Autumn Overcoats

As autumn sets in, the colder weather calls for us to pull out our winter coats to keep us toasty. To help you choose your winter coat that’s on trend this season, we thought we’d highlight a few of the key looks and trends seen on the catwalk.

Military Coats

Again, we can see that this is a popular trend for autumn/winter 2012-13. Double breasted long coats feature heavily in navy, military green and black. The buttons are a key feature too – being large and metallic in colour (gold or silver). Popular fabrics for these coats are in cashmere and moleskin – these are great for overcoats and will keep you particularly warm during the colder months.

A great feature offered at A Suit That Fits for overcoats are the detachable quilted linings – that look and feel very luxurious. This is a great feature, as you can add an extra layer to keep you warm during the colder spells. They also look very stylish and come in variety of bright colours to cheer you up on a cold February day.

Contrasting Collars

Another trend that is set to continue this season, is contrasting collars on overcoats. This featured several times on many designers’ catwalks – here at A Suit That Fits we offer a number of collar options, a particular favourite of the designers this season is velvet. A velvet collar gives the coat a very luxurious look and breaks up the main fabric to give it a stand out appeal.

Knowing the Right Outfit For A Wedding Ceremony

There would come a time that you’ll start to get wedding invitations from your friends or from one of your relatives. There won’t be any problem if you’re part of the entourage because you will be following the couple’s motif but what if you’re just one of the visitors who will just witness the entire event.

For ladies, it would be inappropriate if you’re just going to wear your usual mall-strolling outfit. It is a solemn and formal event so at least wear a dress or one of your Sunday’s best. For the guys, they should avoid wearing jeans, short pants, plain shirts or rubber shoes. You should live up the wedding guest etiquette.

Vera Wang wedding flowers

Some couples are requiring their guests to wear specific outfits and you should not take it for granted. This is going to be a special day for them and it’s about time to follow instructions. Set aside your ultimate center-of-attraction plans because in the first place you ain’t the one getting married. If you really can’t help it, then better not attend the wedding and ruin their special day. They spent a lot of money for the Vera Wang wedding flowers and you will just ruin it because of simply not following easy instructions.

The real challenge comes when there isn’t any specified outfit because you will be having a hard time what to wear. It would be easier for the boys because a black tuxedo partnered with a pair of black slacks will just do. For ladies, at least know the motif and avoid wearing the same shade if you’re not part of the entourage. It’s one way of differentiating yourself. If you want to accessorize with flowers, you may check a florist’s list of flowers to have a glimpse on what’s nice and beautiful.

Another thing to avoid is to wear neon colored dresses or those that are head turners. Aside from the fact that you will be stealing the attention from the marrying couple, you would definitely look stupid. White dresses would be nice but not those white long dresses like the bride’s gown. Have some little accents floral prints or some stripes in it.

You can never go wrong with earth colors or with the pastels. If it’s going to have an evening reception you can opt for long dresses but if it’s going to be a beach wedding or with a summer concept, you may have the body-hugging and above-the-knee length dresses.

Dressing Up Tips for Various Types of Body Figures

Dressing up every day comes with a lot of effort especially when you’re dealing with your body figure. You need to look fabulous all the time and should know how to mix and match so that everything that needs to be hidden would be covered up and those that can be flaunted would show off properly.

Rectangle Shaped – these people are the easiest to dress among the other body figures. However most of them are flat-chested that’s why they need divert everything by flaunting the sexy arms, back or perhaps show off some skin from your flat belly. These can cover up the lack of cleavage.

Inverted Triangle Shaped – they relatively have broad shoulders and they need to soften it up by a perfectly tailored button down shirt with waist definition. Divert everything to the waist. Avoid tight armholes and puffy sleeves because it would make the shoulders broader and heavier.
