Personal Stylist – A Coat Makes the Outfit

As we wrap up August and head into September, we begin to change from jackets to coats. Starting with a lighter weight, we line up options as the months progress and as the weather gets cooler, the coats get heavier! I’m not just talking about those transitional coats we will wear the majority of time over the next couple of months I’ve also put together options to carry you from early fall to cold winter days of December & January.

Coats are not only functional & weather accommodating attire they can completely change and elevate the most simple outfit. I always say my personal style could be as basic as a white T with a perfect fit jean everyday while rotating through different styles of fabulous outerwear on a regular basis! This philosophy can easily work for both men’s and women’s fashion. This one item ‘outerwear’ can completely change your look! A little tip from the personal stylist :)

Keep in mind you don’t need to be a fashionista wearing the most current outerwear trends – See my picks below for the must have coats of the season (I’ve stayed with classic styles that will last forever) Click the picture to shop the look! Also, don’t miss the Youtube video as well where I’m sharing coats from my personal closet.

The Black Blazer ~ Finding the perfect fit is a must for this look, structured waist and length is key.

The Trench Coach ~ Going from Summer to Fall or Spring to Summer, look no further than the perfect trench. The weight is just right for transitioning into seasons and the style looks great with just about anything!

The Jean Jacket ~ I’ve been wearing the same jean jacket for 20 years! It will never go out of style if you stick to a clean wash and simple cut.

The Leather Jacket ~ Either a clean black leather or a moto jacket style can be a staple item in your wardrobe. The only difference is if your personal style is into more detail. The motto has zippers and hardware were as the other look has simplicity to the look.

The Robe Coat ~ This style can also we called the wrap coat and it can have two different looks. The shorter length with a hood option is perfect from work to casual with sneakers. The other option is the longer style which is perfect for over dresses and suiting keeping with a dressier feel.

The Classic Wool Coat ~ Once we hit December / January a clean classic wool coat is a must for those cold days. You can stick with black or have some fun with a pop of colour like this red version!

Smythe

The Puffer ~ The casual puffer is a cute style and functional if your running errands or running after kids in the park. This one is a fave of mine as it’s only $88 and maintains a fashionable fit.
