With the chill of winter, knowing a warm wool or cashmere coat is just waiting in the coat closet ready to be worn is a comforting thought indeed. During the holiday shopping months with the sales abounding, I made the decision to invest in winter coats and nothing else. After much waiting I picked up this simple, yet classic cashmere-wool blend trench and couldn’t be happier with my find, especially since I purchased it at a steep discount. (See Net-a-Porter’s coat sale and The Outnet’s here.)
Sales are continuing on quality winter coats through the month of January, and with a clear idea of what you want, you can find yourself a lovely investment item without having to invest all that much. The long coat or mid-calf length (midi-length) is a popular choice as it can be worn over dresses and more formal attire as well as with denim and more casual outfits. I have even worn my new coat over my yoga ensemble simply to make sure I stayed warm from home to studio and back again. Have a look at some inspiration and enjoy.
~Many readers have commented about the Max Mara camel coat (not seen here, but a classic winter coat). While indeed an investment, when you can find it on sale, it is worth purchasing. Below are a handful of Max Mara coats. Take a look and then save it with Shoptagr so that you will be alerted when it goes on sale, no matter how far down the road that may be.
