Choosing a wear-with-everything coat sounds like a grand idea on the first day of fall, but come mid-season, you may find yourself in a serious style rut. While getting the most miles out of this essential layer is undeniably practical, your topper is often your only visible piece in chilly temps, with your begging-to-be-seen outfit sadly cloaked underneath. It's time we give the trusty fall coat more credit than just a barrier between you and frostbite. So for the sake of your personal outfit enjoyment (and dry-cleaning tab), we recommend finding a few that can take turns.

Where to start? Thanks to the unique style POV of NYC DJ, photographer, and all-around mega babe Leslie Kirchhoff, we've curated the four coats you need this season and how to style them. From an animal-print stunner to a classic camel peacoat, see how the resident cool girl fuses Banana Republic's new outerwear into her own self-described "simple, boyish, and classic" style. With this quartet, your fall looks will have no chill (literally).
