The Fall Coat Guide
Outerwear is undoubtedly the most practical, hard-working purchase of the season—investing in a good coat serves you best in the long run. Below, the most current interpretations of tried-and-true classics.
Robe-style coats have been around forever, which makes sense since they emphasize the waist (particularly handy when layering for warmth). They’re great for daily wear, but it’s at night—when paired with evening trousers and heels—that they really shine.
