Winter Wardrobe Staple: 5 Great Black Coats
Now that it’s getting chilly, I’ve been on the lookout for chic and quality coats that I can wear for winters to come. Here are my classic picks with a fashion forward twist (covering various price points):
Helmut Lang Leather & Fur Combo Coat, BUY NOW $1,895
If you’ve been reading my posts lately, it will probably come as no surprise that I’m including a piece from Helmut Lang. This leather and fur coat is amazing because it combines the look of a trendy fur vest with the edge of a leather jacket–it’s certainly at the top of my holiday wish list!
Andrew Marc Military Coat, BUY NOW $595
A pea coat is a closet staple so why not update it with the military trend? I love the interesting neck and hem lines and the piping for an added touch of style.
Calvin Klein Drapey Wool Blend Belted Coat, BUY NOW $469.50
This beautiful Calvin Klein coat has a dramatic, oversized collar that is a great topper for a jeans and boots look or an office shift dress. Also, can be worn day to night.
ASOS Oversized Coat With Hood, BUY NOW $197.67
How cozy does this coat look? I love the built-in scarf and the cape style. ASOS also offers free shipping and returns so if it doesn’t fit, it’s no hassle to send it back.
Zara Coat with Leather Edging, BUY NOW $159
This coat is simple and streamlined but the exposed zipper and leather trim add an edge that makes this coat stand out.
Cool Color Trends to Wear into the Fall
These fives staples rocked the summer season and will continue to be huge into the fall. Here are our top tips for helping you transition these style splurges into the colder months!
Red – Red is going to be a huge color come autumn. Find a variety of reds in different shades and textures so you have the option to be bold, soft or glamorous. A great signature red item to invest in for the fall would be a pair of red shoes like the Lucia Suede Platform Wedge ($198) from Ann Taylor. The suede will be a fab fabric for colder weather and these shoes would pair well with a wrap dress.
Blue/Teal – Blues and teals are perfect for transitioning into September. Buy accessories in these cool tones to add the perfect finishing touch to your overall look. A set of bracelets like Chamak by Priya Kakkar Bangles ($58/4 at Nordstrom) helps lend a pop of color to your outfit while also displaying your trendsetting style.
Colorblocking – Colorblocking has been a big summer trend that will continue well into winter. You can wear this style in a two-tone pairing or in a multi-range of colors. To make the look just right for your office, stick to one color and pair it with a neutral. We love this 2 B Rych Colorblock Ponte Dress ($285 on neimanmarcus.com) because it combines nude accents with a burst of bold red!
Leopard – In the colder months, leopard looks sleek and chic! For this coming season, it’s all about bold outerwear that will get you noticed. A sophisticated and more demure style like the ASOS Leopard Coat ($155.15) can work its magic with an LBD or a pair of skinny jeans.
Orange/Rust – Orange and rust shades are the new brown for fall. Use these colors as great neutrals that add an autumn glow to your look. Choose a pretty satin shirt like this Patterson J. Kincaid Harlow Pocket Blouse ($98 on bergdorfgoodman.com). The burnt orange color will work well at the office when paired with a navy pencil skirt and can easily transition to a girls night out, too!
