5 Coat and Jacket Trends to Shop Now for Fall 2023

Welcome to the world of fashion where the leaves fall, and the coats rise. Fall 2023 is all about making a statement with your luxury outerwear. From emotional duvet coats to luxurious leather trench coats, oversized blazers to long black coats, and checkered masterpieces, we've got you covered. Let's dive into the top 5 designer coat and jacket trends of the season and the best secondhand designer brands to buy them from.


1. Emotional Outerwear: Uber Voluminous and Fluffy Duvet Coats

If you're looking to ditch the traditional puffer jacket this fall and embrace a cozier, more expressive option, look no further than the oversized duvet coat. This trend, as spotted on the runways of Stella McCartney, Givenchy, and Victoria Beckham, offers both style and warmth. Not only is this trend fashion-forward, but it's also incredibly practical. It's an easy throw-on piece that will keep you warm without sacrificing style

In a season where subtlety reigns supreme, opt for a buttery yellow duvet coat, one of Fall 2023's key colour trends. We love this secondhand designer option from Simone Rocha.

2. Luxury Leather Trench Coats

While the classic beige Burberry trench coat is a timeless piece, this fall is all about adding an edge to your wardrobe. Enter designer trench coats in vinyl and leather. Simone Rocha's vinyl trench coat, for instance, exudes an irresistible mix of sophistication and rebelliousness. Dress it up for a night out or dress it down for a casual, chic look.

But fear not if you're a fan of the classics. The quintessential Burberry trench coat is still a beloved choice. It's a staple that transcends seasons and trends, ensuring you'll always look effortlessly elegant. 

3. Shoulder-Padded Oversized Blazers

 Oversized blazers with shoulder pads are still making waves in the fashion world. This timeless wardrobe staple has received a contemporary twist, making it a must-have for Fall 2023. For that high-end touch, consider investing in a secondhand designer oversized blazer, like the one from Camilla and Marc. It's a versatile piece that can elevate any outfit effortlessly, from the office to after work drinks or thrown atop a pair of straight leg jeans and top.

4. The LBC (Long Black Coats)

Who thought the trend that reigns supreme this fall would be one of the most timeless outerwear styles — in our opinion — to exist. However, there is a bit of criteria to meet to hit the long Black Coats trend on the nail. Instead of a slouchy oversized wool coat, opt for a structured and shoulder padded black coat that falls just above the ankle, as seen in Victoria Beckham's collection. It's a versatile piece that exudes everything we love about understated, quiet luxury. And if black isn't your colour, you're still in luck – any coat with ankle-sweeping length, from neutral tones to bold and brights, is right on trend for the season.

5. Check Mate

Vivienne Westwood took center stage on the runways with a plethora of plaid and checkered coats. Whether it's plaids, checks, or houndstooth prints, these patterns bring a touch of joviality to the season well before the holidays arrive. You can wear them head to toe, pair them with contrasting patterns, or simply use them to add texture to your ensemble.

From Isabel Marant's timeless tweed to Tanya Taylor's intricate checkering, these coats are as versatile as they are essential. They transition seamlessly from your workday attire to your weekend adventures.
