How to Look Stylish in your Winter Coat this winter
As the snow lays thick on the ground in many cities, and there’s no sign yet of Spring, you’d better check that you’ve got a winter coat that is a) warm and b) fashionable. While winter coats are expected to last longer than a season, if your 2011-2 purchase was at the cutting edge of fashion you may find it turns head for all the wrong reasons! Check your wardrobe and if you think you need a new coat, there are some great fashionable bargains to be had as we move into mid-season. Just to reassure you, you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for bulk and warmth. Don’t just grab the biggest, thickest, warmest coat you can find- it will be unflattering and not make you feel good about yourself. Go for what’s known as a “statement coat”. It will be bold, possibly brash, and say “this is me- here I am!”
You want to be warm, but you don’t want to be shapeless. The solution? Be quilted and belted! A quilted coat like this one will keep you warm, but not make you look like a swollen marshmallow Michelin-man because the contrast-coloured belt will help accentuate your waist, making it appear smaller. Nice!
And now let’s assume you’ve acquired your winter coat and are looking for some embellishments to compliment it. Buy a versatile and fetching hat. A hat can instantly pull together your look- headgear gets noticed, often before anything else you are wearing. Ideally, you should purchase a neutral-toned hat that complements your coat.
Winter equals knitted Hats: In fashion right now are ones with Norwegian patterns and large knits; definitely able to make a Killing on the Bridge- if you get my (snowy) drift and TV reference!
