Velvet Coats

With crushed velvet textures hitting the runways this season, the fabric has seen a 68% rise in popularity on Pinterest, with many looking for velvet trim coats and jackets to help them nail the trend.

Ideal if you’re looking for a smarter pull-on, velvet could also replace your fuzzy or faux fur coat from last year - just remember to have an umbrella handy!

Floral Coats

The perfect antidote to grey and gloomy weather, coats sporting floral prints have jumped by 43% in Pinterest popularity over the past few weeks, with increasing numbers of people looking for a flowery alternative to traditional winter coats.

If you’re not a lover of the colder months, a floral coat could help lift your spirits. Take care when opting for colourful prints however, as you’ll want to pick something that will coordinate with what’s in your wardrobe.

Bomber Jackets

The prospect of chilly weather isn’t dampening the bomber jacket trend at all. Though already hugely popular, searches and saves of bomber jacket styles have continued to climb by a respectable 32% over the past month, with more and more of us planning to rock the look through the autumn and winter.

The key to making the bomber jacket trend work through colder weather is to look for puffed and lined styles - some even have cosy fur trims, then layer your way to warmth. We love a chunky cardigan under a bomber, for warm winter style.
