2018 Best Winter Coats for Women




As the fall season rolls in, we are once again, invited to wrap up in a coat. Autumn’s outerwear
dress code however, is undeniably exciting. One can switch from modern to contemporary, leather to
faux fur, as well as a riot of hues to liven up the nippy weather. Whether for unseasonably balmier
days, or for when snow is expected in the forecast, these pieces will keep your coat-game strong
–because no matter what the elements are, one must commit to a good outfit moment.




Classic Coats

Whether oversized or sculpted, the season’s love affair with classic tweeds and heritage weaves
continues –all reimagined with modern sensibilities, of course. Trench coats with clean cuts and
precision tailoring will always look sleek and polished. And standing the test of time, the
double-breasted pea coat is a wardrobe staple that creates sophisticated, put-together looks. Wear
these day-to-night toppers over tights and a tee, or over a knee-length dress.





Leather Coats

Only a leather coat can exude a woman who is fierce and fearless, with a saucy wardrobe to
match. There is no such thing as canceling plans, because this piece that defines bold and swagger
will make you reconsider. It’s a topper that signals lots of action, mystery and adventure for its
wearer. The slick and streamline jacket can be worn with almost anything –from distressed denim and
sneakers, to a chic and cozy turtleneck sweater and jeans combo. And for cool weather power
dressing, team the trench with a pair of fluid, floor-length wide pants.

Fur Coats

As temperatures drop, look for cozy shearling or faux fur for your sartorial second skin –and the
more textures you can work together, the better. This fashionable fluff topper is an arresting way
to turn any classic jacket into an eye-catching cool weather element. A fur coat in red is all you
need to be party-ready –no matter how basic the rest of the ensemble is. Any chubby, fur coat will
also make a plain tee and leggings combo look more pulled together. And for chilly nights out, wear
it over a slip dress, coupled with a statement necklace and heels.






Trench Coats

The trench coat has staked its claim as the coat trend of the season. It proves its versatility with a
variety of colors ranging from tan, to olive green, to bright orange and details ranging from belted, to
double breasted buttons and military inspired. A double breasted trench draping the shoulders adds a
cool edge to a menswear inspired pant suit. The neutral color of a traditional, tan colored trench coat
creates the perfect canvas for adding a pop of color and accessorizing with bright red boots. A military
inspired trench worn over a full floral skirt creates a strong, yet feminine look.

Bright Colors

Coats are the main attraction this season and can be seen in a variety of styles and silhouettes. Their one
common denominator is color. The color palettes run the gamut from muted, ultra-feminine, delicate blush
hues, to richly saturated pigments of turquoise, vibrant yellow and fire engine red. Create maximum style
impact by wearing vivid colored coats open and pairing with an equally vibrant ensemble. For a more subtle
effect, pair soft, dusky pink coats with jeans and ladylike, delicate lace tops.
