What happens outside the fashion shows has become just as important as what happens on the runways. The street style at the Menswear and Haute Couture shows has demonstrated that if there’s one single item you must own this season, it’s the right transitional coat. To make it easy for you, we’ve found just the right coat for each style type.

Classic style type

Paris Street Style Haute Coutre Classic Coats

If you’re Classic Style Type, you go for simple, clean and traditional pieces. A straight, sleek long wool coat with skinny jeans is your go-to look.

Chic style type

Tommy Ton Street Style Menswear Coats

If your style type is Chic, your coat has sharp and powerful lines, perhaps even boxy, that come together in an elegant way.

Bohemian style is relaxed and lived-in, just like a beautiful and cozy cape. A lot of accessories is a must!
