Dry cleaners become our wool coat's best friends here in Toronto (always read the labels though!) Whenever possible, try spot cleaning as you go. Maintaining your coats as much as possible day-to-day will go a long way to keeping them looking great. Invest in a soft suede brush and gently brush your coat; this will remove any lint and surface soil. At the end of the winter months, I take them to be dry cleaned and then use garment bags to store them away in my closet.
This particular one is from Zara (exact one no longer available). There are some great sales on outerwear at the moment so now is good time to shop for a few pieces for next year. Some of my favourite stores that cater to petite sizes in outwear are Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Aritzia and Zara.
What do you guys think about wearing white in Winter?
