The Best Time To Shop For A Winter Coat

January 18, 2018

While it is still very winter in many areas, spring is right around the corner. Which means winter gear sales begin. And a good winter coat is a great piece to grab during those sales. Here are a few classic styles that have kept me warm for years as well as a few trendy picks that may very well be around awhile. *The majority of the picks I selected are currently on mega sale so if you see one you like definitely check it out.

duster, shawl collar coat, winter coats, distressed jeans, coffee t shirt, velvet booties, wool bag, baker boy hat, coats

THE DUSTERΒ 

This is a full length loosely fitted coat that is great to throw on especially when complete closure is not necessarily needed. I have practically lived in this one the last couple months. It’s like wearing a chic and cozy blanket around town.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

DUSTER COAT’S I’M LOVING:

THE PEACOAT

This classic style is probably one of my favorites. Not only does the shorter length compliment my petite frame, but they pair well with so many looks. A traditional peacoat will have double breasted details. However variations of the classic piece have merged into the mix such as single breasted, belted, and peplum.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

PEACOATS I’M LOVING:

puffer coat, light blue coat, winter coat, winter coat ideas, snow fun

*A little snapshot my daughter took from our recent “Houston Blizzard” fun. πŸ˜‰

THE PUFFER COAT

While it’s puffy and bulky form is not necessarily my favorite in the flattery department, it is however my casual go-to for extra warmth. I have had mine since college, but I’m really considering an upgrade. I am loving the longer lengths out right now as well as the belted options I’m seeing.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

PUFFER COATS I’M LOVING:

THE TRENCH COAT

Traditionally known for it’s lightweight, water-resistant, and structured uniform like stature originating from the military has certainly stood it’s ground over the years. This wardrobe staple exudes a polished presence like no other. Due to it’s lightweight, this style doesn’t necessarily withstand significant cold temperatures. However they are great transitional options for spring and fall. Whether your preference leans towards the original classic design or the evolving variations such as this denim version I don’t see this one going anywhere soon.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

TRENCH COATS I’M LOVING:

THE WOOL BLEND COAT

I’m not sure it gets anymore classic than the wool coat. Wool has been keeping the human race warm for centuries. While it’s traditional longer length pairs quite nicely with dressy attire it very well fits right in with our denim and t-shirts. I have had mine for years as well as a shorter blazer like version and don’t foresee them retiring anytime soon. This style is definitely a great investment piece that will last forever!

WHAT I’M WEARING:

WOOL COATS I’M LOVING:

faux fur, black coat, winter coat, vintage, vintage coat

THE FAUX FUR COAT

Does it get anymore luxurious and cozy than this one? Again fur has been around since, well since fury animals have been around. :\ Thankfully for the sake of animal perseverance and my allergies we now have faux options. As shared HERE I found my fabulous full length version at a local thrift store for $10! However I did find one very similar and affordable piece and listed it below.

Another coat that has hit the scene big time this season is the Teddy Bear Coat. They are the softest and most coziest little coats ever and I have my eye on a few really cute ones.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

FAUX FUR AND TEDDY BEAR COATS I’M LOVING:

Which style was your favorite? What is your go-to coat?
