Trend 101: The Coat
Get the Look: Similar (Coat), Similar (Overalls), (Nike Sneakers)
The temperatures are starting to drop in the Big Apple, and so the coat craze has begun! Whether it be graphic print coat from Clover Canyon or something cool and retro inspired from up and coming designer Antipodium, each fall/winter season there are so many designers that put a smile on my face with their unique statement coats. So what are the biggest coat trends of the season you ask? Well, I've been spotting a lot of plaid inspired coats, a modern take on a classic trench coat, beige coats with a classic cut, and bright colored--almost spring colored coats. (ABOVE) I love the layering, and print/style mixing that is going on here. A pair of sneakers, paired with a retro plaid coat, and pair of overalls. How very geek, sporty chic!
Get the Look: Similar (Coat), Similar (T-Shirt)
(1) A classic trench coat with a modern twist. I love the simplicity of this look. It's a look with simple, clear pieces. A white t, a simple knee-length skirt, and kick-ass trench. The shoes are a statement of their own.

(2) Not going to lie, when I first saw this photo I thought the girl modeling was an Olsen sister! Mixing stripes works well, as long as the stripes are all moving in the same direction.

(3) A classic brown coat can be mixed and matched with a variety of pants, shoes, etc,. When you opt for such a simple coat, it's crucial to make the look pop through the usage of different/ unique pieces. In this look I love the shoes and pants. The combination works well and is hip.

(4) The classic girl. This coat is a mix of the 1920s and 50s. This mix is a big trend this season. The coat is given a modern touch with a more simple collar. You can follow similar styling to the classic brown coat look.

(5) Bright colored coats are where it's all at. Wearing a dark colored coat during the colder moths can be super depressing so spicing it up with a pop of color is a must. I love the styling here. A printed skirt, neon vest, black turtle neck, and white heels! Wearing a bright colored coat means going all out.

Absolutely stunning collection of streetstyle you have here. I've been seeing plenty of extremely long coats in runways/street style, but glad they're not being ill-used and overrated yet. xx
