Awesome Outerwear from Old Navy

Old Navy has something for everyone when it comes to affordable, stylish outwear. Classic trenches, puffers and peacoats will please your sensible side in neutrals like black, beige and white. Or, go for bold, bright colors to boost your mood when the weather takes a turn for the worse. (At these prices, you don't have to worry about growing tired of, say, a flashy fuschia or attention-getting green.) And, you'll have money left over for coordinating scarves, hats, and gloves. Keep reading for more of our favorite picks. Thanks to reader Alexandra for the tip!

Sometimes I am wary about Old Navy's clothes...most of them really look cheap. I might as well go to "Pretty Woman" or Dots for the same quality of clothes at a cheaper price than Old Navy.If I have to buy something from OLd Navy, I don't want to buy it online. I'd better go to the store to see it myself if the picture online looks as "good and tempting" as the real one in the store

Wow that first coat is so pretty! Definitely going to check out Old Navy when I go shopping this weekend.

I'd have to agree with Bingkee; Old Navy needs to be evaluated in person as their fits are usually huge, and the colour may not be exactly as shown. However, if these pics are true to life, then these coats are so hot! The colors just pop!

i bought the pique wool-blend in black and i love it! kinda itchy sometimes but the cuteness is worth it! definitely not low-quality. very heavy and warm and well-cut.

oh my, that colour is lush! and the coat is just brilliant in every aspect!

Oh, I love the color of that purple one and the price of course! Very good pick! :-)

I'm so glad you think the coats are blog-worthy! :-D I have to say, I'm on day three of owning the black pique wool-blend jacket and it's been perfect--exactly the right warmth, even great in the rain. Like roshi said, I've had a couple of slightly itchy moments (just around the collar against my bare skin), but that's to be expected with wool. Even if this one doesn't last more than the 08-09 winter season, I think it's worth the price. And so flattering for any shape! ;D Done gushing now, I promise.

Oh my my. That magenta color is deLOVELY. I hope it's hanging on a rack at my local ON this week cuz it's mine ALL mine.

I definitely plan on getting that coat as soon as they have a sale!! Waiting on Black Friday! ;-)

I absolutely adore the first one - shape and colour. I wish we had Old Navy here in the UK. I do spot nice stuff online now and again.

Yeah, it may be cute and cheap, but is it functional, lasting, and warm?

Love, love, love that beet sugar color. Now I just have to find a way to justify a new coat for Atlanta's mild winter.
#19 STYLEnosh (Homepage) on 2008-10-30 20:04 (Reply)
STYLEnosh you were reading my mind, I think I can get away with this coat in Atlanta. At least I hope I can. Either way love the bright colors for winter.
