PRETTY IN PLAID
Whether you’re going full tartan or you’re more in the mood for a proper check, this lively pattern brings casual elegance to your outerwear selection. Its versatile nature lets you dress up jeans or add festive flair to your work ensemble. Pair with bold, solid-color accessories for added pop.
TIE ONE ON
The oversized overcoat, a trending look for the past few seasons, just got a little more feminine thanks to this winter’s focus on belted waistlines. Adding definition to roomier silhouettes, these self-sashes can be cinched when you’re heading out for the night, or left loose to create an easy weekend feel.
You’d probably never be brave enough to splice your luxe satin quilted jacket with your trusty classic trench, so good thing Versace did it for you, to stunning effect. Striking and sophisticated, mixed-media styles contrast fabrics, patterns, and colors for an edgy vibe. Statement coats like these are best paired with understated accessories, like classic black boots and gloves.
FEELING A LITTLE RUFFLED
Feminine details play an important role in defining this season’s outerwear silhouettes, bringing unexpected grace to utilitarian trenches and drawcord jackets. From full-on frill to a subtle fabric ripple, these ruffles transform each piece from an everyday outer layer to evening attire.
ALL THE TRIMMINGS
Sometimes you want the full fur or faux look. Sometimes, you just want a hint. Luxe embellishments elevate everyday denim and basic canvas to exquisite new levels, while easy shapes still keep things casual enough that you can throw these pieces on over jeans and sneakers.
Last season: All about soldiers in combat with camouflage everything, everywhere. This season: We salute the latest crop of neatly tailored, sharply cut coats that recall officer uniforms. Wear yours over skinny jeans or slim cords for a classic look.
Every New Yorker owns a black coat. Very few will have one of these dramatic, eye-catching pieces that take puffers to new heights and reimagine the standard moto as a veritable work of art. Best way to wear it: Go all-in on an all-black outfit, but save space for one splash of color: white boots, a red miniskirt, or a bright scarf.
