With so many different styles to choose from, it can be difficult to find a flattering coat. Coats for women come in a wide range of cuts, colours, and materials. Because there is so much choice, it is important to establish exactly what you want from your coat before you begin your search.
This means thinking about how warm you want the coat to be, and you should make your choice depending on the season. Also, think about whether or not you need a hood, if it rains frequently, then a hood is probably a good idea, and so too is a decent waterproof material, such as nylon.
Think about the colours in your wardrobe, and choose a coat that suits the majority of your clothing – it is no good buying your ‘perfect’ coat, then realising that it clashes with your sense of style and the colours you wear most often – if in doubt, always opt for black, as it matches all other colours.
If you want to look fashionable in your coat, either you can choose a style that is currently en vogue, or you can opt for a classic look. Here, we will look at some of the classic styles of coat that are also in fashion. By selecting a coat that has both qualities, you know that you will look like a trendsetter, while at the same time ensuring that you cannot make a fashion faux pas, as these coats never go out of fashion.
Starting with a classic cut, the pea coat is great for colder climates. Pea coats are normally woolen, and have a rather long cut, finishing below the hips. They have been around since the 18th century, but remain extremely popular. Pea coats are associated with sailors, and so have a nautical theme. This is great in terms of fashion, because this season, there will be a strong nautical theme running throughout the fashion world.
Pea coats suit a wide range of styles and are fantastically versatile, concerning the types of outfits they suit. They work equally well in formal settings when teamed with a suit, as they do in an informal setting when teamed with skinny jeans and a block-coloured t-shirt.
Trench coats are great for wearing in cold and wet weather because they are warm and waterproof too.
There are many different styles of trench coat, which means that you have the option to experiment with the look. Many trench coats for women come with added embellishments. If you want to look fashionable in a trench coat this season, then choose a style with a wide belt and a large buckle.
In terms of colour, opt for camel. Camel colours are a huge trend this season, particularly when it comes to coats.
Trench coats match a variety of different styles, but tend to be more suitable for women who love to wear a classic style of clothing.
