5 Coat trends For Autumn

It’s finally overcoat season, and judging by the smile on my face, I’m definitely in the mood for autumn. I’ve rediscovered last year’s coats, jackets and long suit jackets, and even when the sun is brighter in late October, I stubbornly stack and wear my favorite pieces together.

Give me a top coat, a camel jacket, structured shoulders, a lace-up waist, gold buttons, bold epaulets – I love them all and would happily wear them even if I was just going to the supermarket.

If you’re looking for a new coat this fall/winter that you’ll love next year, I thought I’d share with you a few favorites from my own closet, a few from my most frequented retail stores, and a few more affordable online favorites.

Whatever style you’re looking for, classic or trend-setting, hopefully you’ll love my choices and maybe find a brand or two that you can’t put down.

Maxi with his personality

I have a few beautiful coats in my collection, but none gives me more confidence than this stunning hound print Maxi coat from Holland Cooper. Not only is this coat detailed, but the sheer length adds an extra wow factor that makes any simple look cool. Calf/ankle lengths are perfect for your wardrobe, but if you’re worried about being overwhelmed by fabric, then opt for a belt to tighten the look, and/or opt for structured shoulders/lapels to balance out the luxurious weight of the fabric.

Checked coat

A few seasons ago, during Paris Fashion Month, Isabel Marant was kind enough to dress me in their show, and what I couldn’t put down was an amber and orange “short coat.” It’s a beautiful hybrid of a shirt and jacket – chunky enough to be folded in the cool season, but cool enough to simply pair with a belt and boots. It was one of those styles that stayed with me until this season, when I never found it again. This style is the big news for AW20, and no matter what your budget is, you can find every shade you desire in this versatile coat trend.

Hound print coat

For me, it’s not so much a trend as a feeling of “I would wear this look forever if I had the chance.” I would wear cheetah-print knitwear, jackets, and accessories like a little black dress for winter, and I could wear almost any color in my closet. If you’re new to this trend and feel like a bold choice to wear a coat in any pattern (not black), go for a smaller hound print that pays homage to tradition. Similarly, you can use color-block accessories such as chunky belts, chunky combat boots, and oversize crossbody bags to keep the pattern in check.

Classic camel

I could probably leave this section with “You need a camel coat in your closet” and that would be enough to summarize this classic piece. Whether you have a walk-in closet or a capsule closet, a camel coat is one of those items you can wear for seasons or even years. As for the perfect style, it’s entirely up to you, as long as it brings the most fun and variety to your look – remember that trends are always just guidelines, not strict rules. What if someone said they were strict rules? Remember, rules are made to be broken!

Blended suit jacket

During the transition season (theoretically spring and fall), our wardrobes sometimes lack versatility, but the trend for layering and mixing pieces always fills the gap. Earlier this year, the runways were flooded with oversized suits, which meant that the coat/blazer mash-up was particularly prominent this season, from fashion houses to the high street. To really embrace the trend, consider a shoulder design that pays homage to the ’80s, a version big enough to match your favorite hoodie, and a line long enough to keep out the cold on cool days.

With so many coats and so little time, let me know if you enjoy this style of blogging, if they help you discover some new items or inspire your wardrobe.
