Girls, it’s official – it’s cold outside! Still, the trendsetters in the audience won’t give one jot. Why? It’s because your style is essential. Most women want to look the part every time they leave the house, yet winter can wreak havoc. When the snow starts to fall, an outfit without a beanie, scarf and gloves seems a little light. So, is there a way to be stylish and practical at the same time? You bet there is, ladies! For the women who don’t want to freeze to death this November, a statement coat is an answer.
These are the reasons why it is an essential member of the wardrobe and needs to come out of the closet.
Let’s not beat around the bush. If you are a fellow inhabitant of the East Coast, there is going to be snow. Even worse, the snowflakes will form into ice when the mercury drops. In simple terms, an east coaster is going to have to put up with below zero temps this winter. Sadly, you can’t stay in the house and wait for the spring to arrive. You are not a hibernating bear, although it would be nice. So, when you are outside, you need something warm and fuzzy to prevent heat loss. Because statement coats are long and thick, they are hot and toasty. Even when the mercury freezes, it should stop icicles forming on your body!
Statement: You are going to survive the winter.
The worst thing about winter is when you have to buy new clothes. After all, summertime items aren’t wearable in November and December, right? Actually, it is possible to mix and match seasonal pieces with a statement coat. The reason is simple: it’s very flexible. When you wear one of your many floral sundresses underneath, the contrast is amazing. But, it doesn’t stop with dresses because t-shirts are applicable also. Whether it’s a formal or casual look, a statement coat doesn’t discriminate. And, because it’s warm, you can mix and match a variety of summer items.
Statement: The season means nothing to a true fashionista.
It’s Cost Effective
Let’s keep it real – a coat will cost a pretty penny. Now that the autumn and winter fashions are in-store, they won’t be cheap. However, think of a statement jacket as a long-term investment. Unlike everyday items, you will only wear it when the weather’s cold. So, when the sun takes its hat off again, the coat goes back in the wardrobe until the next time. Frankly, it will last a lifetime as long as you treat it with respect. Secondly, a single coat can transform the appeal of every piece of clothing in the closet. With sundresses, sunglasses and T’s all back into the rotation, there is no need to splash the cash. Just wear summer clothes and mix and match them with the coat. Nothing could be as simple or as cost-effective.
Statement: Money and style go hand in hand.
Whether you are a trendsetter or not, you still have to adhere to the basic rules. So, there is no way you can go out in shorts and a t-shirt now the summer is over. The trick is to use summer items as a base to layer an outfit. Therefore, specific seasonal elements are essential to look good and stay warm this winter. Pieces pop into the head straight away, from gloves to ankle boots. A statement coat is the ultimate seasonal wear, though. Because of its length, material, and overall thickness, nothing says winter is coming better than a massive jacket. Well, maybe Jon Stark but no one else! When the seasons change, you have to do the same to keep up with the latest fashions.
Statement: You understand the golden rules of winter fashion.
It’s A Focal Point
As the name suggests, a coat with attitude stands out from the crowd. Fashionistas love this because it helps separate them from the generic people on the high street. An average person may have a coat but it won’t be as outlandish. And, that is an excellent feature of a statement coat because being different helps to create a unique style. Another reason to love the eccentric style of a statement piece is boredom or lack thereof. As you can mix and match and wear light colors in the wintertime, an outfit will never be drab.
Statement: You stand out like a sore thumb and love it!
As you can see, a coat makes a big statement, the main one being you are an innovator.
