Shopping For New Outerwear This Season? Here Are My Favorite Statement Coats

Here's to the official cold weather line up.

Style

My favorite time of year, coat season, is officially warming up and I’m looking forward to bringing the hottest looks this fall/winter. Getting a late start, it took me a while to narrow down my top preferences and decide which of these 2021 outerwear trends I’ll be wearing this year and hopefully next. From puffers to long line trench coats, it feels like the options are limitless when stalking the net for your next purchase but it's the styles that stand the test of time that make it all worth it.


Start early when building your seasonal wardrobe, guaranteeing first dibs on the flyest styles before they’re gone. Also keep in mind, functionality, design, and comfort are necessary requirements when securing the shopping bag. For a few everyday outfit ideas, here are the coats I’ve recently added to my cold weather line up.

Leather Puffer

It was love at first sight when I spotted this chocolate brown puffer coat. Elevating the darker tones, I opted for a slinky leopard print dress and black leather boots. Planning a quick morning trip to the corner cafe before taking care of today’s business, I threw on a sleek cap to top off this look.

Long-Line Trench

Being that green is my favorite color I had to keep the love going while looking for new additions to my closet. Long-line trench coats are going strong this year but it's the color and design that cause a selection of styles to stand out from the rest. Paired with printed denim and black boots for a sharp contrast, next time I want to try wearing muted tones allowing the jacket to speak for itself.

Sherpa Aviator

High on the hottest trends list this season are aviator jackets lined with contrasting sherpa. Quirky and fun, I love this two-toned faux leather and shearling combination. Keeping it light and colorful, I added a soft green trouser along with a cropped cream knit top complete with multi-panel boots.

I’ve never been a foundation girl. Truthfully, I typically stay away from it because it can break out my skin, and it’s tough to find a shade that fits. I have yellow undertones with a sprinkle of hyperpigmentation from previous acne struggles. Foundations with yellow undertones don’t seem to have it all the way together yet. In my experience, the foundations always give banana-hued vibes. I usually purchase two foundations and mix to find my perfect shade, which isn’t always ideal for my wallet.
