Do you find yourself standing in your front hall closet looking for that perfect topper after spending time coordinating your perfect winter outfit? Often times, it is the last thing we think about when we are getting ready and it really is the first thing people see when we arrive! Well, we have been looking for the best toppers this season and have compiled a list of toppers to top off your looks.
Whether you are looking for a great scarf to throw over on a chilly day or a faux leather jacket, it is nice to have a choice during the morning rush. Having something available and easy to throw on, for varied temperatures really helps us when we are in a hurry.
The best casual toppers this season
The puffer – Both of my daughters picked the puffer as the jacket you need for winter 2017! My oldest hasn’t taken hers off (albeit the summer season) since she bought it! Shhhhhh, I’m also guilty of sneaking in to her closet to take hers for the warmth factor.
The leather jacket (similar)- I am a huge fan of the leather jacket, and wear mine day and night. It is a great transitional piece between fall and winter! I am now wearing a leather jacket as a part of my outfit and putting a coat over top on those cooler evenings out. A leather jacket lasts forever, and is an investment piece you can wear forever.
The teddy bear coat (similar)- This casual coat is on point this season. Everyone will be envious of how cozy you look. This coat is a perfect pairing for denim and looks as cute as a teddy.
The best dressy toppers
The cape – A cape is an unexpected piece that looks effortless! Throw it over a sweater or blazer for that layered look. It’s a versatile piece when working in an office, where one minute you are hot and the next you’re freezing!
The camel coat (similar)- It’s so funny how fashion comes in a full circle! I remember wearing a similar coat when I was in my early 20s! The camel coat has stood the test of time, and I can’t wait to pass this coat on to my daughters!
A velvet statement coat or a pink plaid coat– These toppers are ideal for finishing off a special look for any occasion.
The Anorak -This is a great layering piece and the color goes with anything! The embelished and lightweight fabric makes this piece a great addition to your wardrobe. The length and cut is perfect to throw over almost anything and won’t overwhelm your figure.
