Bundle Up in Style

     With the chill on… it’s time to wrap up in some of the season’s hottest coats.  And now that the nights –and days—are colder, it’s time to take a look at some of the styles and colors in outerwear that will have you begging for a frosty day. 

     Try it with ruffles –they add interest and femininity to a jacket or coat. When shopping for the “trend,” keep in mind that ruffles look best when worn at the neck line, framing the face.

     Keep in mind that red is the hottest color of the season, and what better way to wear it than a gorgeous jacket.  Whether you opt for a short burgundy peacoat with oversize buttons or a candy apple knee-length trench, a red coat is sure to become a classic.

     A winter-white coat is like a breath of fresh air.  This crisp color looks best kept simple.  Find one with interesting details such as silver metallic buttons or a bold silk lining.

     This is where we have fun!  Indulge yourself in leather—whether it is thrown over a dress and tights or paired with skinny jeans and boots, a leather jacket is as versatile as it is stylish.  Amelia Earhart- inspired bomber jackets promise to be big.

     If you haven’t noticed by now, faux fur is on everything this fall and winter.  But it looks best on jackets.  Whether you prefer a more subtle approach, such as fur trim, or love the idea of all fur covering you, you’ll look fashion-forward every time you step outside.

      If all else fails, put on a pattern from plaids to houndstooth.  Patterns are a fantastic way to have fun with your outerwear.  A coat also is a great place to introduce some color in your wardrobe.  A figure-flattering tip:  if you’re going for a bold pattern or print, choose a shorter jacket like a peacoat.

     However you choose to wear your coat for the winter season, be sure the arm length is to your wrist bone, and the color is flattering to your skin tone.

     See you in the spring when flowers bloom and coats  “shed” to milder fabrics.
