Year, after year wardrobes have succumbed to the cold and styles, have been sacrificed for warmth through subzero commutes. Traditional outerwear trends and winter gear like sleeping bag coats, snow pants, and fleece scarves have always seen us through brutal NYC winters, and this season is no different. We’re counting on the tried and true and a few up-to-date versions to carry us through the coming winter. This season it’s about coats that are functional, stylish practical and most importantly warm, and with the resurrection of certain trends updating your coat closet doesn’t mean emptying your wallet. We’ve put together some of the season’s most noteworthy coat trends that you’ll want to check out before purchasing your next piece of outerwear. So scroll through to see how you can step up your coat game for winter 2020.
Puffer coats have always equated to extreme warmth, and with that, they have never really gone out of style. This season’s puffer coats come in bright and metallic colors, fun prints and varying cuts like cropped or oversized. No matter your choice you won’t go wrong with a puffer coat.
Wool Maxi Coats
If your style is more classic than sporty a long wool coat might be for you. The maxi cut holds warmth in from neck to ankles and will keep you toasty through travels. Whether it be walking, long train commutes or drafty Uber rides.
Remember fleece jackets a-la North Face or Old Navy? Well, the style is making a come-back this season. Updated versions include patchwork prints, neutral tonal colors and pocket details. Softer Sherpa versions are a must this coming winter and make great layering pieces under lighter coats.
Cozy teddy bear coats made an appearance last winter and are still going strong this season. Warm colors like chestnut, caramel and black are the go-to colors your wardrobe needs.
You can’t survive winter without a good parka. Nothing beats a big fur-lined hood to keep ears warm and to block falling snow. This season’s parkas come in all over prints, sport reflective elements and have functional cargo pockets.
Faux furs have cemented their place in winter wardrobes everywhere. This season, step it up with colorful options or keep it classic in traditional tones.
Fluffy down coats will always be a winter staple but this season take a modern approach and layer a light down jacket under a wool coat for a look that is on-trend and warm.
