During the cold winter months, especially here in Chicago, it’s a must to stay warm! For many people, finding ways to look stylish while bundled up can be tricky. But the good news is, it doesn’t have to be! Putting a stylish winter outfit together is all about a great coat. Ok, I’ll be honest a great handbag and pair of shoes don’t hurt but you get the point here! A great coat is a must have wardrobe staple for the winter time.
My clients always ask me where to get a great coat, and yes you can go online and possibly shop a sale but I always find the most unique coats at local retailers. Now let me say, I’ve always loved the opportunity to shop local Chicago stores and designers. Supporting local small businesses feels extra special, and I always find pieces that you don’t see at other ‘big box’ stores.
Winter Style Favorites
Recently, I came across this super chic boutique Scout & Molly’s and instantly fell in love with this Sisson Coat. I mean honestly, how amazing is this?! I just had to have it for myself. Scout & Molly’s recently opened a location in Deerfield Square, but you can also shop online super easily. Their entire collection is filled with the most insane pieces. Scout & Molly’s has great winter staple pieces like these moto leggings I truly can’t get enough of. You know I’m all about a great graphic tee, and I adore this Guns n’ Roses distressed tee they have in their current collection. I’ve been on the hunt for stylish sweaters this season, especially now that Chicago is really feeling cold, and have my eye on this beauty!
How To Wear a Coat This Winter
I couldn’t leave without adding the Sisson Coat to my wardrobe, and was so excited to start wearing it. This coat literally feels like a blanket, it’s so cozy! But not only is it comfortable, it’s super chic and stylish as well – double win in my book. It’s only $132, too! But, if you shop Scout & Molly’s and mention my name you will receive 10% off your purchase. If you need a new coat for the season, this is a must have!
Here I styled the coat in just minutes. I paired a cropped sweater and jeans from Aritzia and easy accessories. As a busy mom-on-the-go, this look is going to be a go-to for me all season long. Those extra busy days on-the-go, you can switch the heel with white kicks for comfortable yet chic look. The thing I love about statement coats like this is you don’t need a lot of other pieces worn with it to look stylish.
