As the fall season rolls in, we are once again, invited to wrap up in a coat. Autumn’s outerwear dress code however, is undeniably exciting. One can switch from modern to contemporary, leather to faux fur, as well as a riot of hues to liven up the nippy weather. Whether for unseasonably balmier days, or for when snow is expected in the forecast, these pieces will keep your coat-game strong –because no matter what the elements are, one must commit to a good outfit moment.

Whether oversized or sculpted, the season’s love affair with classic tweeds and heritage weaves continues –all reimagined with modern sensibilities, of course. Trench coats with clean cuts and precision tailoring will always look sleek and polished. And standing the test of time, the double-breasted pea coat is a wardrobe staple that creates sophisticated, put-together looks. Wear these day-to-night toppers over tights and a tee, or over a knee-length dress.

Leather Coats

Only a leather coat can exude a woman who is fierce and fearless, with a saucy wardrobe to match. There is no such thing as canceling plans, because this piece that defines bold and swagger will make you reconsider. It’s a topper that signals lots of action, mystery and adventure for its wearer. The slick and streamline jacket can be worn with almost anything –from distressed denim and sneakers, to a chic and cozy turtleneck sweater and jeans combo. And for cool weather power dressing, team the trench with a pair of fluid, floor-length wide pants.

Fur Coats

As temperatures drop, look for cozy shearling or faux fur for your sartorial second skin –and the more textures you can work together, the better. This fashionable fluff topper is an arresting way to turn any classic jacket into an eye-catching cool weather element. A fur coat in red is all you need to be party-ready –no matter how basic the rest of the ensemble is. Any chubby, fur coat will also make a plain tee and leggings combo look more pulled together. And for chilly nights out, wear it over a slip dress, coupled with a statement necklace and heels.

The trench coat has staked its claim as the coat trend of the season. It proves its versatility with a variety of colors ranging from tan, to olive green, to bright orange and details ranging from belted, to double breasted buttons and military inspired. A double breasted trench draping the shoulders adds a cool edge to a menswear inspired pant suit. The neutral color of a traditional, tan colored trench coat creates the perfect canvas for adding a pop of color and accessorizing with bright red boots. A military inspired trench worn over a full floral skirt creates a strong, yet feminine look.

Coats are the main attraction this season and can be seen in a variety of styles and silhouettes. Their one common denominator is color. The color palettes run the gamut from muted, ultra-feminine, delicate blush hues, to richly saturated pigments of turquoise, vibrant yellow and fire engine red. Create maximum style impact by wearing vivid colored coats open and pairing with an equally vibrant ensemble. For a more subtle effect, pair soft, dusky pink coats with jeans and ladylike, delicate lace tops.
