Speaking of timeless trench coats, it’s no secret that the style staple reigns supreme season after season. When it comes to styling the wardrobe essential, take a cue from this fashion crowd and wear yours from Toteme and J.Crew with sleek pairs of jeans, cozy knitwear, and even a kitten heel or two. Quilted shell jackets topped our spring shopping carts, beloved for their versatility and understated elegance. For fall we’re eyeing Ganni’s glossy quilted coat, and we’re not the only ones. One street-styler opted to wear hers with a cream-colored crewneck, tailored trousers, and a chic pair of city sneakers to match. Classic menswear-inspired items, like oversized tuxedo jackets and blazers, are also crucial to a transitional-outerwear outfit, with noteworthy options from Khaite and Everlane.

Err on the edgier side with leather jackets from Massimo Dutti and Remain Birger Christensen. From the latter, distressed detailing makes all the difference, particularly when styled with a black knee-high boot and plaid miniskirt, as modeled below. And when it comes to transitional closet mainstays, nothing is as evergreen as a delightful denim jacket. Courtesy of the Copenhagen Fashion Week street style scene, 10 chic ways to style the season’s best transitional-outerwear offerings, below.
