Although I’ll always have a place in my heart for fast fashion, I also believe in making key investment purchases that will last a lifetime. One of those items worth investing in for me is a ravishing winter coat especially if you live in a subzero temperature zone like NYC in the winter. It’s a staple for keeping warm and looking stylish. Like shoes and handbags, coat prices can get steep, so you need shop carefully and do some research to find one that you’ll love beyond the next few years. I thought I’d share my top tips for how to buy an investment coat since now would be the perfect time to make the jump.

Everyone wants value and quality for the money they spend. To ensure you achieve that, take your time. If you’re not sure where to start on to how buy an investment coat, read on for my tips below.

Set a price point

An "investment" can mean different things for different people depending on income level and what you deem affordable. Your first step is deciding which price point you're willing to invest. Whether that's $300 or $3000, having a price point will give you a starting point for where to look and brands to consider.

Pick a classy color

While you may be inclined to stick to black, gray or navy, don't shy away from colors that do stand the test of time like camel, nude, or red. The most important thing is to be honest with yourself on whether or not you can live with the color 24/7.

Know your classic silhouettes

If you really don’t know how to buy an investment coat, consider your silhouettes. Pieces like trench coats, knee-length top coats, robes and wraps (like the one I’m wearing), or collarless lady-like ones will never go out of style. Pick one you know you’ll never get tired of.

Shop practically

Think about where you live, how often you’ll wear your coat, and what you’ll wear it with. In NYC, you never want to wear a coat that’s too fitted because more often than not, you’ll be piling on layers underneath it. Plus, coats tend to look better when slightly looser. If you’re constantly on the go and commuting by foot, an ankle-sweeping length might not be practical either because it can get pretty gross on the bottom. And finally, shop around. A lot. (Hint hint: Wait for the end-of-season sales! Subscribe here and I’ll let you know when!) This will ensure you’re getting the best deal when spending a huge chunk of money, so take as long as you need before making the jump.

Buy two if you can afford it

In all honesty, two coats is better than one. You can have one for your weekend wear and another for for going out. If it takes two years to acquire two, then let it be. You’ll never regret having more than one timeless investment coat.

Hope that helps, and good luck!
