Fashion Friday: The (Still) Staple Coat

I’s that time of year again (if you live in the northeast or mid-west, that is)…. COAT SEASON!  I inherited my love of a good coat from my mom (whose collection is pretty epic) and now that I have a legit, HUGE coat closet I can imbibe in a few extras this season.  Last year the “it” coat for fall/ winter was the army green anorak with (faux) fur trimmed hood.  And guess what, it’s still HUGE this year too (lucky for our wallets!)  There are a few variations on the theme, like the the duffle coat version, the glossy grey anorak version the pea coat version and the puffy coat version (all via Nordstrom, which has a killer selection in so many price points).

I find that in the colder months I dress in a total uniform of sweaters, skinny jeans, boots and this coat (I bought one last year and just need to find out where it’s hiding post-construction).  This look works for a variety of ages and body types too, so if you aren’t already rocking this combo, now’s the time to try it!
