We’ve checked the calendar and the weather forecast, and we’ve come to the conclusion that winter’s not far away. That’s no surprise, of course, but we’d like to point out that this could be your last chance to prepare for the inevitable. Fluffy coats are your first line of defence for winter 2014/15, but with so much choice, you’ll need to make some hard decisions.
Do you go for a faux fur made chic by leather trim and embellishments, or will you cinch your waist with a slim belt? Will it be long and oversize – a cosy and comfy garment to be worn with sweater, jeans and sunnies, a pretty maxi, or even shorts and opaque tights? Perhaps you’ll declare yourself to be a statement sort of a girl in a cardicoat instead.
Fluffy coats stalked the runways in animal prints and geometrics, and pattern details repeated themselves on tights, while colour blocks stunned in combinations of brown and black on white. Milan paid lip service to the sixties, with Gucci showing a pink shaggy topper and pale knee-high shiny boots. Versace, Chloé, Alexander McQueen and Fendi walked on the wild side with splashes of vibrant colours and patchwork effects, while Just Cavalli majored in red.
If you hanker after a more tailored version, pair a jacket with a short jumper, wrap skirt and hat. Alternatively, team with a tee and cropped pants, or palazzos; or opt for leather jeans beneath leopard spots. Go collarless and add trousers for some mannish style, or throw your fluffy coat over business wear. Match curly fake fur with a pleated skirt and long scarf, or showcase winter shorts with a cropped bomber, over the knee socks and booties. Top either – or both! – with a fetching fedora.
Pastels and fluffiness go hand in hand, it seems, but combine them with dark clothes to shock them out of their sweetness, or pull on reptile pattern boots in a matching shade. Make a statement with long-pile creamy white, and balance with a grey knitted beanie. Large spots give form to fur – try black on white or vice versa, or rock a red background!
However you choose, you’ll be ready for whatever winter throws at you, and if the worst doesn’t happen, well, we just know that you’ll happy in your gorgeous fluffy coat, anyway.
