Have you ever put together a killer outfit and then remembered that it’s October and you have to ruin it with a coat? Fear not! There’s some super amazing options in store right now that will have you wanting all eyes on the outerwear. Here’s 3 ways we suggest tackling outerwear featuring some stellar options.
1. The Statement Coat
Not for the faint of heart, the statement coat is all like ‘SPOTLIGHT PLEASE!’ And it deserves it! This one in particular is from the lovely ladies of Hey Jude, we’ve got it for $65. The drama is all in the length, and the pattern, and okay the colour too. The key with a statement coat is to go outside the box a little bit, listen to your hearts desires and go with your gut. A piece like this is definitely not for everyday but it sure is a showstopper when it’s taken out on the town. Think about pairing the statement coat with pretty simple underpinnings to let it shine. We did it with a little WIlfred silk dress ($45) similar Here, and Balenciaga boots ($295), similar Here.
2. The Evening
We must admit, this one isn’t strictly confined to the hours of 7pm -12am. This beauty by N_8 is just such a stunner that we wanted to show how it can be paired with the most evening of dresses and still totally work. What is really special about this one is the button placement, a little higher than your average overcoat to really accentuate that gorgeous cocoon shape and leave whatever confection you have underneath to breathe. Also a mention has to be made to this colour which is arguably the best neutral since sliced bread. It’s such a beautiful rich jewel tone but lends itself so well to virtually any colour because it’s so rich.
3. The Multi-Tasker
This one can do double and triple duty. Think day, evening, and even a little bit of a statement. This one is the Maje drawstring leather jacket ($295) and it’s basically begging to be worn over everything. Think of going neutral for the colour to get the optimum amount of wear out of it and then play around with some details that are a little more unexpected. We love this jacket in particular because it adds a little more polish to a pair of super distressed denim (more here) and can be thrown over top of a dress like this one for that perfect amount of edge.
