Winter coats are so important because you wear them everyday… for months. The right winter coat will make you feel happy when you throw it on and walk outside, no matter the weather. You will likely get a ton of compliments and positive attention when you wear it, too.
If you’re ready to venture away from your basic black coats (even in the tiniest way) these ideas will help lead you in a direction that feels right for you.
Navy Dress Coat
A navy dress coat is an easy first step away from basic black coats and so much more flattering for most complexions.
Bright-coloured outerwear is so unexpected in the winter that it stops people in their tracks. Admittedly a big jump away from basic black coats, if you have the nerve to make this leap you will not only bring joy to yourself, but to others around you.
Although black puffers are probably the easiest to find, a golden one is a nice choice for women with warm colouring. Or if you’re worried about stains, you could look for a navy version of this, too.
Wrap Yourself in Red
A wrap coat is a beautiful choice for women who love a feminine look. Red pops in a sea of black and gray, so expect a red coat to get you noticed!
Even though we recently mentioned a pattern coat, it’s worth mentioning again. There are so many patterns out there this year, there’s bound to be one to suit your own personal style.
Your Favourite Colour
Okay, so if a bright colour gives you the heebie-jeebies and you’re not a fan of red, what is your favourite colour? Since neither black ‘nor gray are actually colours (they’re shades), stretch yourself to come up with something other than those. A coat in your absolute fave colour is sure to make you feel happy!
If you find yourself really resisting venturing away from basic black coats then maybe black is for you, which is totally cool! To switch things up a bit, look for a black coat with some interesting details. Perhaps a shawl collar or some ruffles or boiled wool or a poofy skirt or edgy zippers will make you feel happy?
