Pumpkin carving is lovely, but let’s be honest—a change in wardrobe is the most exciting thing about fall. In light of this, we made it our quest to find you the season’s sartorial best, from handbags, to boots, to scarves, and now, coats.
Outerwear is a personal favorite of mine. It allows you to make a major statement with just one piece (ah, simplicity), and also has the versatility to be worn in numerous ways. Hunting for this season’s best left me practically drooling, so let’s not delay this any longer. Here are ten ridiculously chic coats you probably need this season…
1. Maison Scotch Classic Tailored Jacket, $255
Equal parts preppy and cool, this tailored houndstooth coat is incredibly versatile. Pair it with ripped jeans—as above—to dress up a casual look, or with skinny jeans and thigh high boots for a touch of sex appeal.
2. Zara Zip-Up Coat, $199
Last year the fashion set was all about the pink coat, but this year I’m betting we’ll see blue take center stage. Hop on the trend early with this gorgeous turquoise number.
3. Fashion Union Relaxed Trench, $123.78
Every wardrobe needs a classic trench. This dreamy option is especially swoon-worthy because it pairs a timeless silhouette with a trendy cropped layer.
4. Paper Crown Quinn Jacket, $318
This cozy boucle zip-up motorcycle jacket is simultaneously sweet and edgy. Its texture will add interest to any ensemble and its versatile hue will pair well with both neutrals and bolder colors.
5. Zara Parka with Detachable Quilted Lining and Faux Fur Hood, $199
As far as I’m concerned, a faux fur-lined parka is a staple in every girl’s wardrobe (especially if you live somewhere that gets to below freezing temps). I like this version because of its loose, modern shape and dark khaki hue.
6. Maison Scotch Long ‘80’s Punk Inspired Jacket, $325
Long, single button coats are a big trend this season. I love this light blue option for its mix of ladylike and punk appeal.
7. Warehouse Cape Coat, $180.91
There’s something about a structured cape that just seems so British-chic to me. I imagine wearing this stylish coat as I hang out with Alexa Chung and nibble fish and chips. Cheerio.
8. LC Lauren Conrad Lace Bomber Jacket, $48.99
This adorable lightweight lace bomber is perfect for all the ladies in warm weather climates whose definition of “fall” is turning off the air conditioning. Layer it with a scarf and skinnies for a versatile and stylish look.
9. ASOS Leather Look Biker Jacket with Structured Shoulder, $123.78
Baby blue strikes again! I love the contrast of this sugary sweet hue and tough-girl faux leather. I would pair this with a shift dress, skinny jeans, a maxi skirt… or just about anything, actually.
10. Zara Mixed Faux Fur Round Neck Coat, $169
Blush, textured, with a streamlined silhouette? Talk about stunning. This coat is sophisticated, endlessly chic and just dying to be worn all autumn long.
