Question: What kind of coat should I invest in this season?
Answer: Keep in mind your lifestyle before you make the splurge- are you on the move throughout the day? Do you have a long commute? This will determine the kind of coat to buy. In terms of style, go for drama- either in the colour or details. Vibrant hues with a lot of emphasis on military detailing- oversize gold buttons, epaulettes, wide belts, made a splash on the runway. Other trends to look for? Voluminous collars, nipped waists, full skirts, and details such as pleating, ruching, studding, and texture. Make sure the coat has a warm lining and that it fits properly. Try it on with a middle-weight sweater to ensure a ‘real’ fit.
