A great coat is a must this Christmas season to take you from church to friends to family to town. Invest in a gorgeous, timeless, coat to last you for many Christmasses to come.
The good news is you can invest in a coat and wear it over and over again. Cuts and styles are made to last and to be versatile enough to wear them to work, or for more casual wear.
Tailoring and fur were a big story on the catwalk this winter for labels such as Gucci, Jaeger, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Why not combine the two trends onto one coat — with lean tailored silhouettes and fur details it makes it the perfect stylish winter warmer. Pick yours at Standún Boutique, stocking long and short jackets and coats by Easy Comfort, perfect worn open over your dress on Christmas Day.
For something more laid back a blanket coat, cape, or knitted shawl make a great layering option. A timeless choice is this gorgeous camel cape by Phase Eight. River Island is also stocking interesting ponchos and knitted shawls with fringe details, or coloured patterns.
Don’t be afraid to go for colours such as red, orange, and aqua blue. This cute orange number for Zara is a great choice and can be worn with everything. Add leather gloves and a brooch for a stylish finishing touch.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish to all readers and styles lovers a very merry Christmas and happy holidays. I look forward to writing more style stories and offering you my best advice in 2012.
