While I don't really have an easily definable style and will absorb items from all factions into my look, I'm particular about coats. I like trenches and pea coats. That's it. becca likes puffers, so I humor her by throwing some in my coat shopping posts. I don't know her feelings about anoraks, this season's trendiest coat, but I cannot abide them. With all the drawstrings and pockets plus a detachable hood, I have no doubt that they're great for people who are big into outdoor activities. That's fine and dandy, but I'm not buying that these are great coats to wear with a little black dress or a tailored suit. I defy your advice, magazines!
How do you feel about anoraks? Do you think they're classic or a dated? (I wore one as a kid and can't shake the memory to see these as trendy.)
