The Most Covetable Coats to Wear This Season

Fall is in the air, and winter is lurking around the corner, so we’d say it’s officially time to buy a brand-new coat.

A great topper should do four things: handle the weather, keep you warm, make you feel good, and finally, it should make a statement in its simplicity, it’s silhouette, or it’s eye-catching color.

The good news? The new season offers a multihued feast of styles to suit every personality. From heritage prints to high-gloss leather and cozy shearling styles, we’ve rounded up the must-have coats at every price point. Click through to see how fashion girls are wearing theirs.

A coat in this season’s of-the-moment checks, plaid, or herringbone is guaranteed to be a street style hit.

Whether you opt for a longer silhouette or keep it cropped, a ’70s-esque shearling coat goes with everything this season–from jeans and a turtleneck to a slip dress and tights.

A chic trench has the ability to make any outfit instantly more sophisticated. Not to mention, it serves as our trusty hero in the autumn rain. 

The puffer jacket continues to reign supreme for the style set when temps drop low. This season, go for exaggerated shapes in an array of bright, poppy colors. Consider this the next best thing to wrapping yourself up in a cozy duvet. But don’t forget your skinny jeans and heels to offset the volume.

Take note from our favorite fashion influencers, and stand out from the crowd in a shiny, vinyl, or patent piece. While black is the dominant hue, there are plenty of glossy offerings in shades of red, blue, green, and beige. Get your shine on. 

While you’ll inevitably spend more on your dry cleaning bill, there is nothing more sophisticated than a frosted white coat in winter. Wear with an unexpected pop of color like an of-the-moment red handbag, or keep the look slick in head-to-toe neutrals. 

FAUX FUR

Bold faux furs in a rainbow of colors were seen all over the fall runways from Miu Miu to Shrimps. Captivate the crowds in these wearable options.

See-through plastic macs are undoubtedly fall’s surprise hit. And there are no signs of the trend slowing down after its dominant presence at Chanel’s spring runway show. You can look forward to getting caught in the rain in one of these city-slick options. 

If you haven’t already heard, red is the color of fall. Jump on the trend in a magnetic overcoat (a double-breasted version will win you extra fashion brownie points). Consider this the equivalent of a SAD lamp.

When there’s a biting chill in the air, who doesn’t want to feel like they’re being cuddled by a big snuggly teddy bear? Take comfort in the dramatic proportions of an ultra-cozy coat this season. Wear with skinny jeans and an equally oversize colorful handbag. 

Seen on the runways in a plethora of colors, leather is undoubtedly having a major moment this fall. From versatile, cropped versions to long and lean silhouettes, go the extra mile, and pair yours with high necks and long boots. 

You can never go wrong with a timeless topcoat in camel, black, or gray. A simple and sophisticated knee or calf-length coat will last you a lifetime.
