Womens Winter Coats
"Look Chic this Fall & Winter with the Perfect Coat"
A couple of womens winter coats are a necessity for the time lying ahead of us. The dreaded cold winter months are around the corner and you're in a serious need for a stylish, warm yet comfy coat that will protect you from the nasty cold weather!
If you want to keep your winter-style fun and varied then you need at least 2-3 wool coats cover your needs and major daily activities.
Going to school or work but don't have time to layer with a scarf? Then put on a high collar wool coat. Want to look feminine and classy for a date? Then a belted black trench coat is your best option. Taking a trip to the movies with your friends? A pea coat will cutify your look!
How to Buy a Womens Winter Coat that Fits
Make your first coat purchase a neutral
Like for example: Plaid print screams for attention and requires you to wear simple clothes to avoid overdoing the look. However basic colors act as a neutral that go with everything.
If you've already covered the neutrals then update your coat closet with classic Fall colors like red, deep purple and dark blues. Deep greens are also chic.
Also make sure that the coat you're going to be wearing the most frequently is minimal on details to maintain its versatility.
Look for quality fabric
Most womens winter coats made of wool blends and tweed have an extra durability so that you can wear them for years to come. Silk and cashmere mix is acceptable as well.
The great thing about wool is that
compared to other fabrics it works as an insulator, keeping you warm at all times. The downside is that if it gets really wet then it
will take a long time to dry. So if you live in a wet climate then you should look for water-resistant coats.
Go for knee and thigh length
You might have heard this before but I'm saying it again. Knee to thigh length coats
are versatile and look good on all body shapes. Avoid letting the hem hit your calves as it automatically shortens your frame and make your legs look
stubby (not in a good way). A must-follow for petites and/or if you have full legs
Select a coat that flatters your body shape
This helps balance out your body figure so that you'll always look your best.

If you want something super-warm and sporty then a winter parkas is a good option. However I would stay away from really
puffed up parkas as they make us look like marshmallows. Make sure that you can cinch it in at the waist (like for example a belt) for a feminine silhouette
and modern look.
