Lately, their (or should I say your?) winter outfits have showcased some of the coolest coats out there. After looking through all your best outfit shots, it became abundantly clear that there are a handful of coat trends you're prioritizing over all the others this winter. From polished wool overcoats to vintage-inspired fur trimming and cozy teddy fleeces, get ready for some seriously amazing outerwear moments. Scroll down to see which winter coat trends our readers are loving the most right now, and then shop our picks within each one.


Put fur (or faux-fur) trimming on a coat, and it immediately looks far more luxe and a bit retro, too. This time last year, we couldn't bat an eyelash without seeing one of the fuzzy-trimmed Saks Potts toppers that ignited the trend, but now that there are dozens of new options from your favorite retailers, expect the style to only get more and more notorious.

Teddy Effect

Meet the coziest coats in existence right now. Teddy coats aren't anything new—they've been around for a while now—but according to the outfits I'm seeing from our chic readers, they're back in a major way this season.

Neutral Puffers

For those of us who live in seriously cold winter climates, a puffer coat isn't merely a fashion choice; it's a straight-up necessity. But thankfully, puffers are getting chicer with each passing season, so we're pleased to share that this will be the year of the neutral-toned puffer. Beige, tan, and cream are all excellent choices when you want to give your standard black one a rest.

Shop the trend:

Sophisticated Wool Coats

Is there anything chicer than a classic blazer-style wool coat? I think not. I just invested in one this winter, and I can honestly say it's changed how I dress for the better. It almost doesn't matter what you wear underneath it since the polished coat will ensure your overall look is a sophisticated one.
