Fashionably warm outerwear
Come cooler weather, outerwear rules the wardrobe. Here’s a selection of coats and boots that hit the trends’and suit a range of fall temperatures
Sleek puffer coat
Chic details abound on this fleece-filled tweed jacket in a recycled wool blend: A waist-cinching belt and diagonal seams flatter, while shiny silver zippers and a drawstring collar add style to practicality (H&M, $70).
The boot: Stretchy fabric along the backs of these synthetic-leather wedge boots ensures a streamlined fit (Jessica, $100 at Sears).
Military style jacket
Utilitarian details-like quilting, patch pockets and a waist belt-look stylish on this lightly insulated jacket in army-green polyester (Denver Hayes, $80 at Marks).
The boot: These waterproof full-grain leather boots have serious eco-cred: The soles are partially recycled rubber, and the lining is a material made from plastic water bottles (Timberland, $240).
Cozy in a cobalt jacket
Brighten up a dreary day in a vibrant colour. This poly-filled puffer is made extra-cuddly with soft fleece lining throughout the body and pockets (Old Navy, $45).
The boot: A slouchy ruching gives these synthetic-leather boots a casual look (Payless, $60).
This toggle coat is made from a heavyweight polyester/wool blend. Thinsulate lining and ribbed knit cuffs and collar boost warmth (Roots, $248).
The boot: A mix of leather, suede, canvas and rubber gives these lace-ups a rugged feel-and durable wear (Sorel, $280).
A wool-blend felt jacket in one of the season’s hottest hues gets its flare from a swingy A-line cut (Joe Fresh, $69).
The boot: The tough looks of these Montreal-made kicks are deceiving: The biker-style boots feature a plush sheepskin lining and buttery-soft pebbled leather (Rudsak, $225).
This off-white textured wool-blend coat has a flattering ’60s-style cut: fitted in the torso with a slight flare from waist to hem (H&M, $99).
The boot: High stacked heels raise the trend factor of these cognac leather riding boots (Joe Fresh, $99).
This brown and navy wool-blend jacket is a subtle take on the season’s patterned trend (RW & Co., $168).
The boot: Low-heeled ankle booties are the must-have footwear of the season. These boots pair rough and smooth chocolate leather with sturdy wood heels and decorative buckles (Cat, $190).
