Styling Your Coats

Slowly but surely, the rainy season is coming upon us. That means cold nights and wet days. The good thing about this is that it’s time to bust out our coats, sweaters, and scarves.

Coats, for some reason, aren’t one of the most common fashion items in Nigeria, though they should be.

They not only keep us warm during these periods but also go a long way (pun intended) to complement our clothes when styled correctly.

Fortunately, there are many coat styles available and many ways to wear them which are as follows:

  1.       Wear coats of thinner material: Not every rainy day requires a very thick coat and in some cases, wearing an overly thick coat can actually lead to discomfort.

To combat this, opt for coats that are made of thinner material. Not only will this prevent you from getting hot but most of these coats are see-through meaning that your actual outfit gets a chance to shine.

To strike a balance between keeping yourself warm and showing off your outfit, pick a coat with thinner material.

  1.       Wear embellished coats: Coats are thought of by some people to be plain materials without much in the way of style.

However, coats can be stylish as well as functional. One of the best ways to add style to an outfit is to opt for a coat that is embellished, whether at the sleeves, shoulders, back or hemlines.

If the outfit you are wearing is plain on its own, an embellished coat can add its own spark to your overall look.

  1.       Transform your outfit from casual to corporate: There are certain coats and jackets that are, as a result of their cut and style, considered more ‘work appropriate’.

If you have an outfit that you consider too casual for the workplace, throw on a work appropriate coat or jacket and you should be good to go.

  1.       Kimono jackets: Kimono jackets are not only stylish but versatile. Depending on how you wear it, a kimono can be worn in the workplace and on the weekends.

Choose a kimono that comes in a bright color and depending on where you are wearing it to, you can wear a belt over it or let to flow freely.

The impending season of rain doesn’t need to put a damper on your style. Throw on a stylish jacket, coat or kimono and beat the rain while looking gorgeous.
