Classic Coats

Fun fact: we still write Christmas lists to Santa.  Obviously, they go to our parents and are filled with more practical things than what they used to contain (like bubblegum machines and popcorn tins – yes I was a fat kid), but my parents still write “from Santa” on our presents.  I love it.  If I could, I would totally stay a kid forever because obviously being a grown up is the worst.  The big item on my list this year will be a ladylike coat.  The hard part is finding one that I love because once I decide I want to want something, I become just unbelievably picky about it.  I don’t know why I have to make everything harder than it is.  Here are some of the contenders.  I’m leaning towards either the Loft one at the top right or the Mango one.  Thoughts?

    Tons of great coats! If you are wanting a basic/go with everything coat for daily wear I would go with something gray. Gray can look dressed down so easily with jeans, but also dresses up well with a more formal outfit. Black coats are considered basic but they collect fuzz so easily! You need a constant lint roller. You can’t see that kind of wear and tear on a gray coat.

    But if you want something fun, get a color of course, haha. Gray is always playing it so practical, and who wants to be practical every single day? Jenn at East Meets South

    I was really digging that Pim one until I looked at the reviews and everyone seemed pretty disappointed. So…. I think I like the Loft of even the Calvin Klein. 🙂 Good luck!

    I love the Loft! it has the detail that you are looking for. The other is nice but shapeless. The loft has the feminine touches that I think of when you say “ladylike coat.” Look at the back of each and you’ll see what I mean. Good Luck!

    I love the clean lines of the Loft coat – especially as you can wear different scarves at the neck. However, (not going to help at all with this….) I really love the Calvin Klein military style coat. So fashionable and together. Does this help at all???
    No matter a new coat is a wonderful thing.

    Kind of like the gray (animal hair won’t show up as much on it as black).

    I like the Mango one! I have been eyeing that Pim and Larkin one but it got such bad reviews?!
