Coats have become a staple for trendy outfits worldwide. Now, as the weather gets colder, having a cute jacket is more important than ever. So, to help you out, I've compiled a list of some of the best styles for you to get your hands on, whether you're looking to focus on style over warmth, or warmth over style! Let's get you fashion week ready this winter!
1. Maxi Coats
Maxi coats....otherwise known as the coats of your parent's generation. This 80s staple is making a comeback in every major fashion hotspot, and investing in these ankle-length coats will keep you both warm and on-trend throughout winter. But, bear in mind, being 'maxi' means that these coats will cover over the vast majority of your look, so adding accessories will be the key to making this look pop.
2. Pea Coats
The classic jacket for both men and ladies alike, the pea coat is designed to keep you warm in style. Falling to just below your hips, pea coats will polish off any outfit, regardless of the season. I would pair this with a pair of blank, fitted pants and a contrastingly colored blouse to make sure you look runway ready!
3. Chesterfield Coats
Long, fitted and slimming, the Chesterfield coat is truly the staple that will never go out of style. They just ooze elegance in every sense, and are perfect for any winter occasion, whether night or day! Over a dress, over jeans and a cute tee, over a skirt and sweater - you name a look, and this coat will complete it perfectly!
4. Cape Coats
We've all seen them on the covers of magazines - and for a good reason, because cape coats are truly the most classically stylish yet effortless coats around. Just like wearing a comfy blanket, the loose, draped fit of these coats will leave you never wanting to wear another coat again. Add a clutch purse, and you'll be runway ready at all times this season!
5. Trench Coats
What kind of fashion article would this be if I didn't include everyone's favorite - the trench coat? Made famous by the likes of Audrey Hepburn (think 'Breakfast a Tiffany's'), if it was up to me, I'd make it a requirement that everyone's wardrobe includes a trench coat, because they are just that good. Lightweight and weatherproof for all occasions, the trench coat can be dressed up or down to your heart's desires, but I can guarantee you will always look stylish when wearing one.
