The weather can change at the drop of a hat here. Sometimes it feels like we skip fall altogether and go right from summer to winter with about a week of fall to enjoy. My closet is full of hoodies, cardigans and lots of coats.

My favorites include: a jean jacket, a pea coat and a trench coat. I know the thought of a jean jacket seems a little retro, but I found a really unique cut a few years back with brass buttons and dark rinse that make the jacket look a little more quality. Believe it or not, I found that gem on the Old Navy sales rack and I haven’t seen it on other person. Maybe no one else liked the style or maybe I found a diamond in the ruff.

Pea coats might also seem a little out of date. However, a pea coat is one that looks good on everyone. I used to buy my coats way too big but learned that by doing so it a) wasn’t keeping my any warmer and b) was making me look fat! Try on your coats before purchasing to make sure they fit in the arms and to confirm that they will fit over the many layers you might have underneath. I have a beautiful red pea coat that I’ve had for over five years and it still looks great.

Did Burberry make the trench coat a must have for women everywhere? Did you know that you can actually buy a Burberry knock-off trench and no one will be the wiser (or care) if it’s the real deal or not. The Burberry plaid looks chic and classic and gives some added color to your coat. But, if that particular design isn’t your thing, plenty of trench coats have their own special flair whether it is the belt, a few extra buttons, the print or the fabric.

You don’t have to stick with a solid color. Most jackets and coats typically stay pretty muted in patterns and colors. This is so they’re wearable all the time and not just for special occasions because special occasion jackets are a whole other story (and article).
