16 Haute Couture Coats from Anna Wintour's Closet
If you're looking for outerwear inspiration, look no further than Vogue's Grande Madame, Anna Wintour herself. The woman is obsessed with coats. Massive puffs of fur, clean-cut trenches, conceptually-dyed jackets — it doesn't matter. If it's warm, long, and eye-catching enough to sit front row at NYFW, Wintour will wear it.
This is classic Wintour — a collarless long coat with a pattern that’s visually arresting, but never breaks the law.
Robin's egg blue
Wintour tip #1: When wearing a springtime color, always pose before a sea of people in black.
There’s something slightly insane about this look, but she’ll give you the death stare if you say so.
The nouveau trench
“Why yes, this is a reimagination of the World War I British Army classic.”
Velvet and flowers
Is it disrespectful to say that this coat looks like something we’d want to snuggle up inside?
Wintour tip #2: Don’t say “shapeless,” say “body-unconscious.”
Everything about Wintour is restrained — including this barely-there snakeskin print — except for…
Fur and leather
…her love of fur. As you might have guessed, PETA and Wintour aren’t BFFs.
Big fur collar…
Bigger fur collar…
An intense trench
Biggest fur collar, with bonus… wrist fur?
Wintour tip #3: Wear your animal prints like you wear your favorite blanket.
It’s like living inside a cloud…
A rare burst of surrealist color and pattern.
Wintour tip #4: Art is for wearing, not framing.
And last but not least, here’s Wintour in an adorably casual look, sleeves rolled up, and clearly worried about the next issue.
