There’s a bite in the wind, suggesting it's time to invest in cosy layers as we move towards the winter festive season. There are two roads to take when it's cold, either stay in bed in pajamas all day, or it's time to put on your coat or jacket for a rendezvous outside to celebrate life. Consider it mood dressing– are you a longline coat kind of person? Or does a jazzy puffer jacket satisfy your hype outerwear needs?
While trends like drop shoulder coats and quilted jackets will continue to be a favourite this fall, there’s much to break the monotony with, and we’ve picked out just the styles dominating the season.
Coat of Arms
The most iconic faction of the fashion upper crust you will never see without a coat–Miuccia Prada, the Olsen sisters and the one and only Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City revival are all you need to be looking at. What’s with the infatuation you ask? Consider everything from functionality to fashion statement. Maybe you’ve stepped outside the office for an impromptu coffee meeting, you are the boss in on-the-go uniform, or maybe you stepped out in your pajamas for a quick run to the grocery store, a coat covers up everything.
If you want to dial it up a bit with some edgy outerwear, add a bomber jacket or a quilted puffer to your shopping list. Kim Kardashian recently stepped out in an oversized Balenciaga bomber.
Is it fashion’s night out? There’s nothing better than a cover-up that acts as the perfect barrier against the chill and is the ultimate pièce de résistance. A statement piece makes all the difference giving even the most basic dress and heels combo a rehaul worthy of Saint Laurent’s runway. Sequined, lacquered, or glazed– we all love a little drama to amp up the occasion.
When you’re in doubt and you don’t know what to wear, a good blazer is all you need. The ultimate street style winner for a while now, it has become the layer that now works beyond the boardroom. Hailey Bieber is an unapologetic blazer fanatic, and we can see why. Its the essential investment piece that can be worn everywhere from lunch with the girls, meetings, fashion weeks– you name it.
