The weather in New York City has finally given way to the cooler
temperatures of fall. Outerwear this time of year in some ways has
a tougher job than winter jackets. It needs to strike the balance
of looking great and be versatile enough to deal with the
temperature fluctuations common this time of year. You also want
something that can carry you into winter with the proper layering
before breaking out the heavier coats. There are lots of styles,
colors, and materials to choose from. Here are some of my favorite
coats for fall.
Wool & Wool Blends
This may seem counterintuitive from what I discussed above but
these particular styles are thinner than the traditional wool coats
that usually come to mind. It makes them just warm enough but not
too heavy for this time of year. This one featured in the
monochromatic look post is actually really soft. Most of the
ones selected also have the great wrap detail at the waist.
This is a big trend right now that’s everywhere. It’s not
hard to understand why especially if you’ve tried one on. They
fit right in with the cozy aspect of fall. These coats tend to fall
on the more casual side of things but look great with a pair of
jeans and heels as seen here.
This is a classic cool-girl style. It adds some edge to an
outfit. Even though this is a classic style there are plenty of
variations to it including some with additional lining for
warmth. This type of jacket can be styled so many ways whether
it’s with a great pair of jeans or with your favorite dress.
A trench coat is another timeless style. One thing I love about
this coat is that it will resurface again during the transition
between winter and spring. While you can go for the traditional
look there are lots of variations in color, length, and even
material to cater to your individual style.
