Options to keep warm this winter.
Your coat is probably the most important component of your winter wardrobe, so it’s probably a good idea to give it a little bit of thought, and of course there’s no reason you can’t have more than one. With this in mind, here are three of the styles that we think will complete your wardrobe this winter.
Wool coats are great for work and formal events, and they’ll do a good job of keeping you warm too. It’s important to pick on that suits your figure, and belted is often the way to go. This will help you achieve the desirable hourglass figure. You also want to make sure you get something of a good quality. If you scrunch up the fabric for about half a minute, and there are no creases, then you’ve found a well-made garment. Poor quality coats will start to look shabby quickly, and you won’t get as much use out of them.
Winter walks are one of the best seasonal past times, but your wool coat isn’t going to be ideal here. There are a variety of options available. One of the most popular is the puffy jacket, which will keep you nice and warm. To avoid covering up your shape altogether, go for a belt again, or choose a tailored, fitted coat. Barbour jackets have been particularly popular in recent years, and winter 13/14 is no different. You can buy them from e-outdoor.co.uk.
Super warm and super stylish, faux fur isn’t for everyone, but it is a fantastic look if you can pull it off. These jackets are ideal for when you’re out in town or casually going from place to place. As they’re in fashion now, there are plenty of shops where you can buy one from, and they don’t have to cost a fortune either. Real fur is no longer in vogue, so our advice is stick to the fake stuff; it looks just as good, and is much kinder to animals. You don’t need to worry quite as much about the fit when wearing a fur jacket, and you’ll notice that some models wear the straight look.
With three jackets like this, you’ll be prepared for the casual, the formal and the wild. Remember to start looking sooner rather than later, as shops will begin to stock spring clothing sooner than you think.
