The Coat Trends We Predict Everyone Will Be Wearing This Autumn

·2-min read

Out of all the fashion staples in our wardrobe, the coat is probably the item that worked the hardest last year, and something tells us the same will be said for 2021. As we enter September, while we are no longer in full lockdown, the humble coat will inevitably become an essential part of our style arsenal, whether we're relishing our new-found freedom with dinners out, chilling at home or trekking into the office for the first time. Luckily, the new season 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 chilly November morning, but this year they come with more streamlined quilting which is perfect for layering. There's also plenty of colour via the saturated shades that hit the runway at Prada and Bottega: From cobalt blue to Kermit green, there's a veritable rainbow to choose from. Throwback trends also make an appearance in the form of leather styles and patchwork, both of 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 2022, scroll down to see and shop my edit.
