How Do You Wear Coats Before Winter? Cut The Sleeves Off.

Fall is on its way–can you feel it? Although the official start of fashion’s “new year” isn’t until September 23, that shouldn’t stop you from trying on some of the upcoming season’s best trends. And what better way to kick things off than with a new piece of outerwear? Sure, you can turn to your moto-style leather jacket and call it a day but this fall calls for coats—even if there isn’t one drop of snow on the ground. Have designers gone mad? Nope. They found a way to make them look chic and temperature-friendly… by taking off the sleeves. We’re calling them sleeveless coats but you can also find them under the names of long vests or gilets. The lengths vary, which means you can find one that just skims mid-thigh or sweeps just above the floor at your ankles. And materials range from cozy wooly knits to lightweight fabric blends.

We love how they look paired with a button-down blouse and tailored pants, or even thrown on a cocktail dress for that upcoming wedding or evening work event. It’s a new style that’ll shake up your wardrobe and most likely you’ll want to wear it through the next season, too. The styling trick? Take that favorite moto-style leather jacket of yours and layer it underneath. Now you have a winter-ready coat with makeshift sleeves in a cool contrasting leather.

Check out more fall trends: burgundy booties, powder blue, and our own fall must-haves.
