When looking for the perfect winter coat, you should prioritize finding one that not only looks good but is also functional and adaptable in a variety of situations. To help simplify your lives this winter, we have compiled our comprehensive guide to buying a winter coat.
It is essential for us to be warmed up while we are driving to and from work or while we are attempting to overcome the cool outside temperature. It needs to be complementary, but roomy enough to accommodate all of the layers we plan to pile on top of it.
In light of your busy schedule (hustle, hustle, women! ), we’ve compiled a list of the most important factors to think about when shopping for a winter coat.
If it fits perfectly everywhere else but your shoulders and arms, then it’s a no. In this context, coziness is a huge red flag. Always make sure there is plenty of room in the chest when shopping for a winter coat. When trying on winter coats, it’s a good idea to wear a couple of thin layers underneath in the fitting room, or to simply choose a larger size than you normally would.
Be aware of acrylics that pass for fleece. Every name needs to be carefully read. Even if the name is “Fleece,” you should always take a closer, double-take look at the name. This will help while washing (or cleaning) your new coat and also keep you from sweating needlessly in those awful acrylics. Don’t be fooled by brand names or high price points; low-quality materials can be just as culpable as more expensive ones when it comes to losing their original intensity.
While it’s true that we all like to follow the latest trends, picking a winter coat solely because it’s what’s “in” is not the best idea. Check to see if it flatters your figure. If you have a rectangular body type, you should try a long, tailored coast. Invest in a belted coat if your waist is on the small side.
While that vibrant coat might look great with a few pairs of pants in solid colors, it is unlikely to complement every outfit. Locate a winter coat that can be worn in a variety of situations. The most important thing is to make sure it doesn’t clash with anything you already own. You should be able to pair it with a wide variety of outfits and use it for a wide range of occasions.
Yes, most of us always carry a trusty handbag (or five), so you may not see the need for pockets; however, when the temperature drops below 10 degrees, your hands will be grateful that you thought of them. Your lipstick can also be kept there indefinitely.
