The leaves are crunching under our feet, the days are getting shorter and the sandals have been put away. Fall has indeed arrived! It’s time to take our coat out of the closet to protect ourselves against the cold that is slowly but surely approaching. It is no longer to your liking? Before you start shopping, read our post on 5 things to consider when buying a fall coat:

Your lifestyle

The first step before shopping for your coat is to determine how you will use it, depending on your travels. For example, if you go directly from a heated car to the comfort of your office, your need for insulation will not be the same as for someone who has to walk home from work. Often in the subway? A packable jacket is a good solution. Make a list of your daily activities and you will be able to buy the right coat to stay warm.

Your budget

Knowing there’s a wide variety of coats available, it’s easy to get lost and fall in love with a style out of your budget. Do your math and determine the maximum price for your purchase. Combined with the other features to keep in mind, you can then get your hands on the ideal coat that will meet your needs.

The colour


It may seem trivial, but the color is important in your choice. Opting for a color that you more or less like will prevent you from fully enjoying your purchase. The idea is to not only choose a shade that suits you well but above all that you like. Your fall coat should become a key piece in your wardrobe that you can reuse for a long time and pair with most of the clothes you already own. Of course, black is timeless. But you can also vary with neutral grays or downright flashy shades!

The fabric

There are all kinds of coats on the market. From leather to synthetic to wool, you will find the fabric you like. However, it is important to know the advantages and disadvantages of each material. You will thus be able to make an informed choice for your daily life by knowing which one is perfect to stick to your routine. Are you travelling by bike? Opt for a fabric that breathes, with a minimum of elasticity. Are you clumsy by nature? Know that coffee spills wipe away quickly and easily from leather!

The style

After all the points listed above, it is now necessary to find your style. You must feel as good in your coat as in a comforter. May it become like a second skin. Some cuts are more advantageous than others depending on the physiognomy, but the important thing is the style suits the image you want to put forward. For example, a long jacket goes perfectly with a professional look, while a lined windbreaker will give you a young and urban look.
