If you haven’t checked out some of the incredible looks from New York Fashion Week’s street style darlings, it’s a must see … fabulous coats galore.  Personally, I always loved the gorgeous coats Blair Waldorf sported on the set of Gossip Girl, and even now, as I’m coming into my own in fashion, I’ve really embraced the bold statement piece (even when the rest of my outfit is chock full of blacks and greys).  When it comes to a great coat, Blair-inspired, of course, I’m ever on the hunt for something feminine with a great color or pattern.

These are a few of my favorites, as of late:


By the way, how gorgeous is that J.Crew jewel-crusted collar wool coat?

And if an edgier Winter coat is more your style, try one of these stylish parkas on for size.

    Love a good statement coat! I agree that fashion week street style was all about the coats this year. Love love the Zara coat in the first image (so sad it’s sold out!)


    • Lexi

      Definitely – so much street style goodness this season!

    I couldn’t agree more on having a statement coat! Especially during the winter!! It’s the best way to still look chic in the cold.

  5. As I figure out my coat woes, have a look at these beautiful fall coats with a knock out style.

  6. There is nothing better than a fur trimmed coat!! I’m going skiing in Switzerland this week and really wish most of these weren’t already sold out! Fabulous!

    • Lexi

      It’s so true – I can’t believe how fast these coats sell out!
