Sea­son’s coats are su­per cool

Havelock North Village Press - - News -

The coats of the sea­son are ex­tremely var­ied in style, but they all have one thing in com­mon: they make a fab­u­lous state­ment.

If you’re look­ing for a coat that will take you out into the world feel­ing full of con­fi­dence, you’ll be spoilt for choice this win­ter.

Fur is an en­dur­ing fea­ture from the last cou­ple of sea­sons, from full leop­ard faux fur, to de­tailed pan­els. Fur never fails to bring a lux­u­ri­ous feel to a coat and can be dressed down with jeans and boots for a rock’n’roll feel, or taken to the ball over a black tie en­sem­ble.

Trench style coats are also in play and in lighter fab­rics that lend them­selves well to tran­si­tional au­tumn times or milder climes. Some in more lux­u­ri­ous, floaty fab­rics can be cinched at the waist over jeans, or tie the belt at the back over a cock­tail dress when you’re not sure how to get from the car to the bar with ele­gance.

Most prom­i­nent is the slightly manstyle one-but­toned long over­coat, and usu­ally in cash­mere. These coats will never ever date. They are the ul­ti­mate clas­sic and are avail­able in an abun­dance of won­der­ful shades this sea­son— from eye-pop­ping red to the ever-chic camel. Their ver­sa­til­ity is just in­com­pa­ra­ble.

The sub­stan­tial blazer, at three­quar­ter length, cre­ates a su­per cool look, adding at­ti­tude to any out­fit. Again, a good tran­si­tional piece, the blazer style coat is one you’ll reach for again and again.

Find your knit of the sea­son— all lighter and finer in style than pre­vi­ous sea­sons— to go un­der your beau­ti­ful new coat. Merino and cash­mere are a great op­tion for breatha­bil­ity and four-sea­sons- in-one-day sit­u­a­tions.

They reg­u­late with our body tem­per­a­tures to pro­vide warmth when we’re feel­ing cold and to feel cool when you ven­ture in­side.

Take the time to find the right coat that will last the dis­tance and make you feel like amil­lion dol­lars ev­ery time you wear it.
