We’ve been fairly lucky with weather over here. As upstate NY was getting the snow smackdown, we enjoyed a slightly chilly, but still enjoyable day. Until the hail.
The hail was flying around yesterday for the greater part of the day, and the wind was gusting. It sounded like someone was throwing rocks at our house constantly. Jeff’s game ended up being cancelled. While I was sad my entertainment for the night was gone, I was very happy I did not have to brave the icy winds and dodge the freezing rocks whizzing at my face.
I guess this means winter is here and I can resume my cold weather diet of peanut butter, soup, and hot chocolate.
Despite the warnings of impending bad weather, Jeff and I went down to Copenhagen two days ago to walk around and get out of this little suburb. We found ourselves looking at coats, hats, and various other warm weather things. Why? I don’t know. Jeff and I are absolute outerwear hoarders. We both have an obscene amount of jackets and coats, but we always want more. I think winter coats are my favorite part about the cold weather. I brought a total of 6 jackets here. No wonder my bags were overweight. Oh, and Jeff got a coat downtown.
In the interest of saving closet space and money, I’ve window shopped and put together a list of some great winter coats to keep you nice and toasty (and stylish) this winter. I hope you find them helpful if you’re on a search for the perfect cold-weather gear, like I always am. Stay warm!
Not Too Cold:
(L to R)
BB Dakota Belmont Jacket – A great way to wear a leather jacket in the colder months and still stay warm. How cute is the shearling peeking out? There’s also a hood, so if it starts hailing you’ll be protected.
Nameless Faux Shearling Jacket – As you can see, I am kind of loving shearling right now. At $52 this jacket is kind of a no-brainer. I’ve never heard of this brand before, but I’m kind of curious now.
Unreal Fur Wanderlust Coat – I’ve never been a fur person, and Jeff thinks they’re ugly, but I’ve kind of developed a crush on these coats. I occasionally see them on Cocktails & Luxury so I know they can be cute when done right.
ALC Lee Haircalf Leather Jacket – Leather and leopard go together like peas and carrots, so this jacket can’t be wrong. Just don’t look at the price. Really, don’t look. I’ve seen similar styles floating around here for around $40 so I’m convinced there’s less expensive versions in the US too.
SW3 Bespoke Chesham Aviator Jacket – More leather and shearling for the books. It’s like the big sister to the previous shearling jackets. I love the black and white combo. It’ll look a whole lot better once it goes on sale.
Fa-reezing Winter Coats:
(L to R)
Canadian Goose Trillium Parka – This may be pricey, but will last for years. In Denmark these coats are twice the price, and are still very popular. If you live in a seriously cold spot (like upstate NY), this jacket is perfect.
Zara Coat with Buckle Collar – Camel just makes everything look more chic in my opinion. This may be the one coat I invest in this year. It’s sleek, figure flattering, has a classic style, but the asymmetrical zipper adds a bit of edge.
Juicy Couture Wool Melton Moto Coat – I love these updates on the classic peacoat. The faux leather details and moto-style make this coat interesting. I’ve seen less expensive versions of this style around, so I’m sure you’ll be able to as well.
Zara Printed Double-Breasted Coat – The subtle leopard print and classic shape make this coat wearable, but not tacky. There’s also enough space to layer some cozy sweaters underneath. Pretty perfecto if you ask me.
Joseph Man Long Wool Coal – Ah, if only I had all of the riches! Who doesn’t want a hot pink coat!? One of my friends in college always had colorful coats, and you could always find her in a group. It adds a bit of cheer among the otherwise bleary, dull sea of black and grey that seem to dominate the winter months.
Well, I hope you enjoyed the taste of winter wear, even if you were just window shopping and day dreaming like myself. Now I think I will get back to drinking hot chocolate and staring out of the window, wishing it was summer.
What’s your favorite part about winter? Do you have any coats or jackets you’re obsessed with right now?
