I do love pumpkin lattes and football, but the thing I get most excited about when the temperature drops is definitely coat shopping! When it comes to fall fashion, the coat is the ultimate staple item. A good coat will carry you all the way through to winter, and look amazing with almost anything in your wardrobe. But finding the perfect coat isn’t always easy. Since coat shopping can definitely be a bit of a challenge, I decided to streamline the process for all of us! Here are three key styles to keep on your radar this season…
Burberry Brit Stone Cotton Trench Coat  | A.P.C. Ultimate Waxed Cotton Trench Coat  | Ted Baker London Kolome Cotton Trench Coat | SheInside Beige Double Collar Trench Coat 
The trench coat is a worthy investment piece—it’s practically guaranteed to be in style year after year!
Rachel Comey Shasta Coat  | Girl by Band of Outsiders Cocoon Coat | J. Crew Stadium-Cloth Cocoon Coat  | Topshop ‘Crombie’ Mixed Media Coat 
The cocoon coat is my favorite au courant pick for 2012. I adore its ladylike vibe.
By Malene Birger Howenda Parka With Fur Hood | Steven Alan Seaside Parka  | H&M Parka  | Topshop Fur Lined Parka 
I can’t get enough of the military-inspired looks that are popping up this season! Plus, the parka just might be the coziest coat out there.
What’s your favorite outerwear style this season?
