Spring Coats at Geox 34th Street

Today's guest staff post is by Kati, who dropped by the Geox store this week and tried on coats.

Geox on 34th Street has some serious contenders for this spring’s best coats. I sampled an array of styles and colors, and I’m pleased to report that there should be something for everyone here.

Both of these are great, short options for the season. The shimmer on the black coat adds a little something to a wardrobe staple, while I love the versatility of the grey colored jacket with the zip-off hood. Black was priced at $125, and the grey one had no price tag (what my Mom would call “Free!”).

For $175, the red color with white piping is a nice twist on the typical trench coat. And below is a more traditional style with a cute lining ($160).

I loved the cut of this one (left, $150), and the orange color is a fun twist on a the more predictable yellow rain slicker. Add the waist-cinching tie and adjustable arm length, perfect for rainy days turned hot and muggy, and this coat is definitely worth the price.

I was impressed with the quality and detailing on all of the jackets. You could tell time was taken in designing the details: the lining, the flaps, the hardware. My one complaint was the excessive brand stamping all over the pieces. Every buckle and lapel says a little too loudly “GEOX."

(ed. note) Ahh, we can't complain about logos without mentioning our friend The Preppy Princess! Nobody better describes our shared distaste for ginormous logos on our clothing and everything else that could possibly be branded. Luckily these Geox logos fall on the subtle side of logo-ing.

Geox, 29 W. 34th Street between 5th & 6th

Love the casual, anorak looking ones. I'm so in the mood for less dressy outerwear.

Awww, thank you for the love, we just can't help ourselves when it comes to Logophobia. :)
