Some girls love shoes; I love coats.
The first fashion article I ever wrote was for my campus newspaper, and it was about picking the perfect winter coat.
If you live somewhere where it’s chilly, chances are the majority of people see you wearing only your coat. Because you never get a second chance to make a first impression, picking out a coat with a wow factor is pretty important.
I have a ton of coats and jackets–I usually wait until winter is almost over and pick up a few on clearance.
Here are some of the coats I’ve been drooling over lately:
Banana Republic’s buffalo plaid belted wool coat
Old Navy Color Block Coat — If you really like this coat, it’s on sale online, BUT it’s even cheaper in stores. I actually got it for under $30 while Christmas shopping. Also, the navy is a lot darker in person.
Vince Camuto leather trimmed coat
Calvin Klein knit coat
