Fall2013, Year of the Coat

winter-style-for-men-2013One word for those who want to be fashionable this fall  – coat. No matter the style, the length, the shape or fit, ask yourself, which coats will you add to your closet?  Here are your choices!

Trench style – The trench always has and always will be a classic. Colours include traditional khaki and beige as well as bright solid shades, often with contrasting sleeves and collars. Good to know that the belt on a trench gives everyone who wears one a nice hourglass shape!

Military Style – If you’re looking for a shorter option, the military jacket is a great choice for fall. It also works well with casual outfits, pairing perfectly with jeans. Comes in all colours and of course, leather.

Loose and Baggy (women only) – The runways for fall were full of long, loose coats. This style is usually buttonless and may reach as low as your knees. Works best if you are tall, at least 5 foot 6 inches.

Coloured Wool – Tired of that old black coat? Brighten up your wardrobe with a coloured coat that cheers you up while it keeps you warm. Fall colours include cobalt blue, moss green, orange, red, moss, all shades of grey, black, white and pink!

Colour Blocking – The colour blocking trend that pairs up no more than 2 or 3 blocks of colour per piece is making an appearance on coats this season. Colour blocking gives you a coat with visual interest, but without a pattern that will go out of style.

Short with details – Short wool coats are in all the stores this fall, many with faux fur or leather details. Look for zippers placed just off to the side, as well as zipper details on cuffs and collars.

Moto Jackets – The biker jacket for men and women is probably the statement jacket of the season! Often referred to as Moto jackets, these practical and fashionable choices come in leather of all colours, as well as wool and blends.

Cocoon Coat – Inspired by blankets that keep you warm at an outside football stadium, the cozy and stylish cocoon coat is meant for casual weekend strolls through your favourite neighbourhood or a short fall hike.

Boucle Tweed – Perfect for a night out or as a workwear option, nothing says fall like this tweed boucle. Pair easily with jeans, the colours in the fabric go with any colour. Look for details like fringes down the front, zippers and leather.
