There are staples that everyone should have in their closet – underwear that you enjoy wearing, a good bra, a pair of jeans that never quits, and a coat that last for years and years to come, all while never going out of style. That’s where a structured wool coat in a neutral color comes in handy. Sure, a pop of color on a coat in fun AF, I mean who doesn’t love a bright yellow on a cloudy day? But that color may come back to bite you in the ass when yellow is considered a devil worshipping color someday. How that may happen, I’m not sure. But it could. So having a coat in a neutral color that you can year this year or in year 2030 will not only save you money longterm, but it will keep you feeling stylish every single year.
When looking for a structured wool coat, there are a few things to consider –
- Does it have room for a sweater underneath while still fitted enough to give you some shape?
- Does it have pockets? Jackets without pockets should not be trusted.
- Do you want a hood with your structured coat? Not a must, but it can be helpful.
- Does it fit your longterm budget?
There are some things that don’t need to cost much money – a casual t-shirt, a flowy summer dress, and you can even find great jeans nowadays for cheap. But when it comes to a coat…spend a little more money. Remember that a structured wool coat was created to keep you warm and cozy when it’s crap outside, so you want to make sure it’s a good one. But also remember that a wool coat is going to be a classic that never really goes out of style. Which means you will wear it…
