The holidays are fast approaching, and with them comes frigid weather. Still, cold weather is no excuse not to look your best, so outerwear is particularly important when attending a cocktail or black tie affair. A girl has to choose carefully what she will wear to cover up that gorgeous dress. A dowdy cover up is the first impression that others will see and one can ruin your entrance if not chosen carefully. Check out these three favorite overcoat looks below to see what’s on trend for outerwear this holiday season and make a first impression that you will want guests to remember.
From left to right:
1. This silver, stud-sprayed, black crepe cape from Alice by Temperley ($650) is a chic way to cover up a sparkly dress for a holiday party.
2. This ornate, silk flower, embellished cream coat by 3.1 Phillip Lim ($1,950) is almost as pretty as any holiday dress you could wear under it. Paired over your favorite cocktail attire, this piece will add texture and richness to any look.
3. Anna Sui's bold cream and black faux-fur checkerboard coat ($830) will add color and dimension to a solid or print dress.
So keep in mind capes, silk embellishments and faux fur prints when shopping for your holiday outerwear this season.
