Layer Your Coat

During the brisk months ahead, It’s recommended that you build your outfit around your outerwear. To show you how it’s done, I’m peeling back the layers of 7 different coat-centric looks.

layercoat-3

A bold evening coat looks great with a cocktail dress, but try taking it out of its element with a pair of worn-in boyfriend jeans and a knit cap.

Alice + Olivia Shawl Collar Coat ($898); Joe’s Jeans Tux Tee Shirt ($88); Big Star Rolled Slim Jeans ($142); Gap Chevron Hat ($20); Loeffler Randall Rider Bag($650); Bruno Magli Kitten Heels ($595).

layercoat-1

A sleeveless plaid coat serves as an excellent layering piece over a jacket. Balance the coat’s longer length with a sleek biker jacket that rests at the hips.

Phillip Lim Cape Vest ($895); Phillip Lim Biker Jacket ($1,695); Chaser Tank ($60); Blank NYC Skinny Jeans ($88); BCBG MAXAZRIA Knit Hat ($68); Annelise Michelson Necklace ($420); Rag & Bone Pilot Bag ($925); Dolce Vita Quid Heels ($209).

layercoat-7

The peacoat is an outerwear crowd pleaser, it goes with everything. Since the piece itself is a bit understated, add interest to your look with a mix of textures and prints.

A.L.C. Cannady Peacoat ($795); LOFT Stripe Sweater Tee ($40); Joe’s Jeans Dandy Woven Shirt ($168); Lover Mini Skirt ($400); A.P.C.Chain Strap Bag ($620); HUE Opaque Tights ($14); Giuseppe Zanotti Boots ($1,895).

layercoat-6

The long and short of it: an ankle-grazing coat functions as the perfect balance for a minidress and combat boots.

Mara Hoffman Coat (similar style here); Guess Denim Skirtall($108); Rag & Bone Marigold Top ($290); The 2 Bandits Wharf Earrings ($128); Rachel Zoe Montana Backpack ($395); Burberry Silk Scarf ($495, similar style here); HUE Luster Tights ($14); Rag & Bone Boots ($595).

layercoat-2

Pink is the new black, so treat this fuzzy coat as a neutral with washed-out skinny jeans and a muted plaid shirt.

H&M Coat ($149); Equipment Cardigan ($318); April, May Top ($209, similar style here); McGuire Boyfriend Jeans ($218, 877.746.7267, similar style here); The Elder Statesman Cashmere Beanie ($270); DKNY Crossbody Bag ($265, similar style here); Paul Smith Loafers ($437).

layercoat-4

The quickest way to toughen up a menswear coat: add a biker vest on top. To further the look’s no holds barred vibe, throw on a sheer lace blouse and metallic heels.

Tibi Moto Vest ($950, 212.226.5852, similar style here); BLK DNM Coat ($1,195); 7 For All Mankind Lace Top ($218); Triarchy Tie Dye Jeans ($245, similar style here); Gucci  Sunglasses ($345); French Connection Bag ($348); Fendi T-Strap Pumps($1,190).

layercoat-5

Hit on the season’s grunge look, while simultaneously indulging your daring side, by pairing a faux fur coat with a plaid oxford, zipper-detail skinnies, and printed ankle boots.

Opening Ceremony Cocoon Coat ($795); Juicy Couture Sheer Plaid Blouse ($108); Paige Denim Skinny Coated Jeans ($269); Chloè Tote ($2,320); Shoe Cult Chelsea Boots ($120).

Are you Coat-Centric?
