With dropping temperatures and chances of snowfall, everyone in New York is rushing to get ready for the winter. Warmth is the priority, but looking chic while staying cozy is most definitely appreciated. This season, there’s a variety of trends in outerwear: from the super cool puffer coat to a selection of refined wool coats, there’s something for everyone. Below, we have a roundup of five of the season’s best coat styles to own.
For starters, you can never go wrong with a classic wool coat. Look towards neutrals: camel, grey, black or navy will make your winter coat a staple that’ll pair perfectly with everything in your closet. A wool coat with a softly belted waist creates an effortless silhouette and eases layering. Or, try a more utilitarian style with a tightly belted waist. Either way, this investment will work season after season.
The next coat to have in your closet is the teddy. Trendier than ever this year, the teddy coat offers a plush, textured way to stay warm during the winter and its oversized fit means you can layer sweaters or tons of Heattech under it. If you can’t afford a luxurious designer teddy coat, try Aritzia or Mango for some affordable, yet still great quality options.
The puffer coat is the perfect statement piece, and it’s designed to keep you nice and toasty during the coldest months. Up and coming Budapest-based label Nanushka designed an ultra-cool vegan leather puffer with a button-up high collar to keep everything up to your chin warm. Or try TNA’s Kendall Jenner-approved Super Puff that comes in a variety of colors, from metallics and bold colors to classic black or navy.
Up next is the shearling coat. An effortlessly cool way to update your style for the winter, try a shearling in a longer silhouette to protect yourself against windy weather, or a shorter biker style version for a classic and cool look.
Heritage prints are not just this season’s trend. It’s a great addition to your wardrobe because the plaids work great with solid neutrals or are fun to pair with bright colors. Mix with another print to make a statement, or look for interesting textures and details to update this classic piece.
