5 of the best coat trends to snuggle up this fall
No need to ignore it any longer: fall is here. Instead of wallowing in late summer (or how little we had of it), it’s time to bask in coat season.
Outerwear is the first thing you see in an outfit, so a coat requires proper attention – especially since it tends to be a bit more of an investment, so you want your style to last.
If you’re looking for current inspiration, the fall / winter shows have brought out some coveted coat trends…
1. Caped Crusaders
While this isn’t the most practical style, you can’t deny the sheer drama of the capes. They were all over the fall / winter runways, in all styles, so you can tailor the look to your personality. If you want a more casual vibe, go for an eclectic knit style (as seen at Chloé), while Burberry has modeled a more classic and formal version of the cape.
If you really want to push the boat – and stay warm in the process – the shopping street currently adores comfy down jacket fabric capes.

2. Go green
Each season, one color reigns supreme. This year, it’s undeniable: green is everywhere.
We’re not talking about muted olives or understated moss tones – instead, green hues were big and bold, everywhere from Prada to Bottega Veneta. Wear your green however you like – in a tailored jacket or a large quilted coat – just make sure the hue is bright and cheerful.

Trench coats have a moment every year, normally with a quirky twist – deconstructed styles with patterns or bright colors. However, this season’s trench coats are all about simplicity.
This could be the pandemic that is changing our approach to fashion: there is a growing tendency to buy less and buy better – we are slowly realizing the catastrophic impact of fast fashion on the environment, and we are not actually doing it. need so many things.
So this season, pull your trusty trench coat out of your closet or invest in a classic style that will last for years. Stick to camels, dark browns, and blacks – the types of coats that will go with any outfit.
