Peter Som New York Fashion Week Fall 2014 Rethinks the Coat, Makes It Sexy

New York Fashion Week is only on Day 2, but a prevailing message may be emerging. The coat is no longer just for keeping warm: It is a statement piece.

First BCBG wowed with fur covered coats and muffs, signaling a return of luxurious outerwear. (No grown woman should be as excited as I am about muffs coming back.) Now, Peter Som has turned the idea of the classic winter trench on its head with his incorporation of print and pattern. He also proves a coat can make a woman look just as sexy as a little black dress. Who knew? Here are 8 looks sure to make you rethink that plain old pea coat from two winters ago.

Pretty sure everyone at the party will stop and stare when you walk in… in a good way.

The baby sister to the previous coat. Can’t you see this with leather pants and black booties?

Reminds me of a Chinese water color painting. The pattern actually makes this coat feminine.

Who would take this off? By far the sexiest coat I have ever seen.

Perfect for layering both in winter and summer. And the chevron print gives any girl curves.

Another sleeveless layering piece, but the fur covered peplum takes it to a whole other level.

Hotter than hot cocoa.
