Rebecca Taylor Dishes On Her New Outerwear Collection (We’re Obsessed!)
We recently sat down with designer Rebecca Taylor to discuss her new outerwear expansion, of which our editors are entirely obsessed (can we talk about the cocoon coat with the blue shearling collar!?!). The designer dished on her bestselling moto jacket, her inspiration for the new styles, and some super-helfpul advice for the SHEfinds reader on choosing her new coat for fall. Thank you, Rebecca! Read it now: SHEfinds: Your leather moto jacket is so cult! Tell us about it. Rebecca Taylor: Our leather jacket is garment washed, which really offers the customer the softest supple leather, and it’s lined with jersey making it extremely comfortable. SF: Is the popularity of the moto one of the reasons you decided to expand your outerwear collection? RT: I’ve always had outerwear in my collections, but this season I really wanted to expand our outerwear and offer the Rebecca Taylor girl a coat or jacket for every occasion. SF: What is the inspiration for the new styles? RT: The collection was created with a focus on luxury and function. I wanted each piece to marry modern femininity with comfort and offer unique cuts and silhouettes in unexpected colorways. SF: What should a woman look for when choosing a new coat for fall? RT: I would say having a coat that keeps you warm is the most important thing. It’s also important to think about the layers you’ll be wearing underneath your coat--make sure there’s enough room if you plan to wear chunky knits. In a lot of areas, the winter season can feel like a very long time. A coat is a staple piece that carries you through the season--you need something that’s going to last. SF: What details are you loving for outerwear this season? RT: I’m really loving unique embroideries, beautiful embellishments, and faux fur details. SF: What style details should a woman look for when shopping for a coat this season? RT: I think it’s important for a woman to feel special and confident in whatever she wears. Make sure it’s something you’ll love to wear again and again. SF: Do you believe in investing in a good coat, opting for trendier lower-prices ones, or a mix of both? RT: I do think it’s important to invest in a good quality coat but I think you can also enjoy trendier lower-price pieces as well. It’s great to have a mix of both- your good coat is your go-to for every day wear while trendier ones can be worn for special occasions when you want to feel a bit more dressed up. SF: Your faux fur looks and feels amazing! What is the secret?! RT: For our faux furs, I shave off the seam allowance in order to cut out any bulk. This really allows the fur to feel elevated and luxurious. Melton Faux Fur Coat ($795) Icicle Cocoon Coat ($795) Boucle Moto Jacket ($495) Wool Shearling Cocoon Winter Coat ($895) Shearling Vest ($995) Polar Faux Fur Vest ($550) Washed Leather Moto Jacket ($895) Amsterdam Tweed Jacket ( $595) Lace Bonded Jacket ($475) Patch Faux Fur Vest ( $595) Embellished Tweed Jacket ($550) Metallic Leather Moto Jacket ($995) Faux Merino Moto Jacket ($695) Artisan Tweed Fringe Coat ($650)

You guys, I did something crazy last week. Like, Britney Spears circa 2007 crazy (love you, Brit Brit). I bought this Topshop 'Leah' Faux Fur Coat ($109.99, down from $170) at the Nordstrom clearance sale. How could I not?!

FYI, The Best Black Moto Jackets This Season Aren’t Actually Leather
One of the things I knew I wanted at the beginning of September was a black moto jacket. Seems simple enough, except there are so many out there it was actually quite difficult to pick the one. It was also a little tricky because I knew I didn't want a leather moto jacket. Why? Because I'm always cold and if I get a jacket, I want it to keep me warm. After some digging, I'm happy to report I found the most amazing non-leather black moto jacket out there this season--it's the Piperlime Collectionn Coated Shearling Jacket ($149). I received it in the mail last week and it's even better in person than in the picture. The faux fur lining is super soft, but so is the outside! I highly recommend it. If that black moto jacket doesn't suit you, no worries. I rounded up a bunch more I came across in my shopping and I have to admit--they're kinda better than the leather versions. Hopefully you'll find one you love for fall/winter. Click through the slideshow to start your search. Don't miss the best blanket coats, buffalo plaid and quilted shoes. [Photo: Creators of Desire]
10 Light Rain Coats That Literally Have You Covered When A Summer Storm Hits
You may think April showers brings May flowers, but every year we get it wrong. While our minds are constantly on the thought of warm weather during the summer, we tend to forget about the weeks of thunderstorms that come with it. Whether we like it or not we have to admit this: it rains in the summer! And though an umbrella and boots will do some good, you still need to cover up so your clothes don't get wrinkled and wet. You need a rain coat, but not just any rain coat. With summer comes the heat, so it's not like you'll want to pull out your winter one to protect you from the rain and humidity. Instead, you'll need a lighter, comfortable jacket that won't stick to your skin during those humid rainstorms. We suggest a lined rain coat with lightweight material. So check out this slideshow of perfect summer raincoats, you never know when it'll thunderstorm next! Be sure to look at these awesome summer heeled sandals, rash guards, and how to wear red, white and blue. [Photo: What I Wore]

The Pretty Girl’s Guide To Commuting: How To Look Good When You Get To Work
To quote Game of Thrones, "Winter Is Coming." The freezing temps, the snow, the sleet, the rain, and salt-ridden sidewalks. Yes, you'll have to face these weather challenges head-on soon, especially during your daily commute.

Just Say ‘No’ To Motos: The Best Leather Jackets Of The Season Are Draped
Clothes this season tend to err a bit more on the comfy side with oversized and PJ-like everything. It's a bit of an androgynous season, then, to say the very least, but don't think that to fit in with the trend you need to buy outwear that will swallow you whole. Filling in the voids left behind by the usual jacket culprits -- think leather, fitted, puffy, tweed -- are a droopier breed of jacket that won't overwhelm your shape, but that will still fit in with this fall's casual vibe: the drapey leather jacket. Drapey enough to wear over your sleepwear-inspired work attire, but also thick enough to actually keep you warm when the breeze starts to get cooler, these jackets take the fitted feel of blazers and mix it up with the looser look of a sweater. Turns out that this casual and comfy fall trend is even restructuring the traditional leather jacket -- and in the best way possible. [Photo: Be Frassy]
The Comfiest Winter Coats EVER
Winter sucks. Really, it's awful. It's cold -- no, it's freezing -- and unless it's snowing outside -- and like really snowing -- even looking out the window from your cocoon of a bed is bleak, much less going out in it. But we're big girls and getting out of the house, into the office and then catching up with friends later is a pretty big part of our lifestyles. So what's the solution? Finding the coziest, comfiest coats out there. And when it comes to outerwear you'll snuggle up with indoors too, there are a lot of options. From teddy fur coats to faux fur, oversized and blanket-like, patterned or plain, all you need is a budget (this list starts at only $119!) and some cooler weather -- the latter of which is on its way if you're lucky enough to not have too much of it just yet.

How To Look Put-Together On A Rainy Day
I always feel like I look like a drowned rat on rainy days. I never seem to wear the right jacket or shoes--and don't even get me started on my hair. And even though it's pouring out, there's always that one girl gracefully dodging puddles in her cute rain boots and perfectly fitted trench coat. After several days of showing up to work looking like I got lost in the Amazon rainforest during my commute, I decided I wanted to make summer rain storms my bitch. Here are the rainy day survival tricks I've learned so far: Wear water proof makeup. If the weather forecast says rain, reach for your waterproof mascara in the morning. You never know when you'll get caught in downpour or splashed in the face (seriously). Unless you are under the age of 10, multi-colored rain boots are not acceptable. I don't care who makes them. Invest in a pair of classic, black rain boots--preferably ones that look like regular boots. I love this pair by Burberry ($275) because they a) don't even look like they are made out of plastic and b) will go with whatever outfit you already have planned. Pick up a bottle of anti-humidity spray. Kate Middleton is the only woman in the world that can pull off frizzy hair. Swing by Sephora and get yourself a bottle of Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist ($35). Trust me, it's worth it. A belted trench always looks classy. It's almost impossible to go wrong with a classic beige trench coat. Opt for one with a cinched waisted for a more fitted look. Bonus points if you find one with a hood. Plastic ponchos are only okay if you are a tourist at Disney world. Unless your trapped at Epcot in the middle of a torrential downpour, don't even think about touching a plastic poncho. In order to help you follow these rules, I rounded up the best boots, umbrellas and rain jackets for surviving this miserable weather (and looking good at the same time). Flip through the slideshow to check out my rainy day picks. And for sunny days, check out these classic-style sunglasses, pastel sunnies and our guide to the best sunglasses.
When Warmer Weather Hits, Trade In Your Wool Coat For One Of These Cool Anoraks
As much as we love layering, there comes a point in early spring when all we want to do is hang up our sweaters, scarves, and coats and throw on an easy, lightweight jacket. And every spring, without fail, our jacket of choice is the anorak. Versatile and weatherproof, anoraks actually shield you from the spring elements (namely, rain), while providing a perfectly casual and cozy cover up for warm(ish)-weather attire. This spring, we're loving traditional, oversize silhouettes, but we're also falling for anoraks in refreshingly cool colors and patterns (think polka dots and colorblock). The best thing about these jackets? They'll never go out of style--and you can just as easily wear them on a hike in the country as you can on your hike to the subway every morning. Shop our favorite anoraks of the season in the slideshow, then check out more spring jacket trends: bright leather, embellished denim, and lace bombers! [Photo: Keiko Lynn]
Denim Jackets Get A Major Makeover For Spring: Studs, Stars, Metallic, More
It's almost spring, which means denim jackets are back in style...again. Everyone and their mom has the same boring denim jacket. Thankfully, this year denim jackets are getting a much needed makeover. Gone are the childish cropped jackets and mommy denim-- this spring's jean jackets are totally bad ass. Think studs, metallics, and tons of mixed media. Get your inspiration from Gwen Stefani and rock a cool jean jacket with leather sleeves or go bright with colored denim like Amanda Seyfried. We rounded up an amazing mix of colored, distressed and embellished jean jackets for every style. Splurge on jacket from the denim brand R13 (they just released their first line of outerwear) or go crazy with tons of different styles from Forever 21.

Get Blizzard-Ready In Lake Bell’s Rag & Bone Coat And Scarf From Sundance
Since the Northeast is about to be buried under a layer of snow, we can all use a few tips on how to look good in the freezing cold. Maybe we could all learn a little something from Lake Bell. The actress not only took home the screenwriting award at Sundance for In A Word - a project she also starred in and directed - but she also nailed the perfect cold weather get-up in a Rag & Bone Belfast coat ($300) and the patterned Rag & Bone Raj scarf ($60). We love the warm jacket’s edgy canvas patches and fur-trimmed hood. Plus, it's the perfect price for a versatile winter coat. The jacket and scarf aren't available just yet, but they will likely be back in stock soon at Rag & Bone so be sure to set an alert. For more celebrity style, shop Kate Beckinsale's discounted jacket, Miley's high-waisted pants & crop top, and Jessica Biel's jeans, tank and bag.
Kate Beckinsale’s Drape-y Jacket Is On Sale
Kate Beckinsale has been slowly making her way onto our style radar with subtle, chic fashion choices that look great without ever feeling over the top. Last Tuesday, the Total Recall star stepped out in a textured Helmut Lang Perma Jacquard Jacket ($557, down from $795) while shopping at Fred Segal in Santa Monica. She paired the two-tone topper with baggy boyfriend jeans cuffed just above her ankle boots and a high pony, earning the British actress an incredibly effortless-yet-cool vibe. Kate has been really feeling this look lately, as evidenced by another recent relaxed-jeans-and-ankle-boots ensemble topped with a structured jacket. Is she pioneering a new trend? Or just sticking with a winning strategy? For more celebrity style, check out Kate Bosworth's high-low ensemble, Rihanna's lace-up swimsuit and Miley Cyrus's crop top look.
Metallic Moto Jackets To Help You Get Your Post-Holiday Fix Of Shiny Things
Didn't get all-things sparkly out of your system over the holidays? Don't worry: you can still wear shiny pieces well into the winter months. One of the best ways to rock the look right now is with a metallic moto jacket, a trendy, eye-catching alternative to the black leather jackets everyone has been wearing. Try a statement jacket in shimmery gold, bronze or silver over a simple outfit of muted colors, such as a winter white cable knit with black pants and booties. If you still need more color, add a splash with a bright scarf. For our roundup of metallic moto jackets, click through the slideshow. Want to shop more trends?

Found! Suri Cruise’s Navy Blue Puffer Coat
If you live in the Northeast, you know how cold it's been these last few days. Sure, we've experienced colder, but that doesn't mean it's not frigid out there. So what do you put on your kid to keep him/her warm? Well, if you're Katie Holmes you turn to J. Crew Crewcuts and they're super lightweight, yet warm puffer coats. That's what Suri is wearing in the pic above and despite the grimace she appears to be perfectly warm in her topper. (more…)
Nor’easter, Shmor’easter: Rachel Zoe’s On-Sale Military Coat Is A Safe Bet
The first major snow storm of the season has rolled through the Northeast and we are already so over it. It's like the Russian tundra out there.

A Lesson From Katie Holmes In Non-Bulky Winter Dressing
Every winter, we manage to encounter the same problem. I mean, how on earth are we supposed to look cute bundled up in layers and layers of bulky fabric? Last Wednesday, Katie Holmes may have solved that problem while out in NYC with daughter Suri. In her Moncler Genevrier Coat ($1,525), the Broadway actress mastered the art of wearing puffy coat without looking like, well, a puffer fish. Or that kid from A Christmas Story. Paired with her sleek leggings and Rag & Bone Classic Newbury Booties ($495), which are so hot right now with fashion-set celebs, any bulkiness added to the top half is automatically balanced out on the lower. Agree that it's time to finally look warm and cute? Get Katie's un-puffy puffer coat and all-the-rage booties, below!

Zoe Saldana’s Coat Is $30 And From Old Navy
Can you guess where Zoe Saldana, lead actress in the all-time highest grossing box-office film and recipient of Vogue's coveted Best Dressed title, got her coat? Unbelievably, the Avatar star's bright (like, Curious George bright) yellow topper is none other than Old Navy's Women's Classic Wool-Blend Coat ($29, was $55). Guys, it's even on sale. Cue the gasps! Could she possibly have borrowed it from Olivia Palermo, who was spotted in the exact same piece just last month? Or perhaps Old Navy is in the midst of a celeb-ridden PR stunt, and there are more banana-yellow clad celebs in our future. Regardless, when you're as gorgeous as Ms. Saldana -- and your boyfriend is none other than the smoking hot Bradley Cooper -- let's face it, you can wear a burlap sack and still shine like gold (or a yellow school bus). Better get yours quick! With two top stars now wearing it, this coat is sure to sell out fast. Get yours now, below.

Want A Figure-Flattering Coat? Put A Peplum On It.
Just when we thought we had the perfect winter coat, brands like Burberry and Zara had to prove us all wrong. Not that we mind being wrong.. this time. Introducing the ultra figure-flattering peplum coat. Taking its cue from one of the hottest trends of the year, the shapely silhouette has made its way onto winter coats of all forms. A thick belt accentuates a feminine waist and pulls in unwieldy and thick fabric, and the flare lengthens the torso and gives instant curves. It's a win-win-win! See our favorite winter peplum picks in the slideshow below. Baby, it's cold outside! Don't forget your cold weather accessories, tall black boots and weatherproof boots.
Embrace The Leather Trend From An Arm’s Length–It’s All About The Sleeves
Not quite adventurous enough to try leather leggings this season? Totally understandable.

There's no threat of looking like a shiny sausage, but you'll still get cool points with the fashion set for pulling leather like a pro. And lucky for you, there's no shortage of amazing coats and jackets with leather sleeves this season. From trenches to wool toppers, check out our favorite coats with leather sleeves in the slideshow. Winter's coming, so get your closet ready with weatherproof boots, warm flannel shirts and a chic quilted vest.
Proof: Taylor Swift Is Surviving Her Latest Break Up Just Fine
Now that Taylor Swift and high-school boytoy Conor Kennedy have split (and presumably will never, ever, ever get back together), we're taking bets to see if she hangs on to her newfound prepdom or reverts back to her girly pre-Kennedy style. The singer wore this candy apple-red Fay Single-Breasted Coat ($1,294) in NYC last Wednesday, just one day before the news of her breakup went mainstream. She's been spotted in the primary color several times while promoting her latest album Red, but the bright shade and classic silhouette are decidedly prep. Who knows, maybe she'll ditch the good-girl image and go full-on Rihanna? We're staying tuned! Celebrity style watch: Blake Lively's jacket (and wedding ring!), Rose Byrne's $25 skirt and Whitney Port's cut-out dress.
