If you are in the market for a winter coat then you had better get your skates on. According to some fashion gurus or other notable anonymous fashion people, you have already missed the boat as you should have bought it in August! Personally, I think that’s a bit of a ruse made up by retailers to boost sales. As we are now in October though, I can safely say that now IS the right time to buy.
According to a recent article in the online Telegraph, black is the colour most pinned on Pinterest. That’s a shame when there are so many wonderful colours and fabrics available. Coats are the article of clothing that you wear most days throughout the winter and choosing to wear a black coat can make you invisible. A move away from black to a stylish pattern or rich colour is guaranteed to make you feel great even when the elements are against you. It’s also a sure fire way to stand out in the crowd and that has to be a good thing.
Here are my top 3 coat trends and a sneaky jacket to help you wrap up in style:-
A glamorous edition to any wardrobe. You can’t help but look chic in leopard print even if you’re wearing scruffy jeans underneath.
You’ll always look well turned out in a military style coat – sorry! Khaki is one of the colours of the season so you can nail two trends in one.
Tweeds and Checks
The heritage look is everywhere on the high street and there is a huge amount of quality fabrics and timeless styles to choose from. Look out for large checks and bold colour tweeds too.
Yes, really! Hilariously called ‘Luxe Sport’ by some of the fashion press. They are practical, warm and extremely useful – enough said.
Stockists – Leopard print – River Island, Military Coat – Stradivarius, Tweed Coat – Zara, Puffa – Mango
