Fall is here guys!
While it may not feel like fall my favorite season has technically arrived.
Last season, camel coats we a thing. and I totally bought into it here.
This season, camel coats are still a thing and I'm even more obsessed.
If you have followed me for awhile you may have realized that I have quite a collection of fall winter coats (a few of my favorites here and here) and when I spotted the outerwear collection at Banana Republic this season I became beyond excited.
This particular camel coat is such a classic piece and so well made I knew that I had to add it to my already too expansive collection.
When I look for a so called "classic coat" there are 3 things that I look for when shopping around.
It really doesn't seem like that big of a deal but heavier coats are pricey!
So when shopping for winter outerwear make sure the color is something that is compatible with the majority of your winter wardrobe.
Ensuring that a heftier price tag item will get its use in your closet make sure it goes with a ton of pieces.
Hard to believe, but sometimes I like a tighter fit to my clothes but outerwear isn't
really the place to opt for that.
When buying a coat fall/winter piece, always think of that extra layer you may need.
You are most likely going to invest a little bit more on this closet staple so you need to make sure that it will fit in various situations (ie. with or without heavy sweater).
There shouldn't be much of a fit difference between the two.
Super important and where my Fashion student study comes in handy.
Fabric makes all the difference and when investing in a coat or any outerwear piece, ensure that it is of a good quality material.
In my opinion, wool jackets are great quality but you have to ensure that the construction is up to par as well.
Hopefully some of these tips help you get prepped for Fall and the much cooler Winter ahead.
