6 Reasons Why You Need to Invest In (Another) Classic Coat

These photographs make for a compelling case to expand your collection, stat.   

Priyanka Chopra Jonas

 The (faux) fur coat has joined the ranks of cold-weather essentials...and it is at par with icons like the trench coat or classic camel overcoat when it comes to style points and versatility. Mrs Jonas’ black bb is a safe option—it can give any look a luxe upgrade. However, if you are looking for something brighter, casually throw on a fun neon one over a neutral outfit. Go the extra mile by matching your shoes and bag to the coat.

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja

 You definitely need a knee-length coat in your wardrobe...and make it a blazing, bold shade while you are at it. Because it won’t just work as a coat—throw matching pants into the mix, and you have yourself a winter-worthy pantsuit. Or switch the pants for pantyhose to turn it into a cold-weather dress.

Kendall Jenner

A chic, well-tailored, black coat will never disappoint you. You can throw it over your basic white tee-and-jeans combo; pair it with wide-leg pants and bodysuit; or take the ‘model off-duty’ route and wear it over a mini to show off your pins.

Gigi Hadid

 Hailey Bieber is the mayor of Street Styleville. And we love how she shakes things up and makes a simple trench coat look so desirable. This piece is a classic for a reason...and such a great way to add chic to an otherwise basic outfit. But don’t just restrict yourself to the timeless, khaki version—there are two-toned, pleated, textured, bright versions to pick from (as Gigi Hadid proves here).

Nora Fatehi

Yes, soft, sombre hues are mostly reserved for summer...but pastels are the new neutrals. And you know what that means: you need a soft-textured coat in all these princess-y hues for your next brunch. And for a style upgrade allow Nora Fatehi to show you how to soften a tough-girl look with a dusty-rose piece.
