Welcome Coat Season – the time of year when your outerwear is as important as what you wear underneath. Schedule time in your coat closet sometime soon with our handy coat checklist and see what you might need (want!) to add. Extra incentive: Coat sales start getting underway this month too. Enjoy!
#1 Break Out the Wool
Wool coats provide sophistication and style – not to mention warmth while looking your best! Buttons, collars, belts, hoods, and ruffles can all create interesting style elements. A neutral colored wool coat in black, grey, camel, or navy can be an excellent everyday addition in frosty temps. Be adventureous and add in a pop of color like rich red, crisp cobalt or royal purple. Plaids, houndstooth and check patterns with a modern spin keep your look classic and fun.
#2 Updated Puffers
Puffer coats are a wintertime staple to beat the chill and keep you feeling simultaneously sporty and chic. This season’s puffers are showing up in relaxed, cropped, and oversized silhouettes in a variety of finishes. Have fun with shiny fabrics, mellow mattes, and even faux leather puffers. Pair your boxy puffer coats with sporty coordinating accessories to finish your look.
#3 Fun Faux Furs
Play up rich textures with fun faux fur jackets and teddy coats in colorful fabrics and a variety of styles. Faux fur looks can add toasty warmth while elevating your look. Great for a girls night out on the town or everyday flair. Rock your signature style with these fuzzy, cozy coat options.
#4 Wraps, Shawls and Ponchos Please
When you’re not sure what to wear — a luxurious wrap, cozy shawl or perfect poncho might just be the trick! These versatile pieces can finish off a sweater and jeans, top off a dress with boots or be worn over a coat to layer up with style.
