I have had the same winter coat since 9th grade. It’s been a great coat, has kept me warm in the snowy Utah winters. I think though, it is time to retire the old girl. I figure since I don’t buy them very often, I can spend more on it, and make sure it’s a high quality coat.
L.L. Bean has great coats! I actually found 3 that I liked.
The Ultrawarm Jacket for $99. It’s insulated with premium down, and will keep you comfortable in 15 to -30 degree weather. (I will not be going anywhere colder than that!)
The hood is removable.
The Goose Down Jacket $69. I think this is the best value for your money. This is also filled with goose down for premium warmth, it’s slightly fitted with elastic cuffs for extra warmth. This one got 5 star reviews!!
The Ultralight 850 Down Jacket $149. This one has a premium 850 down insulation, which is lighter than the 650 insulations- but just as warm. Water and tear resistant.
The Double Breasted Wool Coat by Victoria’s Secret for $119.
This classy and sexy pea coat by VS is great for going out. Comes in white black or charcoal. The knit collar adds some flare!
The Wool Ruffle Coat by VS $149 The ruffle adds some femininity to your everyday pea coat. Also comes in black.
Ok ok, so it was hard to find great coats besides VS and LLBean, so don’t judge. This one is $99. It’s a slim fit with back pleats and wool with polyester lining.
I thought I’d show you my top three picks for snow boots too. #1. The Emu Australia. They’re great to wear as slippers or outside, but not when it’s snowing or they’ll get all nasty shmasty. $109 at Endless.com
These are cute too…. also by Emu, the “Hip Boot”. $55-$85 on Amazon.
Next, the Sorel. GREAT snow boots, for making snowmen, shoveling the driveway, or going to get the mail. Easy to slip on, great traction and a thick lining for warmth. On sale form $90- $94 on Amazon.
Last, but not least are the Timberland Fauna Lace Boots. Amazon, $60-$132. I like these boots, because they are practical and stylish. They are lined with fleece and great for the great outdoors!
