I just got back from a sunny vacation in California and upon my return I realized one thing: Fall is officially here. It’s chilly and I find myself pulling out my warmer clothes and shoes. Although it is heartbreaking to say goodbye to summer (cue Summer Sadness from Lana Del Rey), Fall is my favorite season to shop for. The colors and styles are extremely appealing and there’s nothing like rich warm sweaters and beautiful earth tones. Other than boots, I would say shopping for Fall coats is one of my favorite aspects of the season. As said in previous posts, I absolutely love a good coat. It is one of the most important aspects of your wardrobe because unlike your other pieces of clothing, a coat is what someone sees first, and the most of. Choosing a coat should be a well thought out process, where you decide how would you want to be perceived by others around you. Do you want to look cute? Comfortable? Chic? Sporty? The options are endless. What is important is that you decide which coat suits you and your sense of style best.
New Girl is one of my favorite TV shows right now for a number of reasons. Whether it’s because of Jessica Day‘s (played by Zooey Deschanel) quirky personality, or Scmidt (played by Max Greenfield) and Nick Miller’s (played by Jake Johnson) hysterical stories, it has made my Tuesday nights my favorite TV night (sorry Thursdays). Jess is an optimistic, bubbly person who wants her personality to shine through her smile and most importantly, her wardrobe. I have no doubt I will have another post on Jessica’s actual outfits which consists of many adorable skirts and dresses, but for this week I wanted to focus on her coats. Since this is the season where I am thinking about being cozy and trying to look cute all at once, Jessica is the perfect inspiration for that! Her coats range from different colors and cuts but one thing is for sure, everyone can find something they like within her selection! So let’s take a look and see which one you prefer!
Jessica Day is no stranger to getting herself mixed up in tricky situations. Luckily for her, when her car broke down on this breezy Fall day she was sporting her cream coat. The color and weight of the jacet is ideal for those less chilly Fall days (and Spring).
Navy and red is a great color combination and this sophisticated, “first-lady” type of coat proves exactly why. It oozes sophistication and the antique looking big gold button sets off a vintage tone. I would buy this in a heartbeat.
Keeping it classic and conservative, Jess opted for her burgundy coat with black detailing and buttons for this outing. This coat seems warmer due to its length and ideal for any occasion.
Who said coats had to have a boring color? Here Jess is wearing one of her many vibrant coats. Without going over the top, this muted teal shows that a classic cut can be paired with a different color to avoid the typical black coat.
Not everyone would be able to pull off a pyjama with this eccentric looking jacket in a club (and frankly, neither did she), but noone can dispute the fact that she looked adorable. This light checkered jacket with a unique collar isn’t seen often but is feminine due to the way it falls and it’s 3/4 puffier sleeves.
The pattern of this very cozzy looking coat gives off the casual yet preppy vibe. The big collar makes for a great statement and I would easily see myself using a jacket like this for every day purposes.
We shall continue on Wednesday to look through Jessica Day’s coat choices and hope it doesn’t get any colder outside until then!
