Shop now: The most stylish coats to layer up and stay warm in on your winter holiday
Do a quick search on Instagram and you'll find list after list of classic jackets and coats to wear for the autumn/winter season. Aside from its versatility, the outerwear will always withstand time and trends. However, as we gear up for our end-of-the-year trips, we're taking a different route by opting for the most eye-catching outerwear that'll give our holiday get-ups the pizzazz they need (and should have). Aside from making a stylish statement, it also serves as a great pick-me-up for the cold and dull weather. They're definitely an investment worth making.
If you'd like to take this season's trends into consideration, leopard prints are the way to go. The shearling coat from Givenchy, in particular, radiates that edgy-cool allure—reminiscent of the moody glamour of the '90s nightlife. We love the detachable belt that helps cinch the heavy piece. Other trendy options include vinyl and patent leather jackets (from Miu Miu, Marni, and Red Valentino) that have been a street style favourite. Tip: Layer it over separates in the same texture for a statement-making finish. Trench-wise, Burberry and Versace gave the classic outerwear a trendy twist this season with baroque-print panels and reversible details, but if you're going to a colder climate, the furry coats from Max Mara and Loewe will keep you warm—and keep your style in check. Other pieces that caught our eyes include Mansur Gavriel's iridescent jacket (swoon!), and Red Valentino's semi-transparent raincoat. Regardless of your style, there will be an option for you, and a new coat (or three) is a worthy investment.
