I am a big believer in having a statement coat or jacket. If you can, invest in a piece with high quality fabric and a well-cut silhouette. Poor-fitting coats are not flattering and cheaper fabrics tend to wear faster so you’ll end up replacing your coat next year. Make sure you get something that will last for many seasons to come – or at the very least, until you get tired of it. If you love a bargain like me, make sure you check out your local consignment stores or websites like Versitarie.
