I LOVE coats- perhaps more than shoes...wait, no, but close second, haha. My mom yells at me each year because I buy at least 2 new coats. My fave is the ADAM first one...on the search now for a look for less! :)

LPC said...

Love that first plaid.

Maria Confer said...

Printed coats are so fun and fabulous. I adore the brocade pastoral scene coat!!

Couture Cookie said...

Not a bad idea at all... coats can be a little too minimalistic sometimes! My choice here would be Tibi or Blumarine. :)

Blair said...

Muy buena selección,me encanta el 1 abrigo.

i was thissss close to getting that nanette lepore floral coat but it had an a line so it wasn't as fitted as i would've liked...i would definitely love one of these though :)

meraldia said...

I like them! It's an interesting option instead of the 'boring' black coat!

Giambattista Valli: this pick actually surprises me, because I don't usually love this brand! But I love it!

Beautiful coats, I like Hanii Y's short sleeve hooded coat, something about what seems to be an oriental design.

Intrinsically Florrie said...

Lovely selection as usual darling.
I do love that Kinder Aggugini coat, and the backdrop on the runway.
Your blog posts make me happy when you include wonderful garments like that, which are really gorgeous and 'me' but I've never heard of before. You've had some great winter florals lately.

Ela said...

Oh these patterned coats are so gorgeous. I'm tempted to buy one every year but then I think "I'll get sick of it"...probably not considering I want one every year :)

love the Blumarine and Narciso Rodriguez :o]

AX80 said...

I really enjoy the fact that you introduce to people a way to get inspired by high fashion designs and apply it into their own wardrobes through easily affordable ways. Smart :)

Other than that, I really enjoy the classic trend that's coming back. The more proper british maybe? It's filled with such elegance and poise.

Leah said...

Absolutely fabulous coats... I love the 2nd to the last coat. I really really do.

I am in LOVE with the Oscar de la Renta coat.

MizzJ said...

The Basso & Brooke is gorgeous! I love the edgy, geometric print.

Christen said...

Great post! Printed coats are so important because they are worn over all of your other clothes on most cold days. So your coat should definitely make a strong statement and a print is such a great way to do that!

pranksygang said...

the 1st picture is good!!
