Nine to Five Essential
This fantastic cobalt blue coat is a great alternative to black or brown.
cobalt jacket, printed trouser, pink sweater, removable Peter Pan collar, black cross-body bag, patent heel, all from H&M
A fuss-free way to wear faux fur, this shorter style is less bulky than a knee-grazing length, but still offers a glamourous look.
Tip: When wearing faux fur, skip any other big statement pieces and opt for more classic silhouettes (like a shift dress, or timeless trouser).
printed dress shirt, black skinny pant, orange skinny belt, patent oxford pump with tassel, cross-body leather two-tone bag, all from Ann Taylor
Work week overcoat
This versatile coat can be worn to the office and on the weekend. For commuters, the storm flap adds additional wind and rain protection but can be completely zipped out for a dressier occasion.
jacket, tailored slim fit pant, shirt, luxury blend burgundy sweater, striped silk knit tie, dress shoe, all from Banana Republic
Casual Weekend Look: The Wearable Cape
The main feature: The small sleeves makes it easier to wear and move in.
Tip: Style with elbow grazing gloves if you want to make it dressier
navy cape, striped turtleneck, straight leg denim, purple wristlet, leopard flat, all from Ann Taylor
The Evening Coat: Peplum Detail
A great example of how seasonal trends are making their way to outerwear
peplum jacket with belt, blue sweater, sequin skirt, bow chain bag, patent/suede bootie, leather gloves, cream beret, removable fur collar, all from H&M
A slightly more polished look, this coat has a subtle safari-inspiration with its multi pockets. It can be worn casual with a hoodie, or for dressier occasions with a button-up.
jacket, navy sweater, shirt, chino, lace-up boots, scarf, all from Banana Republic
