Clearly, the typical trench or pea coats are overrated. Belted coats are officially “in” and we are completely obsessed with this trend, and so are male fashionistas. Easy and functional, belted coats are one of the best ways to amp up your outerwear game this season. Slip on one if you’re going for a quick run to the grocery store or if you’re running late for work and need a quick negative weather outfit fix! Whatever the situation or occasion, belted coats are there for you to “tie one on and go”. We’ve compiled a list of the most popular belted coats at the moment that are rapidly taking over the outerwear trend wagon.
The “Corporate” Belted Coat
Nothing emits more business-y than this belted coat. The buttons and belt keep you snug while the lapels complete the formal vibe of the piece. Depending on what suit you’re wearing underneath, you can interchange between office colours such as beige, navy, and black to create some nice contrast.
