Lovers of the nautical trend will be pleased to learn that it’s still going strong ? in the form of toggle peacoats ? this winter. Stars like Taylor Swift (link to tag) love the double-breasted wool style, and so do we. Wear it with patterned tights and heeled Oxfords for a school-girl look (like T. Swift did), or a cashmere beret and black pants for work:

It might be a splurge, but this Gloverall J. Crew Toggle Coat ($495) is worth the extra dollars. This exclusive jacket, based on vintage navy apparel, comes with actual rope toggles.

This Tommy Hilfiger Hooded Toggle Coat ($203.99, down from $340) is a wardrobe essential ? it’s perfect for work and going out at night.

We’re obsessed with the wool and the wooden toggles on this Topshop Wool Faux Suede Detail Toggle Coat ($170). Wear this coat for years to come.

For a cute and casual toggle coat, look no further than this Delia’s Emma Hooded Toggle Coat ($69.50, down from $89.50). It even comes in an insulated version to keep you extra warm.

Get in to the holiday spirit with this Steve Madden Hooded Toggle Coat in red ($99). With it’s hood, this coat can easily replace your old rain jacket.

I bought a coat like this a while back and find that without a zipper, the coat falls limply in front. i don't know, maybe its just me. but then i am not too much of a fan of this. I didn't want to buy a size smaller either because i have broad shoulders and they won't fit. Looks good on mannequin's or if tailored, but won't look good on me.

Sorry, not loving the look . . . too elementary school for my taste.
