Get Your Coat On
The weather is starting to change, we’ve switched over to black tights (yay!) and coats are not far behind.
There are a few things to keep in mind when buying a coat.
Use – what do you primarily use your coat for? If you are mostly running in and out of a car and not spending large amounts of time outdoors, I would suggest something more lightweight and shorter so you will feel comfortable sitting in your car. If you do spend a lot of time outdoors, opt for something warmer even though it is bulkier because you’ve got to be warm.
Shape – Coats come in all different shapes and lengths. For someone who is tall and slim, most styles will work well. If you are shorter, it is better to go with a coat that is a little more to the cropped side or a bomber style. It will also define the waist, which is something that a longer coat will not do.
Style – There are so many cool coat styles out there from puffy down, to trench, fur, to double breasted wool coats. I always like to start with the basics, everyone needs a puffer. Once you have that, there are always fun or dressier options.
Price – I think investing in a quality coat is worth it as it is something that you use a lot, and it can be used for a few seasons. With that being said, I will still post coats in cheaper price ranges as well.
I will post some of my favorite coats for this season which fall into all of these categories. Choose the one that works for your shape, lifestyle, and price range.
A great puffer in an excellent price point with faux shearling trim. A great choice for a high school girl.
This is a great coat for a very reasonable price (I think it looks more expensive than it is). The fur on the coat gives it a little bit more of a dressy vibe.
SAM. makes great coats, they are warm and good quality. I posted here a bomber style coat in a faux shearling with puffer sleeves. I like that this coat is not too bulky so if you don’t want to look too large, this is a good choice. And I also like the banded bomber style bottom.
This is another bomber style coat from SAM. This one has a hood which is a great addition. This coat also comes in a glossy black.
A faux fur Moose Knuckle coat. It’s cute, warm and chic.
This faux fur jacket from Alo Yoga is always a big hit, it looks nice and is also comfortable. It gives warmth without the bulk. This is similar to the previous coat for a much cheaper price.
A cute sherpa jacket in the $150 price range.
Dawn Levy makes excellent quality coats, and this one is a classic. The collar is real fur. It has zippers on the side that open to give room if you want to be comfortable in the car and can also work for maternity. This is still a puffer coat, but it is a step up in quality and look.
This is another great style from Dawn Levy. This coat is out of the ordinary. A mix of down, fur, and leather, it is practical and chic. It comes in black too.
This is a similar style coat in a faux fur at a cheaper price point.
A faux shearling jacket at an amazing price point, even worth it as a second coat.
A midi length wool trench style wrap coat. There is something so sharp about a cream coat in winter. This is a dressy style.
Another beautiful cream wool coat from Mango, at a great price point for a dressy coat.
Would you wear this? This is a super cool coat from Rudsak! The style is dressy while the fabric is more casual so it’s a great mix.
This is the same style coat at a much cheaper price point from Karen Millen.
A faux fur jacket with leather trim for an amazing price.
This is a beautiful cream double breasted coat. It is so classic and so sharp.
A fur mid length coat for a great price, it’s dressy and cozy!
This super chic leather trench with white fur trim, you will be sure to stand out!
