Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Sadly, I think it’s gotten a little too cold to continue sporting my statement outdoor coat. I’ll be back to my full blown snowsuit now, but statement blazers are still good options! The designer clearance rack at Nordstrom Rack is where it’s at if you are looking for designer pieces at some of the lowest possible prices. I generally find that some of the “odd pieces” are left on the clearance rack because they just look odd on the hanger. This coat looked a little odd on the hanger, but looks really interesting on! So, I always recommend trying things on so you can get a real sense of pieces. 

2) As I’ve been saying for the last few posts, this is a great time to find any winter pieces you’ve had on your list. The sales at places like Loft, Ann Taylor, Gap, and Banana Republic are great sales; however, some winter items are starting to disappear, so it’s really time to grab the last of winter accessories and coats for next year! 

Anyone else have any places they like to find statement blazers? Or how they style them? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! Happy mid-week!

  1. This entire look is a statement! I am seriously lacking in the fancy coat department. It’s hard work catching up with this one being originally from Oklahoma there wasn’t a need for a heavy coat for long periods of time. GOTTA STEP MY GAME UP! Any local coat shopping recommendations?

    • I JUST got mine- I normally wear my huge down coat for six months straight, but it’s nice to have some variety! And yes! I was surprised that the coats at Ann Taylor (regular, not Loft) were actually really stylish this year- and the sale is going on right now, so the price is right 🙂 I also like the coat selection at Nordstrom Rack. They have a lot of traditional down coats, but they have some great statement coats too. Happy hunting!! Post it if you find one :)!!
