Every season has its own personal battles. In the winter, it’s mastering the art of purchasing the perfect coat. The beauty of this coat challenge is that once you’ve found it, you won’t have to look again for a very long time. To me, the perfect winter coat should be classic, warm AND look good. Here is a round-up of my favourites this season – many of which are on sale!
Classic wool coats are always in style and can easily be transitioned from a day to night look. Be sure to read every label and look for quality. The higher the percentage of wool, the warmer the coat.
Down is warm enough that ducks and geese can swim in freezing water AND light enough that they can fly! I resisted buy a puffy down coat for a long time but with Ellie and Niko always wanting head out to play in the snow I needed something functional! I splurged on this one in hunter green and absolutely love it for cold, snowy days.
I love, love, LOVE fur! A real fur coat will keep you warm on the coldest of days. If you’re in the market for a real fur, website like eBay and Etsy always have great deals on vintage coats. In the meantime, these faux fur coats are a cozy and fun alternative.
