These coat styles are hot right now, but they're never out in the cold as far as the fashion elite is concerned. Invest in any, or all if you can.
A DRESS COAT
There's nothing less stylish than a woman elegantly dressed, but covered in goose bumps. An evening coat is an essential element of every woman's wardrobe. Think brocade, embroidered detailing or a fit-and-flare silhouette. They also translate wonderfully for day when worn with skinny jeans and heels.
A pared-back boyish overcoat is the perfect foil to the feminine ru es and embellished detailing we all love to wear in the build-up to the festive season. It makes everything you wear with it feel a little bit more fashion forward. That balance of masculine and feminine is what makes many an outfit great.
