Warm, stylish coats for outdoor gatherings are just as important as last week’s blog topic: Warm Layers for Outdoor Gatherings. Choose from vests, puffers, fleece, teddy coats, and even faux fur. I’ll be keeping warm in Uniqlo HeatTech base layers and the coat collection that fills almost our entire front hall closet :).
Yes, we are putting vests in our warm, stylish coats for outdoor gatherings blog. A lot of people prefer a vest to a coat because of the range of movement it allows. This is especially useful if you are chasing kids around or tending to a fire. Some designers have begun to show cropped vests as a fashion statement for the youngsters. I still prefer a longer vest for the warmth and flattering silhouette.

Faux Fur Coats
Faux fur coats used to be looked upon as just that, faux fur. However, they are now their own fashionable coat category, just like teddy bear coats. My advice is to choose one in a color or pattern that will bring you joy each time you wear it, rather than shooting for something that will work with everything.
