It’s that time of the year again. The mornings are becoming cooler, and the days seem to be getting shorter. It clearly signals one thing: winter is fast approaching, the season marked by freezing mornings and plunging temperatures. But rather than fight the weather, let’s lean into it.
Get yourself prepared by grabbing the most important item of the season: a winter coat. There’s no better time than now to get your wardrobe winter-ready. Plus, the season has not yet swung in fully, so you still have a good chance of getting that size and color you love. With so many ways to wrap up in style this season, we have unearthed the top 5 2018 winter coat trends you absolutely need to know about.
Trench coats have been on trend for a while and will probably never go out of style. This classic style originated over a hundred years ago and was originally worn by military men to give them functionality and comfort. If you don’t already own this timeless icon, you should go ahead and make that investment. Keep things chic and warm with a camel colored trench, or try other fascinating colors like yellow, orange, or red.
Faux Fur Coat
This chic and glamorous style has been a staple in winter fashion for many years and has, once again, proven itself to be a key trend in winter 2018. Whichever color or texture you choose, a big faux fur jacket will keep you all warm and cozy while adding a touch of elegance to your outfit. Talk about a win-win! As we approach the cooler months, now is the best time to invest in this cold-weather wardrobe essential.
They are not exactly like faux fur, not quite like fleece, and not as expensive as real shearling, yet teddy coats combine the indulgent softness of faux fur, effortless elegance of shearling, and the comfort and functionality of fleece. Teddy coats were a major trend last year, and this year is no exception. Counting the likes of Kim Kardashian, Hailey Baldwin, and Rita Ora, who are long-term fans, this is the coat trend that’s taking over Instagram, the runways, and of course, the streets. Wrap yourself in a chunky borg teddy coat, or keep things relaxed and casual with a color that’s not exactly subtle.
Animal Print Coat
Glamorous animal print coats are a huge trend in the fashion world right now. The classic and stylish leopard print is undoubtedly the most common animal-inspired fabric, as seen across runways and on the street. Apart from leopard prints, snake, tiger, cheetah and zebra prints are also on trend which means that whatever your look, there’s bound to be one that you love.
The peacoat is a must-have in your wardrobe. Just like the trench coat, this never-goes-out-of-style outwear also has its history in the military and is as practical as it is stylish. It works with almost every outfit and has the innate power to transform and smarten up any look. You’ll also find it available in almost every color imaginable.
