Cognac, trenches & wraps…oh my! Tis’ the season to layer on and bundle up! It’s my personal favorite time of year (I love the cold, I know, weird…) and one of the reasons is because It means it’s time to add the best piece to ANY outfit, a coat! It can elevate any look and adds so much interest to an outfit. In the same breath It can also make sheer laziness in wanting to get fully ready, so chic! Are you wearing a McDonald’s t-shirt under that faux fur lined coat? No one knows. It’s your little secret. But also…I hope not.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed on where to begin in curating the perfect coat collection, you’re in the right place! I’m compiling all of the BEST coats on the internet and hopefully making the hunt incredibly easy! Here we go:
Camel Coats: I think this goes without saying that this is my FAVORITE style of coat. I think the neutral tone goes with absolutely everything. I love It in a slim-fit because It can dress up a graphic tee or pair perfectly with a nicer dress and boots!
Trench Coats: This style could be a sub-category of the camel coat (because of the color palette) but It adds a bit more of a vintage style to a look!
Plaid Coats: I could go on and on in this category! Everyone needs at least one plaid coat and here’s why: It adds texture and flair to even a t-shirt, It can create a really cute (and easy) print mix if you pair It with polka dots AND let’s be honest it’s what 90’s dreams are made of! The nostalgia alone makes them worth it!
I swoon over every plaid coat that this brand carries! They’re super affordable and they have stunning pieces.
Formal Coats: It goes without saying that all of the styles in this category can easily be worn in a casual manor, but the best part is that if you have a formal event, Christmas party or even a show…these will be the ones to pair with your sequins!
Casual Coats: Moto style jackets are going to rule and reign this category and rightfully so! I’d recommend one suede and one leather for your collection. I added a few pile coats because they’re the coziest of options and add so much texture, and a parka for the practicality of It!
This brand has some of my favorite casual coats, from faux fur to motor.
Honorable Mentions: These are great options to have as extras when the others aren’t making the cut! Skinny jeans, dresses, sneakers or heels…these coats pair with ALL! A few fun colors, if you’re able to add a few to your collection, are never a bad idea!
These styles simply could not be left out!
