It’s the Perfect Time For a Wool Coat

Right after denim/army jacket season (that is actually still kind of happening in New York City), comes the pre-parka chic coat phase, which always helps to elevate jeans or whatever else you might throw on any given day. Everything here is a smart investment and classic enough to wear for years, like  Mango’s Handmade Coat that is part of its sustainable collection and has a cool, rich-looking vibe à la old Celine or Jil Sander (which p.s. is launching its not-to-be-missed Uniqlo +J collection — that includes some great coats right now!).

Here’s an old-Hollywood Ingrid Bergman-esque robe coat that gives anything a shot of instant glamour.

Ralph Lauren’s military green double-breasted number is a nice classic like the one your mom once bought you for your first job.

I love the oatmeal shade a cozy feel of this Mango oversized topper.

Anine Bing’s perfect camel version can be worn belted or not. And the roomy patch pockets are everything.

Here’s another forever style from J. Crew. And the navy gives it a slight pea coat feeling.

Madewell’s herringbone coat feels a little thrift-shop-score-in-the-’80s in the very best possible way.

And this guy from H&M has those good dolman sleeves and cuff belts that make it very 1950s-menswear (think Ricky Ricardo heading out to the Tropicana — so chic!)

This one from Uniqlo has a single button that makes it just the right thing to wear over a flowy dress.

Theory’s military coat is made of recycled wool, and its epaulettes and double-breasted cut give it a cool masculine edge.

  1. Could you do an article for “housecoats”? Being a part time working mom I am spending more time in the house overseeing remote learning and am looking for something warm and cosy to throw on, wear around that house, and easily washed after dealing with kids, dogs etc.
    Maybe something cotton and quilted or fleece? But it has to be comfy, goes the everything and washes well and NOT scrimp on style. Can you help with the hunt?
