We offer a handy five-point checklist that will help you understand how relevant your coat will look this season.
Quality and beautiful coats are definitely worth investing in. A perfectly matched item will serve you for many years, so do not be stingy and choose the option worthy of you. A classic double-breasted coat in camel color is a win-win option. Gray, brown, and milky colors will also be a great alternative to black. Fashion designer and stylist Apollon Baigakoff talk about the five main features of a stylish spring coat.
Color and prints
Bright, juicy shades have been added to the classic colors this season: yellow, blue, green, lavender, orange, pink, red, neon – with them you will definitely not get lost in the crowd. This spring’s must-have is the Max Mara coat, which is reminiscent of the style of the elite of the 50s and conquers with sophistication and elegance. A coat with soft lines and a spring breeze in every curve, sunny beach days, and the breath of the sea. If you are tired of sitting at home and want warmth and adventure, I advise you to purchase a bright-colored coat in this relaxed style. Or an elegant coat with a belt from Alberta Ferretti – a profitable investment in the wardrobe. A fashionable dome-shaped hobo bag from Tod’s, for example, will perfectly fit into the image.
Colors and prints this spring are designed to create a light playful mood. One of the most extravagant will be the tiger print – the symbol of this year. The rest of the prints will be more restrained: be it a geometric pattern or a stylish large check, actual “monograms”, or ethnic ornaments. It is important to understand that wearing a bright coat, it would be appropriate to mute the rest of the colors in the image, focusing on outerwear.
The length of the coat this season for every taste! Classic – below the knee, and better midi – this is my endless love. Fans of floor-length dresses will appreciate the maxi length, now it is at its peak of popularity. With such a coat, you are guaranteed a chic look, although it does not differ in practicality. Straight cut, loose fit, no unnecessary details, and you are in the spotlight. Pair with jeans and palazzo trousers with cropped blazer-style coats with a wide belt at the waist. The length of the sleeve also varies – there will be fashionable coats with three-quarter sleeves and cuffs, and long leather gloves will complete the look.
As before, oversized does not lose its relevance and enters the new spring-summer 2022 season with us. Be bolder – consider models with kimono sleeves, this is non-standard and interesting. Pay attention also to coats with very voluminous, massive shoulders and in the style of “barrel” – this casual style will give you a special flair. Designers also offer to take a closer look at the poncho – comfortable, fashionable, and creative for everyday looks.
The first time you put on a cozy, voluminous plush coat, you won’t want to take it off. Many Hollywood stars have fallen in love with this trend, and our Russian spring cannot do without this thing that can warm you up on the coldest days. Caramel, marshmallow, biscuit, and lavender colors are perfect with a plush coat. For everyday looks, it is appropriate to choose a coat in more restrained shades, and for going out, hot pink, red or animalistic. A coat with a fringe or military-style will suit the most daring. Yes, not for every day, but it’s worth it.
Great news for sporty-chic lovers, quilted coats never go away, and if you haven’t bought one yet, it’s time to add it to your wardrobe. For example, a pastel pink coat from Salvatore Ferragamo will emphasize your femininity and charisma. Quilted coats are perfect for chilly weather when it’s warm but still windy. Choose a model of midi length, a fitted silhouette, and flared to the bottom.
As for the material, the trend is wool, cotton blend, cashmere, quilted fabric, jacquard, velveteen, faux fur, and eco-leather.
If you want something extravagant, add spectacular touches – interesting accessories, a vintage-style brooch, a ring with a large stone, a fringe (or a coat with a fringe, like in Twin Set or Pinko), gold buttons, maxi lapels, a belt with gold buckle.
