WANTED: THE CAPE COAT


Yesterday was the first truly chilly day in New York and it had me considering my cold weather outerwear options. This is my first full fall/winter in New York and, while I grew up in Connecticut and went to school in Pennsylvania, I totally don't feel prepared for the coming season. I spend so much more time outside here! I have a classic camel coat and a puffer coat but I think my next winter purchases will be this navy option (inspired by Amy!) and a cape coat like the above. Below are a few of my favorites... Which one would you choose?

I bought a cape coat from Madewell a few years ago and it's always in constant rotation during the winter months! I actually prefer it over a traditional coat because I can fit more layers under it when it's really freezing outside! :) {Here's mine: http://instagram.com/p/U_41SyjXFo/}

They're so adorable and I may say that they look a bit British (and proper). Two little slits for the hands makes me giggle, but I still want them!

Your Friend, Jess

Love the idea of a navy cape coat! I purchased the JCrew Cocoon Coat last winter and I love it!

I love the way cape coats look but I always worry my arms will be cold during those cold winter days!

I feel like I would be freezing in a cape. Walking around the city with my arms exposed isn't appealing at all. I don't think I can pull off the Olivia Pope elbow length gloves. I learned after my first winter in Manhattan that you just forget fashion and wear your North Face down parka for at least 2 months of winter.
