Coat Shopping Season!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I don’t think there’s anything I like window shopping for more than coats. As always, I love wool coat with an a-symetrical closure. This year I love the trend of wrap coats with belts or a hidden closure and oversized blazers with popped collar. Here are a few that I’m fawning over this year.

This Michael Kors number is a steal at $178. It’s a great late fall/ early winter coat for the work week. It’s probably not practical for the dead of winter since it’s kind of open. I don’t have a camel coat, and this one is very tempting. I also love this similar option from Banana.

Another great neutral. This one from Kenneth Cole has a cool a-symettrical hidden closure. Also very reasonable at $228. I like that it has more of a blush undertone, and the boucle texture adds some interest.

Here’s a slightly pricier option from DVF. The wrap coat is so hot right now. A wrap coat just seems cozy to me. It’s professional enough for work, but it’s also a great weekend option when you’re trying to look casual but put together. Michael Kors has a similar, more affordable option as well.

I looooove this coat. At $495 from Trina Turk, I’m waiting for it to go on sale, but it has pretty much everything I look for in a coat. And I need a grey coat!

I love this basic black moto from Banana. I have a similar one from Gap that’s a few years old. I think it might be time for a refresh/upgrade. This style is perfect for early fall and the spring before it gets too chilly.

And finally, the perfect jacket from Athleta for the to and from the gym trips in the fall. This is perfect for running quick weekend errands in the early-mid fall. Grey, a-symmetrical zipper, and basically sweatshirt material? I’m in.

Has anything caught your eye this year?

Coat Shopping

I love a great coat, and here’s why:

1. During the colder months you probably rely on a couple coats to wear everyday. They better be sturdy and classic, but fabulous.

2. Your coat is often the first and last thing your co-workers, friends, and family see you wearing during cold winter days. You want to leave the right impression.

I’m always in the market for a great wool coat that is stylish, classic, work appropriate, and well made. I love a zipper as opposed to buttons, and an asymmetric zipper at that. I say no to hoods, and I tend to go with fitted as opposed to swing or cocoon. I have a red coat that I love, and a black coat that does the job, so I’m always looking to diversify.

Here are a couple coats I’ve been stalking at Nordstrom waiting for a sale. What do you think?

This one by Marc New York meets all of my requirements and it doesn’t even break the bank at full price at $198. It’s probably number one on my list:



I also love this one by Michael Kors. I’ve decided that grey or blue are my best options to diversify my coat color options. This is a little pricier than above at $27o.


And then over at Bloomies and a little north of my price range:

This DKNY coat is a little pricey for me at $360, but it does fit all of my criteria, and it pretty fabulous.


And can we talk about This DL2 camel coat at $599. I’m not as familiar with Dawn Levy, but I like her already. I cannot get enough of camel in the fall and winter.


Here’s hoping for a Veterans day coat sale!
