Chic & Cozy Coats is this month’s Stylish Monday theme, and the ladies have outdone themselves this time y’all. Our weather here is milder than most of my Stylish Monday sisters, so I don’t often wear a big, bulky coat, but it sure is nice to have one or two in the closet when it does feel like actual winter around here! I was really interested to see how the ladies styled theirs since several of them live in much colder climates. Read on for all the fabulous details, and information on how you can join the fun and link up with us.

MY CHIC & COZY COATS
How I Style A Leopard Print Coat
This leopard print coat from Chico’s has been in my closet for several years now, and it definitely fits the theme of chic & cozy! I’ve styled it in several different ways. Check out my Holiday Capsule Wardrobe for all the deets on how I dressed it up and down for the holidays. On a side note, wow my hair was short!

How I Style A Pink Coat
I just snatched this gorgeous pink Calvin Klein coat from the Dillards after Christmas sale, and it was an absolute steal, at an extra 40% off! They run the best sales from time to time, and I almost always take advantage. This gorgeous coat is in my favorite shade of pink and is a cashmere blend. As usual, the arms need a bit of tailoring to fit me properly, but that’s an easy fix! Here’s a couple of ways I styled this beauty.

HOW MY STYLISH MONDAY SISTERS STYLED THEIR CHIC & COZY COATS
I think the girls really enjoyed this month’s theme because they look fabulous. Just because a coat is utilitarian, doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish as well! Please be sure to support these fabulous bloggers and Instagrammers by clicking through on their links, where you’re sure to get all the details on their beautiful coats. Let me know in the comments – which chic & cozy coat look is your favorite? I can’t choose just one!
- Nancy – Nancy’s Fashion Style -I always have a lot of trouble finding the perfect winter coat! This one wasn’t! On the blog post from last Friday I am wearing the perfect one. This one has a fabulous color but that’s all it has. No pockets, no lining, no collar. It was given to me and I really loved the color, but passed it on!
- Emma – The Style Splash – “It has turned really cold and frosty here in the UK so I need a warm coat. This vintage cream one is perfect as it’s long and has a hood to keep the snow off my hair…yes, we’ve had snow! I found it in a charity shop for less than £10…such a fantastic bargain!”
- Nicole – High Latitude Style – In Interior Alaska, winter lasts about seven months. Temperatures can be anywhere between 40 below (or less) zero to slightly above the freezing point. While around the freezing point a loden coat works fine, a heavy down coat is a Must at 40 below. These coats make everyone look like the Michelin Men. Shearling or goat coats work fine down to -30C (~-22F).
- Ada – Elegance and Mommyhood – I think coats are a closet staple if you live in the Midwest. We have had our share of cold weather and snow as you will see from this post today, but overall it is mild (that means in the 30s & 40s for us). Speaking of closet staples, if you don’t own a Winter White or Cream one yet, you should. I think a classic wool coat in cream will be timeless and it can last you for several years to come. I love mine (it’s from Loft from last year and both Loft and Old Navy have almost identical ones this year). Stop by the blog today to see sweet Vivian also, in a pretty blush pink coat.
- Gwen – Gwen Lives Well – Needless to say, living in Florida, I don’t get much of a chance to adorn my winter gear. Sure, we get a few days in the 50s, but generally, a leather jacket or wool poncho is all you need. So while I donated most of my ‘heavy winter coats from my New York life’ collection ages ago, I still have a few favorites, which I share on the blog. The coat pictured here was purchased just a few years ago, as an in-between coat – not for weather that’s too cold, but cold enough for more than a wool poncho! Perfect for New York in November, pre-pandemic, 2019.
- Amy – Amy’s Creative Pursuits – As a Wisconsin Gal, we have severe winters and live in parkas all season long. I have parkas of all styles, lengths, and colors filling my closet, but for this challenge I wanted more of a statement coat so I chose a very old pea coat that rarely gets worn. It’s a fun, unique coat, but not that practical for my climate.
- Julie – Fashion Trends and Friends – Winter coats, jackets, gloves, mittens, hats and scarves are all a must have living in Illinois! Of course, a girl can never have too many of varying colors, lengths and styles! I might just have two closets full! This long length plaid (I’m always mad for plaid!) coat was a must have from Old Navy this year! It’s the first plaid coat in my collection! I think it pairs great with my star sweater and these navy fur trimmed boots. Every winter I think I might add a coat or two to my collection! After all, it is the thing everyone sees first in the winter!
- Shelbee – Shelbee on the Edge – I have a bit of an obsession with coats especially since I live in a snow belt where winters are long and frigid. And I am usually drawn to dramatic statement coats which I love to search for in thrift shops. That is where I found this Jordache white faux fur coat a few years ago and it cost less than $10. I don’t wear it often but when I do, I feel like a fancy polar bear!
- Nina – Sharing a Journey – I love styling coats and jackets in the winter; layering accessories, playing with shapes and colors. In today’s post, I am sharing a few thoughts on elevating your coat styling game.
- Michele – On Instagram as Seechele_styles This fur leopard coat is reversible to a rain coat… it’s over 15 years old and will never go out of style!
- Suzanne – Ask Suzanne Bell – As someone who wears a lot of black and denim, a fun coat is an instant game-changer. From animal print to bright red – I like my coats to be fun. Throw some faux fur into the mix, even better. And yes, I have been known to wear a coat over my pajamas!
