Huge coats are very much “in” this season, they’re comfy, warm, and stylish. And can be styled over literally any outfit that comes to your mind. Although such a cut might make the figure look bigger sometimes; however, if chosen wisely it may turn the outfit into pure elegance.
I remember reading a fashion book from the 50s, which stated that a woman’s coat is the most important item in her closet. At that time, women used to show off their coat which they purchased from high-end designers. Yes, not bags nor shoes, women at that time used to brag about their expensive classic coats. It was also preferred to purchase the coat in a neutral color, such as black, tan, or light pink; the colors that go with everything. This will guarantee to the ladies that the coat will be worn every day, and its good quality will make it last for years.
Personally I prefer spending my huge bucks on shoes and bags, and stick to medium quality coats. It is unnecessary to buy a $5000 coat and end up wearing it just for a month-or-so per year. As a matter of fact, brands like Zara, Misguided, and Topshop make affordable coats with various designs and great quality. I believe that the smartest thing to do is to purchase affordable coats and leave your savings for good designers’ shoes (I had to mention my obsession) or bags, it is your choice.
