Presenting The Puffer Coats’ Sexier Cousin
Yup, it’s cold outside. That’s just a simple fact. You’ve started to master your yearly art of bundling up as you make the way out the door for your daily commute. We know your trusty puffer jacket will be heavy in the rotation and for good reason, but, you might want to think about upgrade your overcoat game.
From bold colors, military-inspired pieces and unexpected animal prints, Tallia is bringing their signature flair to their overcoat selection this season. We showcasing our three favorite from their current collection to give you a bit of inspiration for an outerwear switch up.
Not So Mellow Yellow
Each day that you step outside over the next few months, there’s a 95% chance that everything is that sad shade of winter grey. So, adding a yellow overcoat is a little to provide your own bit of man-made sunshine.
Stylistically, a yellow overcoat might work well in your wardrobe this time over year as your gravitate toward wearing more earth-tones or monochromatic styles too. The marriage of colors are often unexpected for men, but, are extremely warm.
Pairs Well With:
- Everything in your wardrobe (forreal)
- Looks great with blazers and suits because it’s single-breasted
- Trying layering it with a denim jacket in a washed out light blue
Olive Green Military-Inspired Topcoat – Tallia via Macy’s
Sometime you just a need a tough coat to take on the elements and this military-inspired piece is tough as nails. With the combination of gold hardware and olive green wool body, you have a mixture of European military style, married with traditional menswear.
What’s the real standout with this piece? It’s all about the details! It’s double-breasted, so you’ll have added warmth. The inner lining is quilted & adorned with a floral pattern, meaning more warmth with style. And, that gold hardware is regal, so it’s the perfect juxtaposition to streetstyle pieces like denim
Pairs Well With:
- Most items in your wardrobe
- Looks best with casual pieces and can perfectly elevate a streetwear look
- A cable knit turtleneck sweater (DO IT!)
Wild Side But Make It Corporate
Snake Print Trench – Tallia available at Macy’s
Yeah, we’re keeping those animal prints rolling into the colder months too. Obviously, if you’re rocking a snake skin print coat to work, you must:
- Be confident in your style
- A BOSS
- Already have a navy, black or khaki one in your wardrobe. This shouldn’t be your first trench
How To Make It Work
If you’re wearing it to work, pair it with darker tone pieces like a black or navy suit. Because the colorway is subdued in brown, it’s easy to wear as a dressier piece without call too much attention. However, you’re going to be calling some attention to yourself for good reason in this coat.
