Keeping Warm for New Year's Eve and Beyond

For those of us in northern climes, New Year's Eve outfits include ways in which to keep warm. According to Wikipedia, those who gather in Times Square to watch the ball drop, experience an average temperature of 33.7. This year, the forecast for the event is currently calling for temperatures of around 34 with showers, right on par with average. Last year, it was a brisk 18 degrees with a feels like temperature of 2 degrees. Brrr.

The advantage of snagging a great New Year's coat or jacket is that you can use it for the rest of the winter on a regular basis. Here's some great options:

Rust red coat with fur trim, with an armpit to armpit measurement of 19". Available the etsy store halfCaf for $80.

1960s black and white tweed jacket with a 38" bust. Available at etsy store Light Years Vintage for $99.

Emerald green cotton velvet trapeze coat with a 45" bust. Available at etsy store Mon Desir Vintage for $120.

1960s off white Lilli Ann coat with a bust measurement of 34". Available at etsy store story boutique for $165.

1970s plaid jacket with a bust size of 36". Available at etsy seller Pistol Bazaar for $41.
