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 think it's fair to say that most of us long to reach that place where the money resides, especially in the present times when life is so uncertain and people are likely to lose their jobs at any given moment. On the other hand, perhaps thanks to the plethora of entrepreneurs that document their journeys on social media, there's the sense that abundant financial wealth seems more accessible now than it ever has before. With that said, despite all the step-by-step guides to becoming rich available on the market, we can still hear the same question echoing in our heads: How do I get to the bag, though?

There you find peace, tranquility, and solace. And because it does, you shouldn't be afraid to elevate the way you think about it and how you make it work for you. Dare to do something different as you set your intentions for the rest of the year. Turn your home into a place that takes care of you.
