The Coat Trends We Predict Everyone Will Be Wearing in 2021

Out of all the fashion staples in our wardrobe, the coat is probably the item that has worked the hardest this year, and something tells us the same will be said for 2021. As we enter a Christmas holiday period like no other, the humble coat will be an essential part of our style arsenal for all those socially distanced walks and outdoorsy get-togethers. Luckily, the New Year is set to usher in a host of outwear trends that combine both form and function.

The elevated puffer is, of course, sticking around and is surely one of the warmest things you can throw on on a freezing January morning, but next year they'll come in more elevated silhouettes: Think puffer-style trenches and quilted styles. There's also plenty of fluffy fabrics (a technical term), and by that, I mean fur collars and shearling finishes, often in unexpected pops of colour. Throwback trends also make an appearance in the form of quilting and long leather styles, which are sure to add personality to any outfit.

So if you're wanting to invest in a new coat that will feel fresh long into 2021, scroll down to see and shop my edit.
