Sometimes when the weather forces you to wear a particular item—in this case, a winter coat—it can seem a little less like a fashion moment and a little more like a burden. But it doesn’t have to be that way! On the contrary, for today’s Ways to Wear story, we have rounded up three oh-so stylish ensembles for you to check out and take inspiration from for the rest of winter. So, without further ado, here is your primer on how to make the most of your winter coat.
A trench coat is definitely a classic winter item, but we love the way Miranda has given hers a contemporary twist by pairing it with skinny jeans and leopard loafers. Not only that, this is perfect for those days where you have a mix of meetings and errands. To work this look, pair ASOS’s Classic Trench Coat ($97) or Walter’s Keanu Asymmetrical Zip-Front Trench Coat ($138) with pieces like Textile Elizabeth and James’ Debbie Skinny Jeans ($238), Charles Philip’s Sheila Leopard Loafers ($135), and Z Spoke’s Eartha Hinged Top Handle Satchel ($475).
You should definitely take notes from Jessica this winter and try an army jacket. They have a cool, casual vibe, making them super versatile. You can do as Jessica has done and pair them with equally casual pieces or you can use your army jacket to balance out dressier pieces. To give this look a try, grab a coat like Veda’s Jones Cargo Trench Coat ($590) or Sanctuary’s Army Jacket ($158) (Jessica’s actual jacket!) and then pair it with Hudson’s Nico Skinny Jeans ($106), AllSaint’s Jules Biker Boots ($275), and American Apparel’s Leather Satchel ($58).
A camel-colored wool coat has a smart vibe and should be worked accordingly. We like the way Kate has opted to pair hers with black pieces. The result is an outfit that has a sophisticated feel but is still down-to-earth enough to be worn while running errands or taking a flight. Ready to try? Simply grab a coat like Michael Michael Kors’ Reefer Felt Coat ($210) or Victoria’s Secret’s Wool Flare Coat ($126) and pair it with Gap’s Ribbed Turtleneck ($34), black jeans, and KG by Kurt Geiger’s Winkle Pointed Buckle Flat Ankle Boots ($141).
