Well…it snowed in Boston last night and I heard there was some accumulation in Upstate New York, so I think it’s appropriate that I dedicate today’s post to winter coats. If you live in the North East you absolutely need a winter coat, which can definitely put a damper on the rest of the outfit. My boyfriend likes to refer to my coat as “The Sleeping Bag”. My mother purchased the coat for me, it’s the warmest thing I have ever worn and I could probably survive in the tundra with it on, but it does absolutely nothing for my female figure. Ladies, you need a coat that has feminine detailing or tailored curves, a belted waist also does the trick. Below is a selection of my favorite coats this Fall, all under $200. I threw in a coat specifically for running and various outdoor activities, you never know when you might bump into someone on the river or the park.
