I haven’t bought a new winter coat in awhile. I tend to stick with what works: something down-filled, long and makes me look like the Stay Puft marshmallow man from Ghostbusters. But this year, I’m changing it up and I’m convinced it’s going to make my winter better. Once December rolls around, this coat is my every day go-to. It is a fantastic coat. It keeps me warm on the coldest days. I love it! But I also don’t feel very stylish in it. Since we live in our winter coats 150 days out of the year, we should all invest in one that we truly, truly love.
After hemming and hawing over purchasing one that a) is warm and b) is very chic, I finally bought this one from Zara. I never usually buy things from Zara but after seeing this pop up around the internet and obsessing over it for well over a month, I did it. And I’m so happy I did! Just look at that collar! SWOON.
Scroll through for some of my coat picks for guys and gals that are equally swoon-worthy, including some from local shops right here in Portland.
