For this Tuesday 10 I’m listing 10 coats that are useful additions to your capsule wardrobe. I’m not saying that you need all 10 because it depends on your lifestyle so you can pick and choose which would work for you. The great news though is that you can get some of these for 30% discount until midnight on the 28th of October so if there is something you like grab it now!
Starting with smart or more dressy styles…
Firstly, the classic single breasted style in Camel is a style that will never date so it will work in your wardrobe for many years to come. For that reason choose one in the best quality wool or cashmere you can afford. If your colouring is deep or you have a cool skin tone you may prefer to opt for a navy version. (Included in the promotion)
The bomber jacket has had a resurgence. I have to admit that it’s not a style I have ever particularly been keen on but that was before the latest versions in silk or embellished with embroidery. This jacket would look stunning over a very simple evening dress and high heels.
The shorter wrap coat is perfect if you spend a lot of time in and out of the car or you don’t need a heavier full length style.
The classic long coat is for those days when you will be out in the cold but need to look smart. If you already have a neutral you could add a colour in here. Make it more luxurious with a fur collar or add a beautiful bright scarf in one of your best colours. (Included in the promotion)
Finally in the smart section is the dress coat. These used to be reserved for weddings – especially the mother of the bride – but the stylish woman will throw one over her jeans or leather leggings now too. So if you have a wedding or a winter evening event to attend get value for your money by investing in one of these coats and wear it casually too. (Included in the promotion)
More casual styles include…
The waxed jacket. Choose one that is belted if you have a defined waist or a looser style if you are apple or column shaped. The perfect jacket for those rainy days and useful too if it’s chilly if you choose one with a fur lining. I’ve shown a shorter jacket here but for full protection from the elements the classic Barbour coat can’t be beaten.
Along the same lines is the Parka which have been the casual on trend coat for several seasons. Many of them now have zip out fur linings so that they can be worn for 3 seasons and they are the perfect coat for the school run or Saturday shopping with jeans and boots. (Navy version included in promotion)
Padded or down coats have come off the ski slopes into every day wear. Fillings can be down or polyester, which is a little lighter. This is the coat for those seriously cold days. Choose one with a hood to keep your ears warm too.
Faux fur comes out every winter season but rather than sticking to black or brown why not choose a colour. This grey version looks expensive and luxurious but would look just as good casually as it would over an evening dress.
The leather biker – another one of those timeless classics and again one which now comes in more than just black. Choose one in butter soft leather especially if you are busty as the stiffer leathers won’t work on your curves.
And now for the good news – you can buy the discounted coats with a 30% discount until the 28th of October.
