The Luxurious Coat
Statement outerwear has been trending in women’s collections for years, from faux fur chubbies to plaid trenchcoats, but it wasn’t until last year that we saw men trying it out. In lieu of standard-issue parkas and puffers, guys invested in plush furs, jewel tone toppers, and even couture-like tailored coats—perhaps an elegant response to the streetwear that’s still everywhere. For further proof, consider the gorgeous coats in Haider Ackermann’s final Berluti collection, or the glossy, rounded Astrakhan coat at Dior Men pre-fall.
Get Your Leather On
A leather jacket is practically the inverse of a trend: It’s an item you’re meant to wear for years and years, and it actually gets better with age. Maybe that’s why men and women are returning to classic, vaguely ’70s-ish leather jackets in shades of black and brown. Nine times out of 10, they’ve got a turtleneck underneath, too. It’s a look that makes a statement while remaining timeless—an ideal combination for those of us who’ve already done the statement-coat and puffer thing.
