The 9 Trendiest Winter Coats Inspired by Runway Looks


As winter approaches and the temperature drops, coat weather is finally upon us!  With a plethora of trends, colors and textures in style this season, the cold weather is definitely something to look forward to. "Unlike years past, this season's trends in outerwear include a range of shapes, colors and sizes, from oversized to fitted bomber styles and from pale pink all the way to ultimate black," says Martha Hilfinger, co-owner of Boston boutique dress.

With such an exciting range of outerwear options shown on this season’s runways, we found the nine trendiest coats for winter inspired by the most fabulous fall and winter designer looks.

1. Pink Fur Pea Coat

Pale pink outerwear was a popular trend on the runways for fall and winter 2013 and 2014. Specifically shown by Christian Dior, Miu Miu and Carven, this feminine hue came in many shapes and sizes, and was often accentuated with pieces in darker, bolder colors.

This cute and cozy fur pea coat would look great with bold black accessories to add some edge to the look.

2. Oversized Shoulder Coat

Jackets and coats with oversized shoulders appeared all over the fall and winter runways, specifically in the collections of Gucci, Proenza Schouler and Balenciaga.  The soft shapes created by oversize shoulders serve as a great contrast alongside more rigid silhouettes.

Wear this oversized pea coat with streamlined pieces, such as skinny jeans and sleek booties, for a chic winter ensemble.

3. Contrast Tweed Coat

You can add texture to your outerwear with a coat that incorporates tweed. The runway looks of Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Haider Ackermann specifically demonstrated how this traditionally masculine fabric can look feminine in different styles of outerwear.

This coat has an especially eye-catching application of tweed that makes a fashion-forward statement.

4. Leopard Fur Coat

Super soft fur coats are sure to make a statement this season! Fierce exotic furs were incorporated into many designer collections, including those of Roberto Cavalli, Fendi and Versace.

But you don’t have to go real, of course! This faux fur leopard coat is still trendy and chic.

5. City Chic Camouflage Coat

Camouflage outerwear was a surprisingly popular trend on the fall and winter runways. Michael Kors, Alexander Wang and Christopher Kane incorporated camouflage into particularly feminine looks.

The addition of fur to this coat reflects Kors’s and Wang’s simultaneous uses of camouflage and fur and makes this laid-back style more chic.

6. Navy Blue Drop Double-Breasted Pea Coat

Fall and winter designer collections showed navy blue to be the standout color of the season. Classic shapes in navy hues on the runways of Dries van Noten, Chloe and Celine were especially chic and stylish.

H&M, $99

Hilfinger suggests going with a pea coat, saying, “The pea coat is a perennially chic style; classic and versatile.” This particular piece’s double-breasted style is polished and sleek.

7. Checkered Shades of Grey Coat

Checks in several size and color varieties were all over the fall and winter runways.  With Stella McCartney, Celine and Saint Laurent displaying the versatility of this classic pattern, there are clearly many ways to play with plaid.

Urban Outfitters, $288

This particular coat is bold in its use of a big checkered pattern, yet it maintains versatility in its incorporation of only blacks and greys, making it easier to pair with several of your winter ensembles.

8. White Faux Fur Collar Biker Coat

Snow-colored coats and ensembles were all the rage on the fall and winter runways.  Valentino, Isabel Marant and Celine specifically showed the ways in which white can make a statement this season.

ASOS, $154.27

This particular coat has an interesting zip-up style and includes a detachable fur collar so you can change up your look without even changing coats!

9.  Graphic Printed Coat

You can show your personality with a playful graphic printed coat this winter. With graphic prints seen in several different ways on the fall and winter runways, particularly in the collections of Saint Laurent, Burberry Prorsum and Givenchy, it’s clear that fun, fresh graphics are fashionable this season.


Forever 21, $21.40

This southwestern print coat is unique and graphically interesting without being too over the top.  Wear it with a simple, streamlined ensemble for a balanced look.


With so many outerwear trend options this season, there’s no reason not to try one (or several) out! As long as you keep the rules of layering in mind, you’ll look super fashionable and cute for the cold weather!
