Models from Left to Right:


The cape coat is such a fun runway trend adopted for mini me’s because of its playful and roomy silhouette, and its versatility to throw on top a polished pair of pants or jeans alike. Here with a warm and toasty faux fur trim. Girl’s sizes XS - XL.

Cat & Jack Cape Coat, $39.99, target.com


Here we get two trends in one: the fitted and cropped moto jacket and the splash of red in earth-friendly vegan suede. If last season we painted the town red, it’s even redder this year, so opt for a coat in this color and have all eyes on hue.

For the guys, a blue coat is the trend to beat. Light blue, navy—any shade of blue will do, whether it’s a sleek, body-fitting blazer as we see here—and do opt for the sleeker silhouette— Is, a double breasted, a pea coat or a sporty bomber. Just get in touch with your blue period, and you’ll be all set.

Blue Blazer, $136.80, Tanger Outlets at J. Crew Factory, tangeroutlet.com


When things get cold, we reach for the puffer, let’s admit it. But avoid the dark neutrals and go for the bold, bringing your puffer into the light. Bright colors are huge for kids this season. This coat is also available in a vibrant blue and complete with a cozy fleece lining to keep this teen warm when running about his busy life in NYC.

Bold Cozy Puffer, $79.95, abercrombie.com


Cool, mix & match styles for edgy, playful peeps.

Personalizing your bomber jackets with patches is totally the in thing as seen by celeb kiddos by way of Jessica Alba and Alec Baldwin’s crew, and countless others everywhere: it’s about self expression right? Not to mention bombers are prevalent so look for details that make it unique. This one has metallic fabric ( fall trend alert!) and striped ribbing, which completely match this kiddo’s sporty personality. Patches sold separately and are washable.

Leopard was pervasive on the runways and oh-so-sleek in this blazer. You’ll also find it in coats with belts, and longer silhouettes—it’s simply the print of the season! Pair up easily with a white T-shirt and black pants and your favorite sneakers and you’re ready for an afternoon of chasing after your son!

Denim jackets are making such a comeback, I feel like I'm in the 80s again! But this one by far caught my attention by Nicky + Stella because it is personalized with her name on the back!

So again, we’re talking about this huge trend of customization. There are 4 different colors of stitching (pink, royal blue, black, and red) and goes up to kid’s size 10/12. As each order is custom, allow time for completion from this small, woman-owned business (6-8 weeks for delivery).

This military-inspired jacket is a triple-threat of trend, with the aviator jacket, faux leather and shearling interior. With such a heavy jacket, layers are the key to staying cool and love the hiking boots here by Timberland; he’s ready for the outdoors or chasing down his four kids! This khaki color coat also comes in a neutral beige and starling blue….taking us back full circle to that men’s trend of the blue coat.

With most women’s coats this season, it’s go big or go home. One thing is for sure with this huge shearling coat: you throw it on and you are instantaneously super warm and you’ve made your style statement the minute you step out the door. With so much volume on top, go nice and tight below with your lower half to counter balance.
