Although I'd like to believe that spring is just around the corner, it seems we still have a few more months of coat-wearing weather ahead of us. Whether you're a fan of puffers, trenches or oversize teddy coats, there's no way to deny that the wardrobe staple is an absolute necessity at this time of year.
Seeing as we've been wearing coats daily since around late November, we wouldn't blame you for feeling tired of the item or even a little impatient each time you have to layer one over your existing outfit in the morning. Thankfully, the street style at Copenhagen Fashion Week managed to prove that coats don't have to be an afterthought, as editors and influencers attended the shows in Denmark wearing a whole host of interesting outerwear.
As to be expected, we saw several standout trends emerge, as the style set was dressed in various iterations of checked coats, brightly coloured trenches, quilted coats and sunshine yellow shades. With style inspiration straight from one of fashion's coolest cities, we can only imagine these coat trends will be just as popular at the runway shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks too. Keep scrolling for the coat trends that are already dominating street style pictures this year.
1. Quilted Coats
Fashionable and practical, warm quilted coats were seen all over the streets of Copenhagen. Often spotted in either khaki green or a faded yellow, it's safe to say the trend is a frontrunner for fashion week.
2. Yellow Coats
Sunshine yellow is having a moment. It's predicted to be one of spring's most popular shades, and showgoers at Copenhagen Fashion Week proved you don't need to wait for warmer weather to wear this bright hue.
3. Checked Coats
While a checked coat might be considered a timeless wardrobe staple, the attendees at Copenhagen fashion week proved the item can also look contemporary. Opting for a checked coat in a bright colour or contrasting hue will be sure to make your look that much more modern.
The humble trench coat was given an update this year when designers began swapping its traditionally beige colour palette for a range of rainbow brights. Evidently, the fashion set has embraced the update, as colourful trench coats were seen all over Copenhagen.
