Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the weather and of course all the new wardrobe options to try. This week I’m featuring the must-have jackets and coats that should be in every fashion lover’s closet.
The “Moto” Jacket
Anything goes when it comes to the “moto” (motorcycle-inspired) jacket this season. Variations in real and faux leather are fitted and cropped with detailed stitching and hardware.
The Bomber Jacket
Everybody’s favorite seventies bomber jacket with knitted cuffs and collar is back. Variations in satin, nylon, and wool with sequin and embroidered emblems and patch pockets are everywhere.
The Cocoon Coat
Cocoon jackets and coats have been a traditional go-to jacket for cooler temps. Styles that range from stadium styles with faux fur to collegiate styles with toggle closures there is never a lack of options.
The Pea Coat
Another classic that never goes out of style. Each season designers and brands reimagine the “pea coat” to reflect the trends of the season and the brand’s identity. This season JCrew offers a smorgasbord of candy-colored options along with the traditional navy and neutral colors.
The Faux-fur Coat
Faux-fur has significantly improved over the last decade. With advances in technology and the increasing awareness of animal rights consumers are becoming more conscious of what they are wearing. This season we see the updated version of the classic leopard faux-fur coat and longer styles in a variety of colors from baby pastels to rich jewel tones.
In recent years the once utilitarian jacket has become uber chic. These updated styles have an anorak quality, while still providing plenty of warmth for the blustery, snow-filled winter months.
Stay warm and stylish out there.
Till next time!
