The mild/chilly weather constitutes the need for layers – however that doesn’t necessarily mean a coat. You could take this tween-weather fashion one of two ways: Layer lighter layers atop one another (i.e. a long-sleeved top, tunic, blazer, scarf and gloves), or wear a light coat for that extra layer, and a bit of “haute decor”.
Personally, as much as I love layers, I also adore a statement coat. Here are several that I feel really do make…a statement. These are all from the UK retailer Karen Millen. I adore the lace detailing of the black trench – I’ve been really into lace lately and I love the combination of this romantic accessory used in a day-to-day fashion. Following that is a trench that shouts out one of my all-time favorite colors: Kelly Green. Just gorgeous. Rounding it up we have Italian leather and suede in a fitted bomber jacket. This is ideal for when you need something more than just a blazer, but with a similar shape. With a jacket like that, you can go from your commute, to the coffee shop, to the office, and back again without ever having to de-layer!
