Stylish and Warm Winter Coats for Women

We still have a long way to go until this winter is over so you might as well look fabulous while keeping warm.

Two key points to look out for while you’re shopping for a new coat are sales and pockets. A lot of boutiques are making room for their new spring arrivals, which means plenty of promotions on winter items. Pockets are a must have because you can conveniently put your gloves, phone, or keys inside instead of shoving them into a bottomless purse.

Check out some great steals we found in local stores:

Speer & Crane

South Fullerton Avenue in Montclair is becoming a shopping hot spot with the addition, Speer & Crane. The haberdashery opened two months ago by brother in laws Chris Albanese and Jim Alamia when the duo noticed that there weren’t many mens’ shops in Montclair. With careful products decisions and dedication, they brought Speer & Crane to life and celebrated their grand opening two weeks ago.

“Business has been very good and over the holiday season, we’ve had lots of gift shoppers coming in. The opening was definitely one of our biggest sales days because of all the buzz going on,” said employee Chaz Tedesco.

Lapel Flower

For the Chuck Bass in your life, every dapper man should own a lapel flower. Charming and fashionable, the lapel flowers by Isaiah Hemmingway come in various colors and fabrics; they also create custom designs. The smaller lapel flower is great for a man who is iffy on wearing the eye-catching accessory since it isn’t as over powering as the larger flower. Pin it on a high end suit or on a casual blazer, this small and tasteful item goes a long way!

Accent With Flowers

After 17 years as a staple of Church Street, Accents With Flowers floral and gift shop (41 Church Street, Montclair, NJ, 07042) will close its doors after the new year.
