There are several things to think about before splurging on this item.
- Cost - I believe that this is one of those items that you should not skimp out on. Be prepared to spend quite a bit more for a nice coat but keep in mind that it will last you at least 2 seasons.
- Quality - Make sure that the coat can endure your climate. In other words, choose a coat that is warm/will keep you dry/will block out the wind/has a hood/etc.
- Style - Look for a more classic style in a muted/neutral color. If you buy a coat that is too trendy, it may not be appropriate for work and you risk it going out of style as soon as the next season. Choose a colour such as beige, black, gray or navy. These colours go well with just about anything!
I recently splurged on this amazing coat by Mackage. I fell in love with it the instant I put it on! Not only is it perfectly fitted and beautiful, it is also warm! That was the deciding factor for me as the winters get pretty harsh up here in the north...and I am subjected to take the bus every morning.
