Goodwill is a great place to pick up a fashion-forward vintage coat. Look for quality fabrics and signs of wear. Also search details that make a piece unique. Remember, anything can be altered. Buttons can be changed.
This is my favorite Goodwill jacket find. It is the perfect weight for this time of year...and is also a great jacket to wear in the rain.
I've been searching for some fun funky vintage buttons to add to this jacket for a long time (haven't found the perfect set yet). I change the pins from floral to something with sparkle...depending on my outfit that day.
I paid around $5 for this jacket.
Be on the look out for leather. Leather jackets are always in style. Search for something with details that make it unique, like this biker jacket. Love the way this fashionista paired it with a skirt! Super cute!
This style harkens back to the 60's and 70's. I am pretty sure I have family photos where my Mom is wearing a coat just like this (hey, maybe this is HER old jacket?!).
A tie waist wool coat is a smart addition to any wardrobe. If you find one that doesn't have a fur collar, that can be added later.
