The air has become nippy these past few days and it made me think about winter coats. They are a more expensive item in your wardrobe, so if this year is a year you’re planning on updating your winter coat wardrobe here are a few tips to help you choose a flattering style. Here are my tips on buying a winter coat so you get the best value from this investment.
Scale of Collars and Lapels
Single or Double Breasted
Length of Your Coat
Such great simole tips! Thank you. Even though our winter in NY has just ended, it is a great time to buy sale coats and I’ll have your tips in mind.
Thank you, thank you, I love getting all these useful tips!! There’s one thing, however… I’d (also) love some ideas on how to dress when having a small head (and a small face to go with it). Personally I’m somewhere around X or I in shape, but I suspect this situation might occur regardless. I’ve learned by trial and error to be careful about details much wider than my head (neckline, lapels, bulky scarf, oversized pattern/print..) but, well… Pretty please??
I’ve noticed, btw, that your head seems bigger after the breast reduction, the attention goes straight to your face 🙂 Wishes from Sweden of a speedy recovery – for a beautiful body and soul!
If you have a small head, you want to keep the scale of collars and patterns and jewellery smaller so that it doesn’t overwhelm your head. Bigger hair can also help!
Hi Imogen, you read my mind. I have been thinking about how to look stylish and yet be warm. I find waterfall jackets great, but they look terrible poking out the bottom of a coat. Any ideas on where to shop for longer style coats in Melbourne / Mornington Peninsula?
Hi Ro, Yes you want a knee length jacket (plus they keep you warmer). You can check out places like Myer and David Jones http://bit.ly/29k9foK you can check their range out online (or even shop online). Stores like Very Very http://www.veryvery.com.au/veryvery/photos-dark1.html also do a few nice coats and I’d also check out stores such as David Lawrence, Veronika Maine, Cue, Trenery who all would do a coat or two each winter.
Thanks Imogen, Great suggestions. A good coat should last a few seasons so I want to get it right.
