I never know the right time to buy a new coat for fall but we do know the wrong time. Every year without fail I wait until the temperature drops to buy a new jacket for the season and every year without fail the selection of coats left on store floors is subpar. That’s why this month I’m getting my hands on something warm yet stylish before I actually need it.
And what exactly will I be looking for in terms of trends? One coat on my wish list is this gorgeous oversized shawl collar sumptuous wrap coat that’s reversible from Diane Von Furstenberg. So even though the thermometer still reads 70° you can bet you’ll spot me shopping for a new coat this week because rumor has it I’ll need it sooner than I think!
For some great deals on fashionable yet classic styles, J.Crew is having an online, one-day-only sale today 30% off your order today and FREE SHIPPING! The sale includes my favorite waxed field jacket, this iconic trench, and this long field jacket (I’m obsessed with the green color!). I would also am crushing on this quilted Michael Kors jacket, which is similar in style to Barbour, but under $160, as well as this trench and this North Face jacket that provides both warmth and rain resistance. Bernardo is another favorite brand of mine. Check-out this warm textured coat, this Shearling Waterfall Jacket which I styled HERE on the blog, and this cute waterproof stripe jacket will be sure to rake in the compliments.
