Leather or printed? Maxi length or oversize? Selecting the trendy coat, that will last for more than one season.
Design for the sake of design's no longer works, and well-known brands take this into account, offering more functional models of coats this season. Bet on deliberate simplicity, oversize and maxi length – these are the trends that designers presented at fashion shows. This season, the color palette is very diverse: from classic blue to all shades of red, yellow and pink.
Straight, voluminous coats, like in The Row or Bottega Veneta collections, are a real must-have for the upcoming spring. It would seem that oversized clothes should leave the fashion Olympus for a long time ago, but this trend persists: a coat, as if from someone else's shoulder, still tops most fashionable clothes of spring 2020. Under this loose outwear, you can easily fit a warm sweater or a woolen jacket.

And if many designers offer classic models in black and grey tones, then Oscar de la Renta and Lanvin advise you to pay attention to more interesting styles. With this coat, it’s easy to create a layered look, and many designers offer a bolder decision: to wear a coat over a naked body. In everyday life, such a provocative technique is not suitable for everyone, so we recommend wearing a coat with an evening open dresses. A boxy cut will emphasize the fragility, and bright details will definitely attract the attention of others.

Despite the fact that midi length remains not only the most versatile, but also the most popular, this spring, the main trend is long coats. This model is recommended to be combined both with daring mini and maxi skirts, loose pants, dresses, shorts, jackboots and even sneakers. Designers offer many options: a coat with a patchwork print, like Oscar de la Renta, or a classic long coat in burgundy, like Max Mara. And Fendi combined several trends and presented a suede coat in a brown-beige version - it turned out to be a great alternative to strict classic options.

The most traditional, but no less topical print of the season is plaid in all its interpretation: tartan, pied-de-poule or Prince of Wales (Coco Chanel’s favorite print). Prada and Chanel collections set the tone for this coat trend this season: designers recommend combining this print with monochrome suits or bright clothing, and the most daring are invited to wear plaid with stripes.

It is important to be able to highlight practical elements from the runway collections, that will be relevant in everyday life. Floral, animalistic and exotic prints are still at the peak of popularity, and inspiration can be drawn from the collections of Dolce & Gabbana, Christopher Kane and Sally Lapointe. Remember that an item with bright prints is interesting in itself. Therefore, there is a small life hack for those who hesitate to wear clothes of unusual colors: surround such items with dark tones - let it distract all attention to itself.

A classic that never goes out of style is a leather coat. It returns to the wardrobes in spring 2020: Balenciaga's geometric, clear styles are contrasted with the soft, relaxed silhouettes of the Bottega Veneta coats. Designers recommend avoiding simple color combinations and choosing bright, rich shades: from blue, orange and fuchsia to cream and turquoise. A leather coat not only goes well with a dress, pencil skirt, trousers, as well as maxi and mini lengths, but also perfectly rescues you from the chilly wind.
