Cozy in a Coat

Brrr. Coat season is back. Every fall and winter, I get excited by all the new coats on the market. And, this year, coats are looking so good. I’m drawn to outerwear with fresh prints like the Elsie Plaid Coat and voluminous silhouettes like the Punch Dot Cocoon coat. I’m trying really hard, though, to resist purchasing a new coat this season because I don’t need one.

To keep warm yesterday, I reached for my French Connection Pretty Poodle Coat. This coat is a chubby knit, oversized topper with hip details like batwing sleeves and a high funnel neck. I found it in TJ Maxx a couple years ago and it remains a favorite. If you like this style, H&M’s wool-blend coat is similar.
