While many fashion-lovers keep a close eye on what’s happening on the runways, the streets outside also provide plenty of style inspiration. This season many street-style stars chose a statement coat to elevate their look, using it as a key trend piece rather than just a way to keep out the cold.
The trench coat seemed to be the ultimate coat trend of the season, with street-style stars looking to new ways to update the classic outerwear. Patent trench coats in particular were a huge hit, breathing new life into the timeless piece. Boxy trench styles were made more feminine with bejewelled belts that cinched in waists, while checked numbers were also worn by the crowds, proving that heritage prints are a hit both on and off the catwalk.
Aside from checks and tartan, animal prints dominated the streets outside the runway shows, with leopard print, snakeskin and even cow prints treading the pavements. A sure-fire way to dress up a look, a statement coat can be worn with everything. Here, we round up some of our favourite street-style looks with some of the coolest coats for AW18.
