12 Cute Fall Outfit Essentials For Women

Coats, Jackets and Blazers

1. Trench Coat

Is it really fall if you don’t wear a trench coat at least once? No, it isn’t!

The trench coat is a staple fall fashion item that trends every year. And since the fit of a trench coat is supposed to be roomy, you can style it with a chunky fall sweater or wear it over your work suit.

The best thing about trench coats is that you can adjust the coat’s fit with a belt, so you could even wear a t-shirt underneath it if you’re feeling hip.

Missguided has a great selection of trench coats to pick from. Take this oversized sandstone trench coat, for instance, for a more traditional look while still being trendy.

Missguided also offers the same trench coat in black if you're looking for a more sleek look. And another popular item is a black spliced faux leather formal coat, since faux leather is the next big thing.

If these aren't for you, they have long trenches, short trenches, and trenches in any color you desire.

2. Faux Leather Jacket

Faux leather is the animal-friendly trend this season.

Faux leather jackets can come in several shades of black, brown, and white, with a few selective colors in between. So, the item could naturally go with anything depending on your mood for the day, which is why this jacket is imperative to have in your wardrobe this fall.
