1. The Military Inspired Anorak

​Anorak Coat: Nordstrom | Top: J Crew | Purse: Stella Mccartney  ​

This coat is perfect for any off duty look. There’s a pop of glamour with its faux ostrich feathers plus the price is affordable. I think that the feathers  collar makes this coat a bit more special than your everyday anorak.

2. The Timeless Trench

Timeless is what this coat exemplifies, ergo featuring this coat in 2 blog posts: my camel coat and my how to look expensive post. I just can’t get enough! Check out those posts to see how you can make use of your trench this winter. The coat even complements even a basic sweater+jeans combo!

3. The Faux Fur Coat

You know how you have that one secret weapon item in your closet? Well this coat is just that. It is a head turner that is incredibly chic. Its soft color block and sleek silhouette makes me feel like a chic Parisian roaming around the city.

4. The Wool Coat

This classic look is preppy and bold. A staple coat all women should have, it is  the perfect topper to any outfit and can easily be worn with a dressy holiday outfit or like I have paired here, with a simple tee and jeans.

5. Duster Coat

Duster coats have been hitting the runways like a storm recently. The one I’m wearing today is a perfect in between coat. It’s wearable yet still makes a statement because of its dramatic length and graphic print.

    So an “affordable price” is almost $300… Affordable for who?
    Like the coats, just way too pricey to be called essential.
