Wardrobe Essential: Distinctive Topcoats

This season’s topcoat is all about strong lines—belted waists that create a powerful silhouette, and textural fabrics and fur trims that make you want to bundle up on a blustery night. Here are seven styles from the runways of Milan, New York, and Paris that provide polished looks that won’t wither even in the most extreme weather.

Dries Van Noten’s winter wool plaid looks fresh in autumnal shades of burnt orange and burgundy. (Price upon request; www.driesvannoten.be)

Sleek is the operative word for Belstaff’s black trench-like topcoat. ($2,995; www.belstaff.com)

Trussardi’s unstructured camel-colored wool coat is the perfect topper over a suit. ($2,625; www.trussardi.com
