Recently I realized, while getting ready for the day, that I am utterly unprepared for fall. I scurried about, running a few minutes behind, trying to assemble the perfect outfit for the day. When I stepped outside, I froze. No, seriously, it was only 4C compared to the 22C weather it had been just the day before, and I realized if I remained in the outfit I was currently wearing, it would make for a miserably chilly day.
It was at this point that I realized that I am in desperate need of chunky knit sweaters, or a great fall coat to pair with multi-seasonal basics. So, my hunt began. I figured I’m not the only one in this boat. You know, desperately clinging to the warmth of summer and refusing to look outside because of the changing leaves? So I’ve assembled some of the gorgeous fall coats I discovered in my search so we can all be a little better prepared for fall. And, quite honestly, shopping for fall clothes has me a wee bit excited for the cooler weather. Blasphemy, I know.
I’ve always been obsessed with the silhouette of a great cape coat. I mean, who doesn’t feel empowered strutting around in the leaves and your new boots while wearing a cape that is both warm and chic? I’m swooning over this Alice + Olivia gem.
The varsity jacket is a classic for those heading back to school. The perfect combination of tomboy and chic, varsity jackets are versatile, come in a variety of colours and styles, and are perfect for fall. We’re loving this white and black varsity jacket from Nasty Gal, currently on sale.
Leather jackets are a staple for fall. Whether you’re fond of the edgy moto jacket like this vegan one from Shopbop, or this faux leather-trimmed quilted jacket from Ralph Lauren, you’ll be looking effortlessly chic. Pair them with a great pair of booties and your favourite black skinny jeans.
