Being that it’s about 20 degrees outside right now, heading outside presents quite the challenge — think several layers topped off by a big coat. While braving the arctic temps is never fun, there’s a simple little pre-fall styling trick you can try right now to add a little pop to dreary winter dressing. Much has been said about the return to a defined waist this pre-fall; designers are even applying this belted aesthetic to outerwear. At Burberry Prorsum, a camel coat gets a whimsical and feminine touch with a bow belt; Calvin Klein nips in at the waist by adding a slim brown belt to a muted orange cocoon coat; and at Diane Von Furstenberg, a dark embossed leather coat gets tucked in with a hefty two-tone belt.
