What does your coat say about YOU?


What’s your poison? In coats silly…we all have fashionable taste in our everyday attire, but what do you wear to accessorize and bundle up? The newest trends for the fall and winter 2011 season have been long set and now it’s time to make room for your coats in your wardrobe. Coats are definite the detail that will make all the difference this season as they are the most ‘out there’ piece of your outfit, so if you want to look uber-trendy make sure the following 2011-2012 Winter Coat that rock don’t miss from your wardrobe.

For many women, and men, our coats are a very large accessory and they are not to be taken lightly…In fact, your jacket says a lot about you who are, and what you like, both in style, class and sophistication. I happen to L-O-V-E my Michael Kors Double-breasted Houndstooth Coat. What you wear not only makes a fashion statement, rather it tells a story. How you dress says ‘this is me!’ It serves as a ‘trademark’ so to speak, and it expresses your vibrant basis for wanting to look simply smashing! I adore Michael Kors coats, and handbags, ….I even have a favorite ‘little black dress’ that is a product of Michael Kors. Regardless of who makes the coat, it’s how it looks and feels on you that assists you in choosing. It’s sort of like having an acquired taste. My kids and I love fashion. I happen to wear a lot of Michael Kors, www.mickaelkors.com and love my houndstooth coat which btw is vintage. My daughter on the other hand is a very big fan of Burberry, www.burberry.com  and loves her black quilted trench coat. Currently she lives in Houston Texas and although it stay warm there throughout the year, she finds a few weeks in their winter months to go stylish with her savvy jacket!  My son, an avid fan of Club Monaco, www.clubmonaco.com. Their fall and winter jackets and accessories this season are hot!

Find a coat based on not only its looks, rather how well it looks on YOU! What might look great on me might not look so well on you,…then what looks fabulous on YOU, might look awful on me. I have thighs and a big tush, therefore, I like a jacket that comes to my thighs or a little lower (somewhere between my knees and my thighs) and MUST cover the ass. Remember, fashion is about style, and how you look and feel. You don’t need to wear a big designer name to feel fashionable and get noticed. I have my winter coats that range anywhere from H&M www.hm.com $69.95 to Burberry and Michael Kors at $995. Keep in mind, wear a nice scarf that is stylish, and make sure that your boots or shoes compliment your jacket! You want to be noticed from head to toe!

  • Consider the weather in your area. If you live in an area that reaches sub-zero temperatures and has abundant snowfall you will need a coat that is well insulated and that is water-resistant. Forget about the cute little suede jackets that are designed for style and not warmth. These simply aren’t suitable as winter jackets in your area.

  • Purchase a coat that fits you well. Try it on and take a good look in the mirror. Be sure to view yourself from all angles. Raise your arms to see how it will look when you are active. If it pulls up and exposes your clothing, it won’t provide you with protection from the elements, unless you intend to stand around and look pretty all day. Don’t be afraid to try a larger, or smaller, size that you normally wear to see how it looks.
  •  

    Consider what you will be wearing under this coat. If you intend to wear heavy sweaters during the winter, allow room for this.

  •  

    Choose a color that complements your coloring and hair. Shocking pink may be all the rage, but if it makes you look pale and sickly, it’s not for you. Consider how well the jacket’s color and style will go with your usual attire. If you wear a lot of bright and patterned clothing, you may want a solid color for a jacket

According to a recent poll; The Top 5 Winter Coats:

  1.  

    Pea coats: Pea coats are versatile winter coats. They can be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for a casual day at work, school or running around town. If you’re looking for a casual coat that still looks sharp, you can’t go wrong with a sophisticated black or navy pea coat. If you’re interested in making a bold statement, you’ll be glad to see that pea coats are available in many different colors and patterns.

  2.  

    Trench coats: A classic women’s coat, trench coats are now available in more colors and fabrics than ever before. You can’t go wrong with a traditional black or khaki trench coat when you want a chic look, but you could also add some excitement to your wardrobe with a red or fuchsia trench coat.

  3.  

    Fashion coats: Are you thinking about something a bit more glamorous? Pay attention to the details and you’ll find a fashion coat that will give you the flair you want. Try luxurious fabrics, like faux fur or something with a metallic finish. Fun details — bold buttons, ruffled necklines, decorative zippers and belts — make all the difference and will really make heads turn.

  4.  

     Leather coats can be edgy — think motorcycle-inspired leather jackets that fit close to your body — or they can be classic — like a long leather topper. Whichever style you choose, you can rest assured that a leather coat will be extremely durable and a lot of fun.

  5.  

    Down coats are sure to keep you warm during the cold winter months. Many down coats are available with hoods, adding an extra bit of warmth. For comfort and warmth with a sporty attitude, down coats are the perfect women’s coats.

 Remember, it’s not about what you pay for the attire, it’s how you wear it with confidence that keeps you warm, toasty and smiling!
