When starting my blog, my passion was really focused around beauty/makeup. I had a love affair with all skin, hair and beauty products that I just assumed this is where my expertise lied. However more recently, I’d say within the past year of so, I’ve started to develop a strong interest in fashion and trending styles. I’m not talking like the excessive NYFW runway shit, to be honest not sure I’ll ever understand that hype – but kind of the everyday trends that I scope out living day to day in the fashion capital, New York City.
Whether it be the new white bootie trend (any suggestions of where to get a good pair, let a girl know), or the return of the bootleg jean, I think it’s kind of fascinating to see how style is ever so changing, and a lot of the time returning to its original roots. Below I’ve listed out the top trending jackets this season, some super subtle while others will definitely grant you some stares on the street (but who doesn’t love that? No one? Maybe just me?) I also made sure to list REASONABLY priced ones because every blogger you follow who tags $600 coats just isn’t a real, working human mkay?! (but like, no offense if you have that money).
Trend #1: The Teddy Bear / Cocoon Coat
Definitely winter’s most snuggliest trend! Teddy jackets (also known to some as “cocoon jackets”) offer the right amount of fluffy texture and come in a surprising amount of styles / colors. I currently own the one below in red from Urban Outfitters, only in tan. I’ve only had it for about two weeks, but this puppy has earned me several compliments from strangers!
Trend #2: The Nice Lil Puffer Coat
A jacket trend that has stayed at the top of the popularity charts for a while, one can never really go wrong with a big-ass puffer jacket. This jacket actually came about in the 80s/90s, but has since taken on new forms and shapes and colors of ALL SORTS! My personal favorite kind of puffer jackets are ones that come in unexpected texture (think suede, velvet) or have some crazy design, because as we all know, I’m an obnoxious piece of shit! 🙂

Trend #3: The Basic Coat: The Parka
For those who tend to air on the side of basicness and caution (nothing wrong with that!), the Parka coat is your answer. Fortunately for you, people will be wearing parka coats forever, honestly. One trend I am NOT on is the Canadian Goose one – while I think they probably are very high quality, you’ll get sick of it within 2 years and waste about $1K worth of money. I’ve listed some inexpensive, cute(r) ones down below.

Trend #4: The Sherpa Moto Badass Jacket
Spotlight on the jacket trend that has turned me into a wannabe badass this winter season! I actually own the last jacket here (in black from TopShop) and regardless of what I’m wearing on my bottom half [jeans, leggings, pj pants, spandex] I look like a fucking bada$$! The faux fur also makes these jackets super comfy so you’re snug as a friggen bug.
What coats/jackets are you raving about this season?! Would love to hear in the comments below.
