STYLE REPORT: Fall 2014 Coat Trends

{ GUEST BLOGGER } Sarah Murray of Fashion Capsule

Temperatures have started to dip and retail shops are awash with holiday cheer. That means it’s time to abandon our jean jackets and embrace these cold weather toppers.

The sportswear trend is exemplified in the parka. The jacket can be plaid and lined with teddy fleece for a casual feel or fur and satin finishes make it luxurious.

Oversized silhouettes are still on trend. Capes that are tailored are equally as cool as a woolen blanket version. The freshest way to wear an oversized topper is the dressing gown style with a cinched waist.

Masculine styling is classically represented in the trench coat. Fall 2014 sees it updated with cropped styles in houndstooth and cape/trench hybrids.

Now all you have to do is add a pair of statement earrings and you are ready for the big chill.
