Let the “coat’ do the talking

 

Hi ladies

 

First impressions on always count and in Winter why not let your coat do all the talking . ………..Think of your coat as something that compliments your outfit rather than something you take off as you enter the room. Opt for eye catching prints with contrasting colours like this midi length tweed version from River Island. The soft tweed print is really old school but the contemporary design will make you stand out from the crowd. The soft pink underside speaks volumes, wear it hidden or let the reverse side pop out like below. Who can argue with that, two coats in one. Let oversize pockets and lapels make an entrance and keep all the accessories simple.

Thinking of something more classic with confidant tailoring  …. Look at the “trench coat”.  The trench is a perennial staple since it debuted in 1981 with Max Mara. With haute couture and high street reinventing the design your sure to find your personal favourite. The traditional colour  of camel has always been the universal fashionable  colour for every skin colour and to complement any outfit. Then sometimes it’s just the tailoring were after….. This cream version was found in a vintage shop and a bargain to boot at 25 euro with a stunning high street version from Balenziaga “Swing Coat”  or this Ted Baker “deconstructed trench coat”. This the season of the collar , this funnel neck is classy and cozy, two phrases we love to hear. Some versions have an oversize shape or nipped in waist, drop waist with designers also playing around pockets and belts like those seen at .

Or if a coat isn’t an option for you… Why not try a coat dress.  Whether it’s printed, plaid, 3D appliqué or animal skin the dress coat is getting a makeover this season. Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn and 50s heroine with this version from Ted Baker. Why let your dress do all of the work and pair with “timeless heels”  these white kitten heels from Penneys are a must have or the classic Lk Bennett in the “Fern Napa Leather Heel” in “Taupe” will have your eternal love.

on always count and in winter let your coat do all the talking . Think of your coat as something that compliments your outfit rather than something you take off as you enter the room.
