After last week’s chilly weather, we bet many of you are now looking to invest in a warmer yet fashionable coat. There are so many options to choose from which can be overwhelming, but don’t fret. The WALK has got you covered: here’s a quick guide to chic outerwear at different price points and styles.
1. The Faux Fur Jacket: Everyone loves fur this season! However, let’s be eco-conscious and go with faux fur (our furry friends and wallets will thank us). Forever 21’s affordable hooded faux fur jacket is a great option. This light yet warm coat will keep you cozy and is a great accessory to any plain outfit. Just make sure you don’t pair it with shorts, like the picture shown above.
2. The Wool Coat: dELiA*s designed a cute beige wool toggle coat this season. It is priced very well, and is simple enough to throw onto any outfit before class. The fur-lined hood is also removable, making this a great winter-to-spring transition coat. The beige color may not work for everyone, so purchase it in black and deep plum for those seeking variety.
3. The Leopard Print: Zara’s leopard print and color-blocked coat will definitely set you apart from the more traditional black peacoat. Although a bit more pricy, this coat is both edgy and conservative and can be very versatile. Pair it with jeans and converse for a casual look, or with a black dress and colored heels for more formal attire. Don’t know if you’ll like it? Take advantage of Zara’s free return policy!
4. The Puffer Coat: Feeling down from the wave of wintry mix that blew past campus this past week? No problem. Pick up this Michael Kors Belted Puffer Coat, and you’ll be guaranteed to stay warm. The length of the jacket will make this a good investment for the snowy days to come. Plus, the faux fur collar adds a chic touch to this easy-to-wear closet addition.
