Why Classic Fall Coats Are Magic in Your Closet

  • 4371

This week, as I draped a well-loved, almost floor-grazing wool coat over the tired sweatsuit I’ve been wearing on a weekly basis since March, I quickly remembered that coats are practically closet magic. A good fall coat can transform any outfit, and make casual separates (yes, even sweatpants!) look put together instantly. While comfort-first wardrobe staples aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, draping a sleek coat over an outfit, no matter how informal, can make the mundane feel special again.  

This season, the best fall coats go back to basics with classic silhouettes. From timeless trench coats to elegant wool overcoats, getting out of a style rut is easier than you may think. Here, 34 fall coats to help you keep warm, feel put together, and help shake up the monotony of your wardrobe.
