“A coat is the first thing people see,” muses Olivia, “so I like to wrap myself in a piece that’s special and distinctive. Something eye-catching but refined.” And while on the streets of New York or the front row in Milan, Olivia made waves in a fresh jewel-rich palette of emeralds, rubies, and sapphire befitting their own security, but without the pretension. “I love graphic coats with intricate embellishments or sophisticated textures,” she says, noting, “the rest of the look can be monotone, making getting dressed easy especially in the colder months.” Below, team OP rounds up some sleek and streamlined options ensuring maximum coverage from autumnal chills.
