I want to get a dressier jacket, that has some length in some sort of knit, and I've been searching. I don't want to spend too much because I'm still losing weight, so it probably won't fit next year.

I found these at Revolve, but they're $400 and up. Any website suggestions or coats you've seen like these?

I got a cute one @ Macy's last year, the brand was American Rag, similar style to the second picture you posted, I'm sure they would have something similar this year.

I got a really cute plaid pea coat from AE last year, when I looked on the site recently, they have a couple different styles, one belted, one not....but solid colors, no plaids.

Have you tried one of the discount stores? I've found some nice peacoats at Winners before.

PS. I know you said website, but it'd be good if you could try it on in person, right? :)

Victoria's Secret online and in the catalog have some cute ones right now. I really have more than enough coats, but I'm dying for one particular one they have right now.

Oh, and if you do buy from there, take note that they run BIG.

Stephanie, I think you are better off avoiding double-breasted jackets. A single breasted jacket will give you a cleaner silhouette.

I do not like either of those jackets for you.

Steph, since we are the same size, I have to agree with Rob, I also avoid double breasted jackets. I tend to go for the longer jackets, they look dressier and make you look taller :magwink

I guess I wasn't really thinking in terms of wanting double breasted...I dunno, usually I just wear hoodies so I'm lost when trying to find an actual jacket.

But I did look at the nordies website, and I like this tweed one...I might go see if they have it in stores.

Agree. Single-breasted would flatter you more.

The cut of this one would look great on you :thumbsup

I like the single breasted one but I would personally look for a shorter cut than that one because the longer your coat is, the shorter you look. It's time for coats again, yay, I love fall/winter!
