The holiday season may be winding down, but we’re still in the thick of winter… which means we’re still bundling up for the next few months! There are 3 classic winter coat styles that every fashion lover should have in their closet, and today I’m partnering with Bernardo (available at Nordstrom!) to style my favorite outerwear pieces.
every girl needs a wool coat in her closet for work and formal evening affairs!shop
I love a patterned coat! This one comes in a classic, burgundy plaid / checkered pattern that is perfect for me to wear to work and meetings. They’re are also the best outerwear complement for evening-wear… which is definitely something to keep in mind as you’re heading out for New Year’s Eve this week!
If you’re into texture, this teddy coat is right up your alley! I fell in love with the super soft fabric, and the collar adds a touch of whimsy to an already-great outerwear piece. The great thing about a teddy coat is that it walks the line between formal and casual… you can dress it up during the day, and it works just as well for evenings out too! Teddy coats are a great choice for fashion lovers who are looking for cruelty-free outerwear options, because even though they have all the texture, they’re usually made of animal-friendly materials… so you can get the luxe look with zero guilt!
the puffer coat is made for winter sports and casual days out, but the metallic finish on this one is perfect for occasions too.shop
I took my puffer coat with me on our ski trip in Vail earlier this month, and it was the best decision ever. Even though puffer coats are typically made for active winter sports, these days they’ve made a huge splash on the street-style scene and they come in so many cool colors, fits and finishes (like this metallic blue one!), that you don’t even have to look like the Michelin Man to rock a puffer :)
Which coat is your favorite, and how are you wearing it this winter? If you’re on the market for affordable, warm outerwear, make sure you check out Bernardo at Nordstrom!
