One of the best ways to update all of your outfits is to upgrade your outerwear. In this article, you will find a round up of coat trends 2022 – all of the biggest coat and jacket trends you can try this season. You’ll find everything from moto jackets and blazers to long, statement coats.
coat trends 2022 – Shearling
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.
There was lots of leather on display on the catwalks for Fall 2022, from pants and dresses to coats. If you really want to be on trend, choose a bright shade for your leather like red, orange or pink in either a trench or straight style.
Also take a look at the best leather jackets to wear with everything.
The trench coat is an absolute classic that will never date. For a modern-take on your trench coat, take a look at maxi lengths or bright colors. Two-tone trenches are also very much on trend, as well as trenches with unusual detailing like the two-in-one trench shown at Sacai.
coat trends 2022 – Moto jackets
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.
Giambattista Valli – Giambattista Valli – Sacai
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 and checks always work well for Fall. Ralph Lauren chose big, bold, modern checks which look fabulous, while Burberry took a more traditional approach, and Chanel’s stylish fell somewhere inbetween.
Prabal Gurung – Giambattista Valli – Gabriela Hearst
While florals may be associated with the blooms of spring, many designers decided to bring nature to the runways by including flowers on their winter coats. Choose big blooms like those at Prabal Gurung, or smaller flowers as showcased on the monochrome coat at Gabriela Hearst. Or, you could look to Asia for your inspiration like Giambattista Valli.
Emporio Armani – Giambattista Valli – Emilia Wickstead
The floor-sweeping maxi length was featured on a host of designer runways. What better way to add drama to your every day looks. Even if you’re just wearing a sweater and jeans, a long coat will add instant style. Choose plains, prints, double breasted, single breasted or open styles. Everything is on trend, so long as it’s long.
Faux fur styles are on trend each winter and fall. Not only are they glamorous, but they add some cozy warmth. Choose paler shades or prints and keep the rest of your look relatively simple.
Tod’s – Carolina Herrera – Gabriela Hearst
Capes are a fantastic style to layer over your knitwear. Layer over your sweaters, jeans and knee-length boots for casual days. Or, wear over your dress to add some glamour to your evening looks.
If you usually opt for a winter or fall coat in a neutral shade like black, navy, gray or beige, how about a colorful option this year? There were so many beautiful shades on the catwalks that would definitely stand out on the grayest of days. Wool styles in reds, oranges and pinks are particularly on trend in long lengths.
coat trends 2022 – Blazers
Also take a look at how to fit a blazer.
You’ve already seen animal prints, checks and florals. But you could also give your coat a modern style by opting for a big, beautiful, graphic print. Choose a trench style or straight coat. Keeping the style of your coat classic lets the print do the talking.
Bibhu Mohapatra – Elie Saab – Gabriela Hearst
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.
Bluemarine – Proenza Schouler – Bluemarine
You’ve already seen coats featuring full faux fur. But if you just want to add a little faux fur to your look – and keep your neck warm at the same time – then choose a coat with a fur collar. You could opt for a full length style or add a fur collar to your moto jacket.
To add interest to your coat, think about the details on your sleeves. You can think about sleeves with volume, or add some embellishment to your sleeves.
