We will, by gosh by golly, wear coats at some point this year. I will. Even if I have to sweat through it.
So through gritted teeth and large amounts of determination, I bring you a list of coats that are all updates from the classic categories…
All of these can be found in one fabulous place – Dillard’s in West Town Mall.
Fur: I like to be different. And I can’t bring myself to do a fur vest, but I could easily be swayed to do a whole jacket. This is a great twist on the vest trend and would be fun to wear dressed up or down.
Anorak: I’m sure you’re all “Anorak this” and “Anorak that” once the temps dip below 50…haha or maybe not. I just looked it up and it’s defined as a waterproof jacket with a hood. Which I’ll take in this gorgeous neutral color.
Pea coat: It’s the details in coats like these that really help you stand out. The fact that this pea coat has a slight peplum to it and some fabulous zippered pockets makes it totally your and totally 2016.
Trench: I love the fact that this trench is decked out in gold buttons. That to me makes it feel fresh and updated.
Down coat: If you’re into being warm AND sleek – this coat is for you.It’s refreshing to see a warm and what could be puffer jacket done in such a simple, quiet way.
Parka: A giant army green parka is exactly what you’re going to want to crawl into every day in January. The hardware details and fur lined hood are just enough details to make you not look like a blob.
Wool coat: I AM DROOLING OVER THIS COAT. I love the collar, the color, and the details. It even looks great open – which is hard to find sometimes. I’ll give this one a happy home. THANK YOU.
Leather: This leather jacket is under $250 and is simple and streamlined enough to stand the test of time.
Puffer: The sleekest puffer I ever did see. And all the warmth is centered on your core which will really help.
Rain coat: A leopard rain coat is like a nicely patterned piece of luggage – it will stand out in the crowd of black and make you look ultra chic.
