Just because you have to combat the cold doesn’t mean you can’t look chic while doing so! In a slew of colors and styles SHOP our top coat picks if you’re trying to find the perfect get-up to keep you looking cool in the cold.
Although the stores might be starting to stock the latest spring styles it doesn’t mean it’s time to pack your winter clothing away — in fact, depending on where you live there’s still a lot more to weather! Although you might be sick of bundling up, (especially after that Polar Vortex!), it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your sense of style — in fact, outerwear is a chic way to really define your look.
Coats For Her — Stylish Outerwear Options:
Everyone from Kim Kardashian to Ariana Grande and Kate Middleton know how to make a major statement simply by bundling up — and you can, too! If you prefer to stand out, why not select a coat in a vibrant pattern or color? While we’ve seen so many trends in silhouettes, I really love the idea of mixing texture. For example, coats with leather detailing, (like sleeves or a belt), really look edgy and chic.
If you prefer something more classic, perhaps you’ll embrace the military trend. The silhouette is definitely more traditional if you want a good coat for everyday dressing. If you love dressing up and have a flair for feminine styles, a drop-waist coat might add a fun touch to any look.
What Coat Is Right For You?
When shopping for a new coat, it’s most important to find the right silhouette that works for you. For example, although oversized cocoon coats are really having a moment, it might be best to opt for a double-breasted style, car coat, or perhaps a fit-and-flare version — that way you won’t have to worry about selecting a look that’s too trendy. However, if you do want to hop on board with a new trend we definitely recommend going for it with your outerwear! If that’s the case, definitely try on a few styles and don’t splurge on a look that might not be around next season unless your totally obsessed with the silhouette.
Living in NYC, I love when fashion meets function — and that’s why I can’t get enough of a coat with a hood. I also really gravitate towards a belted option, because when you cinch in your coat at the waist it breaks up the look and keeps it from getting too bulky. If your coat doesn’t have a belt, feel free to add one of your own! I find sturdy, thick leather belts and even embellished styles work best in this instance.
So, what are you waiting for? Luckily you can scoop up a great coat on sale this time of year so definitely start shopping!
