The Double-Faced Coat is… Hot

Also known as reversible or two-sided, the double-faced coat often features a solid color on one side and playful pattern on the other. Versatile for different looks and moods, and great for those on a more limited budget.

The Oversize Coat is… Still Hot

We’re seeing plenty of oversize everything these days, and the oversize coat is an undeniable main player for winter weather – especially when you need to layer up for switching between outdoor and indoor temperatures. Slip it on over that chunky sweater and you’ll still look neat and professional.

The Cape Coat is… Hottest

As holiday season draws closer, we’ve been seeing more and more capes in stores. Although they’re not a brand-new trend, they’re our favorite look right now. Fun and feminine, capes pair perfectly with denim and knee-high boots. If you already have your main coat for winter, this is a solid understudy.
