Apple picking, pumpkin carving, hay rides, and outdoor brunches to take advantage of the last few days of sidewalk-seating weather. Oh, and bundled scarves, felt brimmed hats, leather booties… and everything else that makes the impending doom of having a White Christmas and a White Mother’s Day barely bearable.

All of these outdoor activities call for a seriously stylish coat that will:

  1. Keep you warm and
  2. Keep you ahead of the fashion curve (or still on the fashion curve at the very least… we’re looking at you, bulky and unflattering parkas).

Our Giftbar merchants, of course, have you covered and coated, no matter what your unique autumnal style may be — smart, luxe, androgynous, or changing on a daily basis because you want to be featured on the homepage of every street-style blog. Now That’s What I Call Style Volume: Fall.

You’re a Smarty Pants

Smarty sleeves, actually. This Two Penny Blue blazer is for the fashionable fall-ionista who loves to layer. Pair the leafy-shaded jacket with a bundled, patterned scarf on top and knee-high, cognac boots on the bottom for an equestrian-esque ensemble that will never go out of style. And how gorgeous would you look picking those Golden Delicious apples in your bestie’s Facebook photo album from the trip? You’ll be the apple of everyone’s eye.

You’re Fur Real

But you’re not real fur. Say hello to luxury when you’re wearing this grey fox vest from Giftbar fave, Zamrie. We’re thinking a brimmed felt fedora and oversized sunnies would look so glam with this topper, whether brunching, strolling, or picking pumpkins at the patch. Maybe avoid the de-gutting, though… pumpkin spiced lattes and sweets are drool-worthy, but pumpkin spiced furs? Not so much.

You’re Cape-able

For pure elegance, and a peek inside. This Haute Hippie cape (yes, they’re on Giftbar — we’ll pause for gift card purchases) is for the trendsetter who simply can’t bear the thought of covering up the outfit she planned days in advanced. It’s black, so it goes with anything, and its open sleeves hide nothing. Your statement necklace, billowing sleeves, and flattering waistline can all be seen — and therefore, envied — by passerby as you’re stomping your way down the catwalk (ahem, sidewalk).

You’re The Man

Menswear-inspired pieces will always have a place in our hearts. Why? Because they’re just. so. chic. Dallas tastemaker, Nicole Kwon, is an authority on edgy and contemporary womenswear that could have easily been pulled from your little bro’s closet, but were actually pulled from this season’s runways. This grey wool, oversized collared coat is perfect for the brisk autumnal chill and would look super grungy-chic when paired with a slouchy beanie. Start planning your fall outfits around this piece ASAP, because it’s going to be hanging in your closet very soon… Well, if you can’t control your impulses. (Guilty as charged).

You’re It

The dream coat from the dream closet of every It girl. If you can’t picture Alexa, Olivia, or Cara in this bubblegum-hued coat from Giftbar love, Tibi, then it’s obviously been a while since your last foray through the pages of any fashion magazine on the shelves. This coat certainly does the talking, but it also does the walking because this fall essential would give any outfit legs. In fact, why wear anything under it at all? Nothing is going to steal the spotlight from this coat. Oh, and it comes in Mint, too. Why must you do this to our overflowing closets and our empty-by-comparison wallets, Tibi?
