In Texas, buying a coat is a last minute thought. Then we have ice and act like we’ve never seen it and freak out. If it snows we all ask to not go into work and classes are cancelled for a week.
Last year I decided to stop being absurd and invest in a coat. I had never been too excited for this because I always just lived in North Face jackets. So horrific. Those are meant for skiing and work out clothes, not black skinnies. I know it is a sorority effect to fall into, but stray, girl, stray.
My three favorite coats? The wrap, the faux fur and the tomboy. The tomboy is not the correct name for utility structure jackets, but that’s what I think, so I go with it.
The wrap is my favorite because I’m a shortie and have zero waist length. I’ve got longer legs and I tell myself that God just left a few inches off my waist length. Anything I can do to pretend I have a longer waist and the wrap coat is the perfect way to do that!
I’ve compiled my three favorite coats for you below. If you’re a sorority girl trying to branch out in college go for the tomboy! If you are a shortie like me, get an Olivia Pope wrap. And if you’re a go-getter and “it girl” get the faux fur!
