As the weather cools down it’s that time of year to update your jacket wardrobe. When buying a coat this season make sure to choose the shape and style that makes your BEST entrance! These top 5 styles are straight from the runway at fashion week.
Oversized coats will continue to fill fashion collections this season. Big and slouchy with dropped shoulders in wool, checks and tweed fabrics lead the way again this Fall. Color is key, and candy-inspired hues are all the rage. Proportion is important here, so if you’re under 5ft” tall, this trend is most likely not for you and won’t be flattering unless worn with very high heels.
Fashion led casual wear and sports cool collide with this season’s new bomber silhouettes. Many styles to choose from, satin, leather or fabric, but I particularly love this off-the-shoulder version. It’s a fresh new take on a classic style that we’ve been wearing for decades.
Furs got special treatment this season, and I don’t think I have seen furs quite like this in the past. Color-blocked squares, bold windowpane grids, and an assortment of lengths and styles. These pricey-toasty furs will surely keep you warm, but also set you back quite a bit. Personally, I am a big fan of faux furs which are just as stylish, keep you warm, and most importantly don’t hurt animals.
Soft and supple, this lamb pelt (technically considered a fur) is unbeatable in the cold. From sweeping coats to shorter styles, they were all over the runways for Fall 2016.
Skip the basic blazer and look for a feminine, sexy blazer in a luxe fabric. A rich, soft velvet blazer will take you effortlessly from day to night. Pair with a sheer blouse for work, and un-shirted or bare-chested for an evening. These are a celebrity favorite right now that are no-fuss perfection.
