A trend that's super popular right now? Coats! They're no longer just for warmth, but now an addition to your everyday style. I started having a thing for coats about five years ago. I remember I bought a bright magenta peacoat and everywhere I went I got so compliments! After that my collection slowly grew, I had to get rid of my magenta peacoat eventually but I still have so many fun ones! So I'm very happy with this new trend (but man, have I resisted from getting even more- there are so many cute ones)!
I researched all the fashion magazines to make a list of the ultimate coat trends for fall/winter, 17/18.
A teddy coat is a fuzzy jacket that offers a lot of texture, often has a collar and buttons, and is as soft as the bear it's named after! These plush jackets usually come in shades of white, brown or even blush! I love this trend! It's just as classic as it is fun! Mine is pretty toned down and modern, but there are plenty that are oversized, girly or even edgy.
This exact one is from Loft. There are only a couple sizes left, but you can shop it here!

Last year, we saw the puffer jacket make a comeback and this season that trend is still alive. Now it's popular for the puffer jacket to have a quilted topper. We saw this quilted style make a comeback with Ralph Lauren jackets, giving off a preppy vibe. I think my quilted puffer is the warmest jacket I own, I tend to grab this during the winter months the most! This jacket is Laundry by Shelli Segal brand- has a removable hood and fur collar (I'm not wearing either) and is so warm! This exact one is old, but I linked a similar one by the same brand, plus others I love!

Not burgundy, not burnt orange- cherry red! This classic color was named color of the year during NYFW this past fall. Wear this bold color during the winter months and you'll be sure to turn heads. While this jacket is a favorite of mine, this is the oldest coat I own. Confession: two buttons have fallen off and I've been too lazy to even sew them back on, but I still love it! You can shop some other cherry red coats below!

Another popular color this season? Pink! We saw a lot of pink jackets from both Valentino and Gucci on the runway this season, in all shades of pink. I feel like you either love or hate pink, I love it! It's such a pretty, romantic color. I snagged this coat a couple of years ago at Target and I get so many compliments. The pleated skirt with the double-breasted top is just as much classic as it is girly. Shop some other pink hues below!

5. Long, Tailored & Oversized
This trend is most seen in celebrity street styles. Common on models like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner. Also commonly paired with athleisure looks, to dress up a more casual look. This long and simple coat, still makes a statement. This exact one is still available online and I would definitely recommend it. It's easy to dress up and down and is high quality material. Plus, it's a slim fit jacket so it doesn't overwhelm a petite frame. Shop it along with my other favorite long jackets below!

6. Statement CoatS
Im talking patterns, fur-lined sleeves, embroidery, embellishments, color blocking and more! It's time to have fun with your coats and really play-up your wardrobe. I hope these fun trends stick around next season! Even if I'm wearing the simplest outfit, a statement coat is the perfect topper. This oversized, confetti jacket is so fun! It's totally out of my comfort zone, but right when I saw it I fell in love! Plus, the price isn't bad either! P.S. It's currently on major sale! I'll link this one and some other fun options below!
