Coat season is upon us—and a slew of fall and winter coat trends ia arriving. Don’t you feel the crispness in the air come morning? Like any other wardrobe essential, you probably have a chic coat or two hanging in your closet, but why not give into the trends this season and shop these eleven winter coat styles that we—along with many others—can’t help but notice? 

The top winter coat trends of 2023 range from tried-and-true traditional camel coats to statement shearling coats that add a runway-inspired contemporary twist. Debuted last year and still reigning supreme, are coats from Totême, The Row, and even Mango, which come debuting floor-sweeping lengths. A winter staple that only requires tights and Mary Janes—what more could you ask for? Quilted shell coats from The Frankie Shop, Chloe, and Everlane are still a top trending item amongst retailers and, of course, street stylers. They also serve as the ideal foundation to layer your other winter wardrobe classics underneath, like a simple white turtleneck or a cozy cashmere v-neck sweater.

To brighten up emerging winter dismay, take a walk on the wild side in an animal-printed coat from Stella McCartney, Simkhai, or Norma Kamali—which comes in belted, leather, and cropped puffer silhouettes. Just as cheery, colorful, yet chic coats from Christopher John Rogers and LouLou Studio are new on the scene and will easily make a statement among the dreariness of a cloudy sky. Luxury leather trenches are a forever fashion favorite seen across the runways and the streets. Keep it minimal in a navy oversized trench from Mango, or go full maximal in Alaïa’s croc-effect belted trench coat. When the weather is especially wintry, warm up in a shearling robe coat from Apparis, Loro Piana, or Herno—it will be as if you never left your house. Speaking of shearling, standout shearling coats are never not on trend and these from Khaite, Malene Birger, and Stand Studio are champions this season. Transport yourself to the British countryside courtesy of a few houndstooth, plaid, and checked coats from the likes of Isabel Marant, H&M, Vince, and more.

Whatever coat you land on this winter, there’s no doubt it will stand out. Below, are the eleven winter coat trends of 2023 to try (and shop!) before the season actually begins.

Sweep the Floor 

What’s more uncomplicated to chuck on for the winter season than a knitted maxi dress? Well, a floor-sweeping coat, of course. This season, we saw ultra-long coats (looking at you, Saint Laurent, and The Row!) and jackets that could double as a cold-weather dress. Its full-body coverage and tailored fit concoct a cohesive appearance that requires little fuss while running errands, or attending dinner soirees.


It’s rare to look at the fall/winter shows and not spot a double-breasted blazer or three, because they never truly get removed from our rotations. For the new season, it’s all about picking iterations that have been crafted with discretion—coats that have blazer details, like Bite Studios. Or, The Row’s Kitan coat, whose longline style comes bearing a waist-hugging silhouette to offset the length. Proenza Schouler’s polished iteration is punctuated by sharp angles—both in the shoulder pads and a razor-sharp A-line profile.

Toggled & True 

Whether you’re a fashion fanatic or someone who just relishes wardrobe functionality, you’ve probably noticed a familiar silhouette gracing the latest collections, and the streets—the menswear-inspired toggle-embellished duffle coat. This definitive outerwear piece has once again found the limelight, bringing with it an assortment of vintage charisma, with modern tones. Just take a look at Prada’s timeless rendition or Totême’s newer shearling option.

Walk on the Wild Side

On days when the weather is especially wintry, what better way to cure winter blues than with a statement animal-printed coat? From cheetah and leopard prints to glossy snakeskin trenches from Stella McCartney and Simkhai, these coats are designed to shift the entirety of your winter wardrobe and add a vintage-inspired twinge. Keep it simple underneath with a black leather midi skirt and a chunky loafer.

Statement Shearling Coats

Shearling coats not only deliver warmth, but of course, style—and these celebs seem to think so too. This winter season, the shearling set has never looked better, thanks to Khaite’s leather-trimmed option, LouLou Studio, and more. Go one step further and wear your new shearling coat with an equally stylish shearling sandal.

Quilted Shell Coats

Quilted shell coats and jackets have gained major popularity as of late courtesy of the brand’s making them sophisticated again and for their functionality on those haphazardous winter days. Ranging in warmth from lightweight quilted liners to more heavy-duty puffers that feel more like a water-proof blanket than a coat, a quilted shell coat is the ultimate layering essential. Style it over one of the season’s most festive sweaters or a crisp white button-up, for elevated elegance.

Shearling Robe Coats

As if you never left the solace of your own dwelling, these shearling robe coats promise to keep you snug all season long. Of course, they beget in style, too, like a buttercream version from Loro Piana or Yves Salomon’s lamb coat, crafted in a pairable powder blue.

Chic and Colorful Coats

No stranger to the bold and beautiful, Christopher John Roger’s is both spirited and subdued, with an allover fractal effect. Last Fall ’22, Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino solidified fuchsia as the color of the season—and now, quiet luxury brands are taking note, like Max Mara’s pink virgin wool offering. Other reliable outerwear mentions include options from Loulou Studio and Akris.

Luxury Leather Trench Coats

A high-quality investment item, like this Mango leather-effect trench coat, doesn’t have to break the bank in order to be a staple in your wardrobe. And, if you’re looking to indulge a bit more this season, The Row’s Agathon coat (which trended after its debut), holds court as an understated luxury must-have. They’re best worn with, literally, anything, but we propose going the street-style route with a knitted two-piece set or floor-skimming creamy trousers.

Classic Camel Coats

A camel coat is a classic for a reason, whether double-breasted or beautifully belted. There are luxury options from Max Mara and Vince, while offerings from the High Street are just as noteworthy. We’re equally as obsessed with Toteme’s version—a shawl style made from felted wool blended with cashmere. Continue with the classics and style any of these camel coats with a pair of relaxed denim and stylish ballet flats, with a little sock.

Checks and Plaids

Plaids, checks, and houndstooth prints bring joviality to the season well before the holidays arrive, whether worn head to toe, paired with opposing patterns, or as a way to add some texture to a look. From Isabel Marant’s timeless tweed to Tanya Taylor’s checkering, these coats are as work-appropriate as they are weekend essentials.
