BY ISIDORA – My grandmother always used to say: “The right coat makes any woman a lady.”
And she was right. Even without a coat, she was a lady. A self-confident woman from the turn of the century, a single mother and most definitely a fashionista. She taught me how to put my hair in a French braid, how to run in high heels and that red and orange really can look great together.
A good coat is the icing on the cake of any winter outfit. The right coat can transform a simple basic outfit into a real eye-catching look.
So for this autumn/winter, I have picked out 3 very ladylike coats. Each of them has its own special style and can be very easily coordinated.
1. A striking look from Bogner:
This Bogner coat was the big surprise. Looking slightly shapeless on the hanger, it transforms when you put it on. The oversize cut gives the look a certain coolness. The beautiful blue shade combined with pastel colours such as pink, soft green and beige simply goes with anything… in particular jeans. It looks great teamed up with chunky knitted jumpers and large polo-necks. The gold buttons add an elegant touch to the casual tailoring.
2. My favourite item from Escada:
I’ve simply fallen in love with this winter coat. The warm colour contrasts beautifully with the heavy greyness of cold days. The material is beautifully soft and silky and the fit is very feminine. Finished off with matching lipstick, it would have definitely been my grandma’s favourite – it’s simply timeless. Which is why I love this dreamy winter coat so much!
3. The all-rounder from Etro:
This coat lends itself to everything. The stud details, classic tailoring and simple colours coordinate with absolutely anything, from jeans and sturdy boots to a cocktail frock. The material is comfortable and soft. You simply won’t want to take it off.
