THE POWER OF THE WINTER COAT
The way a coat is worn can be very powerful. Each strut taken fiercer and fiercer than the one before, one hand in pocket and the other holding your handbag. Perhaps you’re a both-hands-in-pocket person, or a no pockets person. You’re a student, you’re a journalist, you’re a Mum or you’re a shopaholic, whoever you are, everyone needs a powerful, versatile coat that you can wear to death and with absolutely everything.
In June, I will be undertaking an educational experience at a publishing house, smack bang in the coldest part of winter, so obviously I will need THE perfect warm, robust and yet effortlessly stylish coat that will cover my outfit. When it comes to the winter months a personal weakness for myself is finding THE coat that will go with everything, that I will wear everywhere and will void me of ever having to buy another coat again. It’s safe to say that this is an ongoing cycle and even though this year I have found a perfect coat, next year I am certain that I will go through this all again.
However, in 2015, there are 3 purchases that have become staples in my coat collection. All are from tame and affordable clothing stores & boutiques, as I still haven’t worked my way up to the dream coat, the fluffy Ted Baker. This year they are:
– The Cape (Cotton On $72AU)
– The Double Breasted (Forever New $90AU)
– The Trench coat (H&M $99.95AU)
Everyone needs the perfect winter coat and below is an abundance of pieces to inspire and convince how the coat is truly a powerful ally to have in your wardrobe. Considering that 2015’s winter season is expected to be one of Adelaide’s coldest on record, now is the time to purchase, people! Don’t leave it too late!
