Choosing A Winter Coat

When buying a winter coat you should buy the best you can afford – and it should match your lifestyle and the rest of your wardrobe outfits. It will probably be the most expensive item you purchase for winter and should last you a few years especially if you choose a quality fabric. Not only should it look good – it should also keep you warm.

Wool and cashmere are natural materials and great options for your winter coat. Cashmere is much more costly. Another point to take into consideration is the fit and size. Make sure that there is enough room in the sleeves for layering jumpers or blazers.

There are so many stylish options to choose from – whether it be chic, casual or classic.

    Choosing the perfect winter coat is always so difficult. I try to a neutral one that would go with all of my outfits or something bold that would stand out. Wishing you a great weekend! xx

    When it comes to buying coats I would definitely say its a huge investment on my part because I try to buy a quality piece that I can wear over and over again without it wearing out easily. Speaking of which, I love your coat.x

    I always have a hard time finding the perfect coat. I need one this year, my older wool one is to old now. I love a wool coat. Yours is perfect, how can it not be, being a Stella!
