It's officially winter and it seems like mother nature is not messing around this season. Frigid temperatures, face numbing winds and knee high snow storms are being seen around the world. I must admit, I was really hoping winter would start much later in 2011 or perhaps not at all. Ha! Wishful thinking.
If you're like me and you haven't yet purchased a suitable winter coat, or you just want a stylish update to last year's coat - no need to worry. We've searched and selected 11 winter coats that will provide comfort, warmth and show off your fashionable taste.
One of my favorite coats is by Moncler. The French company makes coats and jackets that balances a sense of fashionable style with functional necessity. Everyone wants to look good while keeping warm. The company originally starting out making winter gear for workers who had to endure the cold for long hours, and then moved into creating a wide assortment of winter gear for mountain climbers and those on expeditions. You can be sure that once you buy a Moncler coat, you will be warm in the harshest of weather for years to come.
Of Moncler's many coats that we could feature, I chose the Mer Jacket ($1300).Taking a simple black down jacket, the Mer is beautifully updated and feminized with quilted detailing and a belted waist with a shiny black buckle. The fully lined Mer Jacket features 4 exterior pockets, ribbed cuffs to prevent cold air from coming through and a removable fur trim on the hood.
