Chic & Cozy Coats | January Stylish Monday

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.

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 to Style a Leopard Coat
As you can see in the collage, I’ve styled it with a red tunic sweater, leggings, and boots, which is one of my favorite fashion formulas for winter dressing. I love the pop of red with the leopard print, the two are just made for each other, don’t you think? I’ve also styled it with a chambray tunic and different necklaces just to switch it up. Leopard is a neutral, and is just so versatile!

The current photo features the same coat, a black top, and black leggings and boots. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that column dressing is one of my tried and true tricks for dressing a pear shape. You can read more tip HERE and HERE.

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 to style a pink coat with jeans
A luuriously soft car coat like this one is just the ticket for throwing on over a casual jeans and tee shirt outfit. I’ve added my sparkly pink Kate Spade Keds and a pink crossbody to complete the outfit. The thigh-length of this coat easily glides over my hips and thighs. I love it!
Pink coat and jeans
Here I’ve styled the coat with a simple ivory turtleneck, bootcut jeans, and snake print booties. Bootcut jeans are great for us pear-shaped girls! Style tip: Bootcuts in a longer length, styled with a pointed toe shoe or bootie visually makes the legs look longer and leaner. Try it!

I just had to add this cute pic of our new rescue pup Walter. He hasn’t left my side since we brought him home. You can bet he’ll be starring in many pictures and blog posts to come! I mean…just look at those floppy ears! He’s such a sweetie!

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!

Stylish Monday Chic & Cozy Coats
  • 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.  

Stylish Monday Chic Coats
  • 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!

  1. Andy, I am loving both of these coats! Leopard is so versatile! I have 3 different plush leopard coats…two of them were thrift shop finds and I love them! Your pink car coat is stunning, too. The only pink coat I have is a big fuzzy teddy bear coat but it sure does keep me warm in my cold climate. You look fabulous in all of these styles, my friend! Fun January theme!


    1. Thanks Shelbee. I’ve been enjoying all of your snow pics! We had a few inches today, so I actually got to wear my coat! Yay!

  2. You are so dang adorable!! I have pants the redish/orange color you are stylin’ and I never thought of putting leopard with it!! I should have because, of course, leopard is a neutral. 🙂 Thanks for all your style inspiration!

  3. I love both your coats especially the pink one!
    A leopard coat would be fun to have and wear. I had one many, many years ago. Wish I would have hung onto it now!


    1. Hey girl! That leopard coat is a trusty standby for sure. Don’t wear it often, but I’m really glad I have it. Thanks for your comment!

    1. Thanks Gwen. This was a fun theme! I’m looking forward to next month already. So glad you joined the group!

  4. Hi Andy,

    I LOVE your pink coat! It looks amazing on you! Of course every girl needs a leopard print coat in their stash no matter where you live! Always enjoy our monthly collaborations and appreciate all you do for our group!
