With the dark, chilly days of winter fast approaching, getting a new coat is one of the little pleasures we get from this otherwise slightly gloomy season! Whatever size and shape you are, here at Littlewoods we’ve got the perfect coat to suit you – especially with some of the lovely pieces from our So Fabulous collection.
A classic coat that will always look stylish and flatters nearly all body types is the camel coat. Our So Fabulous Belted Camel Coat features a host of details to make the most of your figure, including a woven belt that draws attention to your waist. The large, open lapels help balance out your figure if you’re a little bottom heavy, while the cut-away front divides your silhouette up – as well as looking incredibly contemporary. The buttery camel colour has been popular for several seasons, and as a warm neutral will work with all sorts of clothing: we particularly love it when worn with a smart trouser suit and platform heels for the office.
Another classic look is the trench coat, a style that never seems to go out of fashion. Opt for a traditional beige or stone colour, like our So Fabulous Piped Trench Coat. Trenches should include some key details for keeping with the classic style: double breasted fastenings with two rows of buttons, a large collar, and a tie belt. Our So Fabulous coat includes all of these and some sweet piped details around the pockets and cuffs. Tie the belt loosely around your waist to accentuate your shape, and roll the cuffs up to wear with long gloves for a contemporary look. The trench coat looks great over either a casual outfit, or for night time glam wear a sparkly cocktail dress underneath to contrast with the sophisticated, pared-down trench coat.
For a more casual look, our So Fabulous Duffle Melton Coat is ideal. Duffle coats have seen a bit of a resurgence, especially with trend-setting fashionistas, due to their combination of practicality and naïve charm. The navy blue colour is flattering and a little different from your regular black, plus it always looks good with denim, wools and even tweed. Classic duffle details like wooden toggles, large collar and front pockets add cute touches: pair this coat with jeans and a simple tee, or a denim skirt and chunky Aran jumper for winter walks. The thick polyester-mix fabric is warm and comfortable, so ideal for this season that looks set to be a chilly one.
One coat that’s been seen on several catwalks this season is the parka. Avoid very bulky styles and instead go for one like our So Fabulous Fur Hooded Parka or the So Fabulous Parka Jacket. Both have drawstring waists to accentuate your shape, with flat pockets that are practical without adding bulk. The Fur Hooded Parka has a beautiful fur-trimmed hood, while the Parka Jacket has a modern funnel neck. Whichever you choose, keep your look smart for work and play by pairing it with fitted jeans or a tailored dress and statement shoes, and accessorise with some bold jewellery – as seen on this season’s catwalks.
