You don’t have to be a die-hard vegan to appreciate faux leather jackets: they’re also usually substantially cheaper than the real thing, and are often pretty tough to tell apart from it either. I like the built-in hoodie on this cool trucker jacket.
A commenter named Farah asked to see midi skirts, and a lot of you seemed to concur, so here you go. This is a category I rarely approach on GOACA because usually, I find most skirts to be unnecessarily tricky, but I actually found a bumper crop of ones to like this time around, starting with this well-priced navy satin number.
Boucle, for those who don’t know, is a fabric made with yarn that has a looped or curled ply, which gives it a kind of nubby texture that I think is chic as hell. I like it best on sweaters and outerwear, and think it looks especially great on this Isabel Marant Etoile jacket.
The inverted lapel and cocoon shape of this coat from Cos are quite stylish details.
A big old huggy scarf that comes in a few good colors, including this excellent pale pink.
I like the utilitarian feel of this jacket, and the faux-layered details at the neckline and sleeves.
My overcoats are always black, but this cute blue one makes me want to mix it up a little.
Another coat with a nice cocoon shape, and an unbeatable price.
The oversize look of this crewneck appeals; here’s something similar and less pricey.
Coats that tie at the waist can be tricky and bulky if you’re not super-skinny, but this one sidesteps this problem by only cinching part of the waist. I also just think it’s got a pretty winning silhouette.
I’ve shown you Iro’s Shavani jacket before: I think it’s a perfect blazer alternative if you think you look awful in blazers, and is just as polished. Here’s one in army green that’s marked down.
This big, roomy hoodie from Vince looks like the coziest thing maybe ever.
A snappy little jacket that sort of has the shape of a cape, but without the what-do-I-do-with-my-handbag conundrum that a cape presents.
A fantastic, long cardigan that you could layer both under and over.
A Woolrich coat in a fantastic, deep red, and with satisfyingly deep pockets.
I just think this coat is desperately chic: the interplay of colors is so good, and so is the texture.
This hoodie is in my shopping cart over at Net A Porter, and I just might go for it: I love the geometric print and ever-so-slightly cropped fit.
