The Big Chill

I love a good coat. In the fall and winter its hard to find a way to make being bundled up look chic. I feel a lot of outerwear lacks a tailored look, something that function at keeping you warm without losing your shape underneath all the layers. With all the styles available I believe there is a way to look polished with your coats whether you are dressed up or going casual. Below are some of my favorites and he best part - every style is under $200!!! What is your go to outwear style???

Who says a military style coat has to be structured or stuffy. I adore this swingy lightweight style for casual days walking around town with skinny jeans and some comfy flats.

Tie waist coats are the flipping best to help accentuate your waist and flaunt your curves. I especially love this version for it's detailed collar and cuffs.

Anything with toggles screams New England to me. I have been a long time coveting the famous Burberry Toggle Coat but this one gives the look without having to eat ramen noodles for a month.

A necessity in every women's wardrobe. I particularly love this style for dressed up looks as well as casual. While it may not protect you from all the elements, it's a super versatile piece that can add a lot to your wardrobe.

Trench

There is something about this style that I am completely smitten with. The vintage inspired style boasts a fur hood and faux leather details giving it a very "mad men" look that I am loving. Again with looser fit styles I would pair with skinny jeans and some riding boots. I also think this would look incredible over a dress or pencil skirt for a more dressed up pairing.

Not every hooded coat should just be utilized for the weather. I love a giant hood as a style feature and while this wool material wont do much for you on a rainy day, it is one hell of a stylish jacket for a chilly day.

Hooded Coat

Puffy jackets typically make me feel like I am wrapped in a down comforter. I love them for their ability to keep you dry and warm. However they are often the worst thing a women can do to her figure, most styles add on an extra 20lbs and I am pretty sure I don't know a single women who wants that look. I chose the style below for it's quilted puffer style and tailored lines that will hug your body instead of being a box above it. It still boasts the hood as well the waterproof material to keep us dry on those wintry mix weather days.

  1. This post just got me sooooo in the mood for crisp fall weather! I hate when summer ends, more than any other season...but I guess if anything is going to ease us into the frigid winter months, getting to purchase new cozy coats is the way to go! I love the toggle, trench and cape coats you featured…and the puffer (h*ll, I like them all). Time to go shopping!!

    1. The toggle is a favorite for me too, I have loved the Burberry as long as I can remember but can't pull the trigger on the cost. I thought that price point was a good alternative :)
