This fall, there are a variety of charming, must-have sweaters and coats that are flying off store shelves. 

Belted Coats

Belted coats are a stylish, elegant, and sophisticated way to go! They are a waist-slimming trick, and be assured, they will define your curves.

Wool Coats

These simple, wool coats are sure to keep you toasty, while simultaneously sexy!  Get it in black to make it versatile, and have it be the best match to go with the rest of your clothing.

Trench Coats

Trench coats are usually long, but you can also find shorter versions of them. They tend to have buttons going down the middle and a voguish belt to go along with side pockets.  Plus, they tend to be made of waterproof materials, so even if it rains or snows, you’ll be covered! Moreover, trench coats usually have an insulated lining that is easily removable to adjust to the changing climate.

Blanket Coats

The blanket coat is super comfy and exudes a tremendous amount of heat. It looks exactly how it sounds, like a blanket!

The Teddy Coat

This coat is a winner! Everyone is styling the Teddy Coat this fall. It is oversized and fluffy. Who wouldn’t want to wear the teddy coat?

Faux-Fur Coat

This coat is snug, without being overpriced like real animal fur! Plus, it doesn’t harm any animals in the making, rendering it popular with animal rights believers and activists.


A blazer is chic and luxurious and will make any outfit pop.

Plaid sweaters (flannels)

Anything with plaid is the new look. Plaid sweaters are sleek and fresh.

Wool Bended Knit Sweaters

These sweaters are cozy, trendy, and tasteful. What more is there to ask for?! Be sure to put these in your shopping carts immediately, before they sell out!

Turtleneck Sweaters

Turtlenecks are back from the 1950’s! They are perfect for letting your inner laziness show and just sporting a relaxed look.
