Make An Investment: Fall Coats

I believe one of the highlights of the fall and winter months is being able to invest on a lovely coat. A coat is like a wearable business card. It is says a lot about who you are, your status and/or where you are going. Thus it stands, that you must choose wisely when picking the perfect coat for the season.

 

Coats can be a little a pricey, but it’s a worthy investment as a high-quality coat is one that can be in your closet for years to come. Plus it is important to stay warm and dry while bustling through your city.

 

Now when you are looking for this investment coat you need to remember a couple of things fit, fabric and fluff. You don’t want a coat that is too snug otherwise you won’t be able to wear bulkier items with it on more frigid days. Two, you want to choose fabrics that are warm and water-repellant like wool or treated with a water-reistant finish. Real labels carefully! Lastly..fluff, when choosing a puffer coat 100% goose down is always going to keep you warmest, but with technology there are some polyester fills that do as equally a good job.
