9 Coat Trends for Fall

The Coat – it can be a game changer. Your statement piece when you enter the room. The winter season is fraught with challenges for the fashionista. Choosing the right winter coat(s) can be overwhelming. After all, a fabulous coat is an investment piece. Coat trends for this season are vast and varied. With styles changing so rapidly from one year to another, honing in on the coat trend that reflects your lifestyle and needs can be daunting.

Keep these points in mind when you decide to buy a winter coat:

  • Where do you want to wear the coat (office, leisure, all purpose)
  • Buy with a 3-4 year wear life in mind – value/investment
  • Color is paramount. Choose wisely and keep your options open
  • Versatility for various occasions and works with existing wardrobe choices

A great winter coat is waiting for you – choose one or several from the coat trends pictured.

TREND: Happy Spring Shades

Coat Trends - Happy Spring Shades

J Crew, Boss, Michael Kors

Designers merged seasons and gave winter coats a refreshing spin in cheery colors, like bubble gum pink, orange sherbet and baby blue. Spice up your winter look with color!

TREND: Patchwork

Coat Trends - Patchwork

Proenza Shouler, Tory Burch, Ralph Lauren

There’s nothing DIY about these patchwork coats. Designers took a sophisticated approach with graphic shapes, furs and muted tones that felt super luxe. This coat trend is for the woman who embraces making a bold statement.

TREND: Shearling

Coat Trends - Shearling

Rebecca Taylor, BCBG Max Azria, Coach

The fluffy material continues to blanket outerwear. It has become a staple in the coating world. Warm, snuggly and textural, it’s a coat trend that keeps on giving.

TREND: Graphic Furs

Coat Trends - Graphic Furs

Gabriela Hurst, Oscar de la Renta, Jason Wu

Furs got the statement treatment with color-blocked squares, playful intersecting lines and bold windowpane grids.

TREND: Camel Leather

Coat Trends - Camel Leather

Derek Lam, The Row, Banana Republic

Nothing can beat that rich camel hue. Simply divine. The best part – it works for every silhouette: A-line, fit and flare and trench.

TREND: Cropped Pea Coats

Coat Trends - Cropped Pea Coats

Tommy Hilfiger, Frame Denim, Tibi

The Classic Navy Pea coat gets a boxy crop for fall. The silhouette is also fabricated in checks, menswear plaids and beautiful Melton wools.

TREND: Minimalist

Coat Trends - Minimalist

Delpazo, Prabal Gurung, Victoria Beckham

Touches of interest like a sculpted bodice, lace up lapels and raw edges put a playful finish on otherwise super minimalist coats. The length remains long for this silhouette.

TREND: Oversized

Coat Trends - Oversized

Public School, Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham

Take fit out of the equation with over-sized shapes (think sloping shoulders, elongated sleeves and a shin grazing length) for a devil may care “borrowed-from-the-boys” attitude. Be careful with this silhouette. It can look sloppy.

TREND: Toggles

Coat Trends - Toggles

Prabal Gurung, Derek Lam, Altuzarra

Toggles get a high-fashion grown-up makeover that ranges from crisp and minimal to edgy and bold.
