Why choose this coat for a cruel season?
The temperatures are still ruthless. Snowflakes are falling and the surroundings look like that “Frozen” movie all the kids are so crazy about. It’s time to add a new piece of clothing to your wardrobe: a short coat. It’s practical, stylish and can help you face this cruel season.
But if you have any doubts in terms of choosing this stylish coat, here are some ideas:
A good short coat should be warm, fit you and make you look great. Make sure that you buy a coat that is made of 100% wool, because it will be more durable. Plus, with the quality most wool coats have these days, they are often just as soft as the finest cashmere.
And because the coat does not have an impressive length, make sure it matches perfectly with an oversized sweater. You need to wear it with warm pieces of clothing for a comfortable and warm look – when you are uncomfortable and shivering from the cold, you will look awkward no matter what you’ll wearing. You should always keep in mind that you should NEVER sacrifice comfort and warmth just to look your best!
Here is how you can remain comfortable and warm and still look extremely cool while wearing your short coat:
- Layer your clothes
- Choose winter-appropriate fabrics: wool
- Wear some key winter accessories: a knit scarf, a collar, some gloves, a hat or a beanie.
- Wear the right footwear
Depending on the occasion, you can style your short coat with biker boots (for casual/ urban/ chic outfits), sneakers (for sporty casual outfits), or with formal shoes (for business meetings, parties or other stylish events). And you have a lot more outfit choices. That shirt you wore on it’s own in summer can now be worn in many different ways.
The best thing is that wearing multiple layers will not only make you look sharp, but will keep you warmer than just wearing thick clothes. And if you get too hot, you can just remove a layer to stay comfortable.
Rather than choose a coat that happens to be on trend today, better go for a classic short coat that you can wear for years to come. Opt for a neutral shade that work with fit most of your looks.
