For all the outerwear lovers who have been patiently waiting for the leaves to start falling and the temps to drop, your time to shine is now. The outerwear trends for fall have officially landed, and it’s time to start making your fabric and style choices. From furry fun to puffy wonders, these outerwear trends are stylish and meant to be seen.

1. Fur Textures

Shearling accents and all-over fuzzy coats are here to cover those in the coolest of temp. Fuzzy outerwear adds instant style to any outfit while providing the warmth needed to brave the winter. For those that don't need the warmest outerwear but love the warmth of fur and all things fuzzy, opt for shearling or fur details to get the same look without bold and boiling commitment. Shearling lining is sure to keep you cozy, while a fur collar and cuffs will add instant glam.

2. Quilted Puffer Jackets

Stay warm in colder temps with the help of a puffer jacket. Whether you prefer a puffer or quilted style, the result remains the same. Popular offerings for the season are cropped, oversized, and colorful varieties. While your puffer preference is up to you, one stand-out silhouette is the oversized puffer. Opting for an oversized puffer speaks to the sporty and streetwear side of fashion, offering a result that’s far from basic. This look varies from over the top to understated—the choice is yours.

3. Colorful Leather

Update your leather collections with fun new colors from pastels to jewel tones, which is different from recent years where the classic black leather reigned supreme in outerwear. The leather trench might just take precedence over the traditional leather moto jacket (which is still a staple) this year.

4. Ponchos and Capes

It’s easy to get all wrapped up in this effortlessly easy trend. Capes and ponchos are easy to throw on and even easier to adjust to any look you’re trying to achieve. Add a hood to a poncho for a more functional look, or use a wool fabric to trap in the warmth. Get experimental with the length to achieve an array of looks. A poncho or cape will keep you cozy (like your favorite blanket but better) while you’re on the move.

5. Bomber Jackets

As bomber jackets make their return to fashion this time, they're ready to make a statement whether you prefer an oversized or cropped style. The bomber jackets of this season are meant to be styled in a super sleek way—As suggested by the runway. Notable variations are made with statement sleeves or lined in a contrasting color.
