Fall 2013 Trend: Oversized Coats

So long spring, hello fall. After months of sherbet hues and spicy ruffles, it's officially time for autumn-approved trends. As always, I'm here to give you the low-down on what to wear this chilly season. Get ready, fashionistas: the fall trends guide has arrived.

A necessity for when the temperatures drop, sporting a heavy jacket is always a fall must. With an oversized shape, coats are more of a statement piece this season. Masculinity meets femininity, as sharp lapels and closures are doused in dreamy pastels.  This boys versus girls fad sends a very clear message: contrary to popular belief, you can have it all-- sartorially, that is.

Unlike some of spring's best trends--ruffles, tie-dye, and the list goes on-- this trend is for the drama-free minimalist of the fashion world. But just because this string of coats calls for streamlined silhouettes doesn't mean your outfits have to be boring.  For a night on the town, pair your statement jacket with black skinnies, black booties, and a black top. Craving a ladylike outfit? This trend will be office-appropriate with a pencil skirt and modest heels or stylish loafers. And if you're seriously itching for an "off the charts" ensemble, take a note from Louis Vuitton's fall collection and combine clashing prints. But instead of striving to create a loud getup, focus on luxe patterns. As for the accessories, pair this look with structured pieces: a sleek choker, retro handbag, and a classic pair of cat-eye sunnies are some great options. But beware tastemakers: you're probably going to get a lot of compliments on your classic ensemble. After the twentieth compliment you receive, realize that I told you so, smile, and say "thank you."
