Choose the right coat to flatter your figure from the 13 types of coats, find the style that defines you most.
How to Wear Coats for Radical Chic Results
In planning for an outfit, don´t succumb to the mistake that many women are guilty of – thinking about your coat at the very last. Consider it an integrated part of your ensemble, pick your coat first and learn how to style it.
1. Go bright and bold, pick colorful coats
You think that khaki or navy blue would go with more outfits? Wrong! Just how many colored trousers do you have? Or just how much dullness do you need?
Bright and bold colors are the new black when it comes to coats. If you´re a bit uneasy, start by pairing it with neutrals underneath. When you get the grip of wearing more colors, you can be more daring by mixing complementary bright colors.
For your accessories, stick with subdued colors.
2. Go for glamorous evening coats
When you choose your evening gown, you pick the most glamorous of all gowns; why not choose the most glamorous coat then?
Find a coat that is rich in detail and cut from luxe material. It´s guaranteed to make you feel gorgeous every time you slip it on.
If your goal is to match your evening coat with several outfits, find one in a single, rich shade, and then spice it up with bold accessories.
3. Go for tailored coats
One favor you can do yourself is to own at least one highly tailored coat. When paired with high heels and skinny pants, it´s an ultimate attention maker.
Wear it to the office, but don´t be afraid to strut it beyond business functions.
4. Go for emerald coats
An ability that creative fashionistas possess is thinking beyond the unthinkable. When you talk about coats, which color comes to your mind? Not emerald, is it? Of course, it´s not the color you´d think of for an outerwear.
But that´s what makes it daring and so refreshing – wearing a coat in shade that nobody expects you to. Wear it over subdued colors or with earthy hues to let it stand out.
5 Go for the unexpected mix, coats over high-waist flares
Skinny jeans are the trend for how many seasons now, and anytime soon, the trend will go the exact opposite – high waist flares. So why not start trending it early?
Wear your coat over a high-waist with flared bottom. Define your mid-section with a slim belt. The colors are yours to experiment.
I like the red trench and the black tailored coat best!
Same here, Saretta. I´m a big fan of colored trench. 🙂
