Ladies winter coats

I've been meaning to pick up another winter coat, but haven't found the perfect one yet. It's difficult to find something both warm and fashionable. =/ What coats have you ladies bought this winter and/or is there something particular you have your eye on? Pics = <3!

i just got one from h&m this year and i like it a lot. it's not warm, warm, but i can always layer on those super cold days. i'll try to take a picture for you later.. too bad their site kinda sucks or i'd find one there. my friend recently got one from lululemon- it's long, had a hood and a fleece lining, and i also think it's waterproof. plus, it looks nice, too.
i'm pretty sure her's this one, but in grey-

i'm pretty sure the gap and old navy have warm, fashionable winter coats, too. it also depends on your budget too.

I've been to H&M, Gap and ON, but haven't found anything I like yet. Normally, I'd expect the Gap to have something worth buying, but for some reason, none of their outwear has really appealed to me this year. I like something fitted, but many of the coats I've found recently have just hung on me. =/ Oh, well, once exams end I'll be able to really hit the stores. =D

When I was younger, I used to go for fashionable way over warmth. Now, I must have warmth - I don't care how puffy or unfashionable it is - and to me, this usually means down.

Here are some coats that are down-filled, and not completely dumpy-looking imo. Mendocino carries some Soia & Kyo coats. Urban Outfitters carries the brand, but I'm not sure if they also carry the coats in-store.

Soia & Kyo Carolina
Soia & Kyo Maribel
Soia & Kyo Maribel 2
Soia & Kyo Lory
Soia & Kyo Thaly

I'm looking for a new jacket that's warm and nice enough to wear to work type of jacket too. My current pea coat is a few years old and needs to be upgraded. But it's a really warm pea coat and for some reason this year's pea coats are super thin and not really what I'm looking for too. I'll take a look at the jackets you suggested caliente. Thanks OP for starting this thread :)

Seconding the Soia & Kyo rec.
I own a few of their pieces from a couple of seasons ago. Their coats will definitely keep you warm. And if you have a bigger budget, then try Mackage. Same company.

I got mine at revolveclothing.com - they recently had a 30% off coupon. They ship free (even to Canada, I believe), but you might have to pay duties/taxes. They ship USPS, so there are no crazy brockerage fess, at least. I live in the states now and don't have to deal with all that BS anymore!

Setell, I bought my down jacket at Aritzia and 3 years later it's still in great shape and I still wear it. Might be worth checking out :)

Agreed with the Soia and Kyo reccs and also Mackage. I also recommend Revolve Clothing online if you don't have a ocal retailer... the selection is great and shipping is free to Canada, although you will have to pay return shipping if you're not happy.

I also like Banana Republic and J Crew coats as well.

Since Soia & Kyo is a Canadian brand (I'm assuming their things are made in Canada), does that mean I won't be charged duties if I buy from Revolve?

I'm not sure - maybe someone can answer that, but right now they're having 25% off sale on everything (there's some brand restrictions though, so it's a perfect time to buy :) code: NOTCOTLOVESREVOLVE

I've shopped at Revolve many times over the past few years. And never was I charged extra for customs.

Now would be a good time to buy from them. They just marked down lots of inventory, including Soia & Kyo and Mackage coats.

I just bought this S&K coat that was half price plus, with the coupon code drucillica posted, I paid $124!

How do you ladies buy coats online? I find that I really need to try on the coats to see how they fit. I was at Bleu Marine & Co. today at Eaton Centre and they have a pretty good selection of Soia&Kyo coats. I tried some on and they fit quite well. Quite a few people came in and asked for these coats too. Looks like they're getting popular.
