With winter fast approaching, now is a good time to begin thinking about how you will be keeping warm. A winter coat is an ideal item to add to your winter wardrobe and, if you wear it well, it will keep you warm as well as look incredibly stylish.

The winter coat 101.

In this post, we will look at the basics of making sure you pull off your stylish winter look without sacrificing warmth.

A winter coat can look either frumpy or chic and it is difficult to get the balance right. At #fbo, we have a great range of winter coats to suit all shapes, sizes, and personalities

So how do you choose a coat?

The first step when investing in a winter coat is to think about the following three factors that play a vital part in choosing a winter coat that will best suit your body type and skin coloring.

  • Color: make sure it is complimentary to you and your current style.
  • Style: coats are usually worn for about two seasons and then go out of fashion. Some have longevity but always make sure you are comfortable with how it looks. As long as you like it.
  • Shape: Not all coats are created equal, choose a coat that emphasises your best parts and is comfortable. Also, make sure its length is perfect for your height, you don’t want it to drag on the floor. For example, if you have a petite body type, a long coat may make you look swamped and you may want to consider a shorter length coat (e.g. a pea coat). Taller people can get away with wearing long coats.

It is also very important to consider how your new winter coat will compliment the rest of your current wardrobe – will it look good with what you currently have and will you be able to easily accessorise the coat?

We recommend browsing our online store to get a good idea of which winter coats are available at the moment and to start thinking about what style would work for your particular situation.

A great idea to consider when buying a winter coat is to make sure that you have plenty of room underneath the coat so that you can layer up, especially on colder days. There should be enough room underneath the coat for you to wear a thick sweater or cardigan.

Coats in neutral colors, such as black, brown, or white will make it easier for you to accessorise with scarves, hats, and gloves. It would also make it simpler when deciding what to wear underneath the coat.
