Who doesn’t love a winning statement coat?
If you’re looking for a brilliant place to scoop up your own at a fraction of the price of retail consider shopping thrift or consignment. The environment and your pocketbook will thank you.
Here are some of the fantastic statement coats I’ve thrifted in the past few months, some of which I’ll be keeping and some of which I’ve listed in my Etsy store.
This coat below needs no introduction since I stalked it at Anthropologie for over a year. The thrifting Gods were smiling on me that day at Talize when I spotted this in the racks. The fact that it fit me was a huge bonus.
Anthropologie Leopardlily Coat
Black And White Vintage
I already own a black and white gingham maxi coat for winter which I love.
But that didn’t stop me from purchasing this lighter shorter version.
Something about gingham makes me feel wonderfully French.
After thrifting this khaki jacket below I knew it was the perfect canvas to iron on some quirky patches and make it a one-of-a-kind piece.
This vintage tapestry parka is older than me, possibly much older.
I had to stitch up some inner seams on one sleeve but otherwise it is in mint shape. I spotted it just as it was going out onto the thrift store floor. SCORE!!! I’ve been wearing this often this winter. It is casual and comfy but has some panache.
I wore it with my skirt and boots too.
I really loved this poncho below because it has arm holes so it is a cross between a poncho and a sweater. I haven’t been getting much wear out of it though so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this pop up in the Etsy store soon.
Vintage Leather Trench Coat
Leather trench coats are a weakness of mine. This caramel one is one of the latest additions to my collection.
Mad For Plaid
I adore this multicoloured plaid wool statement coat.
Don’t the red boots pop? They have sold but the coat is still available.
Floral Coat For Spring
This is another beautiful light spring/summer statement coat that has since sold.
Classic Jean Trench Coat
I already own a classic jean trench coat which I wear often so I didn’t feel the need to keep this one which has also sold.
Bold Pink Trench Coat
This pink London Fog trench coat is currently for sale. Bright coats are such a nice surprise on a grey day.
This is of course only a glimpse of the many coats I’ve thrifted.
I’ve since added quite a few more both to my Etsy shop (and still have more to list) and to my personal collection.
