I am in the market for a new Winter jacket this season. I don’t mean a fierce snow parka, I have one of those, but more along the lines of a car coat with warmth; something stylish and cool that I won’t freeze my buns off in. My jacket I’ve been rocking for a few years is starting to retire. The buttons fall off every other day and it’s not exactly warm unless I layer loads underneath. I am super tiny so a coat with more structure suits my frame. I can’t exactly do over-sized chic unless I really am trying to look like MK and Ash Olsen circa 2005-2009. This year I am looking for a good basic black coat, a plaid one that is black and white or another mix of neutrals and then for layering, a perfect long down jacket (Roots) for an added layer that might otherwise be missing from a regular car coat. Also great for layering under a leather jacket for added warmth and cool stylistic touch.
