Autumn is every Fashionista’s favorite season for one main reason: Outerwear. From parkas to peacoats, there are just so many fabulous coats out there! (Does a girl really need to choose just one?) If you’re having trouble deciding which styles suit you best, you’re in luck! Below, our guide to bundling up with the best of ‘em.
#1: The Cape
Maybe it was Gwyneth in her Tom Ford confection at the 2012 Oscars or all of that “equestrian-chic” we’ve been seeing on TV, but the cape is our #1 pick. Choose classic black or basic beige and layer over a sweater and riding pants. Alternatively, zip one on over a leather moto-jacket and sleek maxi-skirt ensemble. Either way, you’re red carpet ready!
#2: The Parka
Not the athletic type? Don’t dismiss this style so quickly…. This sporty standby has a new attitude! Leaner, sleeker and more flattering than ever before, 2012’s parkas are as chic as can be. Toss one on over a pretty, floral printed dress (with tights, of course!) for a cool-girl vibe – but leave the ski boots behind.
#3: The Peacoat
Borrowed from the boys, this time-honored piece is – ironically – very ladylike when done in softer shades of gray, brown or pink. Feminine and functional, it’s the perfect final layer to your most alluring date-night look!
Nothing says, “look at me!” like a futuristic, cobalt blue zip-front funnel neck creation. If you’re not afraid to standout in a crowd – and if you pride yourself on always sporting the latest trends – this one’s for you. P.S. LOVE the boucle texture on this one!
