While it's common knowledge that celebrities have access to an unlimited supply of clothes, that certainly doesn't mean they're opposed to re-wearing something. And when actors consistently turn to the same wardrobe staple in lieu of the countless others they could get their hands on, you know it really must be good. Enter, Kourtney Kardashian's leather coat: the outerwear piece the reality star can't seem to part ways with — and for good reason. One look at the brown, buttery staple, and you'll be convinced to add a leather trench to your cold-weather lineup ASAP.
The oldest of the Kardashian sisters has long mastered the art of piecing together a look that's simple but still incredibly fashion-forward, typically relying on one hero piece to take her uncomplicated outfit to new heights. In the summer months, it was her sleek black kitten-heel mules that stole the show and elevated her casual, daytime ensembles. And now, it's a longline leather coat by contemporary label Theory that's quickly become her new go-to.
On Nov. 26, the 39-year-old stepped out in the leather trench, which features notch lapels, a single button-front closure, and a flap pocket. She paired it with coordinating dark-brown velvet flare pants by Faith Connexion, a simple black T-shirt, and classic black heels for an nighttime ensemble the struck the perfect balance between comfortable and cool.
Kardashian has already donned the sleek outerwear piece twice during the month of Nov. alone, and it's very likely it will continue to make an appearance in her street style outfits over the next few months. On Nov. 8, she was first spotted wearing the trench while out and about in Los Angeles. That time, she teamed it with the same velvet pants, but there were subtle differences in her look. She swapped the black tee for a white logo-printed one, opted for snakeskin-print booties, and wore her hair in a tight, slicked-back ponytail rather than down and wavy.
Get The Look
It's no secret that the top layer in your look can take any basic outfit to a whole new level of cool. While a faux-fur coat is a great, cozy pick (as is a tried-and-true jean jacket), this season, why not step outside your wheelhouse and throw on a longline leather trench instead? The outerwear piece still has that cool, rugged vibe, but because of its sleek, long silhouette, it tends to feel slightly more refined and dressy.
As for how to style it this season? Your possibilities are endless. And, best of all, it's super easy to wear. Want to sport your go-to jeans-and-tee combo on a night out, but afraid you'll be underdressed? Add in the leather trench to instantly take the look from everyday casual to nighttime polished.
