Finding the Right Winter Coat

By AM Northwest Staff

We've been scraping the ice of the windshield for a couple of weeks now, it's time to break out the winter coats!

We were joined by PDX Shopgirl Dani Juhala for the secrets to getting the best coat for you.

Here were some of her tips:


  1. Think Quality – go for a wool or cashmere blend – synthetic fibers just don’t hold up as well. Consider Fit: Always Shaped not Boxy, the length should be between thigh and knee!
  2. Go Classic – a classic trench coat in a neutral color will be the most versatile coat you will ever buy. It looks great with jeans or a suit and you can accessorize with scarves, belts or boots!
  3. One Trendy Jacket a Season: to update your winter wardrobe buy one fun color, quilted sporty or trendy chic coat – try a fall color that flatters your type! Buy a shorter coat to elongate your legs – buy a longer coat to elongate your torso!

    TIPS: - bring the right clothes to try on underneath

    • have your coat dry-cleaned at the end of the season – store it well.
    • Shop the spring sales for next year’s quality coat!!
