Find Your New Winter Coat Before Spring has Sprung

By  March 04, 2013

With spring right around the corner, it may seem counter-intuitive to want to shop for a winter coat. If you’re anything like me, you’re itching for spring temps and ample sunshine.

If I asked you to tell me the most exciting item in your closet, it probably wouldn’t be your coat. The most useful, though? That’s another story. Spending your hard-earned cash on functional threads is easy to justify – especially because now is the time you’ll find so many great styles at a discounted rate.

I recently picked up this orange Kensie coat at Macy’s and have been wearing it non-stop ever since. A colorful coat is a great way to elevate an otherwise basic cold-weather ensemble.

My picks for perusing? There are plenty of practical and stylish options at Macy’s and J.Crew – all of which are on sale right now.
