The Weekender: Anoraks


A chic and casual coat is ideal for the weekends. When I found myself wearing my peacoat with my gym clothes, I knew I had to find an alternative. To look pulled together on a daily basis it’s important that the elements of your outfit make sense. In my case, yoga pants and sneakers looked messy with a polished peacoat but paired with an anorak coat I became purposefully sporty.

We rounded up a few of our favorite options:


1. Calvin Klein Packable Rain Anorak, $105; 2. Ivanka Trump Wool Anorak with Faux Fur Trim, $180; 3. Sam Edelman Down Anorak, $126.99

 Calvin Klein Packable Rain Anorak

There is something so cool and casual about an easy olive jacket. This is updated enough to take you from the gym to a low key dinner, just pair with jeans and ankle boots. Bonus: Super easy to pack for travel.

Looking for something a bit more sophisticated? We love this elegant option by Ivanka Trump. Like most things she does, it’s ladylike and timeless.

Sam Edelman Down Anorak

Affordable and goes with everything in classic navy.
