Now that summer is coming to a close for 2010, it will soon be time for you to break out the coats for colder weather. The fall is a perfect time to still wear some of your lighter clothes and top it off with a coat, saving you money on a new wardrobe. Since you still have a few months until the warmer clothes become mandatory, here are easy ways to incorporate any style jacket into your wardrobe this fall, according to InStyle Magazine:
Toggle Coat: The length of this coat and the toggle enclosures make it a perfect choice to pair with a dress or skirt. Take your lighter dress or skirt into fall by pairing it with dark tights and shoes, and adding a splash of color with a bright or printed bag.
Light-colored Blazer: Pair any light-colored blazers with a pale top and light pant to keep the blazer from standing out too much. Blazers are ideal coats to wear for a night out, especially when paired with a girly top that has jewels or other decorative feature.
Leather coat: Keep a leather coat from looking too wild by pairing it with a feminine top or dress. In contrast, add a bit of edge to your outfit by wearing dark tights and shoes with the dress or skirt and pair it with a studded clutch.
Menswear Jacket: This universal jacket goes well with virtually everything from casual to formal. For a causal look, pair the jacket with skinny jeans, flowy top and heels. Add the coat to a cocktail dress in any color to create a chic style that pairs both a feminine and slightly masculine look.
Double-Breasted Wool Coat: No matter what length your wool coat is, you can pair it with anything in your wardrobe from jeans to slacks or a dress. Since the military coat is in for Fall 2010, this is a perfect way to stay warm and look stylish with a traditional A-line coat.
