Baby Its cold Outside! - 7 Coats Trends for Winter 2011/12

Animal Instincts
Wake up the beast within with leopard, zebra or cheetah print trenches and coats.

Style Delights Tip - Even if  your wild streak doesn't run too wide, you can still make the animal prints work - instead of a coat, go with an animal print scarf or gloves. You don't need to roar to be heard!

Military Style
The brass buttons, utilitarian style and a tough yet chic look - Military style coats were a huge trend last winter and they still are marching full speed!

Style Delights Tip - Avoid too much detailing - shoulders loops, big buttons and zips all at the same time may overwhelm the frame.

Pop Of Color 
Wake up and energize a dreary gray winter morning with a bright colorful coat. Who needs spring when we have the colored wool!!

Style Delights Tip - Keep the accessory neutral (duh!)

Coats with Full(er) Skirts
The feminine lines, pleated bottoms and fuller skirts give a polished look to a winter day. Try the cinched waisted coats with belts for a dressier look.

Style Delights Tip - If you've got curvy hips (should we be all so lucky!), try the A line skirt instead of a lot of pleats.

Furs and Shearling
For the chilly winter days, warm up to the rugged yet stylish furs and shearlings.

Style Delights Tip - Be kind to the animals and always get faux furs! Mink is so OVER! It was fashionable hundreds of years ago when we didn't have real fur alternatives and indoor heating, but as we do have both now, cozy up with faux furs!

Leather Trenches 
The same old leather trench gets the makeover with a burst of color. The form fitting soft leather trench can bring instant polish to the look.

Style Delights Tip - Cheap leather takes out all the style of the trench coat. If you want a leather trench, I would advise to go for a good quality leather trench instead of "leatherette", even if it means shelling out little extra.

Capes are not only for the superheroes! Everyday women (who are superheroes in their own right!) can rock the cape coats with style and finesse! I love the comfort and easy of a cape coat.

Style Delights Tip - With the cape style coat, keep your shoes and hair impeccable and polished otherwise you may end up looking frumpy.

  1. I am loving the colour leather coats at the moment, I just wish I could afford one! Grr :(

  2. I hear you!!! Good quality leather trenches are expensive..May be end of season (start of summer next year) clearance will bring the price down a bit!
