It’s that time of year! Bust out your coats, shake them out and put them on. If you still don’t have a coat then we’ve got some here for you. Following the trends from the Fall/Winter 2013 runway , the key to coats is simplicity. Keeping the silhouettes classic and the colors neutral help the coat fit more easily into preexisting wardrobes.
For women, the big trend this season is about boxy, straight silhouettes with a medium or full-length coat. Wool blends will retain heat, have longevity and feel great on the skin. Grays, tints and shades of Bordeaux and blush coats are prominent this winter.
For men, higher collars, parkas and military inspired jackets were popular this season.
There has also been an increase of full length coats for men as well. The silhouettes are classic, box silhouettes with narrow shoulders. As stated earlier, keeping the colors neutral will give more variety as far as pairing the coat with other outfits.
