Until a few years ago, I never would have considered a long distance relationship a realistic option for myself. I once dated a guy who lived on the other side of the city and that relationship was challenging enough, though to be fair, our problems probably had more to do with him being a douche bag than the 30-minute drive between our apartments, but still.

I know it’s kind of sad, but that chic outfit you have covered up will play second fiddle to your outerwear. So why not let your coat be a fashion statement all on its own?
