Of all the garments that make up a fall closet, coats are most important. They make up your outer shell, and are the one piece that you're seen most in when walking on the street or waiting on a subway platform. So, I always like to invest in a few that would work with a variety of outfits — and seasons — like this ASOS number.
This jacket is the perfect investment to start trickling into your outfits at the tail-end of summer with its cropped sleeves and graphic black-and-white pattern that can be worn with a dozen different looks. Here, I'm wearing it with boyfriend jeans, boots, and a hat to top everything off — it looks almost Charlie Chaplin-inspired.

Now that you've seen two examples of why you need a printed coat, go on and find your own patterned topper for fall.
