Gang, we live in Michigan and that means we own an obscene number of coats, but you can feel bad about it or you can feel the bitter cold — which is it going to be?
You might as well make the endless days of gray skies and slush and snow look good on you. It’s going to take a lot of mental preparation, a slew of hot toddies and as many outerwear pieces as your budget allows and then some.
Lolë in Grand Rapids isn’t messing around. They want to do you a solid and offer two coats in one. The Kora reversible jacket ($139) turns inside out for two completely different looks. It’s light as a feather but highly effective against the harshest weather and the two-for-one deal stretches your style possibilities.
Another great option is the slim-fit Emmy Original ($410) that hugs your curves, hits just above the knee and is the perfect length for any body type. It morphs into your wardrobe for career or casual wear and the removable belt is great when you want to accentuate your waist or forget that area entirely.
CURRENT MOOD COVERAGE
Here are two more styles for popping in and out of stores, wearing in the car or going on a fancy night out.
GLAM coverage is here with the Dusty jacket from Piper & Jane. The color, cozy factor and quilted detailing give us the chills (the good kind), $198 at Lee & Birch in Grand Rapids, Rockford and Grand Haven.
GIRLY layering pieces like this flower- trimmed, striped, fleece bomber jacket is great when you want lighter outerwear. Wear it with trendy bibs, skinny jeans, dresses and athleisure pieces, $49.99 at Feather and Birch in Byron Center.
