What looks like cozy on the chilliest of days...

The coming chill has got me thinking about the perfect coat in the warmest shade to usher in the new season. My mind immediately goes back to a perennial favourite - Audrey Hepburn's beautifully tailored piece from Breakfast at Tiffany's. I love the cut and the small details of this coat - very elegant and ladylike but the punchy colour prevents it from being boring or too predictable.

Unfortunately I don't possess the Willy Wonka-esque powers to reach into the screen and steal my perfect coat - so here are some alternatives.

At Kate Spade

and J. Crew

This is my current fave of the season: http://canada.frenchconnection.com/product/womens+coats+and+jackets/70BC2/KITTY+WOOL.htm

I like the black but the red one is pretty too.

Daniella - they most certainly do... trying to convince myself I don't need a new coat...
CH - I love a little colour in winter, breaks up all the grey and dreariness.
Shannon -thanks, what a cute coat! Love it - it looks alot like the Kate Spade one too :)
Jenny- perfect, I'm sure you'll look fabulous in both!

Ahhhh! Shar, how did you guess my absolute favorite scene from Breakfast at Tiffany's? I would live in this coat if I could!

As always, Audrey Hepburn's outfit is impeccable. I guess, seeing who usually dresses her for the movies, that red coat must be a Givenchy.... Anyway, I love it!
