*In this new late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Kenzie requested a few picks for cute-yet-practical outerwear, so here we go:
Calvin Klein Walker Packable Down Jacket – was $200, now $100
To me, the best bet for winter outerwear is a shaped down jacket. This one isn’t quite as cinched-at-the-waist as some, but that actually means it’s more likely to flatter a larger range of body types. It’s a lightweight down fill with clean chevron quilting. Available in this steely gray, and also black and winter white. Although it appears to hit above the knee on the fit model, user reviews make me think it’ll be long on petite frames and about knee-length for anyone in the 5’6″ range.
J.Crew Double-cloth Metro Coat – was $298-$319, now $199-$219
Many coats are selling out quickly right now, so I struggled to find options with lots of size ranges left. But not only is J.Crew the standard for well-made, beautifully-styled wool coats, but this particular coat is available in petite, tall, with and without Thinsulate lining, and from size 00 through 16. It comes in this flame orange as well as cobalt, kelly, black, eggplant, and several other shades. A great option if down is too warm for your climate, and a classic style that can be dressed up or down.
Jessie G. Belted Puffer coat with Removable Hooded Vest – was $299, now $49.99
Reasons to be very excited about this coat include: It is currently 83% off retail. It belts nice and high on the waist, which works for several body types. It comes in black and brown, size S through XL. The hood is removable, AND it’s a multi-layer coat that includes a collared vest which can be removed and worn alone. This is a polyester fill coat, so not ideal for truly brutal winter weather, but the layers will help: Layers trap warmth, so wearing the vest and coat together will keep a gal fairly toasty. (Also a vegan option, and great for anyone allergic to down and other natural materials.)
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for cute-yet-practical outerwear:
- Land’s End – My down coat hails from this shop and although that style is no longer available, they have some great picks. And, actually, many ARE on sale!
- Nordstrom – Loads of shaped down and stylish wool coats at this standby retailer.
- Zappos – They may be known for shoes, but this online warehouse has an amazing selection of outerwear, too.
