This Coat Style Is Easily One of the Biggest Trends at Fashion Week

Merely glance over the best street style looks from Copenhagen Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week, and you'll notice one key trend: Everyone is wearing a checked coat of sorts. Already, it looks like this is the most popular outerwear trend for winter 2018. While the print has been on our blazers for some time, it's now all over wintry jackets. Call it the Burberry effect, after the brand resurrected its iconic checks for its S/S 18 show, but it's not just the British fashion house's colours being worn. From red and black to pink to green and every other colour in between, it appears that any version goes. It's not just reserved for designer brands, either; we're also seeing checked coats on the high street. This is all rather brilliant news as it gives us an excuse to get a brand-new winter coat.
