Last year, it was all about the robe coat, and this year, its younger cousin, the blanket coat, has taken over. It’s more than taken over, really. It’s pretty much the only coat you’ll see on the fashion set this season. While the robe coat is elegant and feminine, it def has more of a forty something uptown boss lady vibe tbh. I love the look, but I feel like I have some time before I go that route. Its younger cousin, the blanket coat, has a downtown chic vibe that doesn’t feel like it pre-dates me. The poncho-jacket hybrid is cozy and chic, and makes bundling up for winter so much more bearable.
