As most of you know, I am a self proclaimed "texture slut" and therefore both drawn to and addicted to fall/winter jackets and coats. My obsession began early on with my grandmothers furs, and has evolved into a beast all its own. Fun, fuzzy and typically a conversation starter, there is no reason not to play with our "outer shells" in the colder months. Here I am rounding up my top 5 most inquired about coats with links to either the identical piece or a similar style. Stay warm my friends!
1. Creamy and cozy
This was one of my favourite gifts ever (shout out to my Aunty Lori!). I love incorporating whites and creams into my winter wardrobe. It's like you are a walking monochromatic scene from some pretty winter movie. It's an easy way to feel fresh AF. This coat is not the WARMEST out there but it does the trick on milder days. I feel cozy when just looking at it. BE WARNED: if you don't like to be touched, don't buy this coat. The amount of hugs you receive in a day will inevitably go up exponentially.

2. Daytime denim
I love this cozy lil' denim jacket from Silver Jeans Co.. Denim jackets are not typically a cool weather go to, but with the lining in this one makes it surprisingly warm! Throw on a toque and scarf and you good to go.

3. Pop of pink
This is probably my most asked about coat! I bought it last season from an Aussie brand called Unreal Fur, and it seems to have made an appearance again this season (score!). They make vests, coats, and waistcoats in super playful coloured fur - all to die for. ME L-O-V-E. The collar of this cream dream is in my opinion, the perfect pink. You instantly feel glamorous when you put this coat on, and its surprisingly versatile for a statement coat.

4. Classic black
I can't take credit for this find either (shout out to my Nana for buying it in the 40's), but a classic black coat is exactly that: a classic. You can dress it up with heels or down with denim, but I have found this coat to be absolutely timeless. Since it's an investment piece, I encourage you to splurge a little more (like that will be hard!).

5. The Little Blue Monster
I bought this coat a couple years ago in the sale section of Urban Outfitters for a whopping 40 bucks. Luckily, these shaggy babies popped up all over fall collections, and have graced our presence in all the colours of the rainbow. Going with a brighter hue can add some colour to your wardrobe, and can lead to fun new nicknames, like, "the little blue monster".
