trend & true tuesday: coats

Trend: Puffers.

Lately we’ve seen a big resurgence of 80’s style short puffer jackets (the long ones are pretty much permanently in given that sometimes you just need to be warm). I really appreciate how practical this trend is because ya girl really hates being cold. (Remember waxed cotton jackets? I’m convinced those actually make you colder.) I think these will probably cycle through in a couple of seasons, but for now, I’m here for it. I love that they come in all varieties of colors/prints/fabrics so that we can all keep our individuality instead of looking like the goodnight macaroon otk boot crew (if you know you know). My favorites are this corduroy one from Kohl’s, this leopard one from Target, this waterfall style from Amazon, and this blue shearling one from Forever21.

True: Trench Coats.

I truly think every woman should have a good trench coat in her closet. It’s so classic and really comes in handy when it’s raining but you still need to look like an adult going to work instead of a kid going out to splash in puddles, which is how I feel in my regular rain coat. I found mine at a thrift shop a few years ago and recently one a custody battle against my sister over it (we were kind of swapping in back and forth for a while.) There are so many great options out there, but this classic one from ASOS and this pale pink one from Nordstrom are my favorites. For a more casual style, I love this one from J.Crew (that orange lining!), and this one from Amazon is perfect if you’re looking for a more affordable price point.
