Believe it or not, New York Fashion Week is just days away, and while you wait anxiously for the sea of new trends and sparkly runways that lie ahead, attendees are frantically trying to figure out what the heck they're going to wear. Since the weather forecast is proving to be nothing but frigid, everyone heading to New York is banking on statement coats to keep them feeling warm and looking great, and that's a fact.
Follow any major influencer on Instagram, and you'll quickly figure out which brands are trending and which are not. In an effort to predict which outerwear brands will reign supreme come NYFW 2019, we went through and scoured the accounts of some of the industry's most beloved It girls to see which designer names they have been stanning. From Saks Potts to Stand Official, the seven brands ahead are going to be heavy hitters during New York Fashion Week.
Saks Potts coats are the cream of the crop when it comes to street style bait, eye candy, Instagram props, and so on and so forth. Thanks to their striking colorways and bold furry cuffs, these coats are no-brainers for fashion week attendees.
If you live in New York and like being warm, there's no doubt you've heard about the Aritzia Super Puff. Every kind of dresser from minimalistic to eclectic has added one of these lifesavers to their wardrobe, for they are the perfect combination of practical and cute.
If you're on the hunt for the perfect faux-fur coat, one that is simultaneously wearable yet striking, Stand Official is your answer. This Scandinavian brand quickly gained steam among international influencers over the past year and has made its way to being a coveted brand here in the U.S. as well. Mark our words: This brand will be flooding your feeds in no time.
It wouldn't be a wintry fashion week without a plethora of Shrimps moments. Between the quirky prints and loud silhouettes, when someone wears a Shrimps coat, it gets noticed.
The Arrivals is a tried-and-true treasure found within the closets of way too many New York ladies to count. Known for its leather, shearling-trim jackets and cozy teddy bear coats, the brand's go-to outerwear pieces are bound to make an appearance or two (or three) come fashion week.
La Llama is a British brand that's still very much on the rise, but here at Who What Wear, those are the ones we get most excited for. Danish superstar Stephanie Broek has been spotted wearing this reversible coat from the brand on many occasions, and if we've learned anything from this influencer, it's that the brands she wears stick.
This year, Moncler has really stepped up its game, churning out one trendy puffer after another and dressing new fashion icons like Ezra Miller in looks we'll talk about for years to come. Since puffers are going to be a non-negotiable this fashion week, we have a feeling fashion girls will be reaching for the chicest Moncler version they can find and wearing it nonstop.
