Fall 2013 Fashion Trend: Cocoon Coats

August 27, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends


If you think you are imagining fashion is continuing to get larger for fall ’13 you would not be wrong. So let’s start with the cocoon coat. We saw it a bit last fall, but now the trend has really taken off as it was on more fall runways than we can count. The arms and shoulders of a cocoon coat should be oversized and the length can be anywear, but we prefer the car-coat length. The material is typically wool and the cut is primarily menswear influenced. Go with a bold black and white houndstooth pattern and/or the hot color of the season – navy. Just be sure to get one! Here are 10 cocoon coats we are coveting for fall ’13:

1. J.Crew Cloth Stadium Cocoon Coat, $350

2. Nicholas Felted Cocoon Coat, $650

3. Nicholas Bubble Boucle Coat, $599
