Are you the type of person where you always grab that one black coat when it’s super cold out, even when you have like 5 other jackets or coats to choose from?
Well, that’s me. I always gravitate to that one black coat in my closet when the temperature drops down, because it just goes with everything in my wardrobe as well as helps conceal all of those many layers I have under my coat.
And even though black is great for mixing and matching and hiding the many sweaters and hoodies I put on to keep me warm. It’s so basic! Everybody wears it when you go to the mall, the grocery store or down the street, and they all pretty much look like a copycat coat clone, which is so boring you know?
So that’s why I decided to make a post for all of you that can relate to only wearing that basic black coat in the colder months, since I’m going to be sharing my personal picks of stand out outerwear. Because these are not like your regular degular black coats or jackets, but jackets and coats that actually have a lot more flare, style and most importantly warmth, to keep you toasty and stylish for when it’s cold out.
So check out a couple of my top outerwear picks, that’s so much more than your basic coat or jacket.
Denim jacket with fur
Ok, so starting with the lighter jacket first…let’s talk about how cute this denim jacket is?
I don’t know what kind of genius thought to put fur on the collars, but it sure was a brilliant idea! It just instantly gives the denim jacket so much more life, spunk and interest, and really makes it stand apart from your average denim jacket that you normally see in the stores.
And due to this denim jacket being a bit thinner than a full-on, wool coat, it’s great for if you live in a warmer climate during the Fall or Winter time, since it’s not super bulky or heavy for when you have to go outside.
So if you want a light jacket that has a bit of personality, try out this denim jacket, because I think it would be the perfect lil piece to sport when it’s slightly nippy out.
Oversized moto jacket
Now this second one is like a moto jacket, gone better, since it’s quite oversized, slouchie and in a gorgeous dusty pink color that you don’t see many moto jackets come in.
It’s also great for layering compared to your average, fitted moto jacket, since it’s quite oversized. Meaning you could easily add a thicker sweater or a hoodie underneath it, without looking like a over stuffed turkey that’s trying not to burst. Haha!😁
Making it wonderful to wear when you’re really trying to stay warm yet cute at the same time.
Just about any printed coat will make you stand out, but a leopard coat will make you stand out even more.
That’s why this one that’s from Asos (which is a great store for coats if you couldn’t tell) is perfect for making you look different, because people’s eyes are going to go straight to that gorgeous print.
Yes, it may be a bit much for some people’s taste, but anybody who is looking to add a bit of sass to their Fall or Winter outerwear, would love this, because it is such a looker.
Plus, if you pair it with some oversized sunglasses you’ll literally look like a celebrity.😎
So this coat is for the gal that wants a coat that stands out, but doesn’t want anything that’s too busy in its design. And that’s what I feel like the sherling coat does.
It’s pretty simple, but different compared to the typical black, peacoat or toggle coat that you see most people opt for, since it still has a look that will place you outside of the box.
It’s also cool because this particular style is starting to become more trendy, but at the same time isn’t super trendy where you’re seeing it on everyone when you go to the grocery store.
Which of course makes it a great-coat to try out this season, if you’re looking for something a bit different but current at the same time.
How many people do you really see wear a silver-ish, matalic coat? Nobody!
And if you do…it’s very few.
That’s why I picked out this coat to put as another stand out coat, because that metallic shade is such a stand out color. That slight iridescent gleam to it, will flash a different color every time you pass by the light, and will no doubt catch someone’s eye when you’re walking by.
And even though it’s slightly bubbly and kind of full looking, it’s not super bubbly (like those ugly puffer coats that are super popular right now) since it’s pretty proportional looking.
Just make sure to pair it with a fitted bottom to really balance everything out, if you don’t want to look like the Michelin Man.
What’s more than a “look at me” coat than a fur coat?
I mean, how fierce is this sucker? It’s so boujee and sassy and everything confidant. It’s one of those coats you put on and instantly feel like a queen.
I would personally pair this sucker with a sweater, a cabby hat, some faux leather leggings and some sick, red ankle boots and I would look fly as heck.
If you really want to stand out during the Fall or Winter time, then this red fur jacket should be your go-to, because it will automatically make you look like a million bucks.
It is so out there and I love it!💕
Ok, so that concludes my top picks for stand out outerwear for the Fall or Winter time! Of course there are a lot more other jackets and coats that are far more eccentric than these, but I wanted to pick out pieces that were for the most part, practical but different from your normal button-up black jacket or coat.
I just hope it gave you some new ideas for outerwear, and hopefully inspired you to step outside the box for these chiller days.
