Save vs. Splurge: Winter Outerwear

Outerwear is one of my weaknesses, for sure, but investing in a quality coat is well worth the money. This is the item of clothing you’ll likely be wearing the most often, so choosing one that will last is most important. I have linked some “saves” and “splurges” below, all of which fall into one of the following three categories:

The Classics
For those of you who work in a formal business setting, investing in a classic and conservative dress coat is ideal.

The Warmest
For students or those who have a commute that involves a great deal of walking outside, you’re main concern is most likely warmth.

The Statements
For those with an eye for something just a little bit more fun.
