TOP 5 Autumn & Winter Coats You Need (that aren’t black)

WINTER IS COMING and all the ‘winter babies’ have been relishing the wait! They are the kind who can’t wait till the next cooler seasons come by to change their wardrobe in accordance and there have been gorgeous looks in South African A/W fashion season that are worth the share and definitely worth the wear. Everyone needs a solid, outfit changing jacket but they don’t have to be the boring old black jacket at the back of your closet.

Take a look at these 5 A/W trendy style options for a jacket in 2018.

  1. Bold Prints

From African prints bold with colour to winter florals, bold mixed prints give your outfit a burst of colour and uniqueness, especially when rocked with solid colours. Either with black jeans and a matching t-shirt – spinning a basic outfit to one that’s different or picking any base colour from the pattern  and match it your way.

  1. Velvet

A smooth, classic material. Velvet has been coming in stores in the form of long-sleeved dresses and long button-up tunics that can be turned into chic autumn jackets when the weather is not too cold. This style can be worn both formally and casually, I mean, a velvet biker jacket in millennial pink? Thank you!

  1. Teddy and fur coats

So trendy, so warm and cosy! Teddy coats have been a saviour casual jacket, adding warmth to your casual cool. Also fur doesn’t need to be the whole body of a jacket. Seen in the Safire Wool jacket, this wool, structured jacket is incredible stylish and its faux fur collar adds a pop of glamour to a day time look. This one is best in a neutral tone worn with white or dark jeans and a simple top and stand-out sneakers or platform flats.

  1. Vibrant colours

As we said the best way to individualise your wardrobe this cool season is to move away from your ordinary-pick colours. Why not get a fire engine red as your main coloured jacket this season? For an office piece, check out the tailored jacket in red at Superbalist or the millennial pink Molina Over-sized blazer.  Try a pastel colour with the Pia Cala jacket in a beautiful baby blue.

  1. Textured coats

The walnut waterfall coat down below has been a look to enjoy from last year right into this one. This solid colour, wrapped coat creates an elegant, yet simple look to an outfit. With or without the belt this jacket looks stunning when contrasted with dark wear beneath it or linked with other similarly toned wear for a more minimal look. The faux suede feels great and looks gorgeous in this dusty pink but please pick the tone that suites you and step up to the cold in bright wear this Autumn.
