I have a dilemma & I need your help!
My everyday winter coat is dead.
There’s holes in the lining, the outside is frayed, & in general it has a dirty look to it from being just old.
I need a coat that I can wear to school everyday, so it has to be nice enough to wear with dresses but not too nice so that I freak out when I accidentally roll over it with my chair.
I’ve searched through the mall & here are some contenders but I’m not entirely too happy with any of them:
I like both styles but do not like the price range.
$260-325 is not really what I want to spend towards a coat I’m going to beat up all winter long.
Nice, but a little boring. And the shortness is going to look ridiculous with a lot of my longer sweaters, dresses, etc.
So far this is the front runner. Slightly better priced than J Crew, long enough, and it looks good on.
However, it’s a little boring right? Or is it just a classic coat that I will be glad I got after the fact? I don’t know.
My usual go-to. They failed me. Their one winter coat that fits into my criteria just looks weird on.
Lands End Canvas
See above issues on shorter coats.
Its pretty much the same price as the Banana monogram one, which I think I like better.
Overall readers, what do I do?
Are there any other places I need to be checking out (besides the whopping 4 I’ve gone to)?
Or do I just suck it up, buy the Banana one, & accept that its a good, sturdy coat that will take me through the winter.
