Winter is rapidly approaching, even though some people, especially those who live in colder climates, aren’t ready to accept it. There are some things that can be added to the snow, wind, or freezing temperatures, that will not cause winter blues. These are the cold-weather trends for this year, which have the perfect mood-enhancing effect as the days get shorter.

After a long trip down memory lane, and examining every F/W21 runway collection in detail we came up with eight trends that would make the coldest winter days seem like a breeze. This season promises to be a fashion-forward one with super-shiny suits, unique outerwear and 2.0 versions for your typical winter accessories (think furry mittens and opera gloves as well as puffer scarves). Scroll down to see the eight most important trends you should know and wear when winter arrives.


There’s something so intriguing about a layering piece which doubles as a go-out staple. This is why we are so fascinated by the F/W21 oneies. The catsuit has been seen at presentations by LaQuanSmith, Ottolinger and Prada as well as Rick Owens. It is becoming a favorite trend for its versatility, eye-catching appeal, and easy accessibility.

Shop the trend:

  • H&M Sleeveless Unitard ($25)
  • Reformation Emmy Ecostretch Jumpsuit ($118)
  • Wilfred Divinity Jumpsuit ($98)

Cold-Weather Cutouts

If the summer cutout craze of 2021 was going to fade once the temperature drops, think again. Designers are digging deeper into this trend and finding new ways to bring the peekaboo style to winter. Look out for long-sleeved tops and jumpsuits that have sleek slits at the hips, shoulders, waist and hips.

Shop the trend:

  • Who What Wear Collection Stella Cutout Midi Dress ($175)
  • Jonathan Simkhai Leah Top ($345)
  • Eloquii Off the Shoulder Jersey Dress ($100)

Furry Frenzy Winter 2021

From bright-red outerwear from Bottega Veneta, to baby-pink handbags from Blumarine – a furry frenzy was evident on the F/W21 runways. Fashion’s shift away from 2020’s comfort-first mentality is evident, but designers aren’t ready to abandon that cozy feeling just yet. However, this time, comfort looks different. We mean luxurious and fuzzy.

Shop the trend:

  • Mango Pocketed Faux-Fur Coat ($200)
  • & Other Stories Faux Fur Jacket ($299)
  • The Arrivals Kala III Jacket ($990)

High Shine Winter

You would be amazed at the positive impact slipping on a super-shiny coat, suit or pair of trousers, even if it is dark outside and 4 p.m., can have on your mood. That’s the belief of today’s top designers from Off-White to Burberry to Peter Do and Gucci. Fashion is moving towards the reflective side with metallics and latex for winter 2021.

Shop the trend:

  • ACNE Studios Puffer Trench ($560)
  • Jeffrey Campbell Lenna Penny Loafer ($160)
  • Commando Patent Faux Leather Leggings ($98)

Incognito Mode

Ami, Celine and Dior found a way to disguise your identity by wearing balaclavas and baseball caps.

Shop the trend:

  • &Other Stories Knitted Cashmere Hood ($55)
  • Eloquii Faux Leather Strong Shoulder Coat ($180)
  • Who What Wear Cate Boot ($189)

Moire is More

Winter 2021’s most popular and visually pleasing pattern? Moire is the wavy, textured pattern Marine Serre and Sandy Liang all used in their F/W 21 collections. We can see why. The moire effect will soon be a part of your winter wardrobe.

Shop the trend:

  • Zara Jacquard Mini Skirt ($46)
  • Marine Serre Logo-Embroidered Moire Baseball Cap ($219)
  • Batsheva Natasha Bow Ruffled Midi Skirt ($200)

Knit Knit Knit

Gabriela Hearst evidently had knitwear in her head when she used it in numerous ways across her name brand and Chloe. She was also the creative director of Chloe in 2020. Knit scarves were used at Jonathan Simkhai and Ganni to attach to sweaters of oversize.

Shop the trend:

  • Who What Wear Collection Cassandra Herringbone Bustier ($115)
  • Shop the matching Lulu Midi Herringbone Skirt ($155)
  • Raey Recycled-Cashmere Blend Roll-Neck Dress ($560)

At last, winter accessories and layers have been a trend on the runway. We saw an increase in utilitarian (with fashion twist!) accessories last February. Accessories include everything from throws and down scarves to boots and fuzzy mittens to hats and boots. You never know what you might find. Perhaps being trendy in winter doesn’t necessarily mean you have to avoid practical clothes. *Crosses fingers. *

  • Yves Salomon Meteo Off-White Wool Convertible Flap Gloves ($115)
