Winter is one of my favorite seasons, mainly because of the fashion. Outerwear is ultra fun to style, but adding trendy new jackets and winter coats can be costly.
If your wallet is feeling the winter blues, don’t fret; I’m here to help! Below are ten of this season’s trendiest winter coat styles and affordable dupes for each.
1. Corded Jacket
Corded jacket-coats are a super trendy style for winter. They can be worn casually over a band tee with jeans or thrown over a dress with some booties.
This one from Zara in a neutral color is the ideal “shacket.” The way they styled it with joggers and a matching hoodie is another great way to wear it.
This version is another fab take on the corded trend. It features a classic collar and is more of a boyfriend style.
This jacket goes with just about everything because of its neutral color and relaxed fit. Pair with a graphic tee tucked into a miniskirt.
2. Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are classic and never go out of style. A leather jacket is also a solid way to make any look more edgy.
Why not try a blazer style leather jacket? This style is one of the trendiest winter coats this season.
This look is obsession-worthy. It’s structured, chic, and would contrast a girly outfit in all the right ways.
Of course the biker jacket is what comes to mind when you think of leather outerwear.
This faux leather jacket is the perfect addition to any outfit. It is a structured moto-style, featuring zipper detailing.
Try wearing it over a bodysuit and black jeans for a going out look. I also love the idea of pairing a beautiful jacket like this with a super casual sweats set.
3. Plaid Shacket
Shirt jackets, AKA “shackets,” are all the rage recently! This plaid version comes in lots of different colors and is amazing quality.
The oversized fit layers well over shirts, cropped tees, and dresses. Try jazzing it up with some bold jewelry or a minidress and tights.
4. Denim Jacket
A denim jacket is a staple that every girl needs in her closet. Oversized jean jackets go with just about everything and can be dressed up or down.
I love wearing jean jackets over my going out clothes for that perfect casual look. This boyfriend style from Boohoo is the perfect medium denim shade.
This dark grey jacket is a fashion-forward take on the classic denim jacket. Black and gray denim can be super versatile and a great staple for your college wardrobe.
This trendy winter jacket-coat even features a hood and is the perfect cropped length!
I have recently gotten more into blazers, and let me just say, I’m obsessed! They go with so much more than just your typical work clothes.
This one features classic plaid print and an oversized silhouette. If I had it, I would style it with a graphic tee, mom jeans, and some bangin’ sneakers.
A pastel blazer is one of this winter’s trendiest coat styles.
A pastel shade gives your look a bit of pop for the winter when most students are wearing all grey and black.
6. Trendy Puffer Winter Coat
Puffer coats are quickly becoming trendy winter staples! This cropped one is a glossy black style and no matter what you pair it with, you can’t go wrong.
This quilted puffer is the most perfect baby pink shade. This one is soft and cozy, making it ideal for travel or lounging.
The black zipper detail makes this version slightly edgy, and I just can’t get enough of it!
7. Moto Jacket
Moto jackets are one of my favorite going out jackets to wear in college. They’re lightweight, but still sleek and trendy.
This one from Forever 21 is a muted mocha color that will match everything.
Why not mix up your moto jacket game and opt for one in light grey? This one is faux suede and features the quintessential structured moto look.
It would look great paired with black jeans and cropped sweater. Add some black heeled booties and you have the perfect winter nighttime look!
8. Trendy Sherpa Winter Coat
Sherpa jackets and trendy teddy coats have quickly become my must-have staple for this winter! They are so comfortable and provide you with total warmth while still looking fabulous.
This one is a brown teddy style coat that zips in the front and has huge side pockets. I love the look of this jacket and how laid-back it makes you look.
This option from American Eagle is more fitted and gives you that traditional jacket feel.
It features a soft and fuzzy sherpa material that is guaranteed to keep you warm this season. The buttons, pockets, and collar are lovely details that will give you that more structured look.
9. Trench Coat
Trench coats are definitely the chicest jacket style out there and are very trendy again this winter.
A classic tan color is always a great go-to option for a trench coat. You can pair this jacket with anything at all, from casual to formal. This jacket can be styled pretty much any way you’d like!
I love this overcoat because it’s so different from your traditional long, tan trench coat. It’s a luxurious grey color and made from a brushed faux wool material.
This jacket gives me major New York City vibes! It features a tie waist and that perfect oversized fit.
10. Trendy Furry Winter Coat
Fur coats are ultra trendy this winter and great for all the girly girls who love getting dressed up.
This cropped, grey one is a nice length. Imagine accessorizing it with black purses and jewelry!
This shaggy, fur coat is also the perfect cropped length.
It features a neutral faux fur that will go flawlessly with all your sweatsuits. Pair with some chunky sneakers and you are set!
