Button Up — It’s Coat Season in Syracuse!

Button Up — It’s Coat Season in Syracuse!

Coats, Jackets, Parkas – Oh my! Well folks, it’s officially coat season here in Syracuse. Choosing a coat for the day can be a tough decision – especially when there are so many cute ones to choose from! Whether it’s fur, Sherpa or puffer, this season is full of every type of jacket you can imagine.

Let’s go through a few to keep you warm and cozy!

The teddy coat

The teddy coat is the coat to have this season. Snug as a bug in a rug – these shearling coats not only come in an array of colors and shades but are so fuzzy and warm. If you’re running from the bus to class or trekking uphill on campus, they block the wind and you can very easily snuggle up in class. It’s like a hug that never ends.

Animal print

Animal Print! If you’re feeling spicy or sassy, why not own it? Embrace your inner cheetah girl and grab your leopard print coat you’ve been hiding in your closet since 2002…because it’s back! Leopard and other animal prints have been on every fashion report since last spring. Get ready to be fierce and work the concrete jungle.

Puffer coats

Puffer coats have never really been out of style, but new pastel colors and bright neon versions of the feathered bubble coats have hit the runway recently, giving the old classic style a new modern twist. Long or short, big puffer or lightweight – you can get one at any boutique or store these days – just make sure to not get gypped! There are some dupes on the racks that seem to not protect the wearer.

Straight coats

Straight coats have popped up everywhere in Europe for years now and have finally made their way to the states. These are not only beneficial for dressy days in the office, but they can also keep your knees warm against the harsh winds of the winter months. These jackets are simple, yet elegant, and match almost everything!

Lastly – the timeless trend since Danny and Sandy – leather. Real or fake, leather has been around for years and isn’t going away! Completely diverse, they come with faux fur inside, shearling, or simply nylon. The leather jacket has stepped it up even making it’s way to trench coat form.

Regardless of the coat you choose, protect yourself against the cold in the winter months. Don’t forget to bundle up, grab your go-to accessory (blanket scarves approved), and grab your coffee because winter is coming…
