Admittedly, I am a little late to writing this A/W Coat Edit (wishlist) that I had planned in my head since August/September, however life has been busy as I am sure you know what I mean! On the other hand, we have a good few months still ahead of us where the weather is definitely going to get colder (if it is also autumn/winter where you live), and one of the best ways to feel better about dressing for arctic conditions is by having an amazing coat on and being asked constantly ‘where’s your coat from?’. This always gives me such a good feeling. Coats are also one of my favourite pieces of clothing, borderline obsession. A good coat can literally make an outfit. Whether it’s an absolute bargain you are looking for, or an investment or treat yo’self purchase you want to make, I am going to cover both ends of the spectrum with the following coat trends.
Fur (faux, obvs)
Vintage-inspired fur looks so chic and hot off the runway.
A classic heritage design. Not just restricted to blazers, trousers and skirts, a checked print on a coat is also so on trend. Just don’t pair with all of your other checked pieces…
So cute. They just look so warm and cosy. And Cute. Nothing else to say really!
Similar to a puffer but with more of a focus on the quilted shapes. The brighter, the better.
Forever a classic that will never be out of fashion. You really can’t go wrong with one of these jackets/coats. Also a good all rounder for the most of the year. Read more on why a trench is a classic wardrobe essential.
I have completely fallen for this coat trend yet, however maybe this shiny, PU look all over a coat will grow on me? I have already been eying up boots and skirts in this vinyl look.
I love the androgynistic and on-trend vibes that an oversized, ‘cocoon’ silhouette give off. Definitely worn by a confident woman.
My favourite style. It’s like a hybrid of some of the above trends with the faux fur linings. My favourite coat that I have right now is the Fur Lined Aviator Jacket from Missguided. I knew it was going to serve me well as it bought it last year and they have it back in stock this year too!
