Color

When we started working with one of our real estate clients a few years ago, she told us that she always would wear colorful and fun outerwear to work. Since she wasn’t usually taking off her coat when she was showing houses, the only part of her outfit that her clients were seeing was the impactful, memorable coat. We could not have agreed with her more! In fact, we just got her the J.Crew boiled wool coat for a great price for this season. Another client recently purchased the magenta A.L.C. coat from Hu’s Wear in Georgetown, which looked beautiful with her blonde hair. For the most bang for your buck, check out the Uniqlo green double face coat, which we bought for a client as a super chic weekend coat.

Puffers

This year, puffer jackets are taking on a “more is more” trend. Look for down jackets in textures such as faux leather or velvet, in bright colors and metallics, and in sleek, polished styles. This Moncler coat is a big ticket item, we know. However, the matte texture and shiny gunmetal zipper make it the most sophisticated puffer coat we’ve ever seen. If there’s a snowstorm and you have the most important meeting of your life, you could actually wear this Moncler coat. The Madewell Starry Night puffer coat will fulfill all of  your inner little girl dreams and the Nanushka faux leather puffer is made out of the same dreamy vegan leather as our favorite faux leather dress.

Embellishment

The embellishment and embroidery trend is still going strong, which is great considering I’ve now added sequin patches to two of my favorite winter coats. See my black hamsa on the DIY Gucci blog and love potion on Instagram. If you want to DIY your own coat, check out Etsy or M&J Trimming. The Neiman Marcus cashmere vest has been a hit with two different clients with two completely different styles.
