What was once considered a staple in the 90s is now officially back: puffer coats are starting to take over the apparel scene. Whether you favor a bomber style, long coat, or a length that sits just under the belly button, there are so many options in a variety of colors that makes this jacket hard to resist. Other looks that will be in-demand this winter include quilted, warm down-filled, and checked print coats.

If you enjoy a more traditional approach, these styles remain highly-regarded options for the upcoming season: microfiber hooded jackets with rip-stop fabric for durability, soft shell jackets with contrast side panels for active styling and multiple pockets for functionality, as well as hooded fleece lined jackets with wind and water resistance.

In the colder months, you can never go wrong with sporting a beanie, as long as it has a very soft hand. Lightweight fabrics that incorporate warming technologies are highly sought after, especially if they come in favorite sports team colors. Consider matching the color of your headwear with a scarf for a coordinated sports fan outfit!

If a jacket isn’t required in your neck of the woods, lightweight French terry and sueded fleece sweaters are popular designs that capture the essence of retro style. In particular, those offered in a wicking fabric are being widely used, as there’s nothing worse than feeling too hot and sticky in a sweater. Breathable fabrics will wick the sweat off the skin, allowing for a more relaxed and cozy experience.
