It’s almost November, and many folks around the U.S. are starting to feel a chill in the air. Here in NYC, the thermostat read 47 this morning, and it was frigid.

Because your days of getting away with just a hoodie or fleece are numbered, it’s time to start thinking about a new coat for the season. Do you need something dressy to wear to work, or do you want an extra warm and cozy puffer?

Before you make your final decision, be sure to check out the five coat trends below. These are some of the most popular styles you’ll see everyone wearing this fall and winter, so you should definitely add one to your wardrobe before the temps start to drop really low.

1. Faux Leather Puffers

Puffer coats are always a winter staple, but this year, they got a luxe upgrade in the form of faux leather. Rather than feeling super casual, these faux leather puffers are a bit more elegant and elevated.

Milder days this fall definitely call for a cool plaid shirt jacket. They look great with jeans and wide-leg pants, but you can also throw one over a dress.

4. Gold Hardware

Make your plain black, gray or navy wool coat stand out from the crowd by choosing a style with eye-catching gold hardware. A gold button or a belt with gold detailing are just two ways to get in on this trend.
