I’ve been meaning to write about this J. Crew jacket for a while, because it is such a fantastic—but way better-priced—stand-in for this classic from Barbour. But I’m glad I waited, because right now, it’s one of many, many items the site is offering for 25% off. Just remember to enter the code STYLETREAT at checkout.
Sometimes—when I’m totally tempted to buy something but know I really shouldn’t— I’ll post it here, just to get it out of my system. This Emerson Fry anorak has been haunting my dreams for weeks: now I hand it off to you. No backs.
This is pretty cute too, though, and costs half as much.
And here’s one that’s cheaper still.

So many different ways to go with this one: you can choose something utterly classic, like so.
Or make your duffel coat your puffer.
Or go with that whole pastel thing that’s so happening this season.
Like everything, a duffel gets a little more sophisticated in grey, and I like the houndstooth moment on the pockets, too.
Oh, I’m totally serious.
