Closet Classics, Tall Sizes: Winter Coat

Over the weekend, it got really cold for the first time this fall.  So much so that on Saturday night, I actually went with a winter coat. My classic belted camel coat.  But it’s not in great shape anymore.  The thing I never realized growing up in Oklahoma, and then living in Texas, is that when you have to wear a winter jacket every day for at least 4 months, it is going to wear down really quickly. Or that you might need more than one winter jacket!

So yesterday, I went winter jacket shopping online.  I ended up ordering this one from J.Crew because it was a style I didn’t have, but I LOVE all the others I’ve linked to below as well.  (I will say, Long Tall Sally absolutely has the best selection of winter coats for tall women – no one else even came close.)


I really love this classic navy pea coat from Long Tall Sally and I think this one is great if you’re commuting to work, or need something a bit more formal.  Loft also has a really fresh take on a classic winter coat that I think will last for seasons.
