With the temperatures gradually dropping, fashionistas will soon be swapping their lightweight denim for heavier knits and wool coats. On the season’s runways, the nautical theme reigned supreme, with dark navy blue and military buttons stealing the spotlight. Although you may not be a naval officer yourself, you can always channel the look in a woolen navy coat adorned with gleaming buttons. Whether you’re off to work or play, get the runway look for yourself with these easy styling tips.
For a versatile and trendy weekend look, draw your sartorial inspiration from the Tommy Hilfiger catwalk. Slip into a luxurious navy coat with gold trim, and pair your classic nautical inspired topper with an oversized black hoodie. The look of white canvas sneakers and a fringed patterned scarf helps to wrap up your style.
The refined, polished silhouette of a streamlined navy coat can very well bring your autumn work wardrobe to life. Look no further than the Red Valentino catwalk, where a belted long coat was decorated with shining gold buttons. For a feminine ensemble which still screams business, accessorize your statement outerwear with a knotted sheer black scarf and ankle strap flats. Add a navy blue leather handbag with gold studs, and prepare to rock your workday in style.
The preppy and pristine naval coat is suitable for day and night, which makes it a great topper for Saturday nights in autumn. Pair a long, fitted wool coat with a pair of patterned tights, lace-up high boots and a funky printed frock (as seen at Prada) Whether you’re on your way to a cozy date night or off to dinner, you’re sure to stun in this navy inspired trend.
