Italian Fashion Question 3 - Whether the Weather Is Cold

Once again, to all of you who answered my past Italian Fashion Questions or just left a comment - Thank You!! :) 

I hate being cold. My allergies mess up, my eczema flares up, it makes my skin flakey, and I have to always put on and take off clothes as I walk in and out of buildings. But I guess I gotta suck it up if I'm going to Italy. I read that the average temp in Feb and March is below 65 degrees. Homie don't play that. 

Question 3: What is the weather like in Italy? In particular, what is it like in Winter in Rome? How cold does it get? What do you wear to stay warm?

I guess that means I have to actually invest in a coat. I don't have one! Can you believe it? Well...I do, but it's a furry yet beautiful monstrosity of a coat that does the job, but looks silly. I love it, but I'm going to need another one. I am obsessed with Cape Coats. I have been for a loooong time (see me gush about them here and here) They are pretty prevalent in expensive high fashion brands like Louis Vuitton and Rag and Bone, but the trend did not really catch on for the more affordable labels. So unfortunately every Cape Coat I have seen and fallen in love with is SUPER EXPENSIVE. *sigh* Story of my life. 

You've heard of the term Drama Queen? Well this style- It's a Drama-Coat. I love it!
My favorites are below.

Even if you don't live in Italy, please let me know what you do to stay warm in cold weather and not look like a furry monster. I'd really appreciate the tips from yall.

    anyway Rome doesn't get very very cold...sun shines a lot down there and if it does get cold (max below 10 degrees) it's only for a few days...
    I spent a new year's eve there a few years ago and it was snowing but that was pretty atypical...

  5. yes here in Italy right now is going cold! :(
