Chewbacca is in da house

You may have cut bangs or your hair real short during the Coronavirus lockdown, but the coat trends for fall 2020 show that your outwear will come with long hair this year. In fact, the hairier, the better. Miu Miu and Stella McCartney will have you walking around like a fluffy Chewbacca in fantastic shearling numbers, and we’re obsessing over this cosy fall outwear trend.

Puffers are still a thing

Puffers are again one of the major coat trends for fall 2020. No matter if long or short, quilted or not. The outwear fashion houses like Prada, Toga, Nanushka, and even Dior want you to wear next season comes puffed up. 

Deconstructed and Patchwork

The most fashion-forward coat trend in 2020 is the deconstructed and patchwork-like outwear. With interesting silhouettes and complicated constructions that have an artisanal feel, they are real show-stoppers. We especially loved John Galliano’s creations for Maison Margiela.

Parkas are back

The Parkas of the ’90s are back and they are a super practical fall outwear trend. Typical of the British countryside lifestyle, the water-proof anoraks are the most no-nonsense of the coat trends 2020. They keep you warm enough in windy and rainy autumn days. Wear these timeless parkas over skirts as we saw at Maison Margiela, Bottega Veneta and Petar Petrov. Otherwise, pair your parka with matching shorts and bucket hat as Dior did.

Modern Little Red Riding Hood and Super Heroes

They may not make you fly, but capes will be the stars this fall. You will see them everywhere, with or without hoods. This fall outwear trend will go from long, elegant capes like Michael Kors and JW Anderson’s to shorter ones like Gucci’s version. If you must choose only one from the coat trends for fall 2020, go for the cape. The classic piece elevates any outfit, and you’ll wear it for many years to come.
