Autumn is upon us and winter isn’t far off, so if you haven’t already updated your winter wardrobe then now is most definitely the time. Winter clothing is important in both a practical and fashionable sense – whilst you want to be up to date on the latest trends, you also need to make sure that you keep warm and comfortable in one of the harshest seasons of the year. The best winter fashion incorporates both of these essential requirements. The most important item in your wardrobe this (and any) winter is your winter coat, and there are several major trends to choose from.
The leather jacket has made a major comeback in 2011, and that’s the first of your winter options. Whilst a leather jacket may seem unsuitable for winter, these jackets are warmer than you think and will keep you cosy when the temperature drops. However, leather jackets only look good in short lengths – if you want a longer coat, you’re better off picking a different style.
Trench coats are a sensible winter style. When we say trench coats we don’t mean floor length, Matrix-esque pieces – most women’s trench coats are about knee-length with buttons and a belt around the waist. These stylish coats come in a variety of different fabrics and colours so there are lots to choose from, and you can find one perfect for your particular style.
Finally, military style coats and jackets have been consistently popular over the past few winters and this has yet to change. Double breasted jackets with metallic, round buttons are a key aspect of the military style. In a practical sense, they are also usually made of thick yet versatile fabric that insulates well and will keep your body warm.
All these winter trends and many more are available in the womens coats range online at www.ellos.co.uk. As a Scandinavian retailer, Ellos fashion is extremely suitable for cold weather whilst maintaining a sense of simple yet sophisticated style. You don’t have to pick just one of these winter coat trends – you can mix and match to make sure that you have a jacket or coat for every occasion.
