If you were hoping coat weather would be over soon, think again… We're bracing ourselves for a few more weeks of snow and all-around miserable weather. This year's trending jackets and coats show that outerwear doesn't have to be boring, as these viral coats have playful fringing, fun prints and bright paint-box colours.
Ganni has created the most hyped jacket of the year, and it has already been one of the most-photographed items by street style photographers: a white leather cowboy-inspired jacket with fringing along the shoulders. However, there are also a number of high-street coats that are also selling out just as quickly, including a Topshop coat I see every day when I'm travelling around London and a boxy jacket from & Other Stories in grey and cream.
Keep scrolling to see and shop the seven cult coats and jackets.
1. Ganni Fringe Leather Jacket
Style Notes: Every year, there's one Ganni item that goes viral, and 26 days into 2019, we're willing to bet it's this white Western-inspired leather jacket. Every influencer and buyer we can think of has been wearing it—and it's still available.
2. Topshop Checked Coat
Style Notes: This Topshop coat has had a substantial endorsement from the Instagram crowd, but I see it the most on my daily commute in London. It's currently sold out, but we're considering starting a petition to get Topshop to bring it back. We'd like to see it in other colours too…
3. & Other Stories Checked Coat
Style Notes: Speaking of checks, this coat only recently arrived on & Other Stories, but it's already been really popular and is quickly selling out in most sizes.
4. Tibi Faux Fur
Slip Into Style
Style Notes: If it's warmth you're after, then you can't go wrong with Tibi's faux-fur coat that's offered in a range of colours. The below emerald green might just be our favourite.
5. & Other Stories Box Blazer
Style Notes: This & Other Stories blazer quickly sold out when it was released in September, but the Scandi brand has just released another one in a lighter beige.
6. Saks Potts Puffer
Style Notes: The puffer coat is still going strong, and this shiny quilted shell jacket from Saks Potts which is available in orange and blue is proving very popular with the Instagram crowd.
7. Acne Shearling Jacket
Style Notes: Acne's shearling jacket is an oldie, but a goodie. This classic leather jacket is one of those pieces that will forever remain in style.
