The Latest Classics: Updated Outerwear

Every winter a new style of coat bursts onto the scene – swing coat one year, full-length the next. I even recall a time when women were rocking the double-breasted military like they just stepped out of a Civil War reenactment.  While trendy styles may come and go with the cold, a few true-blues have stuck around to become new classics. Below are our top picks in the world of outerwear.

 


If the khaki Burberry trench is a reliable wardrobe staple, then this Burberry Prorsum Piped Edge Trench ($2950) is its younger, hipper sibling. The sleek black color and modern buckle detail move it right along into nouveau iconic territory. The Theory Jacen Trenchcoat ($595) comes with a hood and offers a similar chic design. 

Women: Kanga pocket puffer jacket - pumpkin seed

My mother's generation would not have been caught dead in a puffer jacket – at least not a few decades ago. But now these down-filled wonders are permanent closet fixtures come December. The modern classic is cropped, lightweight, and colorful. This quilted puffer from Lacoste (was $265, now $159) comes in an understated grey, but if you really want to pop, try the Gap's Kanga Puffer (was $98, now $35). 


 
Who would have guessed that the standard issue outerwear for midshipmen would become an impenetrable fashion classic? Well, we're certainly glad it did, because the peacoat has a nostalgic allure that's been updated through these modern designs. We covet this tweed grey MINT shrunken peacoat for its simple and flattering shape. Nine West Peacoat is a great alternative and comes in a smoky olive green.

Like a bat out of hell, biker jackets rode straight off the freeway and into our wardrobes – for good. These little numbers exude attitude, sex, and all around bad girl vibes – which is why we'll keep them around forever. The D&G Classic Leather Biker Jacket is made of buttery leather with simple zipper detail. For a cheaper option, try Topshop's cropped version.
