Though the weather doesn't quite demand that we bring out our heavy-duty coats just yet, it's obvious to anyone who has stepped foot outside over the past week that a summer dress and light cardigan isn't enough anymore. 

Yes, outerwear season is truly here - and there is one jacket that seems to be bagging a lot more of the spotlight than others. 

The global demand for quilted jackets and gilets on Lyst has been growing, with searches for these styles currently up 61% month-on-month.

Generally, the most sought after colours are khaki, beige and brown (which makes perfect sense, given the autumnal vibes). 

Where did the quilted coat trend come from, you ask? 

Well, it has a lot of do with New York-based retailer The Frankie Shop, which has been doing the rounds on Instagram and has sold out numerous times already this year. In fact, page views for the brand’s padded jackets have spiked 129% since September.

Luckily, the high street has been quick to adopt the trend, with everyone from Barbour to John Lewis, M&S. and Boden creating their own collection of quilted outerwear. 

However, the affordable high street designs are being snapped up just as quick, so if you want to get in on the coat trend of 2021, you may want to act fast. 

Here are the best quilted coats and jackets we can find right now (and that are still in stock) to keep you feeling on top of the trends all season-long.
