I was so excited after watching an advanced screening of The Queen of Katwe that I left one of my fall jackets in the movie theater when I left. That is why I started researching the best fall jackets for women trends. I like to look at the various styles and decide what is most wearable for my full life as a mom. I went to InStyle (one of my favorite online fashion recap sites) for direction and I wasn’t disappointed. Some of the The Top 9 Coat Trends from the Fall 2016 Shows at New York Fashion Week were a “no” (shearling, graphic fur, camel leather, patchwork, toggle coats and oversized coats). The springy shades and minimalist with interest trends were “maybes” because I do love the color pink and I am a minimalist. The style that I settled on though was the cropped peacoats. I like the classic style and because I’m 5’3, cropped jackets are great.
Navy Cropped Peacoats
Once I narrowed down my fall jacket trend pick to a navy cropped peacoat, these ended up being my top choices…
–Tibi Admiral Cropped Peacoat (Navy, $725)
–LOFT Cropped Navy Peacoat (Forever Navy, $108)
–Liz Claiborne Cropped Peacoat (Navy, $100)
I finally ended up choosing the LOFT jacket. I looked in our jacket/coat closet before I went to LOFT though and noted that I already had a perfectly great peacoat that I had just purchased last year. I had totally forgotten about it?! Anyway, I wanted to share these picks anyway…just in case you are looking for a new fall jacket. (Just don’t forget to “shop your closet” first!)
