Days are getting colder, and nights are feeling darker, which can only mean one thing: Winter will be here sooner than we think. Like hot chocolate and cozy fires, there are a few essentials we all need during the cold months. Most importantly, a good winter coat.

There are a few winter coat trends everyone should consider when shopping for a new outerwear staple this year. It’s true that you can always turn to your winter coat from last year, but keep in mind that this is a piece you’ll likely wear more than anything in your closet this season. So it has to look good, always.

If you’re ready to shop for a new winter coat, take a look at this season’s most popular trends that you’re going to see everywhere.

1. Maxi

Coats are getting longer this year. We’re seeing longline jackets in a variety of styles, from floor-sweeping trench coats to puffer jackets joining into the maxi-length look. Not only do these types of coats make a statement, they’re also great for keeping your legs warm.

Topshop designed this trench coat with a cozy, oversized fit.

$196 at Nordstrom

Designed with a swirled, quilted motif, this longline jacket is made from warm, puffer material.

2. Faux Shearling

Nothing keeps you feeling comfy quite like soft shearlings and furs, so we’re excited to see how popular faux shearling coats are this year. So many brands have turned to the trend, offering styles made entirely from the soft material or jackets with a faux-shearling accent on the collar or trim.

Bernardo's double-breasted coat is designed entirely in faux shearling for a retro feel that looks like it stepped out of the ’70s.

$199 at Nordstrom

This Levi's coat is detailed with shearling on both the notch collar and trim for a warm feel and cozy look.

For ultimate warmth, pick this Sam Edelman puffer with contrast faux-shearling and quilted panels.

$150 at Nordstrom

3. Plaid

If you’re looking for a more classic look this winter, try out checked coats. Plaid prints are always in style and often come in neutral colorways that will go well with any hats, scarves and gloves. You can find check prints in any style of winter coat, from trenches to puffers.

Picture Organic Clothing's take on the plaid trend uses recycled cotton fleece that feels soft and meets Nordstrom's Sustainably Sourced Materials criteria.

$150 at Nordstrom

This coat touches on both the plaid and maxi trends, so you don't have to pick just one.

$130 at Nordstrom

Made with plaid high-pile fleece and channel quilting, Columbia's hybrid jacket is definitely a warm choice.

4. Quilted

Quilted shell jackets are the perfect all-weather choice because they’re usually waterproof for rain and snow. Plus, most shell jackets are insulated for warmth. We’ve been seeing the trend across silhouettes, patterns and colorways, so you can pick one with a utilitarian vibe or a more sophisticated feel, depending on your style.

This water-resistant coat has a unique, rounded quilt pattern and a relaxed fit that’s perfect for layering.

$129 at Nordstrom

Bernardo's take on the trend is filled with EcoPlume recycled poly insulation to keep you warm without feeling heavy.

$100 at Nordstrom

Designed in a classic, diamond quilted pattern, this Lauren Ralph Lauren puffer coat is made from recycled fibers and has a removable hood.

$130 at Nordstrom
