Compare & Contrast: Wearing a Winter White Coat

Compare & Contrast: Wearing a Winter White Coat

White coats are snowballing as the latest outerwear trend. They're bold, cozy, and the best foray into the season without actually having to freeze. That said, there's a right and wrong way to bundle up in them . . . the proof is in these examples of Kate Moss and Eva Longoria.

Kate Moss: Kate knows how to rock every piece of clothing she owns and a bold white coat is no exception.

Coat: Staying true to her street-chic style, she dons a fancy fur-trim coat yet makes it look casual and effortless.

Shoes: Though she's wearing a stark white coat, she knows better than to go matchy matchy with her footwear. Instead, her suede over-the-knee boots give her a rock 'n roll edge.

Accessories: Because her outerwear is loud, Kate kept the accessories to a bare minimum: a simple clutch and no jewels.

Eva Longoria: The actress opted for a long white coat to keep her fully covered.

Coat: Because she's petite, the long coat is overbearing. Still, the slight flare at the bottom and tie-waist belt lend a girly flair.

Shoes: Pairing UGGs with a classy coat took the look from potentially chic to tacky and immature. They make her legs look unnecessarily stumpy.

Accessories: Can you tell Eva loves to pile on the accessories? A white fedora, jumbo black patent bag, and a tassel — it's all too much. Less would have been way more.

I have a winter white trench style coat with gold embroidery (sounds crazier than it looks- the gold is understated) from Old Navy that I bought last year, but I have yet to wear it-- I'm thinking I'm gonna debut it at my compnay's Christmas party. come to think of it, I have several trenches I've never worn, but love the shape!! Hopefully it'll cool down this week and I can wear the other two.

Does that tassel have a practical use or is trying to pass herself off as a Christmas ornament? And while she does look ridiculous, at least she isn't wearing fur, which is tacky, tacky, tacky. Winter white is great despite these two fashion tragedies...if only I could wear white without spilling coffee all over myself.

Couldn't agree more, Fab! Since when did tassels become things people carried around as accessories?

I love the white! I am having a hard time finding clothes that are pure white instead of the creamy "winter white" though!

I have rarely seen Eva in an outfit that I like. She does not have good taste in clothing.

I'm so happy you posted this, Fab. I just bought a long-ish white coat at Nordstroms on Thursday and have been toying with whether or not I should return it. I will have to apply this here knowledge to my decision when I get home today.

i don't like fur at all but i still think akte needs to teach eva how to dress. it's rare that i see eva look nice and simple. she always seems to overdo things and look tacky

Heinous UGGs aside, I think Eva looks much better. I love her coat. Meanwhile, Kate's over-the-knee boots make her look like a hooker. I think both women should rethink their footwear choices!

Eva certaintly overdid it and her long coat and bulky boots make her look shorter.
