It’s all about the essential wardrobe item this winter, the coat, so keep in style with trend tips from Debbie Norman, manager of BORN Clothing in Newtownsmith – winner of Galway’s Best Fashion Retailer 2010.
There is no doubt about it, camel is everywhere and is definitely this season’s must-have colour. This colour represents elegance, so if you want the sophisticated snug look this season the camel coat is the way to go. This is available in many key shapes such as the pea coat, the classic trench, or, for the more adventurous, the cape.
Get motoring this autumn with the biker jacket — back yet again, and a great way to introduce another key trend; this season’s must have fabric, leather. Whether it is full length coats or aviator jackets, everyone will be channelling their inner Top Gun with leather aviator pieces this season.
For a more casual cosy look this season, the duffle coat will keep you college cool. Team this with earmuffs, skinny jeans, and worker boots to be bang on trend.
It is easy to dress like the stars this season with a faux fur coat, and to avoid feeling bulky team it with black skinny jeans or cinch in your waist with a funky belt.
