Black Coat with a Twist

A basic black wool or cashmere coat is a winter wardrobe stable but I am really having loads of fun hunting down black coats with interesting details. I wrote about not-so-basic black coats here, so now it's time to share my new winter conquests.

Everyone in my group loved this unique coat. I saw it from across the sales floor and couldn't put it down afterward. It's more on the casual side but what character...

Savvy Mom got me the second coat as part of my Christmas package. It's a simple plain coat with faux fur lining. Only my mom can read my mind like this. I like the silhouette, which is fitted at the waist but flairs out a little to create an A-line. And, it's so warm which comes in quite handy this chilly winter. Both coats are by Emporio Armani. See, my mom knows me or what!
