Look, it’s September now. You’ve gotta start thinking about how you’re going to wear coats when the temperatures drop. It may seem like a no-brainer, but based on how all ya faves are wearing them these days, the coolest way to wear a coat this fall is to ... barely wear it.
Allow Bella Hadid, Rihanna, and more to show you the way.

When you’re traveling in between climates as often as Bella Hadid, wearing one at your elbows keeps you ready for whatever might greet you when you step off the plane.
On stage, Rihanna wears hers mid-arm. Now I’ll wear mine mid-arm.

You don’t have to bear bare arms when you do it — follow Kim Kardashian’s lead. Corset optional.
Solange wore her coat like this at Fashion Week, which confirms that it’s the most #FASHUN way to wear your coat in 2016. You had a good run, fashion cape.

When you wear as many fur-trimmed coats as Kylie Jenner, you’re going to get hot. Exposing the tops of your arms to brisk winter arm helps regulate your overall temp. (I have not scientifically proven that fact but it seems accurate.)

That approach must run in the family, as Kendall Jenner has also done it.
Selena GomezSplash News
Much like Rihanna, Selena Gomez knows the value of only partially wearing a jacket on stage. Selena’s example proves that when the circumstance calls for it, you may wear it lower than the elbow.
Gigi HadidGetty Images
Gigi Hadid wore this shearling jacket in June, which explains why she was not fully wearing it. See? The jacket-as-shrug styling allows you to wear unseasonable coats whenever you desire.

No one quite half wears a coat like Ariana Grande half wears a coat, though.
