Into the woods with my cozy winter coat

I know, the dreaded cold winter months are around the corner and you’re in a serious need for a stylish, warm yet cozy winter coat that will protect you from the nasty cold weather! 

Even in Gran Canaria the warmer months are gone. Last weekend I was in the woods for a little hangout. Can say, I was very happy that I have already my new coat. 

Get inspired by my current outfit pics rocking the chicest and cozy winter coat below:

Don’t hesitate to grab a cozy one as well. 

But before you start shopping, here are a couple tips to help you get started: 

How to buy a cozy winter coat that fits?

 Make your first coat purchase a neutral

Secure a classic winter coat in a neutral color such as black, brown, cream, beige gray as they’ll blend well with all of your outfit combinations. 

Also make sure that the coat you’re going to be wearing the most frequently is minimal on details to maintain its versatility.

 Look for quality fabric

Most womens winter coats made of wool blends and tweed have an extra durability so that you can wear them for years to come. Silk and cashmere mix is acceptable as well.

 Select a coat that flatters your body shape

This helps balance out your body figure so that you’ll always look your best. 

 

 

Here are some basic guidelines on how it works:

  • Inverted triangle ∇ body shape (heavy or wide upper body) look good in A-line coats or anything that flares out at the hemline. Stay away from heavy details on top (eg. double-breast with contrasting buttons) to avoid looking heavier.

  • A body shape Δ (body shape with wide hips and butt) look best in coats that are details-rich on top to distract the eye from your curves. Think wide collars and shoulder flaps.

  • Rectangle Η body shape (little to no waist definition) look best in coats that flare at the bottom and have details on top to add dimensions to your straight frame.

  • Hourglass Χ body shape is quite an ideal and proportional figure. I would personally define your womanly waist with a belted coat. If you’re not too happy about your curves then you can never go wrong with a black A-line coat. The extra flare automatically skims over the hips.
