Detail-Oriented

When it comes to statement coats, it’s the little things that make a big difference

 

If there’s one area of your life to become detail-oriented, make it fashion this season—as winter’s statement coats require it. Unorthodox prints (like ombré) made an unexpected appearance in menswear, thanks to designers like Ann Demeulemeester, whose bevy of statement jackets and overcoats in the pattern—mostly in graduating shades of gray and charcoal—made big time waves on the fall runways. In addition to the more obscure patterns, a few classics also emerged, like slimming stripes and cozy waffle knits. But the biggest news may be the return of the classic pea coat, which is whipped into ship-shape with twists in color (from navy to you-name-it) and changes to proportion (going overboard with oversized buttons and extended collars is a must). A favorite was undoubtedly by Fendi, which finished the bottom fifth of its pea coat with a shiny, on-trend leather sheen. A small detail with a big impact, no doubt—it’ll leave you well prepared to bear the brisk winter temps in style.
