Trendiest Coats for F/W 2018
With the weather getting colder and winter fast approaching, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to break down my favourite coats and jackets for the fall season. Since I live in Toronto, coats are a significant part of my wardrobe. I don’t mind spending a little extra cash on them because I am literally forced to wear one for at least 8 months of the year. In the fall and winter seasons, jackets are often the focal point of your look as they are the first thing people notice, so I think it’s important have a balance of classic pieces as well as some trendier options. Instead of sulking about the cold and snow, I can at least look forward to bundling up in a cute jacket!
Fall coats are all about staying warm and cozy while looking chic and put together. Check out what jackets I am wearing and what my favourite picks are for fall!
How can I make a list without naming a puffer jacket? Puffer jackets have exploded on the market and are taking over street wear. A puffy jacket is the perfect item to transition from fall to winter, as they are super warm and insulated. I wear my Super Puff every morning when I am going to the gym and when I am running errands around the city. It’s basically a giant sleeping bag that I can wear in public and who doesn’t want that.
Similar to the puffer, the teddy jacket has also been really popular this season. Super cozy and soft, this jacket is also great to wear on days you are running errands or just hanging out. It’s the type of jacket I would reach for when I am feeling lazy but still want to look cute and stylish. From skinny jeans and sneakers to booties, the teddy jacket is really versatile and can be worn with practically any outfit.
Nothing screams fall more than a plaid jacket. Period. With the weather getting colder, I’m switching from brown plaids into grey and even colourful plaids. They’re a nice piece to add on top of a simple outfit. Pair with a blanket scarf and a cute toque and you’re christmas ready.
A wool coat is a classic piece that everyone needs in their wardrobe. It is a timeless jacket that can be dressed up or down and worn for any occasion. If there is one jacket on this list that you want to splurge on, I would recommend spending a little extra cash on this one. You want to invest in something that is going to withstand the winters, cold and wear and tear. I bought two from Club Monaco last year, and have worn both colours countless times.
I think every wardrobe needs a good statement coat. Whether you want the statement to be the design or the material, a statement jacket really elevates your outfit. I have been really digging faux (obviously) animal print jackets, like snake skin or leopard print. While I wouldn’t necessarily wear a statement coat on a daily basis, if you have some extra funds, it’s a good piece to have when you want to spice things up.
So there you have it, my favourite coats for the fall season! I hope this list gave you some inspiration and insight to help you choose which types of jackets you want to purchase for the fall. Comment down below what jacket is an essential for F/W 2018!
