The Overcoat

Well start with the most popular type of coat for winter, which is the standard overcoat. Made from a variety of different materials usually with a nylon outer for waterproofing and often with a fur-lined interior a traditional overcoat can be worn for any occasion and still looks great. Choose a muted and versatile colour or shade grey and brown are very popular as they can pair with anything you wear and dont forget to add a pair of stylish boots to get the full look! If you find an overcoat that you like, it will be with you for a long time and become a close friend in cold weather.


Once worn only by kids who thought they were the height of street style, oversized hoodies have become very much in-vogue of late, and you may find them to be one of the must-have fashion items while the days and nights remain cold.  Go for bright colours and a fully lined model  faux-fur is best for warmth and comfort and youll find this a very trendy example of outerwear that will remain in fashion for next winter and beyond.
