The Latest Trend is Layering Your Coats

This latest fashion trend comes straight out of the need to stay warm. How incredible: fashion and function seems to be the focus of 2017. Thankfully this winter is proving to be strange, hence our need to be quite vigilant in the creative department.

Layering is nothing new, but there seems to be a rise in layering up on our outerwear. These pieces were meant to keep us warm, so why can’t they be combined for an extra cool day?

Let Your Layers Be Seen

This is your moment to show off. Leave your coats open so your layering effect can be seen. Breaking up the color scheme will really give off a full effect.

Play with Texture

Leather under wool never looked chicer. Warm and trendy much? If it gets too stuffy under those layers you can elegantly robe your top coat over your shoulders.

Mix Up Your Basics

The best way to play around with this trend is by sticking strictly to basics at first. This way, there’s really no way to mess it up. Your standard denim jacket can work really well with a pinstripe coat.

Use Colors to Your Advantage

A focus on darks and neutrals sounds safe, but looks fierce. The mix of navy, camel, and black is effortlessly elegant.
