Mother’s advice clearly says, “Don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today“. Even more so if we talk about shopping. Because despite we hold on to the summer – and tan – we still have to deal with the breezy air that relentless blows in the evening and let us regret the jacket we have forgotten at home. Anyway, whether we like or not, the autumn is near and its hints surround us. In this season made of yellow leaves, mid weights, layered looks and big questions in front of the wardrobe, it is possible to make the best purchases to be well prepared for the cold. Because if winter can wait, the coat does not.
Then, let’s give room to the trends of one of the wardrobe’s key-pieces: the coat. The trends are clear: winter 2018/19 wants oversize, wide, colourful coats full of personality and ready to give energy to the wardrobe. But always keeping in mind to protect, like an embrace, from the pitfalls of the cold.
Here is a look at the must-have coats that you cannot resist.
Long and wide
The coat by Tagliatore, close fitting and extra-long. The belt around the waist gives a touch of clinginess and order to the look.
Lighter than a coat, but warmer than a blazer, the cape is a multitasking garment, a wild card that will save your look during the midseason. Fay offers it in total black with the iconic metal hook.
Among the timeless outerwear, there is certainly the camel coat. Venus in Fur proposes it in a wide and long version, with an essential design in order to be worn over both formal suits and casual outfits.
It is true, this may seem off topic, but even the quilted jacket is one of the most fashionable outerwear of this winter season. Ciesse Piumini offers a glossy version, in a vitamin cherry colour with a hood. A quilted jacket with a 100% urban DNA.
1940s short coats, buttoned up to the neck in pastel colours. This is another of the trends for Fall Winter 2018/19 proposed by Lis.Lab, easy to match with both classic and casual looks.
