Here is one item I think it’s always a good idea to invest in, because it is so easy to feel shlumpy in drab winter outerwear, and a nice, snappy coat makes you instead positively exude chic. I have more coats than I know what to do with, but was sorely tempted by a lot of these, starting with this one, which has such excellent lapels.
From APC: a nice herringbone tweed that’d look great with jeans or more dressed up.
This is Rachel Comey and not cheap, but I really wanted to include a couple of colorful options and they were in short supply. Also, it’s got a really appealingly nubby texture.
Nothing cozier than a hooded faux fur coat.
The stripe at the hem here adds just the right amount of interest.
A classic shape, and a perfect tomato red.
A little on the crazy side, but good crazy, I think.
This is alpaca, which always looks so great, and I love the idea of a creamy white coat.
The oversized lapels here are so damn chic.
I had to include a leopard choice, of course.
I just think this duffle coat is the most stylish thing ever.
I like the subtle military look here.
Such a perfect, blazing autumnal color, and I really like the texture.
The ribbed, knit cuff is what makes this faux fur standout.
Just a really good houndstooth.
Why not something sweet and peachy pink?
Just as elegant as the day is long.
