The coat edit
25 May 2022

Keeping warm in style

The temperatures have dropped. This means that the most wonderful time of the year is here – winter clothes shopping time.  

Of all the purchases you can make for winter surely the most important to your style (and your comfort) is a winter coat. For those of us living in cold places there is no need to limit yourself to just one.

No matter where you are though a winter coat is a wardrobe essential.

If this is the year you plan to invest in a winter coat you will find some fabulous options in store. This coat edit is for those you keen on keeping warm in style. The edit considers the options available for three styles the:

  • Trench coat
  • Wool coat
  • Faux fur coat

Trench coat

A trench coat is a wonderful basic to have in your wardrobe. Trench coats can often be worn all year round. Pick one made with Tencel as they tend to be lightweight and crushable. The ultimate luxe version is a leather trench coat. If you are not keen on leather, try a vegan leather version.

If you are petite opt for a short trench and if you are tall take care that it is not too high waisted.

Tie the belt at the back to create an hour glass shape and show off your outfit.

Wool coat

For a functional and stylish option go no further than a wool coat. Wool coats offer durability and wearability. To brighten the gloomiest of days try one that is a bright colour or that has a check pattern.

If you are petite avoid going to oversized. Try a single-breasted three-quarter length style or one that is hip length.

Faux Fur

To be completely snug nothing beats faux fur. You will find a lot of options in store at various price points. It is worth spending a bit more for longevity. Also make sure you take your coat to a reputable dry cleaner to get it cleaned. In Canberrra that is Garran Dry Cleaners at the Garran Shops.

A full-length coat will take you from work to dinner.
