My sister is moving to Maryland in November (her husband is in the Navy and will be stationed there for 3 years). Since she is only accustomed to living in very warm climates - Hawaii and southern California - she is having a hard time wrapping her head around the idea of harsh winters. She doesn't have any winter clothes and wants help finding an appropriate winter coat- one that's both warm AND stylish.
Here are my ideas- anyone else who lives in cold weather, do you have a perfect coat to share? Note that my sister is very petite so a long coat may overwhelm her frame even though that's what I'd prefer to wear to stay warm. I'm thinking a down coat is essential but maybe I'm out of touch? These coats are all from REI, which is where we shopped when I lived in Seattle. Not sure where Maryland dwellers shop.
