From the runway to your closet: Fall outerwear edition
Tired of donning the same, boring cold-weather clothes? Throw that tired peacoat with the anchors on the buttons to the back of your closet, and try out some of these emerging trends in outerwear this fall!
Give your collegiate sweatshirt a breather, and throw on an on-trend, oversized patterned sweatshirt. Just as comfy as your other pullover, this one gives a little extra spice to your after-hours library look. Pair it with jeans or even leggings and a cute pair of sneakers. Whatever you do, leave your sweatpants on the shelf…a sweatsuit outside of the gym is never a good look.
A voluminous coat will not only instantly up your “cool factor” with its innovative shape but also make you feel as cozy as you would while snuggling up in your Patagonia pullover. However, make sure to wear slimmer-fitting clothing underneath to avoid looking like a balloon.
Keep People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals on your side with a (faux) furry number. Fur coats are a fun way to liven up your wardrobe without breaking the bank and are sure to turn some heads, with affordable options available from Forever 21 and H&M. If you’re a brave soul, wear it to class with skinny jeans and Converse. If not, save it as a topper for a special occasion—Linus, anyone?
Oversized pastel coat
Though Easter may be months away, pastel is definitely something you’ll want forever. Choose a relatively neutral tone, such as soft pink, to make it easy to pair with anything day or night. Caution: make sure the fit is perfect so you don’t end up dropping $300 to look like you’re wearing your grandpa’s coat.
