This season has taken a rare turn: fashion and function are beautifully united. With a focus on tried-and-true styles, fall 2010’s jackets and coats are heirlooms in the making. A rundown of the season’s top styles:
Fur & Faux Fur
Glamour girls rejoice: fur and faux fur are back. For a polished ’50s debutante flair, pair a cropped fur jacket (we love this one, from Joie clothing) with skinnies and pumps. If ’70s diva is more your style, opt for a heavy fur collar (Elizabeth and James and Shipley & Halmos have great options).
Field and utility jackets are still going strong. The ideal weight for fall, these adaptable must-haves lend a practical, ready-for-anything vibe to everything from destroyed Current/Elliott jeans to a Hervé Léger dress. Look to Veda and Bird by Juicy Couture for on-trend interpretations of the style, or Vince and Rag & Bone for more faithful renditions.
Shearling bomber jackets are the perfect summary of fall’s adventurous, vintage feel. Equally at home on a cattle drive as it is on Park Avenue, ADAM’s tailored-yet-tough aviator jacket (pictured) is a piece you’ll wear for years to come. If you’d rather channel Rebel Without a Cause, Madewell or Acne clothing offer biker jackets that will keep you cozy, whatever your fall adventures may be.
