How to choose the perfect coat
A great winter coat is an investment piece, so there are several things to consider before making your purchase. While you want your coat to make a style statement and instantly smarten any outfit you also need to ensure it is practical, versatile and fits into your daily routine.
The most flattering coat is a simple, single breasted figure skimming shape with an open collar that finishes just on the knee. Sophisticated and timeless this style flatters any figure – perfect.
A coat for every occasion
Finding a coat that can seamlessly shift from day-to-night can be tricky. A clean, simple cut in a block colour is the key to ensuring your coat is completely versatile. Choose a shade that will that works with your day-to-day wardrobe but don’t be afraid to experiment with different fabrics. Consider the length - a three-quarter length works with most dresses and skirts as well as your favourite jeans.
The perfect coat should slip instantly into your everyday routine. If you walk a lot you may benefit from a knee-length coat that won’t drag along the floor, but if you spend a lot of time driving a mid-thigh length ensures you won’t get tangled climbing in and out of the car.
Whatever your style the perfect coat should make you look and feel great. What do you look for in the perfect winter coat?
