|J. Crew Lady Day Coat with Gold Buttons|
1. I have lost count of the number of Lady Day Coats in my closet, but couldn’t resist this new version with gold buttons (and a fun stripe-lined collar). This is a J. Crew staple—warm enough for Northeastern winters—with an enduring aesthetic. The fit is tailored (and runs snugly across the chest); if you plan to wear multiple layers with this coat, consider ordering a size up. This style is only available in regular length, and (for those my size) size 000 fits me well. This coat, along with other outerwear styles, is 25% off today with code BESTDRESSED.
