Trend Discourse: Sleeveless Coats

Asos Weekday Sleeveless Belted Coat

      I'm already counting down the days to fall because I am not a fan of hot weather. I absolutely cannot wait to bring out my wool coats, leather jackets, and boots! One trend I've observed for the fall is sleeveless coats or blazers. It may sound like just a vest, but it's not because these coats are loose rather than fitted. I think of these coats as perfect layering pieces during the transition period between summer and fall for when the weather is cool, but not cold enough for your favorite autumn jacket. Continue reading to see pictures of this coat on the runway and my six picks at the end!

      Even though it's still 80+ degrees here in NYC, some of the fall collections have been trickling into stores. Hence, I've already bought my sleeveless coat/gilet for the fall! As of right now, there are a lot of options at the higher end range ($400-$1k), but save your pennies! I'm pretty sure as we get deeper into the fall season, we'll see more options for this type of coat across a wider range of retailers. If you're itching to get one now though, see my six picks at the end for some options you can purchase right now!

Edit: Also really loving this affordable faux-leather accented option from Ann Taylor. The item came out after I had already finished writing this post, but I had to edit the post to put it in!!

Happy shopping!!
