The puffer silhouette is considered the one of the sportiest coats, being filled with down to keep you toasty and cozy as you brave the winter snow and wind. With the addition of a belt, however, the Vince Camuto Hooded Quilted Puffer Coat takes a figure-flattering turn to highlight your feminine curves. Suddenly the athletically inclined coat feels worthy of a night out; "I love something unexpected, like pairing a shimmery dress and heels with a sporty puffer," says Katie. Try this alternative look the next time you hit the town!
A covetable must-have cross between a motorcycle jacket and aviator shearling coat, the Vince Camuto Belted Sherpa Coat will tip any outfit into a runway inspired ensemble. The longer length means you can slip this edgy jacket over your sweater and jeans to transform your outfit into a city-slicker look with a serious downtown cool-factor.
Forgo the adage, “The devil is in the details” in favor of, “The style is in the details.” The clean lines of the Vince Camuto Coat with Leather Paneling (available at Vince Camuto retail locations) are emphasized by the leather details along the elbows and pocket openings, strategically placed to break up the coat’s over-sized silhouette. "Leather skinnies have an edgy-yet-effortless vibe that make every outfit that much cooler. Topped with this coat's clean, classic lines, this look is going to be my go-to all season long," shares Katie. Take a cue from Katie and pair this coat with your skinny jeans and a high-heeled bootie for an intriguing mix of proportions within your outfit.
Tweed has become a major retro-revival and is wonderfully on-trend for the autumn season. The Vince Camuto Down Interior Funnel Neck Coat features an inner lining of ultra-lightweight down. The result is not only a warmer coat but a trendy layered look without the added bulk. We love how Katie paired this tweed number with white denim for our ideal transitional outfit. Eschewing the dated notion of "No white after Labor Day," Katie says, "I wear my white jeans all year long. They add a crisp note fall's cozy textures: plush knits, pony-hair flats, and (my favorite must-have) the tweed-y menswear jacket."
