The One Coat Trend Everyone's Buying This September

If you’ve long had a penchant for leopard-printed coats, whether they’re on the backs of modern muses like Kate Moss and Alexa Chung or draped over the shoulders of throwback style icons (hello Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl), autumn 2018 may be your favourite fashion season to date. Not only is leopard print back in a major way, but there’s a whole new feel to it courtesy of Victoria Beckham and the likes of Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Sacai and Calvin Klein.

Sure, leopard-printed jackets have made an annual appearance this time of year for the past few decades, but this autumn is set to be less retro faux fur (although it’s doubtful we’ll ever see this drop off completely) with more of a focus on sleeker, grown-up finishes. VB made the case for heavier form-fitting fabrics with her standout chenille trench coat on the New York Fashion Week runway, while Tom Ford offered up a puffer-inspired spin and even Julia Restoin-Roitfeld sat front row in London wearing a flattened faux coat from House of Fluff.

Grab yours fast—we predict a sellout!
