Even if you aren’t ready to swap your bikinis for sweaters yet, it’s time to start getting your wardrobe ready for the upcoming fall/winter season. Trust me, you will really appreciate having those pieces on hand once the temperatures begin to drop. And that’s going to happen sooner than you think. Quite frankly, we are less than a week away from the official start of the fall (it’s September 22nd that the fall equinox arrives this year), which means that you should really consider starting to prepare your wardrobe for the new season now. The best place to start? Arguably, the outerwear section.
Every fashion girl knows that come fall/winter season, her coats and jackets become the key parts of her outfits. The thing is that during the fall/winter season, it’s your outerwear that speaks first. And let’s be honest, when draped in a fabulous coat, your outfit underneath doesn’t really matter. However, not all fall/winter outerwear is made equal and, just like your coat or jacket can make your outfit, it can also break it. That’s why you really want to choose your outerwear wisely. Luckily, some outerwear styles just go well with everything. These are the so-called staples that everyone should have in their wardrobe. From the effortlessly cool leather jacket to the ever-classic puffer, these are the top 3 outerwear staples for the fall/winter season.
Ask any stylist about their favorite piece of outerwear, and many will say it’s their leather jacket. Being around since the early 1900s, a leather jacket has long established itself as a wardrobe staple. And it couldn’t be otherwise, because it pairs well with just about everything in one’s wardrobe and can be worn all year round, no matter the weather. Just try to name a piece of outerwear that is as versatile? Right, it’s pretty difficult. That’s why a leather jacket is a must-have in every woman’s (and men’s) wardrobe. And if you are going to invest into one, consider checking out beloved brands like The Jacket Maker that offers a large variety of quality leather jackets at affordable prices. My personal favorite – the Alison Black Leather Biker Jacket. Cut into a classic biker style, this is a leather jacket that will look good with everything from dresses to pants. By the way, The Jacket Maker also offers a made-to-measure service, which means that you can get your leather jacket customized to your own proportions, which comes in very handy if your size is outside the standard range.
When it comes to outerwear for the fall/winter season, a duster coat is a timeless staple and it so coincides that it’s one of the biggest trends for Fall/Winter 2022. Yes, it seems like our favorite designers were in the mood to revisit the classic silhouette for the upcoming fall/winter season and it looks like they did a pretty good job, as FW22 duster coats are more versatile than ever. It may come as a surprise to some, but duster coats don’t have to come at floor-grazing lengths. In fact, a coat is considered a duster if its length hits at least a few inches below the knee. This means that when it comes to shopping for a duster coat, your options are literally endless. Want to keep it cool and classy? Then go for a timeless black duster coat. In a mood for something fun and different? A bright-colored duster is not going to disappoint. Coming in nearly every single color and texture you can imagine, from stylish wool coats to ultra-long trenches, a duster coat is a timeless addition to any fall/winter wardrobe.
While leather jackets and duster coats are both incredible picks for the fall/winter season, they won’t necessarily save you on the days when the temperatures hit below freezing. Surely, there will be a couple of days like these in the upcoming fall/winter season, so you really want to have a piece of outerwear on your hand that while being stylish, won’t let you freeze to death. The best piece of outerwear one could get for freezing temperatures? Arguably a puffer jacket. These often come insulated with feathers, or synthetic fibers which makes them excellent picks for cold temperatures. Not even to mention that these days puffer jackets come in every silhouette, color and material imaginable, which means that you should be easily able to find one that would satisfy your style preferences. Or, you could also get a Re-Nylon Belted Puffer Jacket from Prada and be like one of the it-girls.
