As you know I love classics and my cashmere trench coat is not an exception. Any halfway decent coat should keep you warm, but staying warm and stylish simultaneously is a little more complicated.
We had a post about trench coats not too long ago and the one I’m wearing is a warmer winter option. A coat like that will always make you look put together while keeping you warm and cozy at the same time. In my opinion, visual appeal, functionality, and comfort are the most important factors when making a buying decision.
Your ideal investment piece should be a camel or black color coat. Camel color looks very elegant and very Burberry girl! It will look exceptionally well and flattering on girls with warmer natural coloring. And it will work with any wardrobe piece. However, ladies with cooler coloring may want to consider either taupe or black color coats that will better benefit their complexion.
A great quality wool or cashmere coat that will last you years is definitely a must have. Cashmere is more expensive but is also lighter and warmer. Feels more luxurious, too. But if a cashmere coat is a bit out of your price range, a good wool coat would do the trick. I suggest you reserve synthetic coats for making trendy fashion statements but don’t look at them as an investment.
When it comes to style, a trench coat is one of my most favorite pieces. And it’s always so flattering! Right now is really the best time of the year to find your timeless coat at a bargain price (I provided some great coats suggestions in “what I’m wearing section.” Happy coat hunting!
