Coat season is officially in full swing, with temperatures only continuing to drop. 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 7 winter coat styles that we—along with many others—can’t help but notice.
The top 7 winter coat trends of 2022 range from tried and true classic camel coats to statement shearling coats that anyone would want to snuggle up in. Coming in at the top of the list, however, are coats from Totême, By Malene Birger, and even Mango that come equipped with built-in scarves. A two-in-one winter staple—what more could you ask for? For those lucky enough to live in warmer climates, quilted shell coats are still a top trending item amongst retailers and, of course, street stylers. They could even be worn layered underneath an oversized wool coat for extra coziness and warmth.
To cheer up any winter blues, take a walk on the wild side in an animal-printed coat from Ulla Johnson, Rixo, and Dries Van Noten. Luxury leather trenches are a forever fashion favorite seen across the runways and the streets. Keep it minimal in a navy oversized trench from Cos or maximal in A.W.A.K.E Mode’s belted trench coat. When the weather is especially wintry, warm up in a shearling robe coat from H&M, Remain Birger Christensen, or Proenza Schouler White Label—it will be as if you never left your house. Speaking of shearling, standout shearling coats are never not on trend and these from Zara, Jonathan Simkhai, and Stand Studios are winners this season.
Whatever coat you land on this winter, there’s no doubt it will stand out. Below, the top 7 winter coat trends of 2022 to try (and shop!) now.
Built-in Scarf Coats
At the top of our shopping list are these ultra-chic coats that come equipped with built-in scarves. Classic camel versions from Co, Mango, and Totême will pair well on more casual days with a worn-in T-shirt and jeans, while options from Tove, By Malene Birger, and Rick Owens deserve to be worn on festive nights out. Even better, you’ll never have to worry about losing your winter scarf again!
Walk on the Wild Side
On days when the weather is especially wintry, what better way to cure those winter blues than with a statement animal-printed coat. From cheetah and leopard prints from Rixo and Nili Lotan to zig-zagging zebras from Stella McCartney and Dries Van Noten, these coats are designed to stand out. Keep it simple underneath with a black leather midi skirt and a Mary Jane heel.
Statement Shearling Coats
Shearling coats not only deliver in warmth, but of course, in style. This winter season, the shearling set has never looked better thanks to Jonathan Simkhai, Remain Birger Christensen, Stand Studio, and more. Go one step further and wear your new shearling coat with an equally as stylish shearling sandal.
Quilted Shell Coats
Quilted shell coats and jackets have gained major popularity as of late courtesy of brands like Anine Bing, Ganni, and Totême. For those lucky enough to live in warmer climates, wear a quilted liner all on its own over a crisp button-up or lightweight sweater. And for those dressing for the wintry weather in mind, see your new quilted shell as a layering piece and style it underneath one of your roomier, oversized coats.
Shearling Robe Coats
As if you never left the comfort of your own home, these shearling robe coats promise to keep you snug all season long. Of course, they deliver in style, too, like this winter white version from Acne Studios or H&M’s teddy coat. On nights out, style your new shearling robe coat over a matching party two-piece set.
Luxury Leather Trench Coats
A luxurious leather trench coat is the ultimate wardrobe staple that works well across any season, but especially during winter. You can never go wrong with classic black, like these from Staud and Nili Lotan. Autumnal brown leather trenches from A.W.A.K.E Mode and Apparis feel especially festive for late fall and winter, while a navy trench from Cos or a sage green Jonathan Simkhai trench will pop some welcome color.
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 Khaite, while offerings from the High Street are just as noteworthy. Continue with the classics and style any of these chic camel coats with a pair of relaxed denim and stylish sneakers.
