Hope everyone's having a great Fall so far! Temps have been dropping gradually in Boston and it's already chilly enough to warrant wearing a coat. I love red in general but really love it when it comes to outerwear because it stands out among the mass of black coats most people tend to wear. I also find that bright colors genuinely cheer me up and on a dark winter morning, a warm and stylish red coat really helps with the mood!

This coat is one of my favorites of the season not only for it's standout color but also the classic trench style and it's warmth. One of the few I've found where it's form fitted, stylish and really warm all at the same time. It's also currently on sale for 25% with code WARMSTYLE so this is a good time to grab any number of winter things from J.Crew. I've linked a few other things from this sale as well so check them below!


I ordered the size OP which fits very snugly across the shoulders and wouldn't allow for thick layers underneath. This is totally fine for me because I don't tend to wear a lot of bulky layers but if you want to layer over a really chunky knit you might want to size up. The quality of the material and finish are excellent, which hopefully you can see from the pics. I love the black buttons (gold would have been nice too!) and the coat is of course fully lined. One fit detail of this coat I wanted to call out is that the waist is a little on the large side for me. Not that big of an issue because you can belt it but if you have a very small waist you might find that there's a little too much material -  just something to take a look at once you buy or have a chance to try on.


I like the cute details like the little button in the back near the coat tails! If you're looking for a casual, warm coat for winter that looks festive I think this is a good way to go. I did a simple layer under the coat - just a white button down, which I love for any occasion. And a plaid scarf tucked under. It was a little too cold that day to unbutton the coat and take pics of the base layers - sorry!

As always, thanks for reading and hope you stop by next week to check out some of my own buys from J.Crew and J.Crew Factory (which also has an awesome promo running), as well as from H&M. I stopped by there today and they have so many cute things for work and for the holidays that I almost bought except that the line to buy was enormous. So I high-tailed it home to order online...thank you Internet!

Have a great weekend! xo
