A Sophisticated Wool Coat Elevates Every Look

Last fall, I said I wouldn’t buy a new coat. But, the coat trends for winter have been exciting my style sensibilities. From teddy coats to super cool puffers, I’ve been trying on new coats. I find myself, however, drawn to polished wool coats. When you throw on a sophisticated wool coat, it almost doesn’t matter what you’re wearing underneath. The resulting look is so chic.

What I’m wearing:

Theory coat (exact style in black, similar, similar) | Shirt (similar, similar)

 Madewell jeans (same cut, same cut) | YSL Toy LouLou bag

Booties (similar) | Fendi sunglasses (sale options) | Earrings (similar)

My sophisticated wool coat is a Theory one button wool coat (see it in black here). I found it in TJ Maxx for a steal. The color, fit, and sharp silhouette checked so many boxes. It’s become the topper that finishes my favorite outfits.

Doesn’t the coat make this basic combination of a white shirt and striped jeans look amazing? It set it off. I’ve worn it with sweatsuits, leggings, skinny jeans, and the final outfit is always sophisticated.

    Serving looks per usual, Psyche! You make those striped jeans look so stylish 🙂 Believe it or not, I recently found a deeply discounted Theory camel wool coat at my TJ Maxx! I was concerned because it was not lined (similar to yours) but its style is so sharp that I’m going to keep it for the milder winter and early spring days. Thanks for giving me just the push I needed lol

      Thanks, Brittany! I’m so thrilled you found a Theory coat as well. I was searching for a coat in camel, so I hesitated to buy this color. When I couldn’t stop thinking about it, though, I returned to the store so quickly.
