Women’s fashion: Stylish coats and jackets for winter 2022
Article posted: June 9, 2022
It might be the last thing we put on when we leave the house, but during the colder months, the coat or jacket you choose is going to be the winter fashion item most people see and the biggest fashion statement you’re going to make.
In winter 2022, there are four key coat and jacket trends you need to know – and the fashion stores that call Camberwell Junction shopping precinct home have them all covered.
Here’s the scoop.
1. The longline puffer jacket
For those who prioritise warmth but refuse to sacrifice style, the longline puffer jacket ticks all the winter fashion boxes.
The layers of warmth-generating fabrics keep you feeling toasty on the coldest of days and the long length means no part of your body is left out in the cold.
Bold quilting and high collars are the features of this season’s longline puffer; select basic black for the commute into work or choose a metallic hue or brighter shade for weekend walks and Sunday brunches.
2. The blazer
The blazer is the perfect weekday jacket, combining warmth with city-chic and corporate style.
Worn as part of a pant suit or over a dress, cuts can be single or double-breasted – both trends are featuring on the catwalks this season.
Importantly, for winter 2022, the blazer has consciously uncoupled from the suit and is now blazing a trail all on its own.
Team with jeans and a tee for a casual look, or finish off a skirt and shirt combo, or long-legged jumpsuit.
Don’t try to get too matchy-matchy; this season’s blazer can be the hero piece of an ensemble.
3. Wrap coat
It’s the coat so called because the wearer doesn’t put it on, she wraps it on.
The classic wrap coat is wrapped one side over the other, often secured by a belt that is tied rather than buckled.
This season the wrap coat can be buttoned, or button-free, as long as it’s crafted from a soft wool blend and tied with the hallmark belt.
4. The classic peacoat
Ever since the first sailor of old donned a pea coat and announced ‘awesome!’, they have been a favourite of those who like to feel their coats wrapped around their bodies like a giant hug.
Peacoats are traditionally double breasted and shorter than other coats, falling at the hips.
In winter 2022, though, peacoats have become a little bit fancy. Cuts are tailored and square, and fashioned from fabrics normally reserved for blazers.
Buttons are also a big feature: think bold silver, ornate ceramics, or fabric in contrast colours.
Winter 2022 peacoat styles can substitute for blazers over pant suits or dresses for a look that’s a little funkier and can be worn unbuttoned over cords or jeans for casual occasions.
Puffer jackets, blazers, wrap coats and peacoats are timeless styles, so make sure you invest in all four. You’ll find the right colours and styles for you at any of the fashion stores in Camberwell Junction shopping precinct.
