Button Up Your Overcoat...

Columbus Day with its traditional coat sales signals, to us, the beginning of thinking about winter. If you spend any time on the windy streets of New York, you will understand what a valuable purchase a down puffer coat can be. J. Crew, Eddie Bauer and Calvin Klein all offer their version of this staple. There are so many fabulous trends now you may opt for a minimalist, fitted tweed, a camel military inspired wool, an edgy faux fur, or an updated purple peacoat. (see Resources, J. Crew) A classic, lined trench coat will never let you down. Banana Republic celebrates their anniversary with a 2008 version. Consider a new coat an essential purchase. Choose wisely and it will become your go to piece all season and for years to come. It’s the one you’ll throw over your jeans when you run to the store, insulating your little jacket and wide leg pants for work, or taking your taffeta skirt to the opera. If you are always in black, a coat may be the way to add color to the coming dark season. Take good care of yourself...
