Coats To Inspire You This Season

No matter how many coats you have in your wardrobe, it’s difficult not to invest in another when the new-season collections drop. I’ve built up a capsule collection of classic coats – a grey straight-cut masculine coat, a navy double-breasted military-style jacket, an elegant oversized cape, a black fitted leather biker jacket, and a teal single-breasted coat for when I need a pop of colour.

So for AW16, I’m searching for something a little different – a vibrant print maybe, an interesting texture (velvet perhaps?) or a striking silhouette. Here are some inspiring coats from the style setters on the streets of New York.

I adore the earthy maise colour of this stunning?coat, and it’s been styled beautifully with rich burgundy and bold blue. The pink boots add a quirky touch, but this fabulous coat, with its textured trim, would look equally good worn over black or navy.

Shades of blue can balance out the impact of a very vibrant print, as aqua hues?have a more calming effect on the eye than fuchsias or’reds, for instance. Also, they work well with denim, giving the overall?look a more casual feel.

The simple colour-block trims on this coat have real impact. I also love the textured fabric.?This coat can easily be belted to create an alternative look and a fresh silhouette.

If you want a statement coat, this is the one. A double tiered cape in blue with a statement bird print will definitely get you noticed. What I love most is the striking silhouette, which would look?equally’strong in black or grey. It creates just the right kind of theatre for AW16.
