With the weather changing and the fall fashion season now in full swing, attention of all fashion lovers turns to what are the must have winter coats styles to have this season. Faux fur, military, camel and of course the Mac, all feature heavily in this seasons coat and jacket styles.
The Aviator Jacket
Think 80’s revival with the must have winter coat style for all fashionistas – the aviator jacket. The leather aviator with shearling cuff and collar details is a top trend with this being a fabulous coat style for a casual look. It’s already dominating the high street stores and will be the key dress down jacket to keep you snug this winter without foregoing style.
The Mac arrived back on the winter coat trend list in force last season and this year is no different. The Mac or trench style coat remains hugely popular in AW10. With a classic look, this jacket and coat style can be dressed up or dressed down for a formal or casual look making it a versatile coat to incorporate into your wardrobe.
Camel And Red Tones
Undeniably one of the key colour trends for fall 2010 is the camel tone that swept the fall 2010 catwalks. Coats in all shades of this buttery tan colour hark back to the 70’s era but there is no out of date look associated with this in AW10. From formal work wear style coats to casual dress down jackets, adding a camel coloured coat to your winter wardrobe collection will see you bang on trend this season.
Go for a statement look by opting for a red toned winter coat, another must have colour for this fashion season. Adding red to your fall and winter wardrobe will perk up your winter look as the long dark nights commence. A stand out from the crowd colour option and another top trend.
Inject the key trend of military by opting for a winter coat that incorporates military style detailing teamed with darker tones of grey, khaki and black. The fashion designers love affair with the military trend shows no sign of abating with a vast selection of coats and jackets on the high street often featuring the signature brass buttons and gold trim. Moving on from the traditional double-breasted styling, you’ll find a more understated military look with designers opting for less obvious military touches to give a fresh take on this style.
Luxe lace, velvet and faux fur are the predominant fabrics featured in AW10 winter coat fashion. Over-sized faux fur collars and cuffs to sharp looking velvet style blazers – these fabrics will be key to ensuring your winter coat is bang on trend. Velvet styling will add a touch of gothic glam to your wardrobe with this sumptuous fabric adding a dimension of texture to minimalistic chic outfits. Go for lace for a stunning vintage inspired feminine look with the vintage trend remaining hugely popular in fall and winter 2010.
