Although some parts of the country are still experiencing 80-degree weather, temperatures will officially drop soon and it's time to prepare our wardrobes with a new coat (or three).
There's nothing wrong with a trusty black peacoat (it's a classic choice!), but a fresh, trendy topper will start the season strong and it'll provide the warmth and coverage you need, without sacrificing style -- because there's nothing worse than when a boring coat minimizes the thrilling outfit underneath.
To help you score some solid options this fall, we've gathered 15 designs that'll get you excited for a colder forecast, including a similar, affordable version of Markle's cobalt stunner.

GET THE LOOK:
The Duchess of Sussex rocked the bright coat trend flawlessly as her cobalt topper popped against her all-black ensemble. Vibrant shades of blue, yellow, pink, red and green, from pastels to jewel tones, are fun, unexpected alternatives to the neutrals we often resort to.
The classic, checked print is back for fall (but did it really go anywhere?). It's timeless but still appears modern in sleek, tailored silhouettes that complement everything from dresses to denim to trousers. You won't regret investing in this versatile piece.
It's a statement look for sure, but with its ubiquitous presence you might as well treat the animal print as a neutral. Snakeskin, zebra or leopard -- top off your ensemble with these wild, exotic patterns to lend high fashion flair.
