Any other winter we would say “get a classic coat,” but coming out of a year that was anything but expected, we are advocating for unconventional coats to brighten up the fashion scene of 2021. Sure, we still love a camel coat or a quintessential puffer, but what seems to be making a big splash this year is the statement coat. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites that you’re sure to see roming the streets of the most fashion-forward cities. Why not grab one for your closet?
Unreal Fur Maze Coat ($269, click here)
This is our favorite brand for when you love the look of fur, but don’t want to wear it. Unreal Fur makes the most stunning faux fur styles that are never short on elegance. We love this style for its snake-like print. It’s surprisingly versatile, as it can dress up a jeans-and-tee outfit or complement your dressier looks.
Eaves Blake Coat ($458, click here)
This jacket checks the box for another big trend this year: leather. A trench-style coat made of leather (or pleather) is a can’t-lose move for 2021 dressing. We love this style specifically for its length, faux fur collar, and wrap belt design. It doesn’t get edgier or more flattering than this coat, and it will go with pretty much any outfit you throw its way.
Anine Bing Elodie Coat ($699, click here)
This super-elegant herringbone coat is the perfect mix between statement and classic. While it’s trend-forward, you’ll easily be able to wear this coat for years to come without worry that it will go out of style. If you’re shopping for a coat that turns heads while still maintaining a sense of timelessness, this is the coat for you
BB Dakota x Steve Madden (104.30, click here)
If you want to go neutral, add some fringe. The fringe/western trend is alive and well in 2021, so adding this element to your outerwear is a strong move. This jacket strikes the perfect balance between a menswear coat and a feminine piece by artfully mixing design details.
Free People Kit Puffer Jacket (but fits like a coat) ($168, click here)
Say goodbye to your standard cropped puffer and hello to this longline, vibrant puffer from Free People. In two bold colors with contrast underneath, this is the coat you’ll want for functionality, warmth, and style this winter. Finished with a hood and zip-front closure, this is the coat jacket to liven up any basic outfit.
