Fashion tip of the day: Growing up in Michigan, the long winters are a good excuse to invest in fabulous winter coats. Often times people see your coat and never see your outfit. Treat yourself to a great statement coat that will stand the test of time. A great tweed will never fail you. Find something that is tailored and can be dressed up or down. A knee length coat is both flattering and great for blocking the cold winter wind, without being dowdy.
