Nothing beats an elegant, enveloping coat. It’s almost akin to a security blanket–a very chic one, you can walk out of the house in. Whenever I see a woman wearing one, whether she has the collar turned up, is in sneakers and sweats, heels and trousers, or boots and a dress, it immediately gives the impression she feels both cocooned and confident. (I suppose Victoria Beckham is making a point above; what else do you need besides a perfect coat?) Some day, but not this season, I will invest in a Max Mara camel hair version–the one shown here is such a gorgeous shade; it is a have forever. Do you have your security coat?
