Camel coats might make you warm, but they’ll leave your wallet cold. We are in love with this J. Crew Wool-Cashmere Icon Trench Coat ($325), but not with its price tag. Although it’s made of luxurious Italian cashmere and gives off a flattering shape with the belt (instead of looking fat in a puffy coat), this fully-lined durable coat, is the worth the same as an entirely new set of winter accessories. So we ask, what would you rather have?
This lush, lasts-for-years J. Crew Wool-Cashmere Icon Trench Coat ($325)
No winter is complete without a pair of warm leather gloves, so why not try these Saks Fifth Avenue Fur Line Leather Gloves ($85)? There’s even ventilation for your palms because that fur can get hot (yuck – sweaty palms).
Keep your ears as warm as your hands with these Diane Von Furstenberg Lothbury Earmuffs ($98). The soft fur will feel like heaven on your ears, just remember to take them off when your get inside. If earmuffs aren’t your style, try this Cheap Monday Alyssa Hat ($15).
Tie one of these Love Quotes Cashmere Scarves ($88) around your neck when the weather calls for it. Available in one of six colors, these heavy scarves are in the closets of Lauren Conrad, Nicole Ritchie, Rachel Bilson, Kristin Cavallari and more.
Use your leftover dollars and go grab that latte you’ve been craving.
