It’s almost Christmas. The air is getting colder and the days darker. A coats is the one item you’ll wear the most this season, so it’s worth investing in. Here is a roundup of the biggest coat trends this winter.

Puffer Coat

The puffer has returned from last year. Whether you love them or hate them, there’s no denying they’ll keep you warm! They’re available in nearly every colour, length and pattern. If puffers are too sporty for you, corduroy versions are also available.

Shearling

A favourite for this winter is the shearling coat. Whether you decide to go for black or a more neutral tone, you’re guaranteed to be nice and cosy.

Faux fur 

Faux fur coats are always perfect for winter but this season they’re getting a revamp with different textures and patterns. There are all sorts of patterns  to choose from such as psychedelic, animal print and stripes.

Trench coat

Not just your classic beige trench coat, this year checked trench coats are taking over. Anything looking remotely vintage is in! High gloss trench coats are also making an appearance. Go for something shiny and super sleek to achieve that punk, futuristic look.

Red

A simple primary colour red is in and is a pretty bold statement as a coat. If the colour is daunting to you, it may be easier to pull off as a puffer coat or trench coat.

Animal print

Animal prints are perfect for faux fur coats. Leopard print is a popular choice this winter, particularly in the style of a long trench coat.

Coloured leather

The black leather jacket is a timeless piece, but this year is calling for some colour, from primary colours to muted neutrals.
