Frigid Outside But Toasty In Here: The Perfect Winter Investment

Posted by: Rachel Iwaniec

I thought I would share my appreciation and feeling of fulfillment with my most recent purchase.  It’s the perfect camel, slim coat with the simplest details; two buttons, two big pockets and a nice thick lapel.  It hits right above the knee and its combination of over-sized and structured shape makes for the ideal addition to any outfit.  Wrapped over some sweatpants and converse or black jeans and a pair of heels, this baby makes anything look right.  I’ve seen a few good ones in black and dark grey as well.  But it’s the shape that makes the coat so magical.

 While trends are continuously changing and expiring, classic items such as the perfect coat are the few immortals among the rest.  So rather than just showing you what designers have put out there for Fall 12, I’ve decided to give you an array of inspiration on this perfect example of outwear from various seasons and a few snaps I took on the streets of Soho.
