On the Hunt For a Winter Coat

I’ve just started my hunt for a winter coat and even though I’ve lived in the Northeast for seven years I’m pretty unexperienced in this area. Let’s just say in the past I generally have ran from my car to a warm building shivering in a light jacket. Unfortunately, attempting to wear a light jacket all winter isn’t going to work well in the city. I have a 15 minute walk to classes every morning and I don’t plan on shivering the whole way there everyday. 

However, I don’t want to buy a coat that I will hate wearing because it looks like a puffy ski jacket. I’ve been scrolling through my pinterest feed for inspiration, because really what better way is there to waste time and while also being productive. I think I’ve decided on a style similar to a classic peacoat instead of a parka or military style. I was originally thinking a neutral navy or black but shades of red have really been catching me eye. A deep maroon would go with my entire winter wardrobe perfectly! 

What is your ideal winter coat? I would love suggestions since I’m still pretty lost in this whole search.

p.s. Sorry for the lack of outfit posts recently. My SD card has mysteriously disappeared into my room somewhere. I’m hoping to get a new one this weekend.
