The Three Must-Have Coats of the Season

Long gone are the days when just one coat would suffice – now it seems we need a different jacket for every occasion. But when the styles are all so different, who can blame us for justifying that third (or fourth) coat purchase of the season? If you’re having trouble deciding which must-have item to scoop up next, here are some ideas:

Black Hidden Zipper Leather Jacket: Not just for biker chicks anymore, this ebony number adds a little edge to sweet frocks and Saturday night’s typical jeans-and-heels combo.

Black Belted Wool and Cashmere Cape: The cape is back in full force, and we couldn’t be happier. With less bulk than a standard winter coat (and much more chic), this piece is the perfect option for last-minute dinner plans. Bonus: It can be left on through the whole meal to keep you warm without compromising style.

Black Classic Belted Down Coat: The A-player in winter warmth? The belted puffer. Now with a more streamlined fit and flattering vertical seams, this is one coat we’ll never head to the bus stop without.

Our Go-Everywhere Coats: Capes, Down Jackets, & More Boutique opens Monday, October 15, at 11AM ET.
