When it comes to fall fashion, there is nothing better than finding that perfect coat to keep you warm all season long. Admittedly, it can be easy to just pick up a classic black coat and call it a day. This fall, dare to step out of your fashion comfort zone though and experiment with different colored coats!

Scroll on for 6 coats you should try this fall:

If your goal is to turn heads all day long, choose a coat in a bright and bold color such as orange or red!

Add a dose of style to your 9 to 5 schedule by throwing on a long white coat.

 

One of our favorite fall trends has been the rise of the plaid coat.

 

Picking up a classic trench coat is always an obvious choice. For that extra bit of flair, style it with a scarf!

 

Never underestimate the power of a pink coat to make your outfit look more polished.

 

Grey coats work perfectly all season long, and they’re the perfect touch for those who love rocking neutral-colored outfits.

October 9th, 2018 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: 5 Fall Instagram Trends

I often turn to Instagram for style inspiration and quick overviews of what’s trending. I follow countless bloggers and street style stars and often categorize the images and outfit “likes” for easy access to ideas, tips, and #OOTD inspo when getting dressed in the morning.  With the changing season, new trends have been populating my feed and I’m sharing 5 of the most “liked” Instagram trends for this fall season.

 

Leopard Skirts + Dresses
The hottest resurgence for fall, leopard print has been one of the top Instagram style trends this season.

 

Blazers
Blazers are the perfect lightweight second layer for this tricky transitional weather.

 

Polka Dots
From “delicate and feminine” to “big and bold,” polka dots are taking over Instagram in the form of dresses, blouses, pants, and accessories!

 

Belt Bags
Belt bags (or the modern version of a fanny pack) have been trending for the past couple of years, and this season the It girls are wearing the convenient hands free bag like a crossbody.

Terracotta
This subdued burnt orange is the perfect mix of bold and chic and is the color of autumn.
