Nothing says winter like a great coat.
When temperatures drop and hybernation sets in, the last thing you want to think about is your wardrobe. But coats can breathe new life into a lackluster closet and set frigid inspiration ablaze.
Let High Street Fashion Co. take the guesswork out of winter dressing by giving you the winter coat trends we love for 2022.
Look Fly in Faux Fur
Glam up your winter looks with a faux fur jacket this winter.
If this is your first foray into this trend, opt for a classic black cropped jacket. It's versatility will fit most style aesthetics and color palettes.

The fun thing about faux fur is it can be dressed in a way that maximizes style or pared down for everyday casual looks.
For a casual look, try a monochromatic black oufit, coupled with your favorite pair of white sneakers and a thick statement sock.
If you are feeling adventurous, try pairing the faux - fur jacket with a pair of plaid pants, combat boots and a beanie.
To go full glam, try wearing a faux fur jacket in a deep purple for an understated pop of color.
Vibe in Vintage
If you're a true fashionista, then you're used to dressing to the rhythm of your own beat.
You set the trends and there's no better way to stand out in the winter than with a vintage coat.
Many of the top coat trends including fur jackets, quilted coats and leather trench coats take inspiration from vintage design.

Why not recreate runway looks with the original source of inspiration?
Here at High Street Fashion Co., we love a vintage '80s trench coat in genuine leather.
Couple with faux - leather pants and snakeskin boots for a sophisticated trend take.
Pair a faux - fur trimmed overcoat with high - heeled combat boots and a baseball cap to add that perfect streetstyle vibe.
Another vintage trend we love is the plaid jacket. Opt for an '80s style jacket in a bright color. Add a graphic tee to create contrast.
Make a Monochrome Statement
If your style is minimal, try making a monochromatic statement.
For winter, we love tonal looks in a cool colorway such as gray, pale blue or blush pink.
An all black look in classic neutrals such as black, tan or winter white works as well.
You can wear all gray and add a pop of color with a chunky combat boot.
For a modernized look, try wearing a colored puffer over an all black outfit. Punctuate the look with a statement boot in a bold print.
If you opt for the latter, make sure the print matches the intensity of the chosen colorway.
