as a stylist i am always collecting pictures. i came across these from jil sander’s fall 1995 campaign, shot by craig mcdean. i love a good coat and think that these images depict just how gorgeous a classic coat is. i have picked a few coats that i really really like and think are super chic. they are also all under 300.00 🙂 and look like they could go for 3,000 ..well maybe 800-1.000. .. these are classic styles with a twist that can be worn to a holiday dinner over a dress or with jeans and a sweater to lunch with a friend.
i found this long military coat at one of my favorite online stores ASOS. i love this coat, i have been eyeing it for weeks but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. i am going to next week i think. its very military yet classic at the same time. i love the details and shape it creates on the body. i also love that it is long, it is great to wear with a chunky sweater or sexy dress alike. a piece that you should get in your closet! you can purchase it here.i love this jacket because it is both navy and black and because it is made of two different fabrics. it completes an outfit in two seconds. i always mix black and blue and like that this jacket is composed of both colors and of two different materials. it is a sporty yet sophisticated jacket. another find from asos, you can purchase it here
this jacket is a real statement piece. i love its silhouette. it is a very rich looking jacket, it look’s like something you could purchase in the louis vuitton store. it is very elegant and something that you will have for years and years. to wear with leather pants and boots, or over a sexy pencil skirt and pumps. its a very smart piece, again another beauty i found at asos, it is by mango. purchase it here
this jacket is very feminine. it pinches at the waist creating a very small waist and flairs out like a skirt. it is a gorgeous coat that can be made more feminine with a filrty dress opaque tights and little booties, or made a bit more masculine pairing it with skinny jeans and a pointed toe kitten heel . its a very chic piece and for a very good price, from urban outfitters. purchase it here
this is a great jacket for those of you who love red. i really like the leather piping and find the belt to be very flattering on the figure. i love the site piperlime where i found this jacket, purchase it here
there’s nothing like a classic pea coat.this one is very sixties, the larger collar and round gold buttons make it very stylish and remind me of something catherine deneuve wore in one of my favorite films belle de jour. this can be worn with a shift dress and a pair of round toe or square toe pumps, or a great pair of jeans and thick turtleneck sweater and booties. well that’s how i would wear it. it comes in a variety of colors, i found it on j.crew.com. it can be purchased here
