Sure, pants, boots, and sweaters are necessities for cold weather, but today, we’re all about coats. Here are a few of our favorite winter coat trends of the season, plus some of our top picks and recommendations for each.
This year, the puffer is back in a big way – and with varieties we haven’t seen before. Some of our favorite new twists on the old puffer style include statement collars, pleather fabrics, and metallic sheens. If you wrote off these coats before, it’s time to reconsider!
The Quilted Coat
This versatile style tends to be a bit thinner than a puffer jacket, meaning it can serve you well into the spring and fall. Quilted coats can have classic diamond or square patterns, swirls, and more and come in fabrics and colors that are both funky and sleek.
The Classic Camel Wool Coat
This camel wool coat is a classic for a reason: The shade looks great alongside other neutrals, plus it looks just as good in a formal office setting as it does during a casual grocery run. We will always love this coat style – no matter the time or place.
Shackets, or “shirt jackets,” tend to be more like a light jacket than a coat, but they make for great layering pieces over turtlenecks and underneath a warmer coat when needed. The shackets trending right now vary from neutrals to plaid patterns.
Winter is the perfect excuse to grab a new coat (or maybe a few of them – a girl has to have options, right?). Consider these styles as you hit the racks at your local department store, or use our picks as inspiration for your online shopping journey.
