As we take our pandemic uniform —
tie-dye, Nap Dresses
, and more — firmly into 2021, outerwear is getting a seasonal makeover, with a number of new
winter coat trends
taking over Instagram’s fashion feeds.
minimal dressing has been trending for the past year, coats and jackets are anything but classic in 2021, with printed, can’t-miss styles dominating this cold-weather dressing season. Textured quilted and leather-like fabrics are also getting more popular with shoppers looking to upgrade their outerwear without making too much of a style statement. And, as the pandemic’s hold continues, prompting many to spend more time outdoors in the winter, designers are responding with longer and more winter-proof silhouettes that are as fashion-forward as they are practical.
Ahead, five coat trends that will be everywhere this winter season.

Checkerboard Print Jacket
Blame it on
and our newly reinvigorated obsession with chess, but this mod fashion trend is back. While the Stand Studio Nino faux fur coat, the style that has been all over Instagram (pictured here), is currently mostly sold out — at the time of publishing, Queen’s Gambit Bergdorf Goodman has one size left— there are other outerwear iterations of the trend.
If a full-length, faux fur checkerboard coat is too much of a style commitment for you, the print also comes in more casual fleece and short jacket options.

The biggest outerwear
winter trend, the printed puffer, is also one of the most fun. With prints ranging from floral to tropical and animal, these jackets instantly add a statement — not to mention warmth — to any cold-weather look.
Farm Rio (pictured here) — an abashedly happy and print-heavy brand from Brazil — are especially beloved by Instagram’s most stylish. Styles from the much-anticipated The North Face x Gucci collaboration will likely pop up on street style’s finest in the next month, too.

The warmest coat on this list, shearling options now come in vegan and affordable styles. This season, the ever-popular shearling biker jacket silhouette has been traded in for a longer, knee-length hemline. Bonus if you can find one with oversized statement pockets, like the popular Stand Studio Aubrey faux patent shearling coat, of which
Nordstrom currently has a few sizes left.

Quilted jackets have also gotten longer and baggier this season (to fit all the bundling we’re doing underneath). Danish export Ganni’s Recycled Ripstop Quilted Coat (pictured here), in particular, made internet rounds thanks to its matching detachable collar (sold separately and currently sold out) — another one of fall and winter’s big trends — and dress-like silhouette.
For colder temperatures, choose a quilted coat with some down fill.

Leather Trench Coat
Thanks to celebrities like Katie Holmes and Zendaya, classic tan trench coats have gotten a winter upgrade. Instead of opting for a black
leather trench a la Matrix, try one in an unexpected color, like a yellow, burgundy, or blue, that could transition well into spring, or one featuring interesting detailing.
