Coat Check: How to Take Your Look in a Ladylike Direction

As much as we live in our standby outerwear classics (a peacoat or trench coat, depending on who you ask in the office), there's something utterly chic about this season's more ladylike option. Thanks to Ashley Olsen, Amanda Seyfried, and Alexa Chung — all of whom have opted for slightly oversize, car-coat iterations — we're privy to a silhouette that may seem shapeless at first, but ultimately provides a sleek finish and a nod to old-school Grace Kelly-inspired styling. What do we love most about this style? It's feminine, without erring on the side of too girlie; thus, it's versatile at its core. It's pretty amazing when it comes to hiding (or, for that matter, accentuating, if you so choose) those cozy, cold-weather layers underneath. And if you cinch it with a wide belt à la Alexa, it will highlight your curves, in addition to injecting extra definition to your coat shape. There's really not a whole lot we don't love about it. To switch it up by taking on a full-on Fall-wardrobe overhaul, you don't have to do more than find the ladylike coat that fits. Shop our editors' must-have picks below.
