FW17 Trends: Outerwear Overload.

Matches Fashion x Lanvin FW17

It was a fucking heatwave in New York over the weekend, but that's not going to stop me from writing a post about outerwear. See I gotta admit I might have a problem with how many coats and jackets I buy for the winter, but hear me out: the right coat can take your look from fine to straight up fly af. Shoes have the same effect, but that's for another post. This season is the time to start challenging your normal outerwear look and opt for something with some edge to it. Still rocking a bomber? That's cool. But why not try it in velvet or acid wash or destroyed or borg. Gone are the strict days of minimalism and in are the days of pattern and fabric and color and dare I say it, flair. Whether it's an oversized overcoat or a cropped denim jacket, it's time to go into overdrive with your outerwear and don't hold back. Peep the moodboard and some of my favorite picks from ASOS below.

What it's about: Having a little fun with your outerwear and making it your statement piece for the season.

Key designers: Tim Coppens, Band of Outsiders, Marni
