat cropped Xhilaration puffy hooded coat along with my dumpy wannabe Burberry-style trench. I might as well pass along all things that are not intended for such long torso usage or anything that cannot be easily tailored to fit. So now I am on the prowl for something warm and cozy with a flattering, fitted cut. Both faux fur and shearling are huge trends for fall, but I can’t help but crush on the assortment of shearling coats that stormed the fall runways. Even my trusty Uggs received a notable makeover for the coming season with a fold over shearling lining. Shearling gloves are already on sale at J.Crew signaling an open season to get unpacking, but remember: less is always more!
