Fall is here, and you’re scouring your wardrobe day in and day out. Temperatures are dropping… how do you commute to work, run errands or sit through an al fresco brunch when you’re freezing? Though a cold front is on the horizon, it doesn’t mean you have to panic about sacrificing style for warmth. Keep reading for three takes on integrating outerwear into your daily rotation in the most elevated way possible.
Go Monochrome

Burberry 2016 Sandringham Coat; Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé Bag; Loro Piana Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater

If dark, early mornings have you struggling to get out of bed, a full monochrome look provides the perfect formula when you’ve slept through your alarm. A trench à la Burberry is always an essential fall staple, but extend its level of polish with a turtleneck and loose trousers to match. While logo belt bags have recently been a popular choice for staying chic on the go, up the cool factor by securing it cross-body for some street-style edge.
Layer Up

Think there’s no possible way to wear a dress in the fall? Think again. From Prada to Balenciaga, layers on layers on layers were all over this season’s runways. Make it your own with a mix of patterns, textures and colors, and get unconventional by topping off the perfect 9-to-5 blazer with a practical puffer. Technical fabrics are having a moment, and the juxtaposition of trim suiting and quilting creates an unexpectedly refined look. Don’t forget the carry-all-cum-statement-bag for all your necessities.
Leather Weather

Chanel Logo Belt; Hermès Leather Knee-Length Coat; Balenciaga 2018 Tweed Boots

While a leather jacket is consistently praised for its versatility and rock’n’roll vibe, few consider the leather coat, its elegant cousin. With its signature sheen, a bold and buttery leather coat is the ultimate way to ward off winter. Pick a vibrant hue, button up and throw on a pair of jeans and some standout booties (we vote for tweed, one of our favorite fabrics of the season). The pièce de résistance? An over-the-top logo belt from Gucci or Chanel to tie everything together.
