Coats are one of the most expensive winter and fall investments for your wardrobe and you would like to buy the right kind of coats
that will not only flatter your beauty, but also be right for the occasion. And yes, you will need some different coats for different occasions.
Here are some tips that will guide you to choose perfect coats for yourself.
I. Everyday Coat
If you live in very cold climate, then you will require coats that you have to use everyday. Your everyday coat needs to be versatile
so that you can wear them with your every day outfits. Decide if you want a casual or a dressy everyday coat depending on your schedule.
• Leather Coats: Leather coats are perfect for everyday wear. They are durable
and versatile enough to go with your everyday wear. Go for a close-fit long leather
coat, but remember that your coat needs to have enough space for layers of inner
clothing. If you want to have fun with your leather coat, then go for distressed
leather coats, which will give you a rugged and tough look.
• Wool Coats: Wool coats are another good option for everyday wear as they are
warm, durable, and donít absorb moisture very quickly. Wool coats come in
different styles and colors and you can have your pick. A neutral colored coat will
go well with all the different colored clothes in your wardrobe. If you wear a lot of
neutral colored dresses, then go for a bright colored woolen coat, like red, yellow,
etc. This will add that punch and brightness required during those cold months.
II. Evening Coat
I am sure you would not like to wear your everyday coat for your evenings. So you would require a coat to dazzle up your evenings and
add glamour to your evening outfit and at the same time keep you warm. Buying any of the below can be a good idea.
• Faux Fur Coats: These coats are a good choice if you want to give a classic
look. With its soft and luxurious feel, these coats add glamour to your outfit.
• Wool Blended Coats: Wool coats also give a very classy look. As they come in
long length style, they are perfect to wear on dresses. To add to the glamour of
your wool coat, look for cashmere blended ones.
III. Weekend Coats
Reserve a winter coat for your weekends, when you are running errands, or relaxing with your friends and family. For weekends, you
would require a coat which is comfortable as well as goes with your weekend attire.
• Shearling and Suede Coats: Suede coats are perfect for those weekends
where you need to look a little dressed up and at the same time give a casual
look. But remember that water is harmful for suede coats as they leave stains. So
avoid wearing them in rain and snow.
