There is very little in this world that I love more than perfectly fitted outerwear. It can complete an outfit, it can be the central focus of an outfit, it can make people turn their heads on the street just to get another glimpse. (Am I the only one whose boyfriend says I look at girls more than he does?)
So I’m here today to share with you some of the gorgeous coats and jackets I’ve spotted lately and some great choices in stores that you can pick up to give your fall wardrobe the perfect finishing touch.
(1) For a chic topper that finishes your look perfectly, try something with plaid, tweed or maybe some embellishments.
While Olivia's outfit is great overall, the coat is spectacular, one of my absolute favorites.
The coat is a little pretty, a little glam and absolutely perfect for throwing over a dress like Olivia did or slim pants and a sweater for fall.
In lieu of the pricey Louis Vuitton Resort 2012 version Miss Olivia showed off in Paris, here are a few similar styles for us mere mortals.
Plaid Passporter Coat - $300 @ Madewell
Double-breasted Plaid Peacoat - $140 @ Victoria's Secret
Candie's Faux-Fur Plaid Coat - $100 @ Kohl's
(2) Want to stand out in a crowd, you little showstopper, you? Try a standout coat in lipstick red or a jewel tone that complements your coloring.
Rosie's red leather from Burberry is a great twist on a classic trench.
Rosie shows us the perfect way to spice up a traditional piece like a trench coat here, add a splash of color, an interesting fabric or a patterned design.
As the face of Burberry Body we can assume that she got a good deal on her coat, but if you’re not in the market for a Burberry classic quite yet, check out some of the alternative options below.
MICHAEL Michael Kors Single Breasted Trench - $120 (sale price) @ Nordstrom
Classic Trench - $100 @ Asos.com
Volcom "Seeing Double" Leopard-Print Trench Coat - $100 @ Bloomingdale's
(3) Are you loving the retro 60’s & 70’s looks for fall? Than this coat’s for you…
Sienna seems to be transitioning back into the boho style that made her a fashion icon and this look is a great example.
If you’re interested in a hippie-inspired a la Kate Moss or Sienna Miller, look a faux fur chubby, coat, snood or scarf are all great choices this season. As I said here
, faux fur is a pretty good investment, warmth is usually in. 🙂
The key to finding the right faux fur coat is getting a length that hits you at the right place to flatter your frame, that doesn’t look cheap or automatically fake, and that isn’t so bulky that you look like you’re auditioning for the role of the Abominable Snowman.
Faux Fur Tuck Stole - $50 @ TopShop
Faux Fur Coat In Midi Length - $175 (on sale) @ Asos.com
Kristen Blake Belted Faux Fur Vest - $110 @ Nordstrom
(4) Are you inspired by low-key styles and live for mixing and matching pieces in interesting ways? Proceed!
Emma Roberts & Olivia Munn rocked old school denim jackets for - what else - a Levi's event.
If you initial reaction to a jean jacket is “ack – no 80’s styles pease,” remember that the Olsens’ just launched a high-end denim collection earlier this year for their Elizabeth and James line and these chic little toppers are showing up EVERYWHERE.
Thing to keep in mind? It’s going to be very challenging to pair a jean jacket, even a darker wash, with a pair of jeans. Odds are, you’ll end up looking like Uncle Jesse, so stick to mixing this piece with dresses, stripes or pants of a different fabric.
GUESS Crop Denim Jacket - $120 @ Bloomingdale's
Three Dots Stretch Denim L/S Motorcycle Jacket - $75 (on sale) @ 6pm.comLauren by Ralph Lauren Corduroy Trim Denim Jacket - $80 (on sale) @ Nordstrom
As for you gentlemen out there, don’t despair, check out the Million Looks for a breakdown on mens outerwear for this fall here. Personally, I think the two sexiest coats on a man are a (faux) leather bomber, Top Gun style, and a classic wool peacoat. Yum!
Happy hunting my little fashionistas, be sure to share any great finds! 🙂
