For those looking to secure a new outwear piece for fall, it can be tempting to go straight for a trend-forward statement coat — but not so fast. Try searching, instead, for one that's both practical and timeless — this way, it's guaranteed to get years of use in your wardrobe. (Not to mention, it'll stretch your investment that much further.) A faithful, wear-everywhere trench coat may instantly come to mind, and it's with good reason. The long, lean silhouette can look different every time, with near-endless styling options that can take it from fall to spring and back again. Here to pluck inspiration from is Hailey Bieber's trench coat outfit arsenal, all of which have proved (and re-proved) the limitless versatility of the silhouette.
After a summer of smart blazer looks, Bieber broke out the staple outerwear piece (as she ritualistically does each season) on Sep. 27, during Milan Fashion Week. The slick ensemble befittingly featured a coat from Versace's Spring/Summer 2021 collection, with oversized spherical hardware that added a splash of drama. The demure silhouette is a quieter alternate to her coats from seasons past, which have included faux fur-pelted leather slickers and clover-colored menswear trenches. Still, it proves the theory that trenches can be worn anywhere and everywhere — all it takes is the right footwear. According to Bieber, that means sporty sneakers for errands, heeled sandals for evening wear, and, for everything in between, well-heeled booties.
