The weather is cooling down here in Copenhagen and a couple days ago it felt downright cold. I threw my wool coat over my shoulders, stuck my hand in my pocket, and immediately realized that I had a little problem. My fingers went straight through the lining. Then I started to remember how cold I was last winter because, though I loved my coat, the wool count was not very high and that is not such a good thing when you live somewhere that is cold six months out of the year.
I can be a little obsessive about researching a purchase, especially one this big. I just want to make sure that I get the best quality for my money and that I don’t find something I like better the day after cutting off the tag! These are 30 coats, a little something for every budget, that caught my eye as I hunt down the perfect coat for fall this year!
First up, patterned coats are crazy popular this year and I LOVE them. I would love one of each and I would definitely style them with vegan leather leggings and a killer pair of black boots or a sexy black heel for going out. (A mom can dream!)
If you are worried about following the trends, play it safe with one of these gorgeous and grey neutral options.
I know a lot of people are afraid of white in the winter, but I have had my cream coat for five years with three kids and it has stayed very clean. Pair it with pale colors for a light and sophisticated feel.
I am on a major pink kick and this year’s pink coat craze is not helping. I am seriously thinking about buying a pink coat.
Would you do it?
one: Urban Outfitters $200, two: Valentino $895 three: Zara $145, four: Peter Petrov $1690 five: Max Mara $1,000
And last, but not least, get every bit of your penny’s worth with one of these black beauties. Not only are they timeless and classic, but they go with everything and you might just be surprised by how affordable several of them are!
But I actually think the Black Flared Zara Coat is quite a steal at $145 for a 70% wool coat. That one is definitely getting my top pick! I hope you see something that catches your eye so you can look fab and stay warm as the days get colder!
