There’s one saving grace to the current arctic temperatures Melbourne is experiencing, we get to wear oversized wool coats. A coat that provides warmth whilst remaining chic is the Holy Grail for Melbournians during this time of year. The balance between style and functionality is never more important in the winter months, there’s nothing fashionable about being left out in the cold.
The coats I’ve featured in today’s post are great examples of how you can keep the chill factor down and the style factor up. Throwing on an oversized lapel coat in charcoal or grey is one of the easiest ways to stay sophisticated in the cooler months. Wool coats in primary colours or gem stone hues make for a bold statement, after all winter dressing needn’t be drab. Caped poncho coats are versatile enough to be layered with any outfit and the classic check coat gives a warm texture to your winter look. Click on the link below for some elegant options online.
