The coat is probably the hardest item in our wardrobe especially now that there is no more lockdown. Whether we are going out for a grocery run, to office or brunch with friends, the humble coat remains an essential and important part of our style. When you have great outerwear, you can wear it over any simple look like that sweatsuit that you have been wearing all week. The new season is set to usher in a range of outerwear trends that are both functional and trendy. If you want to give your wardrobe a refresh, you can get some inspiration for coats for women to amp things up.
Whether you are fond of an oversized trench, bundle up in faux fur, or strut around with a sleek wool overcoat, your outerwear will define all your outfits this winter season. You need a coat that you can slip on without a second thought, knowing that it will keep you toasty on the frosty mornings, stylish-looking and one that is roomy enough for all those layers of sweaters and scarves. Perhaps you may also want to stuff your mask, gloves and phone in as well.
A well-made puffer jacket is the next best thing to staying all wrapped up in bed on a chilly winter morning. It is thick and padded to keep you toasty, waterproof and shield you from the windchill. Puffer coats are one of the most practical choices and this year, it comes with a more streamlined quilt design which is perfect for layering. The runways at Prada and Bottega have been filled with puffers in saturated shades.
A trench coat is one of the most iconic outerwear in the history of fashion. You really cannot go wrong with a trench coat. From classic beige to khaki green, greys and black, it adds a touch of old-school elegance to any outfit. Though it is neither the thickest nor the warmest coat for winter, it is the perfect one for the autumn season. Great for layering over knits or on chilly mornings.
A shearling coat is a cross between an edgy leather jacket and a cozy fuzzy coat. It offers style and substance, with the best of both worlds. Besides keeping you cozy on your early morning coffee runs, this coat also looks effortlessly stylish, especially when paired with autumn/winter’s essential footwear – the chunky ankle boots.
