Trust Me—Buy These 26 Jackets and Coats

Trust Me—Buy This is a monthly series where our market editor Nicole Eshaghpour makes her favorite fashion finds shoppable for Who What Wear readers.

Hello and welcome to another Trust Me—Buy This story! In case you're new here, today I'll be sharing my favorite items of the moment with more of a personal spin than your usual roundup. With a little help from my shopping-focused Instagram account, @trustmebuythis, where I post my own (mediocre) snaps of items I'm into at the moment, I get to both show and tell you about some of my most-loved fashion items in a range of categories. 

On today's agenda is none other than fall and winter-ready outerwear. From blazers to leather layers to classic wool pieces, these are the jackets and coats I can't help but recommend to everyone for the months ahead. Mixed in with brands I personally own and can vouch for are some newer items and labels I can only hope will eventually make it from my wish list to my closet, including a range of both trends and classics. To get started reading about all my picks and, of course, shopping, just keep scrolling.

Yes, blazers are so important they deserve their own category. My tip? If you want to wear them well into winter, opt for an oversize fit (even if it's slight) so that you can layer sweaters underneath as the temperatures continue to drop.

Whether you opt for a shacket, trench, blazer, or anything else, you'll want to prioritize leather (or, of course, faux leather) pieces this season.

Classic, wool and wool-blend coats and jackets are always in style and perfect for both layering and wearing alone.

While puffers are still a trendy choice among the fashion set, in some cities (such as NYC) they're also a necessity. Luckily, the many cool options out there make finding one you love easy.

Below you'll find the coats and jackets that may not fit into one of the classic categories above but felt too good not to share.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2020, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch 90 Day Fiancé.
