There is nothing better for braving the chill than wrapping up in a warm coat, and now that winter has truly hit the city, a versatile coat is a cold season essential rather than just a style must have.
Long winter coats in lighter hues were all over the runways for fall/winter 14/15 with Burberry Prorsum, Chanel and Chloe showing how the longer length coat can be feminine, stylish and versatile. From oversized to belted and everything in-between, playing with silhouettes, different shades and fabrics has become the look du jour. We predict that this trend will be hot well into 2015. We take our inspirations for how to wear the long coat from fashion bloggers – Sincerely Jules, StylemeGrassi and Brooklyn Blonde
Look for a coat in beige, light pink, white or grey for a lighter take on this trend and if you must go for black, make sure to pair it with lighter or slightly diaphanous pieces. An investment piece if there ever was one, we love how practical and stylish the winter coat is. Wear with a chic pair of leather trousers and a turtle neck sweater for a cosy day time look, or alternatively, throw over a glittery cocktail dress to keep the winter chill at bay on a night out. We have narrowed down a selection of key coats for the season, chosen especially for their stand out colour and versatility. The best part? They make brilliant transitional pieces from winter into the warmer months. Happy shopping!
