    I just bought a Helmut Lang white 3/4 length hooded coat. I needed something warm and comfortable, and it was on sale (currently living on diminished budget thanks to Spitzer)... I'm white, but have the ability to tan. I have dirty blonde long hair... Is it ok for me to wear this coat?

    thanks

    Yes. It sounds like a cool piece. I think HL's winter whites are nice on anyone as long as your skin tone isn't really pasty (which sounds like it's not the case). If you feel good in it and can work to keep it clean, I think it's a refreshing, clean color. I don't have any white winter coats, but recently tried on a db Dior white wool pea coat that was amazing, but alot of $ and I was looking for more of an overcoat. Went w/ a 3/4 Dior brown (olive tones) wool overcoat. Have fun w/ it.
    Cheers,
    Pete

    Welcome back E.I., I've always enjoyed the air of arrogance in your posting. Anyway, it sounds like a nice coat. Is it wool or a synthetic blend? BTW, who is Spitzer?

    Hmm air of arrogance... how refreshingly british. Eliot Spitzer is the Attorney General of New York State, and, as a result of his often justified but tiresome penalizing of the banking industry, has decreased many people's incomes. The coat, strangely enough, is synthetic on the outside but has sheepskin on the inside... It shouldn't be warm and is extremely thin and breathable, but it is.

    iI have a similar piece in more of a garlic tone. Love it. I'm also fair complexion, blue eyes, and dirty blond hair. Have received many compliments on the coat. Compliments aside, I love the coat.
