Many ladies have their "thing" in fashion. A shoe person, bag lady, etc. Well, I love coats. I buy them as investment pieces, and if you live in a cold urban place, it's what the majority of people see you in on a daily basis. I have not updated my coats since being in South Florida for three winters (although my cover up collection is thriving), but I still look.
Here are a few of my favorites. I am holding back on pressing the "add to cart."
Tan is my favorite color, open my closet before I moved to Miami and it would be a vision of neutrals. I've jazzed it up considerably since moving to the tropics. Also the hood is great for blocking wind, a Chicago/New York must.
Mackage is my ultimate dream coat category. They are smart, functional, classic with personality (like the placement of the zipper here). They also do not make you look like the Michelin man, a bonus in this department.
Super cute and affordable, ala Zara.
This J. Crew Stadium Cloth Cocoon Coat came out the year I moved South, I still love it. The color is a lovely non-traditional neutral option.
Burberry Brit is an investment for sure, but they are warm, look super chic and hold up. The cinching belt also helps with the aforementioned dilemma.
This Club Monaco number is SO great, do you notice the pockets are black calf hair AND it has a hood. What a classic piece to have with a little sass.
