Winter Staples- The Only 5 Coats You'll Ever Need
Posted on June 24 2018
The end is nigh everyone…
And by the end, I mean July, and by July, I mean the middle of winter. This is not a drill.
This is always a tough time of year for your wardrobe- have you ever felt that last winter’s pieces, are just not doing it for you anymore? Maybe it’s a fad thing? Or maybe your personal taste has just changed?
Lo and behold, Estro’s July staples are at your service; keep reading to find out the winter coats you’ll need in your wardrobe this month, and next month…and every month after that.
I’m calling it. The longline coat is the ultimate winter essential.
As a good-quality longline coat can sometimes be quite costly, you want the wear to be worth it. Opt for more neutral colours like tan, navy, black, or a light faun like this divine mink collar coat from Heresis. Available only at Estro.
Sophisticated, stylish, and oh-so much more than your everyday blazer. The tailored coat has ‘elegance’ written all over it. This Chloé coat is a personal favourite of mine, and is just made to go with creams, whites and even denim!
I’m always up for a statement piece, like this killer leopard coat from RedValentino (diffusion label for Valentino). When looking, take care to make sure you’re not falling for a fashion fad, as this will be old news by next winter. Lean towards what you think will turn some heads, and most importantly, what you’ll feel yourself in! Whether it’s some intricate embroidery, beading, an interesting cut, vibrant colour, or an eye-catching print, the best statement jackets are usually always found at op-shops, markets, or fashion outlets like Estro.
It’s the trans-seasonal jacket that will complete any look. If you have a more relaxed style, go for an effortlessly cool oversized piece or distressed denim, but if you want a more refined look, try thinner fabrics as they have a slimmer fit, which is super flattering! I have a soft spot for light-wash, however this deep indigo number from Armani is so versatile and easy to wear!
Mink, rabbit, or even faux fur (because not all of us have an extra $4000 to splurge with), nothing says ‘luxury’ quite like a fur coat. Lucky for you, at Estro we have a whole room dedicated to our furs (with some up to 50% off!). With new arrivals every month, you’ll be sure to score yourself a great piece like this Borelli mink coat in off-white.
Until next time!
