Hey guys! Happy Thursday on a short week here in Canada! We’ve got some Halloween festivities we are planning for this weekend. We’ve got our costumes (multiple) ready to be worn and I just finished putting the last coat of paint on my pumpkins for the front entry! I placed my candy order on @amazon to hand out to the kids and it was hassle free.
I wanted to share some of our favorite coat trends for this seasons cold weather. We both have a bit of a coat fetish so I am loving this idea. Some of these trends are still on our wish list while others we already own. I will be sharing some dupes and lots of links so that you can get these in your shopping cart and will arrive on time for the 0 to -30 C weather.
The Teddy Coat
This beautiful coat usually fits oversized and your gonna see a lot of neutral tones and tons of different styles made out of this Sherpa material. We like to style this one opened most times so you don’t look so boxy and the difference between your coat color and your shirt color creates some definition in your outfit. When it’s colder outside – if you choose to keep the coat open throw on a bulky scarf to provide extra warmth.
This one is on the hot list this year – and comes in every color of the rainbow! You’ll find it offered in cropped, regular and long styles. We are both digging the cropped! Check out @aritzia for a beautiful high gloss black – on our wish list! If your on a budget – @HM also offers the cropped style in a taupe and black! They are comfortable and are suitable for the ladies that love the “athleisure” trend.
The Long Collared Trench
This is my favorite go to – it’s classy, it keeps me warm and it can be dressed up or down! It’s often great for really adding that next level of class to any outfit. This year we are seeing a lot more variance to make that trench stand out from another. There are a lot more options including color offerings, color blocking collars, animal prints, and pearl details.
My favorite place to shop for this style of coat is @winners for a good dupe! This year I purchased a beautiful leopard print and an emerald green one with an orange collar – each for $69.99.
We’ve also linked the @oldnavy trench – when you sign up for their newsletter you will save 30% off in-store or online purchase bringing this coats price down to $54.99. They have a rich cognac brown and a beautiful heather grey they are offering this year. Out of all the trench coat purchases – this one has the softest material and doesn’t pill! I’ve got my blush one from last year and it’s still in great condition.
The Fur Coat
Any real fur coat is gonna cost +$500 but if you’ve got a mother-in-law or grandmother that has an old one that she no longer wears…take it off their hands and put it to fabulous use! We’ve also seen some @winners and @valuevillage – both great places to browse!
If you have a vintage clothing store near you – definitely try there. This pastel pink one was purchased @winners a couple years ago and paid $49.99 for it! Depending on your style – the cropped or the full length coats in this material are both beautiful options.
Topshop has a beautiful double-breasted faux fur coat they offer in many shades of brown – seen below.
Fur Lined Denim & Leather Coat
This is on our wish list! I love the look but just not sure how often I would wear it! It’s a very staple piece and if I had troubles styling any coat – it’d be this one…I am up for the challenge! Found this $49 beauty at Walmart.
I’ve always been a huge fan of black and all shades of brown worn together – so this jacket is a must in my wardrobe! The brown fur lined leather coat is from Nordstrom and is worth the splurge – $175.
Well ladies – that’s all I have for today! If you have the budget you can find tons more at Nordstrom.com, Aritzia.com and HudsonBay.com. If your looking for more budget friendly choices we suggest Winners, Marshall’s, or H&M. Happy shopping – make sure to hashtag your new Winter Coat purchased #thebirdsandbeesfashion
