Fall Style: Coat and Jackets and Shawls, Oh My!

Fall weather can vary quite a bit, going from sunny and warm to windy and crisp. You don't want to whip out your heavy winter coat just yet, but your light spring trenches aren't quite right either. While we can't all be like Blair Waldorf and have a different jacket for every outfit, you can add a few more choices to your fall wardrobe so you can fluctuate with the weather. Here are some cute coats that will keep you warm and stylish this fall.

We've already talked about how we love the military look, so just add this one to the list! This navy blue, super cute peacoat is perfect for the fall!

We love this cropped wool coat from Zara as it's sure to keep you warm on a brisk November morning.  Plus, it's more casual than a mid length coat, and looks great with layering! 

If you want to dress it up a little, try this cute little capelet from Anthropologie! We admit, it won't exactly keep you warm, but we just love the colors and the cut so much that we had to include it on our list.  We've recently been considering how to stay warm during an outdoor wedding ceremony, and a cute coat may do just the trick. Wear it with long sleeves or elbow-length gloves and you'll stay warm till death do you part. 

Sticking with the plaid, we love this wrap coat available at Mod Cloth. It has a lovely vintage look to it (think Love Story) and the fleece collar will definitely keep you warm.  This coat has some staying power and we can even see it keeping you warm in the winter months to come.

We just love Mod Cloth! And one of the reasons is for their coat "warmness scale" which tells you what type of weather the coats are suitable for. This charming, mauve coat would be the perfect addition to any fall wardrobe.  It earns a rating of 3 out of 5, meaning perfect for fall or early winter but not quite warm enough to carry you through a blizzard.

Or, if you're feeling a bit more sassy, then opt for a fierce, fitted leather jacket. It's a nice blend of edgy and sexy, and we love the feminine fit and the wide collar. And bonus -- it's on sale! 

And, finally, a similar look is this fur-lined bomber jacket from Top Shop. It has great details and a snug fit, and you can pull up the collar to keep yourself extra warm.

That's a wrap!
