Get ready for candy-colored faux fur and unexpected patterns.
While you’re busy basking in the perfect weather of PSL season (well, in my opinion at least), I’m here to unfortunately let you know that the chilly days of winter will be here before you know it. But fear not: To help aid in making the coldest months as comfortable — and chic — as possible, I’ve tapped into my stylist prowess to bring you the women’s outerwear trends you’re set to see this coming winter.
The key to curating an incredible outerwear collection is variety — and these emerging trends have plenty of that: A quilted puffer is ideal for daily errands and functionality, while a gorgeous bright blue trench is the perfect choice for a special dinner you’ve had marked on the calendar for weeks. But, hey, if you fancy wearing your faux fur to the bodega, you have my full support. After all, if you’re anything like me and for the most part dread the cold, dark days of winter, at least this extra layer we add to our ensembles provides a whole new opportunity to dress up.

Outerwear Trend #1: A Pop Of Color
In a sea of NYC’s all-black uniform, a pop of color always serves as a head turning moment. The perfect addition to a night out or simply whenever you want to brighten up a dreary day, these options will have you covered (quite literally). Grab your favorite hue and head out the door.
Outerwear Trend #2: Animal Print
Animal print has been crawling all over shoes this fall, and it’s set to take over outerwear as well in the coming months. From classic leopard to outrageous zebra, these coats will appeal to your inner wild side.
Outerwear Trend #3: Candy-Colored Faux Fur
Somewhat of a spin-off of the brightly hued outerwear trend, this one focuses on both color and fabric. The look is all about faux fur that looks, well, faux with candy-colored pieces that are undeniably fun and unique.
Outerwear Trend #4: Quilted & Cozy
Dressing for the winter months is about more than staying stylish — it’s about staying warm! Available in long and short styles and in every color imaginable, both your temperature needs and style aesthetic will be met no matter your personal preference with these cozy, quilted pieces.
Outerwear Trend #5: Printed Patterns
For those who love to throw a dash of the unexpected into their style, these trending printed pieces are everything. From plaid to abstract to florals, these outwear pieces put a fun twist on day-to-day style. Plus, with the freedom to dress them up or down, you’ll be surprised with just how much wear you’ll get out of them throughout the season.
