Still out and about in your trusty denim vest or battered leather jacket? Agreed, you do look good but winter is almost here and it might be time to get yourself wrapped up in one of this seasons trend coats. Here are a few suggestions:
Topping this year’s hot list are definately nice long coats with fake fur lapels. The mix of wool coat and fur lapel will keep you stylish AND warm this winter. Go for earthy tones to match pretty much all your outfits and to keep it classic. If you’re on a budget, try throwing a fake fur stole over one of your old winter coats to give it a new look or check out your local charity shops for vintage pieces.
Bordeaux and Burgundy; Berry Colours are all over the high street at the moment. Add a dash of colour to your wardrobe with these wonderful numbers. Plus you won’t have to worry too much about spilling your mulled wine. ;)
Animal print fur coats are still big this season, so if you still have your trusty leopard print coat from last year, don’t be afraid to wear it! These kind of coats are not for shy peeps as they pretty much scream “Look at me!”. But don’t let the print put you off, they are actually very versatile and wearable. This years on-trend addition to the family are dalmation spots – if you don’t want to go full force try adding dalmation accessories to your look for an instant wardrobe update.
The Parka is definately a wardrobe staple and every girl should have one. Parkas are versatile and stylish and always on trend. Ideal to make the transition from autumn to winter, these weather resistant beauties will keep you warm and dry in wind and snow. Charactaristic for a proper Parka is a nice fur-lined hood and big front pockets to burry your hands in. Traditionally Parkas were used by the military which is why they are usually green but if you wan’t to go for a more sophisticated look, there is plenty of other colours to choose from!
Don’t be afraid to invest in a nice duffle coats because they are, like Parkas, always on trend. These classic coats are usually made from a thick wollen material and closed with a number of toggle-fastenings at the front. This year’s duffle coats come in all kinds of shades and with a hood or without but mostly with a bit of fake fur. A duffle gives every outfit an instant twist because of the detailing on the front in combination with the classic cut.
Speaking of classic cuts, with these coats you simply can’t go wrong. The classic coat shape single- or double-breasted will be with you for all times and through all trends. Keep it simple and classic and invest in a one-coloured coat either in black or brown to go with everything. Or try one of this season’s trends and go for contrast – either contrasting sleeves or, a bit mor subtile, a contrasting lapel. Again you can update these by throwing on a fur stole and transforming it into an on-trend piece.
