Wardrobe Essential: Distinctive Topcoats

Christina Garofalo

This season’s topcoat is all about strong lines—belted waists that create a powerful silhouette, and textural fabrics and fur trims that make you want to bundle up on a blustery night. Here are seven styles from the runways of Milan, New York, and Paris that provide polished looks that won’t wither even in the most extreme weather.

Dries Van Noten’s winter wool plaid looks fresh in autumnal shades of burnt orange and burgundy. (Price upon request; www.driesvannoten.be)

Sleek is the operative word for Belstaff’s black trench-like topcoat. ($2,995; www.belstaff.com)

Canali’s nubby wool-and-angora topcoat, flecked with white, is lined with mink for extra warmth. ($2,095; www.canali.it)

Trussardi’s unstructured camel-colored wool coat is the perfect topper over a suit. ($2,625; www.trussardi.com

Berluti’s brick-colored wool gives the conservative double-breasted topcoat a contemporary edge. ($2,885; 212.439.6400)

Salvatore Ferragamo’s thick shearling-lined, leather-trimmed coat will fend off the fiercest conditions. ($8,400; www.ferragamo.com)

Angelo Galasso’s mohair overcoat with fur trim and antiqued buttons gives evening attire an air of opulence. ($3,800; www.angelogalasso.com)
