Even though the weather is still quite warm but it’s only a matter of time until Fall materializes. For years, I’ve been yearning for a double-faced robe style coat and this season seems to be the right time to take the plunge.
I love the idea of trading out the standard issue belt with something more statement making. I initially had my eye on the Bottega Veneta horse bit belt. I later realized that it is a take on the original Tiffany Elsa Peretti Equestrian belt that’s $200 less and made of sterling silver. I also love the long coat paired with the Loewe Obi belt or a bold Alaia option.
Starting with the coat, I found that Italist has a great assortment from Max Mara that’s super discounted. Just for example the tremendously popular Max Mara Teddy coat is $3600 at Saks and almost sold out. Here it is Italist in black for $534, here is grey for the same price. Here is a Weekender teddy version in brown for $899.
My personal obsession is more focused on a sleek long coat. I prefer one with a small lapel and without a hood. Here is a simple beige style for $704. A similar version is $2950 at Saks. Here is a shorter version in black for $534 and this version with a more Peterpan style collar for the same price. I’ve pulled images of other great value options below. Prices this discounted pay for the statement belt.
