The holidays are upon us, which means invites to get togethers and parties, giving you a ton of excuses to dress up. Picking out the perfect holiday outfit can be a tricky task. You have to factor in the winter weather, dipping temperatures and perhaps even snow.
Choosing a coat or jacket to pair with your festive dress without totally ruining your look can create quite the winter styling dilemma. Your puffer coat or ski jacket are best left at home while hailing taxis and party hopping. So, what’s the best outerwear option to choose to keep you warm, dry and chic? Here are some stylish outerwear options that won’t kill your festive vibe.
