Women’s fashion trends: 3 must-have coats for winter
Article posted: June 13, 2019
Coats keep us dry and warm on those chilly Melbourne days, but comfort and style are also important for this wardrobe essential this winter.
About as comfortable as wrapping yourself in five scratchy blankets, the problem with winter coats is that traditionally they’ve been all about function and that function is to keep you dry and warm.
This year, though, the forecast for Camberwell is for a bright burst of winter sunshine!
This winter, the fashion stars have collided and are bringing together comfort and style in stores right across Camberwell. We’re talking about the cuddliest, fluffiest, puffiest coats that feel like a warm hug every time you slip them on – in this season’s hottest colours and cuts.
These are the three must-have coats for winter 2019:
1. The puffer coat
The puffer coat keeps you warm; it keeps you dry – and it envelops you like a big fat doona. But this season, the puffer jacket moves away from the straight-off-the-ski-slopes look and has been reinvented in a way that is immaculately chic.
Camberwell is absolutely awash with puffer coat inspiration. Sussan is less Michelin Man and more quilted, tailored affairs; while the Sportsgirl offering is a nod to the traditional, square cut parka. Decjuba, always fashion-forward, has reimagined the puffer coat in the season’s hottest colour: mustard.
2. The fluffy coat
As warm and cosy as a hug from a teddy bear, fluffy coats and faux fur are taking centre stage this season, and they’re just as likely to be seen on fun-loving Millennials as they are on top tier executives.
This winter, fluffy coats are tailored and structured, and more than a little bit luxe.
This season in Camberwell, Cue has nailed the fluffy coat in the hue of the moment: blush; while Seed has opted for the classic cut faux fur that looks like they’ve been ripped straight from a night at the opera; and Decjuba’s chunky woollen fluffy coat is perfect for the casual weekend outing.
3. The classic trench
It’s the one item every style icon has in her wardrobe and you need one now. The classic trench is as versatile as it is flattering. It goes with any outfit, suits wearers of every age, and can take you from school drop off to the office and then dinner.
This season, the trench is hot and in Camberwell there are styles for everybody and every budget. They even come in heavier woollen fabrics for those really chilly days.
The classic trench is an investment piece so always choose quality. This winter in Camberwell, Country Road trenches are created from the finest of fabrics and cut to perfection; Taking Shape has nailed the sleek minimalist silhouette; and Cue has a range of trenches so timeless you’ll be wearing them for years.
