Cozy up to fall's most sought after outerwear

10.24.2011 WRITTEN BY Ellie How to Wear, Shopping trends

From chunky sweaters to maxi coats, there are so many great choices in outerwear this fall, it’s hard to know which one will work best for you. To help make the decision a little less daunting and far more thrilling, T+P stylist, Camilla, takes you through the top picks for fall/winter 2011. . .

Chunky Sweaters

A must for every wardrobe.  The chunky sweater is such a versatile piece. It may be the only thing you need or it can be worn under a heavier coat for an extra layer of warmth.  Rachel Pally is known for their insanely comfortable knit jersey pieces and their sweaters are equally as divine.  Chunky Cardigan in black by Rachel Pally ($275).


Oh, how I love a great leather jacket!  This fall, the edgier the leather jacket, the better.  Think slightly distressed leather, zippers and a slight crop.  A piece like this can be worn with jeans or with a fun dress or skirt.  Distressed Leather Moto Jacket by MICHAEL Michael Kors ($398).


The belted coat casts such a great slimming effect.  Be it a short or long version, the effect is the same.  The belted coat is a great choice if you are looking for dressier outerwear.  Two of my picks are the Josie Hooded Jacket in camel by BB Dakota ($130) and the Notched Collar Coat in rust by Ellen Tracy ($278).

Bright Hues

Think brilliant blue, bright yellow, fuchsia, and lipstick red.  A brightly colored coat is a great way to give your muted fall wardrobe a bit of a punch. New York Belted Trench by Kenneth Cole ($106.90).


I love the unexpected presence of a cape.  Pick one up in a great plaid, in winter white wool, or even in the form of a heavy sweater like this one below.  Poncho Sweater by Rachel Pally ($264).


The long, maxi coat is the perfect go to for those extra cold climates.  The maxi is also one of the chicest outerwear choices with its long lines and clean silhouette.  Camel or Black is the perfect color choices for this classic look.  Dedrick Long Overcoat by BB Dakota ($145).
