It’s getting darker earlier, the wind is getting colder, and the sensation of wanting to stay inside and snuggle up in a warm blanket and some hot chocolate is intensifying. However, we all have responsibilities and most of us will have to go out of the house a lot even if we don’t feel like it. This is why, for both the sake of keeping warm and looking stylish, it’s good to know a little about the latest trends in coat and jackets, so you know what to look after when shopping this season:
1. A LONG FITTED COAT
This type of coat has enjoyed a lot of popularity as of recently, beings probably the most versatile one on this list. This coat has the ability to frame the body and giving the outfit you’re wearing structure, even if you’re wearing more layers. Pair it with fancier shirts and dresses for your elegant looks, or hoodies and sweatshirts for your casual wear. And when it comes to the color, make sure to choose one that will complement most of the pieces in your wardrobe, as you will be wearing this coat for a few months almost on a daily basis. Beige, brown, black and grey are the safest choices to go with.
2. A FAUX FUR JACKET
Faux fur is all the rage now, and it comes in all types of different colors and designs so those kind of jackets will be able to keep you warm and looking good this winter. A shorter, puffier jacket is perfect for a night out, to give your outfit a classy touch. Opt for a longer one when it comes to your daytime outfits, when keeping warm is quintessential.
3. A PUFFER JACKET
Puffer jackets, styled correctly, can look amazingly cool. Especially now when you have the option to buy metallic, gold and bright colored ones to make a statement out of your outfit. Because it will make your upper body look voluminous, pair it with some skinny jeans and boots to elongate and slim down your legs and create contrast. This way, your outfit will look like runway material. You can also get some inspiration from supermodels and style it with heeled boots.
4. PATENT JACKETS
Honestly, if you’re looking for an item that will give that extremely cool, vintage vibe to your look, the patent jacket is the way to go. There is something timeless and rebellious about it. This one is also very versatile, as you will be able to wear it with a wide variety of sweatshirts, jumpers and shirts; it can also come in the shape of a basic jacket or a long coat/trench. It may lack a bit in the keeping warm department, but hey, sometimes we suffer for beauty and fashion.
5. THE TRENCH COAT
Another timeless piece. It’s a classy, beautiful type of coat that will look ideal with oversized sunglasses, a clutch, and your favorite pair of boots. No matter what you wear underneath it, it will still highlight your waist and keep your body shape with the help of a wide belt. Every It Girl needs at least one quality trench coat at hand to wrap herself up in during the colder days.
