This season, statement coats are in. The bigger or brighter, the better. This was seen all over the runway during fashion week, which means that we no longer have to settle for plain black or tan trench coats. Go out and get the puffy coat with tons of fur lining the hood. Opt for the white coat instead of black. Wear the coat that looks 3 sizes too big for you—it’s in right now! Have fun with your outwear and mix and match styles.

Having a patterned coat is a cute way to make a statement without being too bold. Your coat will stand out in a crowd, but it won’t look too overdone or tacky. Plaid is a popular pattern this fall and winter, and it always looks so cozy. Or you could be a little more daring in leopard. In whatever pattern you choose, people will remember it, in a good way.
