It’s that time of year again. The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping lower. As we ease into the cooler season it’s time to start looking for your ‘must-have’ cold weather accessories.
Nowadays it’s not as easy as it sounds, especially if you’re on the search for the perfect coat to last for multiple winter seasons. Here are a few tips to guarantee that your fashion will be keeping it cool while you stay warm.
Versatility is Key: Sure trendy seasonal coats are always appealing but most of the time they’re only trendy for the season. Make sure that your coat is versatile enough to stand the test of time.
Bold Colors & Prints: although dark colored coats do go with virtually anything and everything, it doesn’t mean that you can’t hop outside of the box. Choose a bright solid color that is flattering to your complexion or for multiple colors look for patterns like houdstooth or tweed that are versatile enough for everyday.
Fashionable Fur: it’s undeniably one of the warmest ways to wear a coat. They’re made to last and their functionality will last you for years. If you’re going to splurge, aim for a medium to full length coat to keep you warm through the cooler seasons.
Asymmetrical: this is one style that’s taken its inspiration from vintage fashion and incorporated modern fabrics and prints to make them relevant and elegant. Find asymmetrical cuts in leather, wool, or bouclé.
