-The blanket coat: If you really want to get comfy in your coat, choose a blanket-style wrap or coat in a graphic stripe or check. Many of this season's blanket coats have a Western vibe and make great weekend toppers when worn with boots and jeans.

-The princess coat: Dressed up or down, this tailored look, often detailed with pleats and seams, can be a stylish outerwear alternative for dresses and pantsuits. The traditional A-line shape is flattering on most figures and is a classic coat silhouette that will see you through many years to come.

-The biker jacket: There are plenty of ways to get one of the hottest trends into your coat wardrobe with the edgy look of leather, whether it's an all-leather look in the ever-popular black or just a touch in a collar, a sleeve or lapel. But one of the most popular silhouettes riding into fall is the traditional "biker" jacket updated with generous shapes in colorful suedes and textured leathers. We've come a long way, James Dean.
