There isn't a classier statement than the cape, and this Fall, our favorite designers offer this iconic outerwear piece in a variety of colors, details, and fabrics. From mariner preppy to tuxedo luxe, each is a showstopper and the must-own outerwear item this season.
We believe animal print is a neutral, a classic, and a key piece for every Fall lineup. Leopard coats have been spotted recently and over the years on our favorite It girls with distressed denim and white tees, classic little black dresses, and smart slacks with slim black turtlenecks. We fully endorse adding this wild thing to your closet. The only problem — which one?
This Fall's mariner-inspired military trend was a clear winner on the Fashion Week runways, but it was Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid's recent collaboration and unforgettable NYFW show that took this trend to the next level. Military coats are another classic silhouette that transcends time and trends and pair perfectly for work, weekend, and in between.
This quilted, sporty number takes on a whole new meaning this season, as designers decided to dress the puffer coat up with more glamorous looks for Fall. This high-low combo may be tricky to pull off every day, so we'll be pairing ours with miniskirts, tights, turtlenecks, and our new lace-up boots.
Shearling takes center stage this Fall with a cool collection of styles for every Autumn adventure. The moto-inspired silhouette balances out the more romantic floral dresses of the season, and this is the only coat you'll see us in all weekend long.
Classic Winter plaids got a serious upgrade this season with boxier silhouettes, contrast edges, and fuzzy fabrics. Choosing a plaid coat as your statement outerwear is a smart one, since plaids will always be in style. From easy indigo denim and over-the-knee boots to the jumper dress we can't get enough of, plaid coats are a classic Fall favorite.
Long lengths still rule the streets for Fall, as the duster (aka maxi) coat earned its spot as one of the coolest coats to own. Less is more when wearing the duster with solid colors, simple silhouettes, and classic shoes — fresh white sneakers, chic heels, or slimming sock boots.
We're dreaming of every coat that's pretty in pink. Blush pink, to be precise. These romantic statement coats have won the hearts of our favorite designers, from the plush fabrics, bow accents, timeless trench coats, and quilted down jackets.
Our childhood coat complete with the timeless toggle closure is back in a grown-up version. Classic wool twills and soft brushed flannels are the most notable fabrics for the new duffel coat, in easy neutrals you can wear anywhere and everywhere.
