The focus of all wintry fashion trends is definitely the coat. And it’s no wonder, after all, as an outerwear garment – especially if it’s a longer model – it makes up pretty much the entire look. And as it’s never boring in the fashion world and new trends appear on the catwalks every year, we can also look forward to wearing new, sophisticated models this year. I headed over to BIKINI BERLIN to scout out the best winter coats. Here’s a rundown of my favourites…
Personally, I love coats: whether lightweight trench models, fleecy fur or elegant camel – in my opinion, a woman can never have enough coats! But with the huge selection on offer these days, it’s never easy to find the best it-pieces for winter. That’s why I set myself the task of picking out coat styles that are stylish on the one hand, and easy to combine and comfortable to wear on the other. So the coats that I’m presenting to you today not only look good, but they’re also wearable – the perfect companions for frosty days!
Since pretty much every fashionista could be seen donning stylish teddy coats last autumn and winter, this style is riding high in the fashion stakes once again this year. I prefer these styles in warm brown and beige tones that are easy to combine with any outfit. But if you like your coats to be a bit more eye-catching, they are meanwhile also available in all possible colours like pink, yellow or blue. But make sure you opt for faux-fur variations – there’s really no need to be wearing real fur these days!
My firm fashion favourite for the winter: an oversized coat in classic colours. I decided on a grey style from American Vintage, which is not only elegant but also cosy and warm. Next to black, grey is certainly the least conspicuous colour this winter. But that doesn’t necessarily have to mean you look like a grey mouse in it. As a classic all-rounder, coats made of high-quality materials in light to mid-grey tones look great when styled with vibrant scarves in the latest trend colours (I love, for example, pink tones) and are also casual and cool when combined with fashion-forward materials like vinyl and leather.
It won’t come as much of a surprise that the elegant wool coat has also made it into my list. After all, woollen coats are timelessly beautiful and seem to reinvent themselves every season anew. You can always count on the basic cut and the high-quality wool. In terms of colour, wool coats (and me too!) love neutral colours and earthy tones like the Scotch & Soda model in dark green, or also the slightly more striking variation – the striped model from adddress. To give a straight-cut wool coat more of a silhouette, you can tie a belt, a scarf or an on-trend belt bag around the waist. Or simply opt for a model with a tie belt.
