Back to Black

This is the versatile coat that got me through a whirlwind tour of east Asia. As some of you may know, I went on a trip to Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong last November and this coat saw me through the brisk Tokyo evenings, the first snow in Seoul, the unexpected chill of Hong Kong and the return to the imminent winter in Canada. 

What I love about this coat is its many faces. You can dress it down with jeans and mitts or dress it up with a dress and silk scarves. And this modest piece of outerwear never needs to be the hero of the story. In this look, I've thrusted one of my favourite long, thick scarves onto centre stage and its rich details are the perfect compliment to the blank canvas of the coat.

Although I do need to trade this model in for a more down-y coat on those sub-zero days, I'm just gonna go ahead and add a black wool peacoat to the list of every woman's must-have winter essentials.
