Winter Coat Trends

winter coat trends

Winter coats- you can’t live with ’em, you can’t live without ’em. Wait a minute- that phrase doesn’t really work well, does it? Either way, the cold winter weather calls for heavy coats that will get the job done. For me personally, finding winter coats that keep me warm, look stylish, are in my price range and don’t make me look like a marshmallow can be hard.

Pale pink coats

The girliest of girly-girls will love that pale pink is a hot color for winter outerwear. A pale pink, also sometimes referred to as blush, is almost a neutral, so it will mix and match with a variety of other colors in your wardrobe. I particularly like the look of pale pink and gray. Whoever said you can’t wear pastels in winter was clearly wrong.

Bell-shaped coats

I’m a big fan of the bell-shaped coats for fall and winter, mainly because they accentuate my thin waist and add curves to my bottom half. Win-win! I love how girly they are, too. You may also see this type of coat referred to as “fit and flare” coats. How Kim Kardashian of them.

Military coats

Whether they are the distinct army green or just have military details like buttons or patches, these coats are on-trend. I personally love the vintage feel of the ones above. If you think the military style is too rugged for you, add some feminine accessories like a fun scarf or pink lipstick.

Faux fur coats

The key here is “faux”, since I don’t really want to be walking around with a real rabbit on my chest (but that’s just me). Faux fur coats just look and feel luxurious to me, even if they are under $100 (props to you if you can find one that cheap!)


  1. I kind of love all of these coats. I love the pink ones and the fur. I have a coat obsession since I hate being cold! I have so many.

  2. I typically go more military or classic in my winter coats but I LOVE the pale pink options. Especially the middle one. I’m not a huge pink person so I’m actually surprised by how much I like it.

  3. I’ve turned into such a coat fiend- I’ve bought several this year; there are just too many styles I’m loving right now. You did a perfect job of curating the trends! 🙂

  4. I love the idea of the pale pink coat but….I am pretty rough on my coats it seems! Sad face. Basic black for me.

  5. Baghgh That pink J. Crew coat is so pretty!!! I have been obsessed with all things pink lately. And love any military inspired coat. THey are so cool! xoo

  6. It’s like I can’t have ENOUGH faux fur in my closet. ASOS is dangerous (and their Cyber Mon sale goes through 12/4). I’ve been feeling blush tones for winter this season, too… Great picks, girl!

  7. LOVE that we were on the same wavelength today!!! Blogger ESP! 🙂 And gimme one of each of the fur coats!!! In love!!

  8. I’m in desperate need of a winter coat! Love these options Rachel! Something about the soft pink this season speaks to me:)!

  9. I love these winter coats. I just found a gorgeous bell shaped coat from Burlington Coat FActory. I got a great deal on it and it is so flattering!
