Gone has the season of warmth to the season of keeping warm. And a good quality coat is vital to looking good and stylish as this is the first thing people see. Whether it is a smart or casual coat you will want it to last. Your coat and jackets will be worn a lot over the coming months and you want it to last and not lose shape and go shabby. If you have 3 coats in your wardrobe you will be covered for all occasions – an everyday one a formal one and a parka..

If you have a warm skin tone like Hugh Jackman or Damian Lewis try keeping to warm colours. Your office coat could be brown camel rather than black or grey. It will look far better on you and it will not overpower your colouring and wash you out. A black, grey or navy blue coat looks much better on cool skin people like Robert Downey Junior, Grey or light navy blue coats for Ryan Gosling types. Wearing the right colour tones will add some colour to your face. Let’s face it we all need a bit of help in the winter to create a healthy glow.

Here are a few chosen winter warmers to wear for work or a play.

The Duffle Coat

It is quite apt that duffle coat is on trend this season as we celebrate the of the 1st world war centenary. Duffle coats were very popular among the British navy during that time. It is an easy fit coat, which goes well with a trouser suit or worn casual.

If you are extremely broad or carry weight at the front of your body then maybe go for a simpler thinner  fasten design so as not to bring emphasis to this area e.g Raf Simons. Choose a short version to block this will also help. Keep the fabric plain.

Double-Breasted Overcoat

Double breasted coats are the perfect neat coat for your wardrobe. It is sleak, classic and looks great worn with a suit. It will protect your suit from harsh weather and keep you warm. Ideally it should finish between either at mid thigh or an inch above the knee  depending on the style. There are lots of gorgeous colours to choose from this season.
Make sure your overcoat fits well and is agood quality, this is the item which is worth spending little more money on.

Parka Jacket

So it’s a cold weekend and all you want to do is to feel comfy, warm and look cool.  The good news is the Parka is still on trend. So if you haven’t bought one yet them maybe its time to think about it. This autumn/winter, functional clothing has never been cooler. They are more slimline than other quilted coats so you have less chance of looking like a marshmallow. It is a sporty look but it can look great with a suit if you you know what you are doing. If you don’t know what you are doing perhaps its a good time to book a Stylebug stylist to help you.
