Long gone are the days when you can leave your house sans an essential top layer. Coat season — which in fashion lingo is often referred to as sweater weather, boot season, among others — is officially in full swing, and the most stylish celebs are already gravitating toward two major outerwear trends. First, leather trenches à la Kaia Gerber and Bella Hadid are bound to be everywhere in the coming weeks. And secondly, fusing the aforementioned buttery material with a tried-and-true wintertime silhouette is Ciara's beige leather puffer coat. Yes, it's as cool (and cozy) as it sounds, so grab your wallets, and get ready to scoop up this key cold-weather piece, stat.
The music mogul knows the makings of a show-stopping outfit — even when she's not walking down the red carpet at a glamorous event. And she's been serving up major sartorial goodness the last few weeks. On Oct. 30, the singer arrived at Build Studios in NYC, wearing a one-tone look that was anything but boring, thanks to an intriguing mix of textures and styles.
The base of her outfit consisted of a beige, buttery soft leather button-down from Carmen and a pair of wide-leg, high-waisted trousers rendered in a similar neutral hue. The pant's flowing silhouette and long length called for a bit of height, which came in the form of nude pointed-toe pumps that ever-so-slightly peeked out from the bottoms.
But Ciara wasn't done there. The essential finishing touch — essential because the temperatures are steadily dropping — was a leather puffer jacket, also from Carmen.
The topper, which is plucked from the brand's Fall 2019 collection, is oversized in the best way, deeming it the perfect top piece to throw on over even your bulkiest of sweaters.
In typical Ciara fashion, though, she kept the styling of the jacket inherently cool, nonchalantly throwing it over her shoulders for just the right amount of warmth.
Although there are countless outerwear trends to sift through in 2019, from leather trench coats to duvet-inspired toppers, there's something so cool about Ciara's leather puffer — it fuses cloud-like comfort with the edginess of a leather jacket, and what's better than that?
