When the temperatures start to drop it’s time to bundle up; stay in style with the most flattering and fun outerwear trends of the season.
Four new styles are going to be big this year: the blanket coat, the cape coat, the wrap coat, and the oversized coat. These voluminous pieces mark a more effortless style with comfort becoming a necessity. Look for bold prints, fur accents, minimalist silhouettes, and oversized lapels.
Quilted bomber jackets and shearling are the top styles coming off runways. The 90s bomber jacket is making a comeback with heavy studded embellishments, shiny quilted textures, and bright colors – all giving this year’s jacket a fresh edge.
Since shearling jackets can make you look boxy, it’s important to slim down your silhouette with what you wear underneath. Opt for a button-down blouse, leggings, and Chelsea boots for an up-to-date, casual look.
This winter it’s all about keeping in the warmth. Chunky knitted scarves and long fur styles are showing up in stores in an array of patterns, lengths, colors, and textures. For this season, it looks like the bigger the better. Pair with a wrap or sweater dress, and tie a belt around the whole look.
Just as with every other type of outerwear this season, fur and chunky knits are in. What’s really exciting about this year’s styles are the variety of shapes, sizes, and textures available. Berets, caps, newsboy, panama, pop-poms, cloche, kerchiefs, and fez hats are all charmers, especially with feminine detailing like feathers, ribbons, and lace.
When selecting a style, choose one that fits your face shape and personal style to complement your look.
Call it the Kate Middleton effect – long gloves are the favored pick of designers. Chic for day or evening, they accentuate the forearm and are a throwback to old Hollywood glamour.
Ornamented gloves with gemstones, golden embroidery, and elaborate patterns almost look like crown jewels. When you wear a pair, let them take center stage in your outfit with a solid colored black coat.
The excitement and anticipation of picking out new boots for fall has to be one of the best feelings of the season, especially since this year’s styles are drool-worthy.
Prints, crazy textures, gladiator styles, knee-highs, stacked heels, Chelsea, stiletto finishes, lace-ups, over the knee, slouchy, fur, peep-toe booties, and moto – the list goes on and the choices are plentiful. Whichever ones you choose, make sure to weather-proof them so they stay beautiful through downpours and snowstorms.
