Your coat is arguably the most important purchase you’ll make all season. It’s the one piece virtually everyone sees you in, from strangers on the street to coworkers and family. And with so many statement-making, on-trend offerings available now, it’s officially time to start viewing your topper like the integral wardrobe item it is. If anyone knows how to work an outerwear option, it’s the street style set. From throwing a belt on top to matching with accessories, the fashion insider crowd has a seemingly endless supply of styling tricks to steal that will instantly elevate your look.
Play With Print
Leopard for Fall is always a good idea. Up the ante by treating it like a neutral and mixing with other patterned picks like bold floral boots.
Dress it Up
Wear your coat like a dress by cinching it at the waist and finishing off with OTK boots (in Fall must-have red, of course).
Keep it Slak
Work the all-black-everything vibe by swapping out your khaki trench for an ebony option and throwing it over textures like patent leather and pleats. The finishing touch? A red lip, of course.
Amp Up Solid
Classic colorblocking provides the perfect anchor for busy patterns like ’70s-inspired florals.
Add High Sine
Casual, comfy basics transform into a showstopping look when you throw slick patent leather on top. Bonus points if you do so in a bold hue.
