Living in Dallas, I very rarely need a real winter coat.
However, this doesn’t stop me from window shopping for them. I have a little daydream about living somewhere with a real winter and think about how great I would look in all the new coats every year.
Daydream #1 is creative cool in the city. I need a statement coat. Something to stand out. Something a bit weird.
This leopard print coat from Eloquii is perfect for that. The beautiful emerald green collar gives it a little pop and it definitely stands out in a sea of black wool. This is sized from 14/16 to a 26/28 US, which means it’s great for UK size 30/32. The best part? It’s currently on sale for 40% off!
Maybe leopard print isn’t for you. This hot pink skater coat with ruffles still stands out of a crowd, with a huge pop of color. I love the skirted bottom and the frilly shoulders. This is a steal at £75 and is available in UK sizes 16-30 and US sizes 12-28.
Day Dream #2 is Boogie Nights. Pair those bell bottoms with some disco or some folk music, whatever floats your boat.
ASOS Curve is bringing back 70’s glam with faux fur coats this season. Everybody can be a little bit Jerry Hall with the help of a faux fur. This midi-length is available in UK sizes 18-28 (size 30 is currently out of stock) and US sizes 12-24.
This tweedy vintage-y cape from ModCloth can also make your 70’s dreams come true. Sizing up to a US 4X, so just add bell bottoms and clogs.
Daydream #3 is Ultra Luxe. Luxurious fabrics, cool, cultivated styles, and being the HBIC.
The Beas coat from Universal Standard is perfect for my ultra-luxe, ultra-boss alter-ego. Cosmopolitan, polished, no drama, no trifling. Just lush fabrics with high quality finishes. Universal Standard offers international shipping, and this is available in US size 10-28.
Isolde Roth’s shawl collar coat from Navabi is another ultra-luxe option. The rich color is unusual enough to stand out without sacrificing the sophistication. This is available in UK 14-26, with size 28 being sold out, and US 10-22. Use She Might Be’s exclusive code “SheMightBe15” for 15% off.
Daydream #4 – Hello Snowbunny
This Faux Fur Hooded Coat from Evans is perfect for trekking through the snow on the way to meet bae in a mountain lodge. Since this is a daydream, Tom Hardy meets me there with a glass of champagne and a fire blazing. This coat will get you almost as warm. Since there’s just the one Tom Hardy, heat things up with this coat, available in UK sizing 14-32 and US sizing 10-28.
If you’re a more rock n’ roll type of snowbunny, this faux fur parka from River Island might be for you. This parka mixes soft faux fur with shiny coated fabric and silver zips. Soft with a hard edge, great for grunge snowbunnies on the go. Available in UK sizes 18-28 and US sizes 14-24.
