The hunt for the perfect winter coat can be an arduous and painful search. It's a big fat long-term commitment. You're looking for the one that can offer you warmth, comfort and reliability. The one that is strong and sturdy enough to protect you from stormy weather. The one that gives you butterflies in your belleh and makes you dance in the mirror alone because you love it so much. The one that's crazy good looking. The one that makes you feel like the most beautiful woman... Not so different from the search for the perfect man, eh?

Speaking of a man (not to be confused with amen), this season all I want is an oversized man coat (seriously, I even made a Pinterest board dedicated to it). Preferably of the Stella McCartney variety. Preferably worn with a perfectly messy short layered haircut...

All coats on Zara.com. (The pin stripe navy one is perfect.)

So what do you say?
