7 Cute Coats by Knitted Dove ...

By Jennifer

On the ground right now, there are more than 9 inches of snow, all fallen within the past 24 hours. On Friday, however, it was bright and sunny and 52 degrees outside — ah, Michigan! Just when I think it’s safe to put away my winter coats and bring out the spring jackets, the weather surprises me and takes a turn again. To cheer myself up, I’ve been looking at new winter coats, and I’ve found some darling ones I’d love to have! Here are 7 cute coats by new designer Knitted Dove.

1 Well-Revered Coat

Price: $97.99 at modcloth.com
ModCloth Warmth Scale Rating: 3 of 5
I’m oh-so-tired of wearing my black pea coat or my grey wool — I need a coat with color, and this coat, in a cherry-red ploy/cotton blend, is just the thing. I love the little nip in at the waist and the sweet ruffles around the collar. It would look darling with a pair of skinny jeans and tall brown boots…

2 Playful Pleasantries Coat

Price: $90.99 at modcloth.com
ModCloth Warmth Scale Rating: 3 of 5
Did I say I was tired of black and grey? I was so mistaken! This coat is so chic, and without the benefit of vivid colors. The top is a classic double-breasted cream wool/poly blend, with dual rows of black buttons, slightly puffed sleeves, and a notched Peter Pan collar. But the bottom is a black and grey herringbone pattern, adding a marvelous bit of visual interest to an otherwise run-of-the-mill coat. I love it!

3 Let’s Go up State Coat

Price: $84.99 at modcloth.com
ModCloth Warmth Scale Rating: 2.5 of 5
This is what my Grams would call a “driving coat,” with a roomy fit, comfortable for (yes) driving in. It’s made of a warm poly-cotton blend in navy, with a thin red plaid running through it and a creamy faux fur collar. The coat also has side pockets, ideal for stashing cell phone, driving gloves, and keys.

4 Sign of the Thames Jacket

Price: $97.99 at modcloth.com
ModCloth Warmth Scale Rating: 2.5 of 5
I can see it now: wearing this coat over a black pencil skirt with patterned tights and leather ankle booties, admiring m reflection in every shop window I pass on an afternoon of shopping downtown. The coat itself is cozy and warm, with an oversized velvet-trimmed collar, with matching trim along the button placket and cuffs.

5 Alamo Square Coat

Price: $164.99 at modcloth.com
ModCloth Warmth Scale Rating: 3 of 5
Ah, another coat that’s colors may mark is as “demure,” but with style that makes it anything but. It’s longer than most, ideal for wearing with skirts and dresses, with a tie-belt waist, side pockets, and a contrasting black faux-fur collar. I’m not quite sure why, but I also adore the buttons, probably because of how well they tie the coat together, color-wise. Pair with a short skirt, opaque black patterned tights, and cream or pale grey pumps. Gorgeous, and warm!

6 Houndstooth of the Baskervilles Coat

Price: $161.99 at modcloth.com
ModCloth Warmth Scale Rating: 4 of 5
Who’s the warmest of them all? Why, you, my dear, in this brilliant crimson hounds-tooth check coat. It features a wide, incredibly warm collar, fitted waist with a flattering flair beneath, and clever side pockets. Wear it with a pair of skinny jeans and tall black boots, or with a wool jumper, thick patterned leggings, and cute ankle booties.

7 Highland Reel Coat

Price: $147.99 at modcloth.com
ModCloth Warmth Scale Rating: 3 of 5
I’m mad about plaid, so I would love this coat even if it was lacking some of the design cues that make is so pretty. Like, the charming ruffles along the stand-up collar, along the front, and around the hem, and again at the sleeves, or the angled side pockets. Wear it over an LBD, or really, any of your other winter-time ensembles, for added warmth and sweetness.

Well, now that I’ve shared these Knitted Dove coats with you, I feel a little better, though I still can’t decide which I’d prefer to have… I’m leaning towards that red hounds-tooth check one… but enough about me! Which of these cute coats do you like best, and why?
