I decided that this past winter was the last year i could deal with being frozen. I thought my search would be much more tedious and unfruitful than this, but turns out i found the perfect jacket just this past week: neutral color, not flashy, classic, could be both sporty and city, will look great equally with galoshes and high heels, and more importantly, it's WARM. Found it at J.Crew and it's by Woolrich. If, like me, you are in the same predicament, i urge you to consider this parka.
