Arctic Bliss-
By Ezinne Ukoha

The cold front is fast approaching and this is a good time to weigh your options and decide on your Fab coat of the season. The good news is that it is no longer necessary to spend a fortune on a nice warm bundle of joy!! The bad news is that there are so many to choose from! What’s a girl to do?


Check out the Ivory Funnel quilted number from Betsy Johnson ($161.10). You can order this stylish confection from Bluefly.com. It looks good enough to eat! And the quilted detail guarantees you will stay warm and toasty in that effortlessly fashionable way.




For something a little more fun and edgy, head over to Topshop and snag the Snake Print Padded Parka ($170). Topshop is known for their hip and modernly sexy appeal. The snake print detail brings a sense of wildness and boldness and the fur timed funnel neck will ensure that you will combat the cold in style.


Another stylish treat is the Knit Coat from Forever 21 ($34.50). It boasts a removable hood and the belt is flexible enough to play as seen with the bow detail. It’s the perfect go-to coat for those days when you are running around the city and need something with the right weight and style to keep up with you.


And if you are ready to spend the big bucks then look to Elie Tahari to make it happen. The Maple Wool Belted coat with fur trim detail ($472.50) is bound to make heads turn from all sides. It’s lovely and comfortable. And it could be that coat you are looking for when you need to make a splash at one of the fancy affairs piling up your calendar this holiday season. So go ahead and splurge! You’re worth it!!


These are just a few options that will hopefully ease your transition into the artic season.  Keep warm and Stylish!!
