50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSThe Christmas holiday is fast approaching and with it comes all the fun of decorating the tree, baking cookies, and singing Christmas carols. Did I forget to mention that Christmas also brings about some stress? We decorate and decorate and then decorate some more, we worry about finding the “Perfect” gift, and then there are the parties that we are invited to attend. What should I wear, will I be overdressed or under-dressed? Let me help you, at least with the dressing part.50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSLet me introduce you to Metrostyle. You may already be familiar with Metrostyle but if not, you need to check them out. They are a relatively new company, they only started in 2006, but they are bringing fabulous fashions at affordable prices to everyone. When Metrostyle contacted me, I checked out their about page and found that they were a sister company to Chadwick’s of Boston. That was all I needed to know and I immediately said yes. Then comes the wonderful problem of deciding what to style for you gurls.50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSHave any of you ever watched the television show Scandal? It is a political drama that stars a character named Olivia Pope. I don’t watch the show but I have seen lots of pictures of the Pope character and I have longed for a similar style coat that she wears in the show. As soon as I saw this beautiful Long  A-Line Wool Coat, I knew I had found what I was looking for.50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSThe A-Line shape is so flattering. You put this coat on and you will feel like a movie star yourself. I have other coats but I did not have a “dress” coat. I think we all need a coat that you can put on when we wear a dress or are going to a nice dinner or party. I have gone to many functions in a beautiful outfit only to have the whole “look” ruined by a coat that is for just keeping me warm. This coat will not only keep you warm, but it will keep you stylish too.50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSThe coat comes in two colors. The practical choice is the camel color but I wanted to go for the impractical choice. I went with the winter white color which makes a statement all by itself. There are just times when you want to go for style and this was one of those times.50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSThe coat is a wool/nylon blend with polyester lining. You will need to dry clean this coat.
50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSI am 5’6″ tall and I am wearing a regular misses. However, they do offer Tall, Petites, and Plus sizes.50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSThe coat comes with the pockets and the back vent tacked flat, so you will need to cut those open. I sized up on the coat just so that I could wear sweaters under the coat easily in the upcoming winter months. I also wanted to make sure that I could button the coat completely closed for those cold windy nights.50 IS NOT OLD | METROSTYLE FOR THE HOLIDAYSI also had a discount code for my readers.

    Loving your metro style Tania – that coat is adorable especially teamed up with black like you did!

    I recently discovered a brand which makes super comfy savvy business wear and posted about it today:

    Love the coat! So long and lean you look in it. Definitely make an entrance anywhere you wear it. Try to keep my focus on the one true gift of Christmas God’s son. Hard to do but when I get a little crazy I pull back and pray. Have a blessed day.

    I don’t think white is impractical—it’s so clean and stand outish!!
    I bought a white coat about 8 years ago and wore the death out of it!! This one is quite stunning on you Tania!!

    You’re right! Everyone needs a dress coat. I got rid of mine a few years ago and didn’t replace it and we had a wedding in early November that I probably should have worn one to! LOL
    This one is fabulous!!!!

    Very chic look! I especially love the layers and layers of pearls. They are the icing on the cake. I am a pearl girl and think they look great with everything…from blue jeans and a t-shirt to an elegant outfit like the one you have on! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    Beautiful and classic look, plus sometimes our dressy outfits are thin so this will keep you warm!
