Three Style-Savvy Ways to Stay Warm This Fall
Gearing up for colder weather has a tendency to freak people out, at least in terms of fashion. A lot of us end up thinking we have to leave our taste at the door just because we have to throw on an outer layer, but that’s so not the case! Forever 21 has come out with a killer new collection of coats to covet called The Outerwear Edit, and it will have your last year’s jackets running for the hills.
It’s fabulous for so many reasons, the first being that no item is over $65—no, that’s not a typo! You’re probably used to seeing outerwear price tags that are well into three digits, so it’s such a relief that Forever 21 has us budget-friendly and style-savvy collegiettes in mind. We’ve handpicked the cutest items from the collection that will keep you stylish and cozy at the same time!
1. Experiment with texture
Faux Suede Moto Jacket, $57.80
You know how amazing your feet feel in a pair of fluffy slippers? Well, that’s how your whole body will feel in this faux suede number – except you’ll actually look cute and sophisticated while you wear it! This coat is all about the details: the belted waist, asymmetric zipper and über soft faux-fur lining... how can you possibly go wrong? Plus, the loose fit allows room for a few extra layers if it’s a really chilly day.
Trying out pieces with texture doesn’t mean automatically turning to faux fur, though, if you aren’t a fan. Try out a boucle piece like this womens wool coats ($47.80), which has an amazing oversized shape for extra warmth and chicness. In case you were wondering what boucle is, it’s a type of yarn with a curly ply, which is what gives this coat a rich quality. Plus, it’ll help you stay warm without making you look like the Abominable Snowman! This classic cut is a safe option to wear over a dress for a fancier occasion, like a fall formal or dinner out in your college town.
2. Go mod
Double-Breasted A-Line Coat, $59.80
The mod look from the 60s is re-emerging this fall, and this double-breasted coat is a great piece you can wear to embrace the trend (and stay warm while you do it)! Seriously though, this jacket looks like it could totally have scored its own scene in Mad Men. The double-breasted front flap offers a sophisticated look that can transition you from day to night, plus it’ll keep your upper torso warm even on the windiest of fall days. All you need is a cute skirt; bold, thick-knit tights and some girly oxfords, and voilà! Instant cozy chic.
3. Opt for oversized
Shawl Collar Coat, $39.80
You’re probably used to fitted coats that taper at the waist or come with a belt to frame your waist, but once in a while it’s nice to go with the oversized look. This shawl coat makes us feel cozy just by looking at it! The loose fit gives the coat a laid-back look, yet it can still be trendy and sophisticated thanks to the draping lapels. When you’re headed to class on a chilly morning, you can throw on some booties, a wool snood and a fab oversized coat, and you’ll be ready for anything!
The Outerwear Edit collection also features an Oversized Open-Front Blazer ($32.90) that’s just boxy enough to be incredibly on-trend, but not so boxy that you feel like one of the crooks in Home Alone. It comes in black and camel – both must-have colors for fall! You can play this piece to your advantage, whether you’re going shopping online and want to nail the effortless street-style look, or looking to channel an old-school preppy vibe.
Forever 21’s Outerwear Edit Collection has so many options —anyone with any type of style can find something chic to wear that will also keep them snug as the temperatures drop this season. Believe it or not, this collection is actually making us even more excited for the chilly weather to come; forget pumpkin spice lattés and fall foliage, just bring on the fab fall fashions!
