Before the trees drop their leaves, it’s time to get a warm and stylish coat or jacket for the fall of 2018.
A jacket or coat is essential when then temperature dips below a certain degree and you have to go outside. It would be wise to wear a coat over club clothes while on the train or on a rainy day. It is up to your discretion whether or not to leave it in the coat check room.
The following is four styles of jacket or coat trending for the fall of 2018, as selected by Slutty Raver Costumes: oversized, vinyl, denim and leather.
Coats are getting bigger, much bigger, during the autumn of 2018. And sunglasses got smaller. Take them from day over office clothes, to night over cocktail dresses.
The Balenciago New Park in Peacock ($3,100) is a massive women’s parka in blue mat nylon. Oversized parkas and padded coats were all over the fall runways in a winter sports inspired motif.
The Acne Studios Funnel Neck Coat ($1,000) comes in both tan and black. Note that this is an oversized funnel neck and not the traditional funnel neck that less exquisite coats have.
In the mid range of the spectrum is the Semicouture Oversized Checkered Coat ($310) that comes in different patterns and colors. The neutral plaid is a great pick for autumn.
At ASOS the Religion Car Coat with Contrast Piping Detail ($219) is tan with a shawl lapel, stud hardware and viscose lining. They style it with lace up booties and a lace maxi skirt.
It looks like the clear plastic trend is not over, but it has spread to outerwear. Vinyl, or polyurethane, is a cheap synthetic plastic that protects you from the elements.
Kwaidan Editions Rubbish Tie-Waist Vinyl Trench Coat (On sale for $972) is a classic trench coat in black vinyl. The knee length Matrix jacket cinches at the waist with a tightening sash.
Fiorrucci suggests you choose the Berty Transparent Jacket ($325) to go with a signature Firoucci angels crop top or tank. Show some skin while still staying relatively dry during rainstorms.
The Topshop Clear Vinyl Trench Coat ($125) comes in transparent green, pink or clear. The outerwear has a retro inspired feel with white piping and popper fastenings.
The Current Mood Nocturnal Fantasy Cropped Jacket ($65) available at Dolls Kill can be worn alone or over an oversized tee. The black vinyl jacket has a pointed collar and an o-ring zipper.
The denim jacket is always a crowd favorite that goes with sneakers, boots or pumps. This season they are extra large and snuggly, and should be layered over other oversized clothes.
Maison Margiela invites you to buy this Blue Oversized Denim Jacket ($1290). Look how excited this model is to wear hers with a shirt dress, leather tote and chunky platform sneakers.
The Alexander Wang Daze Oversized Denim Jacket ($450) comes in an aged, washed indigo. The proportions of the garment are exaggerated to create a modern, androgynous silhouette.
Missguided has a ton of oversized denim jackets to choose from right now, such as the All Over Back Mermaid Sequin Jacket ($67). They also have oversized denim jackets that are full of holes.
The traditional leather jacket has been updated to a leather bomber to be more street fashion. Wear them with track pants and sock boots to be rebellious and streetwise at the same time.
This Gucci x Viacom Leather Bomber with Paramount Logo ($6,300) is embellished with sequins, crystals and beads. Somewhere out there a movie producer has just found the perfect jacket.
Yves Saint Laurent

Behold the Givenchy Paris Knitted Bomber Jacket ($1,460). The leather, black wool and cashmere bomber jacket bears the signature logo embroidered on the back.
This autumn protect yourself from dying of exposure, while still remaining safe from the fashion police and their constant tickets and fines for wear fugly, last season coats. You will surely be able to attract a mate wearing one of these 12 coats and jackets for the fall of 2018.
