Tis the season for jackets and outerwear! As the temps get colder, it is time to bundle up in style. There are so many trending styles of coat this fall - from the trench and puffer coats to the bomber and denim jackets. I personally love switching up my jackets from day to day, so I wanted to highlight some of the trending coats and how to style them for every occasion - casual or dressy.

  • Trench Coats Styled Casual
    • Choose the Right Trench Coat: Opt for a classic trench coat in a neutral color like beige, khaki, or black. These colors will compliment the casual look of a sweat suit.
    • Fit is Key: Make sure the trench coat fits well and isn't too oversized. It should compliment your body shape without appearing too bulky.
    • Select the Sweat Suit: Choose a sweat suit that is well-fitted and in a coordinating color or pattern. A monochromatic sweat suit can create a sleek and cohesive look.
    • Choose the Right Footwear: Pair your outfit with sneakers or casual ankle boots for a sporty yet chic look. White sneakers are a versatile choice that goes well with many outfits.
  • Trench Coats Styled Dressy
    • Choose a High-Quality Trench Coat: Invest in a well-made trench coat with a classic design. Opt for a neutral color like beige, black, or navy, as they are versatile and can easily be dressed up.
    • Dress in Monochromatic or Neutral Tones: Create a sophisticated look by wearing monochromatic or neutral-toned clothing underneath the trench coat. A sleek black dress, a tailored suit, or a neutral blouse and trousers can work well.
    • Experiment with Length: Trench coats come in various lengths, from knee-length to full-length. Choose the length that best suits your body type and the formality of the occasion. Longer trench coats tend to look more dressy.

  • Denim Jackets Styled Casual
    • Start with a classic, well-fitted denim jacket. Opt for a versatile medium or light wash, as they tend to work well for casual looks.
    • Pair your denim jacket with a plain white or neutral-colored t-shirt for a timeless, casual combination. A simple tee adds comfort and a relaxed vibe to your outfit.
    • Go for jeans or casual trousers. You can wear your denim jacket with jeans for a classic denim-on-denim look. If you prefer more variety, consider casual knit skirts or even sweat pants. The key is to maintain a relaxed fit in the bottom half of your outfit.
    • Sneakers are an excellent choice for a casual denim jacket outfit. Classic white sneakers, high end fashion sneakers, or casual boots can all work well. Denim jackets come in various fits, from classic to oversized. Choose a fit that suits your personal style and body type. An oversized jacket can give your outfit a more relaxed and laid-back appearance.
  • Denim Jackets Styled Dressy
    • Opt for a well-fitted, structured denim jacket in a darker wash, as it tends to look more dressy. Look for one with minimal distressing or embellishments.
    • A denim jacket can be worn over a dress to create a dressy-casual contrast. Choose a stylish, elegant dress that complements the denim jacket, such as a wrap dress, a fitted mini dress, or a midi/maxi dress.
    • Elevate your outfit with sophisticated footwear. Heeled ankle boots, pumps, or strappy sandals can instantly dress up your look. Choose shoes that match the formality of your dress.
