If you want something retro looking, there's the Deliver Coat at French Connection. This 50's style coat is very loose fitting with two side pockets, a concealed button placket at the front, ribbed collar, and a single button at the neck. It's made of a wool and acrylic mix.

Nanette Lepore makes the most elegant pieces! If you are interested in a simple black coat, you should really consider her Black Tie Jacket. It has a double breasted button front, pleating throughout, hidden pockets at the side seams, a rounded collar at the low neck, long sleeves, and is fully lined.
Our loyal readers have probably noticed that we don't show animal prints here at Shirt Snob. Honestly, we don't really like them. We are going to today though, possibly for the first time because the print on the Belted Car Coat by Milly is gorgeous and not too animally for us. It has oversized black buttons, a removable belt, and two front pockets. It's also 100% wool and is lined.
Next up is another rebe find. The Maryanne Coat has a fold over collar, a single button at the empire waist, long sleeves, and comes down to mid-thigh. It's also made out of recycled cotton fiber and is available in artichoke, black, iris, mahogany, persimmon, and tangerine.

White is not just for summer anymore, which is good for us because we adore the Frayed Pocket Coat by Miss Davenporte. This canvas coat has a fold over collar, tie at the waist, five snap closures at the front, snap flap pockets with frayed edges at the hips, storm flap and inverted pleat at the back, long sleeves, and a silk print lining.
Even though fall has passed us by, we still can't get enough of fall colors. The Tweed Jacket by Jovovich-Hawk is the perfect rust color for us! This tweed jacket has an extra wide collar, single jeweled button and loop closure at the neck, hidden hook and eye closure at the front, a detachable belt with a jewel embellished snap closure, jeweled button detailing at the cuffs, long sleeves, and it is 100% wool.
Here's an interesting take on your average black coat. The Ikat Coat by Burning Torch is a black fabric with dashed ecru lines throughout. It has a tailored shape, lining, black rhinestone buttons, front pockets, and seaming and raw edging details. It's made from a cotton and virgin wool blend.

Because Christmas to us really signifies winter and the cold weather settling in, we are going to look at coats this week. First up is the Iris Coat at rebe. This long coat is made out of 100% cotton recycled fiber. It has a shawl collar, empire waistline, and single button at the waist, and long sleeves. It's available in two colors, olive and brown.
Not into long coats? Then the Shrunken Pebbled Wool Jacket by Alexander Wang is for you. This wool jacket has contrasting black wool trim at the hems, two front pockets with flaps, and 3/4 length sleeves. We love the pebbled look!

Looking for a smart and elegant coat? The Draped Collar Jacket by Chulo Pony is definitely an option. It has black leather removable straps at the waist and sleeves, an asymmetrical crossover front, large faux horn button, and front pockets. It's a neat mix of military and femininity that we want more of!
