Gucci embodies the small-town strolls that are so quintessentially fall with this thoughtfully-tailored camel hair coat in the season’s most versatile shade of tan. Wear with your go-to denim and smart leather oxfords or opt for what’s best for walking, like lived-in low tops.
Make a statement before you get in the door with a shoulder-grazing faux fur collar topping the laid-back 90s silhouette that’s dominating the runways. Toss on over a chunky knit sweater, oversized denim, and lace-up leather boots for effortless edge.
Hermès adds a cool factor to this sophisticated silhouette with artfully placed calfskin leather panels on the front and sleeve. Boasting the luxurious materials and high-style tailoring the fashion house is famed for, this wear-with-everything wool coat is anything but standard.
