It’s almost time to bring out the heavy toppers for a season that I have a love/hate relationship with, winter. I love to dress in layers but hate being cold and wet, wandering around the streets of New York. Every year around this time I gather inspiration for the perfect winter coat, swearing that this year I will invest in a new one. As most New Yorkers, the majority of my wardrobe is black, so with a number of black coats already in my closet, I have declared navy blue as the coat color of the season.
Slightly less severe than black, this inky blue hue can pull any look together with an air of ease. I love the classic nostalgic feeling navy blue has on my favorite coat shapes of the season.
The hooded parka is just the right amount of function and fashion making for a perfect city coat at any price, from the Étoile Isabel Marant version with real fur trim or the more than affordable Zara style.
