Up until this week, I really hadn't taken my winter coats out of the closet. With the snow this week on the East Coast (we're still buried in DC!), I have a feeling the winter season is just starting. I think coats are such a great investment because the same styles come back year after year and it takes a few years to wear them out.
This season, I've been a sucker for fur collar coats like this and this and recently decided that I need a shawl collar coat like this one. The best part about all of the ones above is that they're all under $200. This is the best time of year to buy a new coat since we're in the middle of the season and since the weather has been so mild, many stores have started their sales early!
