One of the things I love most about a fabulous coat or jacket is that it can add a polished look to any outfit, even if all you have underneath is a basic tee and jeans to run out to the store for late night milk or bread, it always provides a pulled together appearance. If you're in the market for a new coat you'll want to take a peek at Nordstrom's Clearance Sale which ends today and it's the perfect time to get a new coat (as well as any other clothing, shoes and accessories) at up to 40% off and as always the shipping is free!
No matter whether you're dressing up for a day at the office or spending a casual weekend outdoors, in the cooler months a coat is the one necessary piece that will keep you warm and cozy and it's also the first thing that people typically see on you so it needs to be comfortable, flattering and must fit impeccably. When it comes to outerwear I've always treated my coats, trenches and jackets as investment pieces only buying those which I truly love and plan to wear for not only a season but for many years to come, Since they are worn regularly, they must hold up well over time. For that reason I always hunt for quality fabrics such as wool. leather, suede, etc., and make sure the fit is perfect. You can never go wrong with the classic lines of trench coats, pea coats, belted wool coats as well as military style jackets which are staples in the wardrobe of every classy woman.
These timeless coats caught my eye. You can click on the images below to take a peek in more detail. Many of these coats have lovely details on the back as well. Oh, and if you've been looking for something a little bit different (less structured) for the fall such as a cape as I have been, I thought this Ellen Tracy Cape was really pretty! :)
What is your favorite style of fall/winter coat that you can't live without?
