4 Ways to Wear Wrap Coats, Dressed Up or Down

What’s the most timeless and versatile coat style? You probably guessed from the title! Here are just 4 ways to wear wrap coats, but really they will go over almost everything in your wardrobe. From jeans to a ball gown the wrap coat will work the hardest especially if you buy a neutral colour. Your best choices are the classic camel coat or if you have a cool toned skin choose navy, silver or charcoal grey.

For my example I have chosen a classic camel and shown it for casual and smart casual and a more high maintenance – but seriously stylish – ivory for work and evenings.
