Winter means one thing – Shorter days, and longer coats! It also means the inevitable Christmas shopping experience but most of you won’t experience that until the 23rd of December when you’re scrambling to find that item that sold out 2 months ago. That’s okay, because thanks to the wonderful world of online shopping, you can do what I do, avoid it all together and enter the world of online shopping– point, click, and purchase! Today kicks off our Fashion Fix wish list series, starting off with the perfect coat to keep you warm, and most importantly stylish!
- The Bright coat –
Topshop – Wool Boyfriend Coat $179.00
Zara – Boucle Coat $199.00
We call this the coat that gets you noticed. Bright, bold, and definitely out of the ordinary. Too often we stick to dark colors for the even darker winters, but this playful and colorful number is just the right amount of fun for a dreary day.
- The Fluffy coat
Aritzia – Wilfred Free Pollard Jacket $225
A little (fake) fluff never hurt nobody. Aritzia does it best this season!
- The Color Blocking coat
J. Crew – Colorblock Funnelneck Coat ($450.00) – on sale for $340.00
With newbie J. Crew on the Robson block, it’s hard not to bookmark their online shop for browsing. This holiday season they knocked it out of the ball park with this color blocking coat – red, blue and grey, top to bottom fabulous.
- The Oversized coat
Nasty Gal – Coletta Coat $120
Sometimes it’s easy to look like a ball of layers in the midst of trying to stay warm, and adding a coat can look like the icing on a hot mess. Enter the oversized coat to keep your look effortless and chic.
- The Wraparound coat
Zara – Woollen Wraparound coat $159.00
Zara – Wraparound Collar Coat $159.00
That grab and go coat for when you’re flying out the door to another fabulous holiday party. The wraparound/drape coat is that perfect go to when you’re not in the mood for fussy buttons, and not to mention it looks amazing in motion when you’re cat walking around the streets of Vancouver. This is actually my personal wishlist item, hoping I made it on the good girls list this year!
