Trend to Try: Blazer Coat

It went right from summer to winter here in Philly with about a day of fall in between, and I’m already breaking out my winter coats. While I was roasting the day we shot this look a couple weeks ago, I would be perfectly comfortable in it today.  This blazer coat came in my last Trunk Club, and it’s a great example of the styles trending this fall.

The trend in coats this year is menswear-inspired and a wee bit oversized, and this wool blend blazer coat fits the bill perfectly. I love that it comes in two classic colors (black and charcoal grey) as well as two more vibrant colors (light blue and jade green) for those who want more of a statement coat.

I do believe this coat is slightly too big for me, so I sent it back, but it’s a great choice for anyone who is looking to add a coat that is classic but on trend to her winter wardrobe. I’m wearing the 8, for reference, so I think the 6 would be a better fit.

Also, I found this coat on sale at Lord & Taylor! It comes down to $115.50 with code FRIENDS.

To showcase this gorgeous shade of blue, I wore it over a camel turtleneck and dark wash jeans. For the life of me, I don’t know why I didn’t throw on a necklace. This look definitely calls for long, bold pendant like this or this, or this would work really well with the leopard shoes.

I love how leopard print coordinates with a camel sweater, and these pumps are particularly gorgeous. I’ve had them for several years, and I always wear them when I want to add a bit of drama to an outfit.

I also really love this pair that I picked up recently with a chunky 3″ heel. It’s perfect for those times when I want a leopard pump that’s more walkable.

This bag is also old, but it’s a classic, and I often carry it when I wear leopard shoes. Mine is the larger size of this one, in the cardamom/royal navy.

Not ready for coats yet, or live in an area that doesn’t get that cold? Check out my newly updated Fall Jacket Guide for more lightweight options.

I think this is such a classy look for a fall/winter event once the weather gets cold. My turtleneck is old, but I really like this year’s Halogen cashmere turtleneck in the camel color. It would be less chunky than this one, so a bit of a dressier look, but still totally a classic.
