When recently perusing the website net-a-porter.com, we came across this fabulous animal print coat and the following quote regarding winter outerwear:
In cold weather, your coat is the most powerful piece that you can show. It’s the first thing that people will see, so it’s important to have a really beautiful one in your wardrobe
Amen to that! It just so happens that today is the first cool day we've had in our neck of the woods for quite some time, so that pearl of wisdom has prompted us to offer some suggestions on the trendiest cold weather cover-ups out there...
For starters, if you're like us and that great designer animal print featured above is slightly out of your price range, why not consider something more reasonable like this leopard print version from Kate Spade at Macy's? It's simple, chic and still offers plenty of animal magnetism!
A softly belted coat is also totally on-trend. This one from Zara, hits several hot spots: belted, oversized, and fringed - a topper trifecta!
Leather is another great option that never goes out of style. This classic notched collar single breasted version from Wilson's will look just as polished with your weekend jeans as your workday clothes!
To really make a statement, consider an oversized plaid. It's definitely the case that "bolder is better" this season, and the hooded version from South Moon Under shown here perfectly illustrates our point!
Bigger is also better when it comes to the latest puffers like this one from Avec Les Filles at Nordstrom. Function meets feminine in this coat with its soft pink tone and bow tie closure.
Of course, if you prefer something a bit more traditional, you can never go wrong choosing tweed. Classicly cut, this Beverly tweed from French Connection elevates any look with an air of subtle sophistication.
That's a wrap on our sneak peak at the newest coat trends that will keep you warm as you stand out in the cold this winter!
