Top 4 Coat Trends for Fall & Winter 2016

Hooded Coat for the Family

Feel that? Fall’s in the air and the first chill is sweeping by. And you know what that means – winter’s on its way. Now is the perfect time to find the best coat or jacket for every member of your family.

The coat is arguably one of the most hardest working items in your wardrobe and deserves due consideration in the selection process. When buying a coat, style is often sacrificed for function…until now. We’ve got the four must-have fall/winter coat trends that’ll leave the family looking undeniably stylish – and warm – without draining your budget!


Consider it the wardrobe staple. But there’s nothing basic about these updated wool coats. Zip-ups. Button-downs. Belted. Embellished. There’s a look for everyone. Go classic in blacks or grays, or opt for a pop of color like this rich red. Keep it light early in the season then pile on vibrant accessories to brighten (and warm up!) the winter months.

Coat Trend Puffer


You may not be hitting the slopes but you can certainly look the part. The ski style is a definite do this season. And these 3-in-1 system jackets are an ingenious way for men, women and kids to all rock the trend. What makes ‘em so awesome? Well, there’s a zip-out insulated liner so you can sport a lighter layer in milder weather…or both when temps drop! Worried about looking like the “incredible bulk”? Don’t – these ski jackets are designed with style in mind, thanks to more sculpted silhouettes that subtly skim and complement the body.

Coats for the Whole Family

Coat Trend Vests


Around here, we’re loving the puffer. And it’s easy to see why. The puffer vest goes with practically anything. It adds instant oomph to tailored sweatpants, chinos, jeans, leggings…even a simple dress. Work it as a stylish topper to a pair of skinnies and boots – perfect for strolling around all those fall festivals. Then layer up to chase away the chill (we especially like the pairing of flannel with the puffer).

If we had to choose a runner-up, it would be the beloved bomber jacket for its all-star dress up, dress down ability.


No, this is not your grandma’s quilting. These quilted coats are totally now with decidedly feminine silhouettes and a wide range of fashion colors and sheens, including the hottest metallics. Cue the cozy by adding a contrasting or tonal infinity scarf.

    Burlington is one of two places I love shopping at. However, I am a petite woman having a problem finding womans shoes in a size 5 to 5 1/2.
