Now that a Wisconsin winter is well upon us, it’s important to remember that cold weather does not and should not correlate with lack of style. Coats are obviously a staple of the winter wardrobe and luckily, they do make fashionable and functional styles. This season, coat trends are a mix of classic colors, trendy details, and contemporary shapes.

A camel-colored coat has always been a standard, but this year it stepped out from the shadow of black and into the spotlight as the new go-to. However, if choosing just one hue seems a bit boring, add a little twist with a color-blocked style. Also this season, different textures are making statements. Faux fur adds a touch of affluence and elegance while leather detailing gives classics a new edge. For a more modern look, try a cocoon-shaped coat. It takes the traditional pea coat from standard to stylish.

Why blend in amongst the black parkas this season? Stand out and embrace these winter outerwear trends.
