Op, how tall are you?
I’m asking because I’m short and some of the coats posted wouldn’t look good on me. I guess you don’t have to be worried if you are average height.

You're right...I kinda do...but I'm scared I'll feel ridiculous in the faux fur Macy's one

The one I posted is really nice in real life. Macy's offers free returns so may as well try it.

I'm 5"4
I ideally want something a few inches past my knees (if not longer) so that the hem of my dress doesn't stick out. I think that looks nicer

Does your "fur" coat run big or small?

The Macy's faux fur? Just ordered it, I don't know.

I didn't have to. The content says 67% wool, 33% linen.

At least for that!

But I'm sad because it's the maxi style I've been looking for quite some time.

I also bought these from asos:

https://www.asos.com/us/prd/21.....rders

https://www.asos.com/us/prd/22.....rders

Between these three and the short fur from Macy's, Beh one will be good.

Thanks to all who weighed in and helped!!

I saw a high end designer jacket on sale today made of wool and linen. I think this is becoming more common than it used to be and it's something we need to look out for.
Op, thanks for this thread! I'm not buying a coat for myself right now so I enjoyed going shopping with you!

I think you might like this!
It has the formal dressy look without any boring wool and no faux fur. It’s 50% off now so it’s in your budget.

I actually love it! It's very similar to the asos one I got!! (Linked above) I'm going to bookmark this in case that one doesn't work out.
