Whenever a new season hits, we always have to resist the urge to do a total wardrobe clearout and revamp our closets with the latest styles and fashions. But the sad truth is, even when we’re earning cashback from our favorite retailers, we still can’t justify buying a whole new wardrobe each and every season.
Luckily, in the fall and winter months especially, all it takes to give your entire wardrobe a whole new look is a few key outerwear pieces that you can layer over your staple clothing items in order to revamp your style and keep up with the current trends.
To help give you some inspiration, here are a few of our favorite men’s and women’s outerwear pieces for fall 2019 that are easy to pair with your current wardrobe.
1. A faux fur coat
I’m sure you’ve already seen that faux fur and animal print is everywhere this season. In fact, it’s so popular that it’s practically considered a “neutral” in many designers’ fall and winter collections — meaning that you can easily pair faux fur (even animal prints) with just about anything this season.
One of our favorite faux looks this season is an extra shaggy style that’s full of texture. This Michael Kors Collection Faux Fur Coat from Moda Operandi combines trendy ‘80s style and drama in this generous, oversized plush faux coat with an exaggerated shawl collar. Plus, the neutral color means it’s easy to pair with deep fall neutrals, but can also easily be transitioned into rich winter jewel tones.
2. A partition coat
A waterproof, hooded coat is an absolute must this time of the year — especially if you’re located in a cold, consistently-wet city like us here in Detroit. A modern, well-made partition coat is a great option for guys who are looking for something a little more updated than the classic trench coat.
This Arc’teryx Veilance Partition AC Hooded Coat from Browns Fashion is a fashionable option that will have you prepared for any kind of winter weather you might face. Constructed from a waterproof and breathable fabric, the mid-length style features long sleeves, a rear vent, side pockets, and a detachable snap-buttoned hood, which makes it the perfect option to bring with you well into the rainy spring season.
3. A denim jacket
A great jean jacket can easily be a year-round staple in your wardrobe. In fact, it’s usually our go-to layering piece over summer dresses on cool evenings. However, we love the idea of a denim jacket that has fleece or faux fur detailing to really bring those cold-weather vibes to an otherwise classic outfit.
This oversized Madewell Jean Jacket in Donaway Wash: Sherpa Edition is the perfect reimagined denim jacket for autumn, with a quilted lining in the sleeves and cozy sherpa fur everywhere else. Not only does it add a little bit of cozy texture to your outfit, but it will also keep you much warmer than your classic jean jacket as the weather starts to turn.
4. A fleece vest
The key to carrying over your summer wardrobe into the fall and winter months is layering. For example, pairing your favorite go-to tee with a heavier layer that you can drape over top, like a zip-up, a cardigan, or our personal favorite, a sharp looking vest that can be dressed up or dressed down.
The Boa Fleece Vest by Gramicci from East Dane is super soft to the touch and cozy to wear, making it the perfect layer for mid-season styling. The micro-fleece fabric is not only a great texture addition to any outfit, but it also helps to lock in the heat during the colder months, and the funnel neck adds protection during the rainy or snowy days.
5. A leather biker jacket
Our last pick for an outerwear piece that will help you update your wardrobe is a classic black leather biker jacket. We personally love a slightly oversized fit during the cold weather months, so you can easily layer chunky-knit sweaters or big blanket scarves underneath and still feel comfortable.
The Goosecraft Leather Biker Jacket above from Asos is perfect for throwing over your favorite summer dress to give it an edgier fall look, or you can pair it with jeans, a tee shirt, and your favorite fall booties for a day out at the apple orchard. The contemporary zipped cuffs and fastening also are great for adding an extra element of edge to your outfit.
