Five for Fall: Coats You Need
Oct 5, 2022
I love a good coat. It’s my favorite thing about fall. Kyle gets upset because I prefer to eat outside in early October so I can wear my coat. After all, it completes the outfit. Here are five that caught my eye.
I own Banana Republic’s Essential Trench, and it’s the best. They made it in a water-resistant fabric for those of us in wetter climes. Also in tan. Petite sizes available, XXS to XL.
If you think you cannot pull off a leather jacket, this Andrew Marc leather jacket with fabric panels is for you. It comes in cement (shown), saddle brown and black. It’s also half-off right now. And the knit panels means it will always fit beautifully.
Growing up in Montana, my parents were messianic in their belief that coats should be warm. So a not-warm-enough for Montana dress coat is what I call a fashion coat. You won’t be cold, you won’t be warm, but you will look chic.
When the 90s came back, so did plaid. But I thought this Avec Les Filles coat was too good not to share. I’d wear the whole outfit right now, no questions asked.
Yes, I know this is technically six coats, but I don’t care. This Amazon Essentials puffer is the warmest coat I own. Full stop. Do you know how many coats I have owned, as a Montanan who will pay anything for warmth, that promised they were warm and didn’t deliver? I have coats that cost more than my first car that are not as warm as this coat. Seriously, buy this coat.
It comes in 11 colors. I own black, white and now olive. It runs up to 6X in size. No, for real, buy this coat.
