12 Transitional Outerwear Pieces to Love

Erica,

In prepping one’s fall wardrobe, there is arguably no more crucial element than your outerwear, so I am pleased to see you are seeking to find some great options. Having made a mental note of a few—okay, more than a few—jackets for the upcoming season, I consider it my fashionable duty to dispense them to you.

Looking to the runways—where else?—I am loving the look of colored coats as shown at Celine and Nina Ricci. Worn along with other bold hues, they will take a color blocked ensemble to new heights! Another strong outerwear choice for fall is obviously a leather jacket, only this season instead of going for a classic black option, I recommend trying an updated take on the trend, like a hot red or distressed brown style. The same goes for blazers—see the timeless silhouette with new eyes and play with unexpected textures of velvet and lamé.

Now, no discussion of outerwear would be complete without mentioning a few faux fur styles, so as a final styling tip for today, I urge you to incorporate either a fuzzy vest or faux fur coat into your fall roundup. No matter what time of day it is or what wardrobe pieces you team them with, they will always look and feel glamorous. xoRZ
