Believe it or not autumn is only a short stint away, temperatures are decreasing and the sun is hiding a little earlier these days. Although the thought of snowstorms, zero degree temperatures and icy conditions are not what we look forward to, why not focus on the brighter side and start obsessing over your fall wardrobe! Layering, OTK boots, cashmere sweaters, booties, leggings shall I go on? However, no wardrobe is complete without a side closet full of coats. So now that we are on the same cheery page, let’s talk about those coats, shall we. Here are 6 coats we think you’re going to “fall” for (pun intended).
