It’s never too early to start thinking about coats. From transitional toppers to ultra-cozy styles, fall and winter outerwear is important no matter where you live (if that happens to be in a sunny climate, a seasonal jaunt to cooler temps is your opportunity to bust out the heavier layers). Many key looks hit a sartorial high note this season, from timeless to elaborate—fashion girls will relish at the extensive range of impactful offerings. Witness the seven must-know trends ahead. Then continue on to shop our edit of coats to master each trend at every price point.
By now it's abundantly clear that red is the must-wear shade for fall. A classically shaped topper in the poppy shade is bold, yet timeless.
From tartan for houndstooth, checks are another classic look with a modern update. From asymmetrical to oversized to embellished, we highly recommend getting mad for plaid.
Seventies vibes are strong this Autumn, and shearling is the cosiest way to embrace the look. From all-over fuzz to accents juxtaposed with leather and patent, there's a version for everyone.
For a high impact look, glossy finishes from patent leather to vinyl to PVC are stunning when rendered in sleek silhouettes. Pro tip: it's a perfect choice in rainy weather.
Go bold in an embellished coat with artsy appeal—from multicolored threads to crafty fringe to hand-painted, maximalism is the name of the game here.
Similar to shearling, fuzzy coats come in a spectrum of hues and silhouettes, an ideal choice in icy cold temperates. From nubby and oversized to cropped with cozy accents, this look is a must, in faux fur, of course.
Puffers were the practical fashion trend du jour last year. In the new season, the latest take is done in prints from micro florals to Paisley to embroidered.
