Farmers’ Almanac predicted a colder winter this year, and it seems many designers had a crystal ball as well. With a strong focus on outerwear, the following looks will leave you excited to bundle up in months to come.
Specifically, trenches and peas are back in full force this fall. Varsity jackets and capes are hot trends.
Above all, however, our most important coat note is that these cover-ups deserve centerpiece status. So refined and detailed are they, we encourage you to keep them on as part of an ensemble. Many in luxe fabrics can even be belted to create a dress.
Below are a few of our top picks:
Military-inspired and cleverly belted, at Burberry Prorsum.
Brass buttons and a red pant complete a double-breasted look from Isabel Marant.
With a color combination taken from the wine list, this beautiful wool coat-topped look impressed at Jill Stuart.
Matthew Williamson gets it right with a soft-seamed jacket, mixing textures perfectly.
Woven wool and toggle closures are combined with a fun hoodie at Rebecca Minkoff.
Stella McCartney shows a sophisticated take on the varsity jacket.
Finally, we love 3.1 Phillip Lim’s cool caped crusader.
