Ok so I HATE being cold. Like HATE. I’ll take 30 degrees over 10 degrees any day BUT if it can’t be warm, glorious summer all year round and the temperature has to drop, at least there a ton of cute jackets out there to keep me warm.
Living in Vancouver, we all know that this is not a one jacket and done kind of place. Fall in Vancouver means there is a serious need for lots of different types of coats. We need one that is light enough to wear on those warm-yet-crisp sunny days, one for those stupidly cold days and one for those in-between days. We also need casual options and dressier options. So, with all of that in mind, here are some of our ‘Girl in Focus’ Jamie Dunlop Khau’s favourite Fall coats, all available at Coquitlam Centre.
Real or faux, everyone needs a good leather jacket in their closet. Wear over dresses with boots, with jeans and sweaters or with t-shirts and leggings.
Faux Leather Jacket available at H&M $59.99*; ASKYA Sweatshirt Dress available at Hudson's Bay $39.99*; Crossbody Bag available at H&M $24.99*; People Sneakers available at Below the Belt $90*.
