Winter Coat Trends For AW16
Winter coats, yes it is that time of year again and oh my gosh, how cold has it gotten in the past few days? With the cold snap setting in, it really got me thinking about my new winter coat for this season, but with so many trends out there which ones should we be going for in order to look super stylish when stepping out during the cold winter months?
Here is a roundup of 10 that you should be looking at.
Winter Coat Trend 1: Military
Military trend has not only being on the AW16 runways it has also been seen on the streets and is one look that really does escalate your look. Go for pieces that create a sharp shouldered look with epaulettes typical seen on military coats/jackets and piped edges which give a fresh feel to this trend. The high street have gone for this trend in a big way so you are bound to find one out there that suits your body shape.

CASH: River Island, Oasis and V by Very
Winter Coat Trend 2: The Leopard Print
The Leopard print coat is quite a controversial one as it has had some bad history that had deemed it to be considered trashy, I mean just think about Bet Lynch (Coronation Street) or Pat Butcher (Eastenders) but over the years it has also been worn by Princesses…Princess Grace of Monaco to be exact and film stars like Sophia Loren and Elizabeth Taylor. This season this coat is back with the added power of making you look super chic!

Winter Coat Trend 3: Shearling
This 70’s luxurious, soft winter coat is a classic and has made a comeback this season, because of it’s fluffy inside it is bound to keep you warm and cosy on them extra cold days. This trend was seen on the AW16 runway shows but don’t worry if your cash doesn’t stretch that far as the high street have got it covered too.

Winter Coat Trend 4: Checked
Fashion has gone crazy over checks from Prince of Wales to houndstooth, plaid to tartan, checks are one trend that you should be rocking this AW16 season. This trend is my personal favourite as I love traditional checks, but also with bright and bold ones about on the high street you are bound to find one that suits your personal style.
