It is not an easy task to make a choice between the current trends and the pieces introduced during more than 500 runway presentations for the 2016 Winter season.
Getting dressed at this time of year can be tricky. Days start out cold and crisp end up warm and sunny, sometimes with bouts of rain that necessitate outerwear but it’s never cold enough here in California for a Winter coat. What to do? Find your own requirements that meet your needs. My best investment this year was a waterproof coat that is long enough for a good cover-up, with a hood to by pass the umbrella, warm enough as it has a detachable down lining. These were my requirements as I walk to and from work about a 20 minute walk each way. My coats I love them big, I love them warm enough but no too much. However, this winter I wanted a coat water resistant as well! We have been promised rainstorms here in California, indeed we got quiet a few and much more to come.
