With the freezing climates we have been experiencing as of late, and with winter poking its head just around the corner, our attention turns to wrapping up warm to beat the cold weather. A stand out coat is a must buy this season, with a variety of different trends hitting the catwalks, there’s no excuse to not wrap up in style. So, what are the main trends from the designers?
Shearling, wool from a shearling sheep, has been all over the runways making a bigger and better appearance than ever before, with the likes of Chloe and Burberry taking on the trend. The shearling wool has been used as lining on aviator jackets, forming floppy, textured collars and sleeve turn-ups for a casual look. The trend has also trickled down from the catwalks and been spotted on Alexa Chung, who paired her aviator Acne jacket with jeans and winter essentials: hat, scarf and gloves.
Military jackets have been around for a while and, good news, they’re not going anywhere! With a bit of a makeover this season, designers including Gucci, Etro and Roberto Cavalli have vamped up the look using embroidery, fur and loud prints. Wear casually, or over a party dress.
The puffer jacker; a blast from the past – but not for much longer. Padded coats and jackets are a big thing this season (in more ways than one). Hitting the catwalk at Balenciaga and Stella McCartney, the coats are carefully constructed, and well, very puffy. With so many stylish takes of the look already on the high streets it’s hard not to resist getting cosy in a puffer – so what are you waiting for?
