The farmer’s almanac is predicting a numbing winter with below average temperatures for 2/3 of the country as well as average to above normal winter precipitation. That cold news coupled with below average temps in my home town has got me searching the web looking for a great new coat.
Lucky for me and you, designers must have predicted a colder than usual winter too, when they began dreaming up their fall/winter collections because unique statement making coats appear far and wide. There are so many great styles, colors and shapes that there is no reason to be left out in the cold.
A few of my faves that will keep you warm and stylish.
This Alice + Olivia coat gets mega style points as well as functional points for its big collar that will keep the chill out. Available at www.shopbop.com.
Make a statement in this military inspired super chic winter white coat with silver details. It also has a bit of spandex which gives it great shape while allowing you the freedom of movement that you sometimes don’t get with other coats. Available at www.whitehouseblackmarket.com.

One can not mention great coats without including one from J. Crew the arbiter of stylish pea-coats. This one has a vintage parisian feel with a dramatic fold over collar. Available in great colors at www.jcrew.com.
This sweater sleeve coat brings you the coziness of a pullover cable sweater and the warmth of a wool coat. It is the perfect coat to wear on the weekends with jeans and boots giving you a casual, trendy style. Available at www.anthropologie.com.
