Splurge vs Steal – Fall/Winter Outerwear Edition
For this edition of Splurge vs. Steal, I wanted to explore all the options there are for coats and outerwear. I think we often get so used to grabbing our everyday coat out of the closet on the way out the door that we forget that are so many beautiful varieties for the colder months! Below I’ll show 5 different styles and options for each that are a wide range of price points.
WOOL COLLARLESS COAT
These coats are gorgeous and instantly can dress up any look. Beyond being warm (which they are), these types of coats are classy and polished. I love the bow detail on the Kate Spade version, but the DKNY coat is stylish, as well.
This jacket falls under the “grab n go” category. I LOVE my North Face and wear it so much in the winter. In fact, if it gets really cold, I’ll even layer this under another coat. These fleeces are warm and cozy and perfect for the fall/winter.
These, like fleeces, are perfect for adding an extra layer of warmth when it gets cold out. These can be worn alone or on top of or under another coat/jacket. I think the white color is really crisp, but you can find these in any shade of the rainbow.
LEATHER DETAILING COAT
I’ve mentioned before how much I love leather detailing. Coats are no exception. I think these coats are so stylish and can make any outfit look instantly polished. The tweed and leather in the H & M version marries two of my favorite textures while the Vince Camuto jacket is classic and clean.
CLASSIC KHAKI TRENCH
The trench coat to the outerwear world is like the Chanel of the handbag world. The shape and style is immediately recognizable and admirable. These are perfect to transition from fall to winter. To me, this type of coat will never go out of style. Paired with skinnies and pumps, or a dress and sandals, you can’t go wrong.
