So I’m sure your feed is bursting at the seams with holiday gift guides right now, but I’m going to play the selfish card instead. Sure, Black Friday is a great time to knock out your holiday shopping list, but it’s an even better time to buy yourself a good winter coat.

Besides shopping for friends and family during the weekend, I always keep an eye out on a new investment in the wardrobe. I’m talking about the items that are out of my budget at full-price, but come just within reach during the heavily discounted holidays. That’s when I got the J.Crew Cocoon coat last year and the J.Crew Chateau parka the year before that – coats that I know I’ll be using year after year and also happen to be on sale at 30% off!

The week of Thanksgiving and Black Friday is really the best time to buy a winter coat. Discounts are steep (30-50% off in some stores) and most styles are still in stock since not everyone is in the mindset of breaking out their winter gear just yet. Just watch – as the temps start to drop, so will the sizes available in that coat you’ve been eying. Now is the time to strike!

I’ve been leaning towards neutral outerwear lately, but how gorgeous is this double breasted coat in robin’s egg blue or this belted trench coat in bubblegum pink? I’m on the fence between a pop of color or another timeless piece like this zippered navy coat, but I have a feeling that either way, I’ll be coming home with a pretty new winter coat by the end of the week. Cold  temps, I’m ready for ya!

      I might be way off, but I think they might be doing 40% off this weekend? I saw an email for NYC customers to come in to stores for a sneak peek of Black Friday last weekend and they were offering 40%! Guess we’ll find out. 🙂
