After last week’s article on Knitwear, let’s talk about Coats for Winter 2020/21.
Just before we get to the heart of the matter with the Shopping Selection (below in this article), let’s take a look at the Fashion Trends and Style Advices, answering the questions “How to wear the Coat this Winter?” and “How to know if a coat is warm or not?”.
4 Trends are present for Winter 2020/21:
The colors for this season are inspired by the colors of the earth: khaki, brown, camel, beige, ivory and gray.
- Bathrobe Coat: in other words, the belted coat! We love to curl up in it, it’s the cocooning piece of winter to wear when you leave home.
- Workwear Shirt: take the shape of a wide shirt in the thick materials of winter coats or leather jacket. Plain, it is worn as a jacket/ coat.
- Quilted Coat/ Jacket: the hunting jacket goes off the beaten track and adapt itself to the city by adopting fashion details (belted, oversized, long or with an original quilting design).
- Puffer Jacket:Unlike previous years, the trend this year is a well-puffed volume, which is reminiscent of the cozyness of a duvet.
How to Wear Coats this Fall-Winter 2020, 7 options are available:
→ Bathrobe Coat/ Belted Coat: very easy to wear, this coat will go with all your outfits!
→ Puffer Jacket: this season, it is also very nice dressed up in heels.
1- Chic and Classic: puffer jacket + sweater + trousers + heeled boots + bag. Be careful not to exceed 3 colors in your outfit. The idea is to play with the colors while measuring them. Examples: Ivory + Beige + Brown or Ivory + Khaki + Black.
2- Casual and Trendy: puffer jacket + knit dress + Chunky boots + bag. Still no more than 3 colors. Another example: Khaki + Taupe + Black.
→ Quilted Vest: ideal worn with pants.
1- Trendy version: with wide pants and white sneakers for a casual look and trousers with claws and heels for a chic outfit.
2- Classic version: with cigarette pants and loafers.
→ Workwear Shirt:
1- Trendy version: ideal worn with trousers with claws, (find the article on the trousers here) that we associate with Chunky boots.
2- Classic version: for a timeless outfit, cigarette pants + loafers/ ballerinas or ankle boots will be the perfect match for an easy everyday outfit.

〉〉〉〉〉〉〉〉 Last Advice: How to know if a coat is warm or not?
Look at the composition label. If your coat/jacket contains wool or cashmere then it will be warmer than a 100% synthetic piece. Also, the more the % of wool or cashmere is important, the warmer the coat will be. Another clue, the price! Coats under 100€ are first prices, so not very warm (synthetic materials). Wool and cashmere are so-called “noble” materials, therefore more expensive. Count for a warm coat between 130€ and 250€, even more when these are from brand clothes.
