4 coat styles to inspire your winter investment buy
Right now, all over Australia, men and women are slowly morphing into their winter look. Every day, there's a new scarf, an extra layer or a warmer pair of shoes making an appearance. Weekends are being spent resurrecting old jackets from the back of the wardrobe. And we're all clearing space for The New Coat that's going to carry us through the chilly months.
If you're looking for inspiration on which coat to invest in this year, look no further than these four huge trends. They'll keep you toasty warm during cold days and nights, but more importantly, they'll make your outfit - rather than cover it up.
Did someone say... extra? The animal print trend has followed us into winter and has crawled its way into the coat section of our wardrobes. Try a faux fur snake, leopard or ocelet coat and don't be afriad to pair back with everything from light-wash denim to coloured knits to silk dresses.
