That chill in the air can mean only one thing: Time to bust out your layers. Luckily, the best coats of the season have arrived in the form of metallic puffers, bold tweeds and plush faux fur. Discover the seven must-have outerwear trends to shop now.
Last season’s trend: Puffers. This season? Puffers that dazzle. Metallic hues and sparkling embellishments elevate the traditional ski jacket to new levels of street-chic. For a dose of extra glam, just add (faux) fur.
Amazing versatility plus easy shapes make capes a three-season winner for outerwear. Leather trim raises the game; sportswear details like zippers confirm these styles truly are designed for comfort.
Rainy days are so much better when outerwear options include rainbow hues, transparent materials, and slick finishes. Fashion and function at its best.
Nothing says understated luxury like an elongated cashmere, alpaca, or wool coat. Look for streamlined, soft silhouette with details like belts and side pockets—proving that elegance and comfort can peacefully coexist.
A sumptuous chubby instantly elevates any winter look adding a hint of glamour, and in playful colors and prints, a bit of edge, too. Style with anything from a T-shirt and jeans to evening wear.

Tweed may sound formal, but these wild styles prove it’s anything but. The the traditional suiting fabric is emboldened via bright hues and strong silhouettes. The brave-hearted can go all in with Prada’s head-to-toe look; for the slightly less adventurous, try Thom Browne’s approach of tweed on top, tailored on bottom.
