Colorful Coat to Brighten Up Your Winter

2:16 PM

Double-cloth Metro Coat with Thinsulate - J.Crew (similar herehere and here)

Originally from the 2011 winter catalog, this J.Crew Metro Coat has been one of my favorite winter coats over the years. Its vibrant color and the well tailored silhouette cheers me up every winter, not to mention its 3M Thinsulate inner lining that keeps me warm despite the frozen weather outside.

 



Not sure if it's just me, but I am a bit disappointed by J.Crew's coat selections this year. Where did all the beautiful well fitted winter coats go? As much as I love these boy-inspired looks, all I see are the oversized baggy coats, or chester coats, as the industry defines. We still want to look slim while bundling up with layers after all, right?

Although the metro coat has been long gone in J.Crew's catalog, you should still be able to find them on eBay or other third party retailers. Alternatively, try the Lady Day Coat, which consistently comes back every year, with a wide range of color selections.

  14. I LOVE the jacket! Though I tend to gravitate toward neutrals, every time I see a bright colored coat, I'm more temped to splurge on a new one.

  17. Love this coat and the color. J.Crew has had this color in rotation for many seasons and I still can't get enough of it. The Crew can do no wrong in my eyes. You look absolutely adorable.
