Coat Check

Forget lumpy padding, synthetic fabrics and clumsy zips. This season’s coats celebrate effortless elegance and understated luxury with classic, well-cut silhouettes styled for on-trend impact—so wonderfully versatile.

Houndstooth check will never go out of style. Balenciaga via The Store does a classy houndstooth coat in a classic brown-and-tan weave. Team it with a sexy LBD—something like this Helmut Lang via VooStore piece—plus big, bold jewelry to nail that uptown chic. We chose an Oscar de la Renta necklace and earrings (Cadenzza) teamed with bracelets by ALEX AND ANI. Otherwise, Odeeh turns up the color on classic monochromes with its red and blue houndstooth-check jacket. Another update on the country casual look is to turn it inside out— literally: this black lacy slip dress from & Other Stories is worn over Alex Eagle’s creamy blouse for some flirty fun. Finish with statement jewelry, such as these rings by Nina Ricci and Oscar de la Renta (both at Cadenzza), plus Versace’s stunning drop earrings.

You can’t beat pillar-box red to brighten up a winter’s day—it probably explains why it has long been a favored color for coats. Vetements via The Store does a lovely crisp design that teams brilliantly with a Joseph via VooStore checked dress slipped over Manloulan’s black crystallized high-neck dress. Kate Spade earrings and an eye-catching Oscar de la Renta cocktail ring (both at Cadenzza) complete the look. Reflecting fall’s hues, mustard yellow is another classic from the coat palette. Highlight this style from & Other Stories with a shimmering golden necklace by ALEX AND ANIand sparkling tights by Wolford. A black Wolford dress and William Fan sweater provide the backdrop.

Try layering coats for clever outdoor-to-indoor cold-weather dressing. Jacquemus via The Store does a soft gray design that can be shrugged over Malene Birger’s stylish white blazer. Add a splash of color with this mustard turtleneck from & Other Stories, matched with Marni’s floral brooch. Versace earrings add a glint of gold. A sculptural silhouette also benefits from some artfully placed embellishment. A black Acne Studios coat has high-contrast drama when teamed with a brilliant white shirt featuring oversize cuffs from Jacquemus via The Store. But it’s the sparkling Gucci serpent that sends it stellar. A Marbella ear cuff echoes the brooch. Rings are by Oscar de la Renta and Nina Ricci(both at Cadenzza).

The blazer: a standout wardrobe staple that can be dressed up or down. We matched this black one from Jacquemus with Antonia Goy pants. A nude sweater from APC via VooStore and a checked shirt from Zara keep the palette restrained and sophisticated, all the better to show off some fabulous statement jewelry—cascading earrings by Oscar de la Renta and a dazzling ring by Versace (both at Cadenzza). Meanwhile Zara’s rich wine-colored outfit is effortlessly elegant for evenings. The only thing this look needs is a crisp white blouse (this one is by Joseph via VooStore) and some sparkling highlights, such as a necklace, earrings and ring by Versace at Cadenzza.
