Main 4 ingredients
as an overview


1. Colors

Ultra pigmented colors are taking over the trends for this fall/winter! With an overall increase in clicks of 163% on the jackets and coats category, frog green will be THE color of choice (right, Dua Lipa?). Brown shades (orange and chocolate brown) will also be very popular.


2. Knee Length

This fall, we will leave our very long coats in the closet and instead opt for the knee length, as seen on the Max Mara, Prada or Saint-Laurent runway shows. On Stylight, we have already noted an increase of 11% in clicks on this category of coats.


3. Faux Fur

It’s time to talk about materials that will give us the trendiest coats of 2021. In previous years the teddy coat was the piece to invest in and after continual increased interest in green shopping as well as the increased awareness in the fight against animal cruelty – synthetic fur is becoming the new favorite. On Stylight, we’ve seen an increase in interest in faux fur of +26% year-over-year.


4. Thin Belts

Almost the entire Fall/Winter collection of Max Mara presented coats with extremely thin belts on top. We also saw this trend in the coats of Bottega Veneta – available of course in the season’s “It” colors. On Stylight, the clicks on thin belts this year are 37% higher than last year.

Trend #2
Oversized Bomber jackets

College style or oversized, the bomber will also be very present this fall. Seen at Prada, Philosophy, Louis Vuitton, Etro, and adopted by the most prominent it-girls of the moment, the bomber will be one of the star pieces of the season! Bottega Veneta has even introduced a leather version. On Stylight, clicks for oversized bombers have already increased by 33%.

Trend #3
Quilted Coats

We saw the quilted coat in all its splendor on the Max Mara runway, luxurious, floor length and green in color (the inevitable color of the season). Maybe this cozy outerwear isn’t so unheard of after all- we’re all coming out of a year of lockdown where walking around with a blanket over our shoulders wasn’t so strange. On Stylight, we saw a +40% increase in clicks for this category of coats.

Trend #4
Long Synthetic Fur Coat

The faux fur trend this year has been presented by many brands, making it a real must-have this season. A little longer and ruffled by Prada, a curled and short version by Bottega and plush effect by Stella McCartney just to name a few. As we have already anticipated, the success of synthetic fur is also based increased focus on eco-responsibility and being animal cruelty-free. Clicks on Stylight have increased by +26% compared to the previous year.
