Runway: A robe coat from Richard Chai Fall 2014. Shop: Babaton for Aritzia Jacoby coat, $265, Aritzia.com
It’s two weeks until Labor Day, yet the only thing we want to do is shop for fall. Chalk it up to years of excitement-filled back-to-school prep — that, and the lust-worthy coats we saw coming down the fall/winter runways.
It started with robe-coats at Richard Chai — the plaid one will be ours! Then came nubby shearlings and colorful statement-making furs galore (BTW, Shrimps makes the most awesome faux versions).
If you’re going to blow a rent check on fashion this season, we’d make an argument for outerwear. Here are three of the top fall runway trends and best budget-friendly options.
Runway: Colorful fur came down the Altuzarra Fall 14 runway. Shop: H&M Faux fur jacket, $69.95, HM.com
