Luckily we don’t need this type of coat yet here in DC but in preparation… I love the style of the J. Crew Cocoon Coat but not so much the price. Do you have any recommendations on similar coats (long/ wool/ and petite if possible) that are below $200?
Thanks & LOVE the blog! Sarah
Ah, the cocoon coat. I almost bought the very J.Crew coat you speak of while I was in D.C. a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, it’s probably not warm enough for a Montana winter. Wish it had the Thinsulate liner.
Affordable cocoon coats are available, though nothing exactly like the J.Crew version. Here is the best of what I found:
This Mango coat is my favorite. It has a bit of a Jil Sander look that I love. Mango has a few more options including this pale pink, collarless coat and this textured white coat. This shearling coat is a cozy-looking option for casual days.
And in the over-$200-but-worth-ever-damn-penny category this luminous Ted Baker coat with a metallic-jacquard trim. It’s a must see. The rose gold zipper? Sublime.
