Shearling jackets have more than a nod to the 1970s. Depending on how old you are, perhaps you wore one then. For this year, some designers decided on a retro look while others created a more modern, sophisticated version of the shearling jacket, such as that shown on the catwalks at Saint Laurent.

Leather

You’ve already seen some long leather jackets. But you could also opt for a classic, shorter moto style. You could try a moto that combines two trends like the shearling and leather option shown at Sacai or a soft brown or tan shade as displayed at Brandon Maxwell. Reptile textures are also particularly on trend, both for jackets and for shoes. You can see this pattern on the black jacket at Saint Laurent.

Animal print

Animal print is one of those perennial prints that is in style year after year. You could go for full-on animal print if you like the glamour of this look. Or you could choose a coat with a little print, like the style shown on the runways at Giambattista Valli.

Plaid

Coats on the catwalks featured all sorts of embellishment from feathers to applique, cut outs to sequins. Opting for an embellished coat can make even the simplest of outfits look incredibly glamorous as well as being the perfect match for your evening wear.

Elie Saab – Jil Sander – Christian Dior

Quilted and puffer styles can sometimes be hard to wear, as they can add unwanted bulk. However, they also add warmth for the cooler months.

To overcome this and still create a flattering silhouette, opt for quilting that is relatively sleek. Also choose styles that skim your figure or that belt at the waist.

Fur collar
