9 Winter Coat Styles We Want to Cozy Up In
If you’re looking to bundle up in style this winter, your outwear needs to be in tip-top shape. Coats are the first thing people see, so make a statement! Click through these 9 winter coat styles to inspire your next big purchase.
Fur—preferably faux—is a must-have winter coat style and the perfect fabric to shield you from the chill. Whether you favor a long or a cropped style, a fur coat is more wearable than you think. For a glamorous look, layer a fur coat over a dress with tousled curls as Kat of With Love From Kat did. But if you're looking to add a bit of edge to your style, rock a messy topknot, T-shirt, and ripped jeans to tone down your fur a bit.
Bundle up in a cozy wrap coat like Helena’s of Brooklyn Blonde. This winter coat style is great for all occasions because it is effortless. Plus, the belted style cinches you in at the waist to slim down your silhouette.
Caitlin of the blog Style Within Reach is wearing one of the “It” outwear styles for winter 2014, a cape coat. This outfit topper is normally a more formal piece, but Caitlin proves that theory to be false. A cape can be worn with simpler pieces likes jeans or a plain top. The trick is to buy a basic solid color, and glam it up with a fur stole.
Everyone needs a car coat. Car coats are thee most versatile style of outwear you can own because of their sleek and structured demeanor. If camel or black doesn’t interest you, add a poppy punch to your coat closet with a brightly colored coat, such as the one worn by Rachel of Pink Peonies.
Invest in a parka for winter’s more casual days. This laid-back coat style works perfectly to toss on and run around in. When styling your parka, follow in the style footsteps of Grasie of Style Me Grasie. She kept her look simple with a pair of skinny jeans, booties, a beanie, and a chunky knit scarf for texture and pattern.
Plaid is an important outwear trend for winter 2015. While this look started late last season, it’s caught on like wildfire. Krystal of This Time Tomorrow jumped on the trend with a long, plaid coat. When styling your plaid coat, do as she did: Keep your layers very simple because the coat stands on its own.
Oversized or cocoon coats are another trend that has trickled down from last season. This comfy and cozy style is easily tossed over any of your winter outfits to keep you warm and stylish. Julia of the blog Gal Meets Glam dressed up her coat with a dress and over-the-knee boots. For less formal days, jeans or trousers work great, too.
We have major style envy of Emily from The Glam Files. She is rocking one of our favorite outwear trends of the season—the blanket poncho. Simply wrap an oversized scarf or small blanket around your neck, spread it out to cover your shoulders, cross it at your waist and belt. Voila! You can create different ponchos all season long.
Beat the bitter cold in a down or puffy coat like Mary’s of Happily Grey. A puffy coat can add a sporty or laid-back vibe to your look. Because it will keep you plenty warm, this coat style is also great when you want to toss on your snow boots and play outside.
