The Winter Trends You Need to Know

Those of us who reside in cold climates have already begun to experience that winter is quickly approaching. Faux-fur, layers, textures, oversized sweaters, and faux leather will fill this year’s winter trends.

These eight fashion trends will make you and your customers want to leave home on the coldest days this winter. From super-shiny suiting, unique outerwear, and enhanced versions of your traditional winter accessories (furry mittens and puffer scarves), you can expect this season is to be an exceptionally stylish one. 

The Catsuit

The catsuit is becoming one of fashion’s favorite trends for its versatility and eye-catching appeal. There’s something about layering pieces that can double as a day and night look that exudes style. The onesies that were seen on the F/W 21 runways are just that! Onesies are sure to be a style that sells out. 

Faux Furs and Fuzz

From bright-red outerwear to baby-pink handbags, a furry trend was apparent on the F/W 21 runways. Regardless of the transition from the 2020’s loungewear period, designers are still producing comfort-style clothing. However, comfortable now looks fuzzy and luxurious. 


The cutout look was all the rage during summer 2021, and it is here to stay for winter! Expect to see a plethora of long-sleeve dresses, tops, and jumpsuits that have subtle slits around the shoulders, waist, and hips.

High Shine

Expect to see super-shiny, reflective trench coats resembling latex in metallic red, black, nude, and green. Pair your trench with a tailored suit or low-slung trousers for a stylish look that can easily transition from day to night while staying warm on the coldest of days. 

Trench Coats 

Sure, we’re almost entirely reacquainted with the outside world again, but that doesn’t mean we want to be seen or exposed at all times. Balaclavas, baseball caps, headscarves, and trench coats are perfect pieces that almost wholly hide your identity. 

Moiré Texture

The most aesthetically pleasing winter 2021 trend will be Moiré, a wavy pattern with textured print seen in the F/W 21 fashion week collections. The moiré look will be another staple when styling winter wardrobe. The Moiré look will be seen on puffer coats, blazers, dresses, and trouser pants. 

Oversized Knit Sweaters

Sweater weather has hit its stride, and it appears top designers are steering away from traditional knitwear. This season expects to see more silhouettes and oversized knits. The large sweater has already been seen worn by fashionistas as dresses paired with thigh-high boots and oversized denim jackets.

Enhanced Accessories

Layers and layers of winter accessories hit the runway. Last season, there were many practical accessories, such as down scarves, throws, fuzzy mittens, boots, and hats. This year you can look for oversized scarves, textured hats, handbags, gaudy earrings, shimmering hair clips, and the Prada-inspired gloves with attached pouches.
