The Perfect Cold Weather Outfit Topper
A statement coat is an amazing way to add flare to a basic style. Especially in the colder months when we start seeing rain and gloomy weather, all I want to do is put on a comfortable outfit and stay warm. Faux fur coats, teddy jackets, wool trenches, and pieces with a shearling accent are perfect for the cozy chic vibe that I will be living in until spring.
Check out some of my favorite statement cold weather toppers below!
The Faux Fur Coat
The faux fur coat is without a doubt, the sassiest of the cold weather outfit toppers. Faux fur will never be out of style, which make these pieces such a good staple for your closet. I love adding a faux fur coat to an all black outfit and letting the coat stand on its own. They're perfect from day to night as well (I would add a pair of glittery earrings to add bit of glam for a night time look). Check out my picks below!
The Teddy Coat
Teddy coats have always been a fan favorite following the rise of the I AM GIA teddy coat seen on the likes of Bella & Gigi Hadid, Emily Ratajowski, and essentially every other fashion girl on Instagram. We all jumped at the opportunity to look chic but also feel wrapped in an incredibly comfortable blanket at the same time. Take a look below at some of my favorites!

The Wool Trench
Perhaps the most professional and elegant of the bunch, the wool trench is a piece every person should have in his or her closet. The perfect way to stay warm, look chic, and keep people guessing whether you are wearing pajamas underneath it or not. Definitely kidding, however, these coats are a sure fire way to add sophistication to any outfit. I love the trend of pairing these pieces with a cute co-ord sweatsuit or something simple like jeans and a white t shirt.

The Shearling Effect
Faux shearling coats are having a huge moment this winter. They are perfect if you are going for a neutral look, with many of the styles being offered in tans, whites and various shades of beige. These give off such a great balance of casual, yet extremely put together and stylish. I would pair with light wash jeans or even an all white + tan look.
