From bold prints to classic cuts, we have been spoilt this season with options for our staple winter coats. We all rely on our coats to get us through the frost, snow, wind and rain that winter brings, but practicality doesn’t have to mean plain and boring. The runways have been rife with stunning statement pieces that have got all stylists in a spin. Here are 3 top tips for styling your winter coat this season.
No matter what your dress sense, there are accessories to suit every style this season.
If you prefer a more reserved look and usually opt for classic coats such as the timeless trench, pair it with a stylish designer bag to ooze elegance. In the daytime, opt for a tote bag as they are ideal for throwing everything into whilst running errands! In the evening, style your winter coat with a classic clutch.
If your go-to is a staple denim or leather jacket, accessorize with bright and bold beanie hats and scarves. The pom beanie is everywhere this season, and there is a huge range of colours and knits to suit everyone. Not only will they keep you warm, but they will also keep you on trend too!
- Be Bold
Prints have made a huge comeback this season. Leopard, zebra, tiger and snake prints have been spotted across the runways. The bolder the better. Yes, for some, it can feel like a tricky task to keep print tasteful not tacky. But don’t be afraid as there are so many ways of incorporating prints into your winter coat style!
If you want to play with this trend without going head to toe in print, style a classic coat with print accessories. This can be anything from sunglasses, hats, bags, scarves and shoes. This season, you are guaranteed to find pretty much anything in animal print.
If you want to make a statement, why not opt for an animal print coat? Victoria Beckham’s AW18 collection championed a fitted leopard print chenille coat and it is simply stunning! There are so many to choose from to suit any budget. Happy shopping!
- Switch it Up
The winter season is long. We wear our coats every day, and it’s easy to feel like we are in a rut, chucking the same coat on every morning as we are rushing out of the house.
There are ways to switch up your staple coat to create a different look for any occasion. Why not grab a belt from your wardrobe and tie it round the waist? It will completely change the look of your coat, synch you in at the waist and give you an effortlessly feminine silhouette.
Or why not flash some flesh by rolling up the sleeves and showing off your favourite statement jewellery or watch.
No matter what your style, there are so many wonderful winter trends to try this season.
