I absolutely love coats which is ironic because I absolutely hate cold weather. The one good thing about living in Dallas is being able to actually wear a coat. In my 15+ years in California, I probably wore a coat a total of hmmmm- five times. The temps have dropped to the low 40’s here in Dallas and I’m excited to pull out my new coats. Since I rarely wore them in LA, coats were never on my Fall ‘must have‘ list. My coat closet was full of old boring coats so this year I went on the hunt to freshen it up. Here’s my top picks:
BURGUNDY MOTO JACKET
Burgundy is making a big splash this Fall and I think it’s a nice change from our staple cropped black leather jackets. But, treat it like your black jacket and wear it with everything and every color. I found a great faux leather jacket on Amazon for only $45 for you ladies who prefer a vegan option. The jacket I bought is a wool and faux fur mixed texture by BCBG. I scored it for 70% off! (image below)
LEOPARD STATEMENT COAT
As you can see from the image at the top of the post, a leopard coat is always in style. It looks great with everything from casual denim to dressed up with an LBD. I picked up this one on Amazon Fashion. It’s under $100, super warm and cozy and a timeless shape I will be able to wear for years. A total investment piece!
PUFFER COAT OR VEST
The puffer coat gets hot every few years just like leopard, but it really never goes out of style. I love to wear a puffer vest over my workout clothes or on a power walk when it’s chilly out. This quilted style with faux fur hoodie is so cute, chic and comfy. I bought black, but it comes in several colors.The gold hardware gives it a more expensive look even though it’s under $30.
GRAY FAUX FUR
As you know, I am a faux fur fanatic and have several cropped jackets in white and black, but this year it’s all about the shades of gray. From pale dove gray to darker pewter, make sure to add this to your winter wardrobe. I picked up a marbled gray with all shades of gray and love it!
