Elevate your long-sleeved top by rocking a sleek cape coat on top. This unique arm-less design stretches as far back as medieval times. It is a bell-shaped coat that completely covers the shoulders and then drapes downwards.

This blanket-like coat is feminine and is perfect for a day out. Pair it with long pants, or a short dress with knee-length boots. A clutch bag or a top handle bag would be ideal as an accessory.

Wrap and Belted Coats

Wrap and belted coats do not need to look like your dressing gown. They can be a stylish leather jacket with a 70’s feel, or a stylish sweeping shearling coat. They feature extra-layered material at the front that allows the closure to overlap.

The wrap or belt is tied at the waist for shape definition, which keeps the look polished and feminine. You can rock these stylish coats with both sneakers or heels.

Double-Breasted Coats

The Double-breasted is like a stylish representation of military coats. They feature a fitted bust and waist, and some even have metal buttons. Far from the marshmallow look, this coat is sexy and functional.

They are available in all colors and sizes and can be both worn at the office or a casual event. This is a perfect outerwear piece to update your winter wardrobe.

Trench Coats

If you do not already own one, make this the season to do so. They are simple, classy, trendy, and feminine. They are light-weight, weather-proof, and can be worn with anything. It is the smartest purchase for your wardrobe this winter.
