The 8 Types Of Jackets That EVERYONE Is Wearing

You could spend the rest of winter bundled away in one of your plain, black jackets again — or you could do the fun thing and try something new for a change.
Deciding to make a switch is step one. Step two? Well, that's much harder when you have to consider all the options out there, everything this potential new jacket needs to match with, and whether or not the one you've got your eye on will feel so 2016 in a few years. Sometimes, you need a second opinion...so, how about a gazillion more?

We asked our buds at Pinterest to share their data about the jacket styles that received the most pins from the past year. We've compiled them here (along with some shopping recommendations) so you can see the options that other people are also mulling over, which might help you in your own search. Cheers!
