Hottest Coats for Winter: Trends & Types

Curious about the new winter coat trends for 2013? Thinking of investing in a new coverup this season? Prepare for the approaching winter weather by updating your wardrobe with a stylishly striking coat. Hope to see more coats like this on the streets!

Oversized coat

Big is beautiful! With many luxurious variations of the unfitted silhouette that emerged from the catwalks, the oversized boxy retro coat from Jil Sander reigned supreme as a prototype. Made of high quality wool, it is a statement investment for modern-minimalist wardrobes. With exaggerated proportions, and wide-set shoulders an oversized coat is an ideal layering device. Opt for fitted clothes to create a cool contrast.

Military coat

Infuse trend-right military elements into your cold weather look with an army coat featuring epaulets at the shoulders, large buttons, high stand collar and a tailored fit. Oh, and a colour: either green or black, sometimes navy or gray. The military coat is a great investment since it is weather proof for essential form and function from fall to spring. Luxe versions feature a fur trim or a shearling collar, guaranteed to make a seriously stylish statement.

Leather coat

Leather goes ultra-luxe as the ultimate investment piece for this and many seasons to come. The all-leather buttoned-down classic trench packed with understated edgy touch (as seen in Valentino) works for every occasion during the transitional season. Goth-inspired chicks will pick it with no hesitation to fashionably flirt with dark romance. Supple leather will upgrade any ensemble also when used as a detail. For a modern uplift be on the lookout for wool and other warm fabrics combined with leather (or leatherette) sleeves and a collar.

Printed coat

Technically speaking, you can’t go wrong with a boldly printed coat. In a pursuit for a contemporary city feel, fashionistas around the world choose a printed or a patterned number for a classy and smart look. Depending on your personal preferences, choose from a timeless plaid, a cute houndstooth, or a stylish leopard print – they all seem to be a popular women’s outerwear and will all top off your sophisticated winter looks in style.

Fur coat

Elegant, glamorous and totally wearable, (faux) fur is enjoying another season on the top trends list. The popularity of fur is a result of practicality as it keeps you snuggly warm in below zero temperatures and glamour as it will satisfy your need to create a flattering winter look (see Viktor & Rolf oversized fur coat with black wool inserts). For a seasonal update choose a basic collarless coat to fancify with a faux-fur collar or other fur accessories. Otherwise, add a touch of luxe with modern fur-trim coat, perfect for everyday wear.

Cape is an effortless piece that can be worn casually or dressed up for a night out. This type of outerwear is also the easiest to wear. On one hand it has this magic just-toss-it-on-and-go attitude, on the other hand, it is high fashion drama in one fell swoop. No matter your style preferences, take your style cues from amazingly stylish Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl (played by happily married actress Blake Lively) who wears capes impeccably.
