Fall/Winter Coat Trends

An easy (and necessary if you live in the northeast) way to update your wardrobe from season to season is through your outerwear. A fabulous coat is often the first thing (other than your hair) that anyone notices when you walk into a room or party. Here are five coat trends that will get you through the next two seasons fashionably.

The Cape

One of fall’s hottest coat trends is the cape, it has become a runway and street-style staple.  There are quite a few ways to wear the cape, see some of our favorites below:

We love this trend, especially dressed up with a touch of fur. Most are cinched at the waist for a more flattering silhouette. The ever stylish Blake Lively pulls this look off impeccably in an olive military inspired parka

The leather sleeve is an updated twist that we’ve seen applied to a variety of jackets this season. We’ve seen it work beautifully on trenches, army jackets and blazers, adding a very cool edge to these classic silhouettes. Olivia Palermo’s version, is, as always, perfection




Leather Sleeves


Moto jackets are everywhere, they can be paired with skirts, jeans,  and leggings.   They come with age old street cred but have a new more tailored look.  The off center zipper and longer than the bodice sleeves remain,  but feminine details and a range of colors make this cult classic a must have…

We love the collarless coat because of it’s ultra femininity. Effortlessly classic for day or night, the collarless coat transitions fabulously from work to a night out. We love everything about this trend. It is here to stay as it was also a popular silhouette on the Spring ’14 runways…
