Bundle up

Faux, Fur, Fleece, Fun and Fuzzy…these are winter coats and the added bonus is that they actually keep us warm while they make us look hot! I don’t really love coats and usually consider them a necessary evil when the temp goes below 40 degrees. Therefore, I also require getting a coat at a great price. Good news, this is the time to stock up and bundle up on the best coats and the best prices of the season. My faves:

Wrap It Up
So easy, so trendy. Jessica London Plaid Cocoon Coat has hidden button front, side pockets, and a relaxed and elegant shape. Warm and cozy wool/polyester without any bulk. For when it’s a little warmer but you still need to keep the wind or chill out, Woman Within Fleece Wrap Jacket has a cascading collar and a flattering, easy fit.

Nanook of the North
When it really gets cold, you know, that bone-chilling why do I live here kind of cold, then it’s time to call up the down! Woman Within Coat, Microfiber Down Parka comes in 7 colors. Why is this plus size coat in super-light down such a best seller? Quality, fit, comfort. What else could you ask for!


Car Coat
Is it called a car coat because it’s easy to wear when you’re getting in and out of the car? Well, that’s what I need it to be, so that’s how I shop for a coat that only has to keep me reasonably warm but definitely has no bulk and can slide in and out of the car or cabs. Woman Within Leather Hooded Anorak Jacket has plush shearling-look trim and an adjustable inside drawstring waist for a perfect fit…and it’s an easy ‘car coat’.
