Every Coat Trend You Should Be Shopping This Fall
Few items in your closet get as much mileage —— and get seen by more eyes — than your coat. And with Fall in full swing, the time to pick out your hero piece is now. Sure, it's sad to officially say goodbye to sunny days and all the style staples that came with them (straw bags, anyone?), but scoring a showstopping topper will put the skip back in your step.
A great coat pays serious wardrobe dividends: not only does it add extra oomph to an already-awesome outfit, but it makes lazy-day looks appear that much more intentional (just top off your t-shirt and jeans with a statement outerwear option and you'll see what we mean).
To make sure you get the most bang for your buck this Fall, we've assembled a selection of the top trends we're currently lusting after at every price point. From faux fur to high shine, there's a pick here, or several, that will have you feeling warm all over.
Checks and Plaids
If you've had your eye on street style at all this season, you know how important the menswear checked blazer is. So it's no surprise the trend is extending into outerwear. By trying it in a tailored coat version like this Zara Checked Wool Coat ($129), you'll strike a classic, sophisticated note on the daily.
What's red, blue, and perfectly preppy all over? This Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Small Check Tailored Coat ($520), of course.
Channel your inner Brit chick in this ASOS Hooded Check Coat With Rib Funnel Neck ($135).
The ultraglamorous texture associated with everyone from Cruella De Vil to the Kardashians is bolder than ever right now. In cost-effective and cruelty-free versions, furry coats look and feel good on you — and your wallet. We're pretty smitten with this head-turning Anthropologie Printed Faux Fur Coat ($248).
Padded outerwear has a decidedly unfashionable history and usually conjures up images of ski wear, the Michelin man, or Ralphie's little brother trapped in a snowsuit in A Christmas Story. How times have changed. The puffer has officially transitioned into a fashion item, with brands now offering chic options like this Mango Quilted Long Coat ($150) in bold colors and prints.
Over the last few seasons, shearling has gone from rugged to runway. Now, labels are churning out fun and fashionable faux versions that totally hit the must-have mark. In earthy neutrals like this Mother Sherpa Jacket ($345) as well as surprising hues like pale pink and washed-out denim, options abound for every vibe.
Rep your tough and sweet sides at the same time with this Avec Les Filles Faux Shearling Biker Jacket ($199).
Denim shearling? Yep. This Levi's Made & Crafted Denim & Faux Shearling Coat ($373) flips the script on standard suede.
Do the all-black-everything thing in this Calvin Klein Jeans Ortensia Shiny Faux Shearling Coat ($333).
The street style set has been sporting the high-shine thing en masse this season. In addition to miniskirts and skinny pants, patent and vinyl coats have emerged as the tricky trend no one saw coming. The futuristic vibe is actually easier than it seems, with pieces like this Miss Selfridge Red Vinyl Mac ($115) turning any simple outfit into a super stunner.
The mixed textures of this Opening Ceremony Reversible Furry Patent Coat ($695) give you all the outerwear options your heart desires.
Trouble committing to one trend at once? Not anymore. This Wanda Nylon Houndstooth Tweed-Paneled Textured-Vinyl Coat ($1,210) lets you mix two simultaneously.
The functional has finally become fashionable. Parkas used to be strictly tundra fare, but they've taken a trendy turn of late, including bright faux fur details and sophisticated colorways. In up-to-date iterations like this Velvet by Graham & Spencer Kanya Faux Fur Lined Parka ($260), you'll feel warm and look cool.
Do streetwear the designer way in this Marc Jacobs Faux-Fur-Trimmed Tech-Twill Parka ($1,200).
Mixed materials make this River Island Khaki Green Faux Fur Trim Parka ($230) super special and snuggly.
