Style Right Now: 21 Patterned Coats, Street Style

The weather has been perfect in Boston—sunny, slightly breezy, just a tinge of crisp. Not that I’d really know; I pretty much haven’t left the house in almost a week I have so much work. But the living rooms windows are wide open. All too soon it will be jacket time and then we’ll be pulling on serious down puffers and shearling lined boots. But right now, we’re in the throes of autumn.

Here’s what the street style stars are wearing atop their casually studied outfits. Lots of patterned toppers, from boxy checks to graffiti print along with a floral or too. There are also animal skin prints, plaids, and marled tweedy coats. Here are 21 patterned coats, street style.

Get the Look: Party Dresses From All the Best Designers

Selecting the holiday party dresses here was more fun than going shopping for the real thing. The list of designers reads like a Vogue editor’s Fashion Week to-do list. There are 42 different designers represented here, each dress more fun than the next. Probably you won’t be able to actually buy many of these, thanks to the sky high prices, but still, they are divine.

If I were going to a holiday party, and I could wear any of them (and this is in dreamland, where I have the perfect body to match my bottomless wallet), I think I’d opt for the Rachel Roy or Marc Jacobs, though I do also love the drape-y metallic Vivienne Westwood and the darling Nina Ricci. I also love the idea of the Isabel Marant with black booties, topped with a leather moto jacket. I suppose it depends on the occasion. They’re all pretty fabulous. Which holiday party dress would you wear to a fancy fete?
