The Patent Coat

Fall is around the corner which has turned my attention once again to the fact that I don't have a decent fall coat. Patent is everywhere right now but isn't so trendy that I can't see myself wearing it for more than one season. Nordstrom has some particularly nice selections but the difference between the faux patent and real leather options is bracing.

(L to R)

Burberry London Double Breasted Swing Coat with Patent Piping, $1795. This coat is just gorgeous. I love the patent piping to death and the length is perfect for fall.

Robert Rodriguez Patent Leather Jacket, $795. The sportiest of the bunch but I don't like the way super short coats look on me. They make me feel like I'm wearing kid's clothes.

Calvin Klein Belted Faux Patent Trench, $188. Very cool indeed and has a nice cut. Looks much nice that the very similar Michael Kors version of this coat.

Theory 'Oberon - Polished Leather' Jacket, $885. Okay, forget what I just wrote about short coats. I think the three-quarter sleeves make all the difference.
