WOW. The first day of fall in Chicago was certainly autumnal! The temps dropped and all of a sudden, we were in coats and jackets—Noodle included. Today J.Crew outerwear is marked down significantly, with my favorites all between 25 and 50 percent off.
Here’s what to buy and why:
The warmest wool coat I’ve ever owned! (And the only one I can get away with wearing in Chicago in the dead of winter.) It traps heat, and it now has side pockets, which means I need the newer version, haha. Runs big. Size down.
This is my “dress coat.” Not as warm as the above cocoon, but toastiest dress coat out there, for sure. I wear it to events/on date nights. (I have it in both black and white.) This coat definitely runs on the smaller side, particularly in the shoulders. I would recommend going up one size, especially if you want to wear sweaters underneath.
This is a MUST-BUY: the famous cocoon coat in a quilted style that REALLY packs a punch in terms of warmth. It’s great for those of us who prefer to wear a puffer at all times throughout fall/early winter/late spring but don’t want to look insane. Also for gals who live in warmer climates! Runs BIG. Go down one size. Love the navy + green, too!
So chic! This is almost always in my tote back because it folds up so nicely and doesn’t weigh anything! Looks so cute with a button-down or a lightweight sweater underneath. And those tortoise buttons! (Also runs big. Go down one size.)
