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.
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.
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.
