One of my favorite things about fall is all the possibilities of coats … long, short, puffy, and fuzzy! Particularly so with this season’s military trend – it really resonates with me, classic and with just a hint of patriotic uniformity. There’s something about navy blues and army greens that feel extra real for the colder months – riffing on iconic shapes that are wearable in the most sincere form of the word.
I’ve fan-girled over this coat for as long as it’s been on the market (so approximately 5 years – and no, I still do not own it). But I love that it’s tough AND cool AND warm. It’s got that winter coat x-factor, and is actually based on a traditional flight bomber jacket.
I think we could all agree a furry lined parka is needed in every man, woman, and child’s wardrobe. It’s like the epitome of casual chic – you know, cotton washed and worn to the optimal softness AND lined with shearling. The ultimate high-low mix!
I love the silhouette of a long, tailored coat. Just by throwing it on you’re instantly put together, no matter what you have underneath! Plus it gives the feeling of authority, without compromising warmth.
A bit of nostalgia comes to mind when I think about a peacoat. It might be THE most timeless of them all, but I like that they get updated every year. Also, they always make me think of fleet week, which in turn really makes me want to wear one!
