I love how fall coats give you the perfect opportunity to turn heads even if only focus only on one central piece. I think that by now you have your own statement coat – in black, camel, red, print or navy as these were some of the hottest trends for last year or you might have a “classic”. When I say this I am referring to the beige trench, the fur coat, the military coat or the khaki parka…all that I love by the way
This also applies for men styles as there are a lot of fall trends that are a great fit for gentlemen as well. The suit style coats and khaki parkas are so popular and noticed there are tons of options to pick a great look if you decide to have a stylish boyfriend. Make him check out the mens coats at ellos.co.uk as they have really cool styles !
I made some research because I myself, am planning to invest in a new coat for fall – winter 2011 / 2012 there are so many cool options right now! You can see the utilitarian look at Altuzarra, the cropped jacket at Jason Wu, the glamorous fur at Chado Ralph Rucci or the suit style coat at Derek Lam.
Another great style which is becoming more and more popular is the poncho. Volume and freedom in movement seem to be the key elements for the future garments. See bellow 2 wonderful ponchos/capes from Alexander Wang and Cronejo, one more glamorous and the other more urban.
Even if the geometric designs and the bold color prints have always been in fashion, the designs have become a bit more classic and conservatoire. The 60s were a big inspiration for Rimondi - right, or Libertine – left and the looks are somewhat better structured and fitted.
Photos with my new coat soon! Am still browsing the stores for now!
