Especially during the winter time, the coat really makes the outfit. There are some important things to look for when shopping for the right coat:
- overall shape/structure: Is it flattering? For a petite girl like me, the high waistline elongages my body rather than making the coat look like a drape on me!
- details details details: The difference between a generic coat and a unique, timeless piece is in the details. It may be the buttons that elevates the look, or the well-defined lines around the shoulders and back of the coat. In this case, I love the frilly detailing in the back of the coat and the cute buttons.
- beyond black: Try a different colour other than black. Black goes with everything but so does grey and camel. I like this camel colour because it is a warmer tone and serves as a nice base for building outfits. Deep maroons and pastels are also gaining their popularity!
