Short coats for this season are a wonderful study in volume and textures. Long draping arms, waist defining crop-tops, and collars of every shape and size give you tons of choices. With shorter coats, it’s always important to keep your silhouette in mind – too much volume up top can conjure a Violet Beauregarde vibe, so keep an eye on where the coat ends on your body and allow for your outfit underneath to complement, not compete (i.e. – big volume on top needs streamlined below, while form-fitting appreciates a little volume down below).

The most popular length when it comes to coats & jackets, the mid-length is usually used as a jack-of-all-trades. A go-to for work, running quick errands, and often our evening out companion. With its ideal length usually between top of the knee to mid-thigh it works with pants and skirts of most shapes and sizes. Being such a utilitarian, we tend to gravitate towards classic silhouettes, and of course…pockets!

When there’s more than a little nip in the air, or for when the occasion calls for something a bit more formal, these long-length ladies are the ones we pull from the closet. They also generally tend to be the priciest of our purchases when it comes to coats. A nice plus to these animal friendly options? Unlike their full fur/leather counterparts which can easily run in the five-figures, our lovelies manage to look good without costing as much.
