Everybody always goes on and on about how great fall is — you know, totally obvious stuff like the changing leaves and the crisp air ... And don’t get me wrong, I agree that those things are very nice, but there’s one overlooked item that I’d rate as season's biggest plus: fall coats.
Think about it: Having just one or two chic trenches or stylish bombers in your closet can pull together a wardrobe of autumn outfits, giving even the most basic jeans-and-tee pairing an instant makeover.
Plus lazy weekends have never looked better. Feel like staying in your cat-hair-embellished sweats all day but still leave the house? No problem! Just cover them with a Saint Laurent-inspired leopard coat and you’re instantly transformed into a very different kind of cat lady.
And there are so many options to choose from this season, like a chic denim trench that’s just as comfy and versatile as a jean jacket (but way more elegant). Or an under-$200 camel classic that will be your go-to for years. And then there's a pared-back take on the moto that's so sleek you can wear it into the office.
