I love coats, but the only problem is that I can’t fit them in my very small closet. Whenever I go thrifting I love to check out the winter coats because they’re usually vintage and a reasonable price. But every woman needs a really nice coat, that she saved her money for, and that she wears during the winter season during her trips to the East coast (or in my case Tahoe) and looks like the ultimate winter fashionista. I’ve found my top ten coats I’ll be saving up, and scouring sales for, so that soon I will look like the stylish snow bunny I aspire to be. Enjoy!
I was drawn to this jacket because it has the cut and style of a raincoat (hood included) but is made with a wool blend. I also love the panel sleeves and welt pockets that I could store my gloves and beanie in. I imagine pairing this coat with a pair of tall leather boots.
North Face is a great brand. When I was in high school having a black fleece North Face was the “in” thing, and when I finally got one for my sixteenth birthday I was over the moon. But now, as a mature twenty-two year old woman, I need to find something that is both stylish, useful, and not black. I love this all-weather quilted jacket because it is light weight ,perfect for traveling, and zips up the front to a turtle neck. I also love this shade of blue because its dark and sleek, close enough to my favorite color coat–black.
When I would go shopping with my mom to help her purchase work suits, Tahari was always one of her go to designers, and that has stuck with me through the years. I love this coat because the cut allows you to wear it dressed up or down, but still keep you warm with its wool blend. I am a huge fan of oversized coats, but sometimes they look too baggy for someone petite like me. With this coat, though, I feel the style is just right and even someone who is 5’1 like myself could rock it.
Hunter and Olive green have been favorite colors of mine this fall and they are following me into winter. I love this quilted car coat because I could imagine layering it but also wear it over a t-shirt on a warmer day. I think it would look especially cute over a knit sweater or striped long sleeve tee.
I have yet to find the perfect pea-coat. As mentioned before, I am very petite and pea-coats typically look more stylish at or below the knee. But I fell in love with this Sherpa Crop Peacoat! It’s perfect because I have always been told to purchase cropped coats to appear taller, so it’s a win-win! I also love the double-breasted button closures.
Another cropped style on the list is this stylish suede moto jacket. This jacket comes in four colors: Burgundy, Coffee Bean, Purple Haze Purple, and Red Moon Red, I was immediately drawn to the Burgundy. I could see myself wearing a pair of black skinny jeans and matte lipstick to match the deep color of this coat. It is stylish and edgy!
Another beautiful color, this wrap coat in Merlot is perfect for a Sunday stroll during the winter. I love the drape shawl collar that can be worn in different styles, as well as the length of the coat. What I was drawn to the most was the rounded bottoms, I could imagine Audrey Hepburn wearing this in Breakfast at Tiffany’s–in black.
I’ve always loved masculine style crossing over into female style and this coat is a perfect example. The straight cut with the double breasted closure is stylish, but we need to talk about under the collar! The pop of beige in contrast with the grey under the collar is awesome and a great addiction to the jacket.
As mentioned before Olive is following me into winter. I love this bomber coat by Topshop! It has the style of a traditional bomber jacket with added length for winter. It also comes in Navy Blue, so if I could I would by one in each color. Bonus points: the hood is detachable! So cool.
This coat is awesome. It is modeled after old-school stadium blankets which means that it provides warmth of wool without the bulk. Also, it comes in petite, so the length is perfect for someone short like me!
