Best Jacket Design for Fall Winter 2018-19
1. Holographic Jacket Design
The newest, boldest and also #1 trend of the season, iridescent outerwear is super trendy for Fall Winter 2018. It’s the perfect way to add color and shine to dull wintry outfits! This trend was seen on front open, bar, oversized and holo sequin jackets. You could try plastic holo fashion jackets like the ones by Maison Margiela during the rainy season!
2. Mix Media Fur Jackets
Faux fur jackets look luxurious and can add the style factor to any outfit. This fuzzy jacket designs is usually sleek, monochromatic and elegant. But for FW18, top brands like Chanel, Dior and D&G are heading towards fun, colorful, embellished ones that are combined with other fabrics and textures! Roberto Cavalli had two different types of fur together, Chanel went for a tweed & fur and feathers & fur combo and Alice + Olivia mashed up fur with brocade panels.
3. Exaggerated Shoulder Pads
Dramatic and emphasized, this women’s fall jacket is one the top trends for Fall 2018. While shoulder pads have always been in style, this season, designers are going for sharper and more protruding shoulders, creating a boxy silhouette. Try different variations like overemphasized, pagoda and pointy, all of which we saw on the FW18 runways.
4. Cropped Jacket Design
This season we’re seeing cropped jackets of all lengths from just above the waistline to just below the bust. From biker jackets to tux and capes, the short jacket trend was pretty prominent on the Fall 2018 runways. These cute jackets would be great during the transitional autumn season. You can try extremely cropped ones like Ralph & Russo or barely cropped like Versace.
5. Velvet Tuxedo Bar Jacket
Classy bar jackets with tux-style satin lapels in rich velvet fabrics are trendy jacket styles for Fall Winter 2018-19. These jacket designs are a great way to dress up your formal outfits. You can opt for a chic, plain one like Alexander Wang or a sparkly embellished one like Dolce & Gabbana.

6. Statement Sequinned Jackets
We’ve all seen sequinned jackets walked down the runways season after season. However, this season we’re seeing sequins used in different ways as opposed to the regular completely sequinned jackets. Whether they’re a part of an embroidery, combined with fringes, sewed in a pattern or patchworked, this jacket design is huge for Fall Winter 2018.
7. Oversized Jacket Styles
If you’re like me and you love to shop oversized comfy jackets and sweaters from the men’s section, this jacket design trend is for you! Unlike last season’s oversized trend, this season is about dramatized jackets that almost look like they’re swallowing you. It’s pretty much all that walked the Marc Jacobs and Maison Margiela runways. We saw this trend in shoulder pad jackets, holo jackets and leather jackets.
8. Silver Metallic Fashion Jackets
On the fall 2018 runways, metallic silver was seen as an all-over color rather than an accent. From plain and fringed to embellished and even holo silver metallic jackets, these women’s fashion jackets are a definite must-have! But of course, we saw other metallics like gold and copper too as accents, but not enough to make it to our list of women’s fall jacket trends. Try a bright silver like Dior, a frosted one like Moschino or a muted silver like Armani.
9. Embellished Leather Jacket Styles
Leather jacket designs with ornamental and surface work on them are popular fall jackets for women. Try these cool leather jackets with sequins, beads, fringes, studs and rhinestones.
10. Cape Jacket Design
Jeremy Scott was a big fan of this trend at fall fashion weeks with plenty of looks donning a cape style jacket at his Moschino show. Button up and zipper capes, fur capes and embellished capes were popular in other top designer fashion shows like D&G, Giorgio Armani and Fendi.
