The fall coat is a basic essential that can elevate basic casual attire and conceal wardrobe sins. By wardrobe sins I mean concealing old beat up sweat pants, faded shirts past their prime and rolling out of bed to go out on a coffee run. Here we see Naomi Watts taking her dog out for a walk, I can imagine her coat worn over all black or camel, it’s the perfect coat for fall.
Katie Holmes has the right idea, here we see her strolling around New York, looking as chic as ever with a teddy bear coat. Her coat also falls into the same category, you can dress it up or dress it down, that’s when you know you have a keeper.
You could also invest in a stand alone piece that transforms basic black or camel, I don’t see this coat worn with casual attire, but I am not a professional stylist. However wearing a lot of black, this coat would fit in to my wardrobe and elevate everything black.
