out·er·wear [ou-ter-wair] noun
1. garments, as raincoats or overcoats, worn over other clothing for warmth or protection outdoors; overclothes
2: clothing, as dresses, sweaters, or suits, worn over undergarments.The definition of outerwear sums it up as clothing worn over other clothing. We use jackets, vests and coats as a form of protection from the elements, from ourselves and from others. I have always been fascinated by peoples choice in outerwear. Did they choose their outerwear strictly for looks or personal protection?
My closet is full of different outerwear for different occasions, some for driving, other for sports and some just for fashions sake.
A great coat has always made me fell safe and hopefully keep me warm.
In the following pictures I have chosen just a few of my favorites for fall with a focus on texture and shape.
I hope you enjoy my picks as much as I enjoy a great coat.
