I recently bought a new winter coat from j. Crew, so I wanted to share with you some of the beautiful and classic coats from their selection. If you are planning on purchasing a coat from j. Crew, I highly recommend choosing one that can be customized by adding a thinsulate layer. When I visited the j. Crew store, I was disappointed to see that their coats were extremely thin and not suited to the New York cold. However, when I got home and went online, I discovered that several of the coats (including the two pictured below) come with the option of thinsulate, which provides an extra layer of warmth. I purchased the double-cloth lady day coat pictured below with thinsulate, and I can vouch for the fact that it really does add warmth without adding any bulkiness.
Double-cloth lady day coat, $298 (with thinsulate, $318)
Double-cloth sybil coat, $298 (with thinsulate, $318)
By the way, I absolutely love the dark poppy color pictured above. So perfect for the holidays, but very classic at the same time!
