The Wardrobe Staple You Didn't Know You Needed This Time of Year

As we make the transition from winter to spring (and slowly start to shed those layers), it's natural to want to put on the first linen dress we can get our hands on. And since the groundhog saw its shadow this year, winter will be staying for another six weeks. That said, you're going to want to dress accordingly. That said, we're not saying that a parka is in order. In fact, there's something that's perfect for this time of year that you may not have thought of: a blanket coat. 

The beauty of a blanket coat is that it's effortlessly chic and lighter than, say, a wool coat or parka (as they're often unlined), but they're voluminous enough to bundle up in if needed. While they're certainly cozy, they can be a little tricky to style. Luckily, skinny jeans and leggings are the perfect counterparts to wear with the oversize outerwear piece. With that, shop 15 blanket coats we're coveting below.
