You don't have to be Batman or Robin to pull off the caped crusader look; in fact, it looks even better in real-life. While the silhouette's not exactly new, it can pose a bit of a challenge as it's overlooked in favor of simpler coat shapes. But don't fear — we're here to help you decode the cape coat with five fresh ways to style it right. It's more versatile than you think — and the proof is all inside. From a look that's perfect for your weekend routine to a classic play on sweater dress styling, just click on to see and shop our favorite looks.
Does the name Duro Olowu sound familiar to you? While we were first turned onto the London-based Nigerian designer when Michelle Obama was spotted in his brightly colored wares last Summer, we promise you — come March 1 — you will be singing the praises of Duro Olowu, too. And here's why. Olowu has teamed up with JCPenney to put forth a massive, albeit very impressive, lineup that includes his signature mix of prints on everything from long flowy maxi dresses and silky blouse-and-trouser sets, to hard-shell luggage and bold dish sets (if you dare). To see it is to believe it, and soon enough, we'll be able to share the full collaboration with you. Until then, think faded brocade textures, statement jewelry (he even enlisted Iris Apfel to help with this one!), bags that are just as functional as they are fashionable, and, oh yeah, everything is priced under $100. Yes, there's some waiting involved here, but in the meantime get to know Olowu a little better below.

On what this collaboration is all about: Everything I did with this is new, so it's not a "greatest hits" collection. I wanted to create looks that were based on my ideas of American classics, all with a global flair. I think America already has a tradition of classics — the perfect pants, the perfect trench coat — and I wanted to give it that extra oomph. I don't want people to think 'oh, he just took all the things that sold well for him over the years and put it here,' because I didn't. This is all new, they should become the new classics.
On why he's drawn to bold prints: I'm always looking at textiles from all over the world because I think people travel a lot in their minds. That doesn't necessarily mean you have to go somewhere and see them [the textiles] in person. If I can bring it into your home, that would be great.
President Barack Obama was reelected for a second term last night, and when he took the stage in Chicago to give his victory speech, his leading ladies — wife Michelle Obama, and daughters, Malia and Sasha — were by his side to celebrate. For such a momentous (not to mention, historical) occasion, the first lady styled up a beautiful magenta dress by Michael Kors. Fun fact: this wasn't the first time she's worn it! Want to know more? Get all the details in today's Fab Flash. On Allison McNamara: Forever 21 top, House of Harlow necklace.
From casual lunch dates to black-tie affairs, Olivia Palermo's style is always on point, and her latest look didn't disappoint. At a private press party for Harvey Nichols in Liverpool, Olivia layered up in a contrast-cuff sweater, slick black leggings, and a cream cowl-neck coat, then slid on blue suede pumps for a pop of color. Her dewy makeup, effortless side braid, and minimal accessories — pearl stud earrings, a gold Cartier love bracelet ($5,575), and matching watch — completed her sweet style perfectly. Bundle up in a cowl-collar coat, two-tone sweater, faux leather Emily D leggings ($68), and blue suede pumps for a flawless Fall look just like Olivia.
With Fall here, celebrities are fully embracing coats. Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez have opted for black and white outerwear, while Penelope Cruz and Kim Kardashian are all about slick black leather trench coats. Penelope sported her Versace coat as a dress with black platform pumps while promoting her new flick Twice Born in Rome, while Kim also belted her black leather trench and wore it with black over-the-knee Tom Ford boots and oversize wrap Rick Owens sunglasses in London. If you want to get in on this badass celeb-approved outerwear trend, shop similar coats below. This Max Studio black leather trench coat ($398, originally $798) is our favorite — great price and quality.

Emma Roberts knows how to punch up any outfit with the right accessories. Lately she's been adding sass via white Nanette Lepore for Vogue Eyewear cat-eye sunglasses and we can't forget her fabulous Jerome Dreyfuss leopard bag. And now the actress was spotted rocking our favorite hat of the season, this black Rag & Bone fedora ($175). We love the wide brim and the cool leather band. It would spice up any bad hair day in a second. Her two-tone satchel is quite eye-catching, too! Here is a similar one from Reed Krakoff ($1,090) that we also adore. Add Emma's exact fedora to your Fall mix and watch how it will take your cozy ensembles to another level.
While promoting Breaking Dawn Part 2 in NYC, Kristen Stewart showed off her latest street style: a two-tone leather jacket by Belstaff and these Hudson cropped black tuxedo jeans ($198). The actress finished her casual-cool outfit with signature Keds sneakers and a basic black Joe's Jeans tank. Tuxedo jeans are all the rage right now, and we recommend investing in Kristen's exact pair because it's black on black and will go with everything in your wardrobe. Dress them down with sneakers like the actress did or dress them up with a pair of killer sandals or booties and a blazer. For an office-appropriate look, sport your tuxedo jeans with a silky white blouse and classic pumps.
While running around NYC, Katie Holmes has been showing off her new Fall bag: this red Derek Lam camera bag ($1,390), which also comes in tan and black. If you recall, camera bags gained popularity during Summer and they're still going strong. If you've been wanting to get in on the cool trend, we recommend Katie's red Derek Lam bag because it has an undeniably rich hue that would look good with any outfit, it's small but roomy enough to fit your necessities, and the crossbody strap means you can be hands free while running all your errands.
