Once cold-weather season rolls around, there’s one item that quickly becomes an essential when piecing together a proper outfit: the perfect coat — whether that's a tried-and-true wool trench, a faux-fur bomber, or a leather jacket. And although they're a fall and winter requirement, it's no secret that coats can take a serious toll on your bank account. That's what makes Alison Brie's latest outfit so great. The actor scored the most versatile sherpa coat from Old Navy that's equal parts warm, fashionable, and affordable.
When shopping for this key layering component, it’s important make sure it pairs well with your other cold-weather necessities (think: sweaters, denim, boots, scarves, and mittens). You’ll also want something that will elevate a look — Brie’s $85 Old Navy find does both. The actor’s cream-colored sherpa coat features faux-suede lining and a mock neck with a mandarin collar. Its slightly oversized fit makes it a great option to pair over even your bulkiest knits.
Brie donned this plush, autumn staple while out and about in Los Angeles on Oct. 15, styling it with dark-wash skinny jeans and a fitted white t-shirt. She pulled together her outfit with light-brown ankle booties that perfectly complement the faux-suede trim of the coat. Accessories were kept to a minimum, with a deep-red crossbody bag offering a splash of color. Brie finished off the look with soft waves and simple, understated makeup.
Brie’s fall look consisted of easy wardrobe basics, including dark denim and a crisp white tee, but the addition of the sherpa jacket took the simple ensemble to entirely new heights.
Get The Look
Now that fall weather is officially here for good (and winter's chill will follow sooner after), it's time to get serious about investing in good outerwear. Sherpa coats (or their fuzzy, furry cousin, shearling jackets) are not only the coziest picks out there, but they're also amongst the most versatile.
Wear your sherpa or shearling coat like Brie with jeans, a simple top, and ankle booties. Or, swap the denim for a pair of cropped corduroy trousers and trade in the boots for ultra-comfortable sneakers — the styling choices are extensive.
