Look #2: The Oversized Teddy Coats
One of the highlights of this year’s women’s winter coats has been that the oversized jacket has made a whopping comeback. The largely oversized winter teddy coats are trending once again and our Instagram feeds just can’t stop gushing over it. These jackets fetch the cool and breezy, yet sophisticated charm that a true fashionista aims for, and when paired with the right sunglasses, you’ve taken a fashion look right out of the runway.

Look #3: The Faux Fur Coat
For the environment-conscious fashionista, a Faux Fur jacket never runs out of style. The leopard print and faux fur jackets have been ruling the runway since autumn/winter 2018, and it’s back again to remind us that it’s never running out of style. From sophistication to glamour, a classic faux fur long coat fits the bill for the trendiest long coats for women this season, and is perfect for just the mood you’re in. With many designers advocating the ban of fur, few brands like Gucci and Versace, have come up with better alternatives that make the wearer feel like they’re wearing real fur. From Van Noten to Givenchy, fur long coats for women strutted the runway this season, oozing every bit of style, sophistication and offering completion to power dressing.
Our pick is this timeless Saffron Boucle Long Coat for women, from Acne Studios' Fall 2018 runway show. Made in Italy from saffron couloured boucle (a particular type of yarn with a curled ply), the coat exudes a timeless elegance that makes one feel nostalgic. The sturdy faux fur paneling on this coat, coupled with its classic elegance, makes it a winter fashion favorite for us.

Look #4: The Puffer Jacket Coat
Puffer jackets fit the winter requisite of being both functional and stylish. Though they aren’t a new trend in fashion, designers have over the years come up with several fashion-forward versions of the traditional puffer jacket. This season, top designers from Balenciaga to & Other Stories, have reigned in the puffer jacket trend in the runways of long coats for women, and successfully broken the mould of it being a streetwear trend. Of the many looks in women’s winter wear this season, this is one look you can snag off the runway and hold your head high in quiet confidence.
This & Other Stories women’s winter wear puffer jacket has a slightly curved silhouette that takes care of the shapeless concerns behind the puffer jacket trend. It’s perfect when worn on a casual day as streetwear fashion, and also exudes high street sophistication when paired with the right accessories.
