The Trend Edit: Winter Coats
Posted on 20 December 2016
During this time of year, a winter coat is a wardrobe must have to keep you warm as temperatures plummet! But, this doesn’t mean it can’t be stylish. We’ve rounded up some of the biggest coat trends from the Autumn Winter 2016 catwalks to help you fall in love with the perfect coat for you.
Velvet was the mainstay of many a collection on the A/W catwalks.
From mini dresses to ankle boots, but the most exciting interpretation of this trend is definitely the velvet coat. They were sexy and three dimensional at Preen, ladylike at Prada and darkly alluring at Dries Van Noten.
From street style to fashion bloggers and fashion week; the Shearling coat has been back in a huge way this season!
Influencers have been styling theirs with skinny jeans and ankle boots, or going with a statement-making ’70s-inspired combination - pairing their coat with flared jeans, paisley prints and oversized sunglasses.
Burberry are, of course, the first name on everyone’s lips when discussing trench coats – especially their iconic design: The Heritage Style Mac. However, in recent seasons they have expanded their collection to include brighter colours, metallics, patchwork details, tasseled and ombre dyes.
If you’ve got your eye on a trench, you’re guaranteed to find one that fits your style.
The Military has been influencing fashion for decades but when Yves Saint Laurent introduced his iconic Saharienne jacket, the industry really took notice, and this season has been no exception.
With practical oversized pockets and statement gold buttons, designers such as Prada, Miu Miu, DSquared2 and Burberry have crafted the perfect modern interpretation of orthodox military design. Duty calls!
The SARAH BOND Bo Bardi Coat (available in Navy/Pink and Black) is inspired by Brazilian/Italian architect Lina Bo Bardi’s expressive use of lines and colour. Nipped in at the waist and flared out over the hips for a flattering silhouette, with contrasting fabric panels. The dramatically textured collar adds a strong effect.
Old English heritage looks were updated this season via unexpected silhouettes and details. At Vetements, Prince of Wales check got a school girl makeover, teaming oversized coats with knee high socks; meanwhile tweeds were stitched with lurex to give Simone Rocha's collection a precious sheen. Isabel Marant styled her tweed pieces with 60s-mod inspired leopard print creepers and pleather!
