ESC: Hailey Baldwin, Dare to Wear

Fact: Coats aren't just for keeping you warm anymore.

It used to be that your outerwear's purpose was to cover up whatever you were wearing underneath. In some instances this might still be true, but it's definitely not the case when it comes to Hailey Baldwin's amazing $3,326 Haider Ackermann houndstooth coat (a.k.a. don't put your miniskirts away just yet).

The statement-making trench is not only part of the model's off-duty outfit, it's the focal point. She's successfully using the piece to make her suede mini and over-the-knee boot look fall-appropriate.

Dare to wear your jacket open—it'll help tie your whole ensemble together while adding some major personality—and choose the right one for you. Go for a coat as bold and patterned as Hailey's or maybe you're looking for something subtle like the camel H&M number above. Whichever you choose, just make sure it's the length of your entire look.

Have some fun with it!
