I have to admit something: I have a slight obsession with coats and jackets. My collection grows every year, which really causes a problem considering my studio apartment does not have a coat closet. But when I see a cute new style, I simply have to have it. To me, so many jacket and coat silhouettes are truly timeless, so I see no harm in adding to the collection.
Each classic style is so different and gives off a unique vibe. For example, the classic trench? Makes all your Emily in Paris dreams come true—suddenly you want to eat a croissant and wear a beret. A teddy coat? Now you’re trendy and cozy, especially paired with an all-black ensemble (see below).
However, given many of us have to wear coats for more than half the year, it’s all too easy to get burnt out on wearing the same ones and to run out of ideas on how exactly to style them. But (you already know) we’ve got you covered.
Here are six mom-approved ways to style some of the cutest coats and jackets this fall:
1. The Anorak Raincoat
raincoat / sweater / jeans (under $40) / boots (40% off!) / earrings / bag
2. The Teddy Coat

3. The Plaid Coat
4. The Utility Jacket
