Being on a budget doesn’t mean your style has to suffer. Winter may be coming to a close soon, but you know there are pieces from your winter wardrobe that you won’t be able to let go off because you know you’ll be using them again. Coats, for example, are a staple in anyone’s winter wardrobe. There are plenty of different kinds of coats out there, though, and if your goal is to build a classic winter wardrobe that will last (and save you money from buying new ones again and again in the future) then read on below.
A classic, neutral trench coat
A classic trench coat in a neutral color is something that you can bank on will never go out of style. If you haven’t got one already or if you’re looking for one to add to your cold weather wardrobe, feel free to splurge a bit on one. You’ll definitely be getting a lot of wear from it in the years to come.
A ritzy fur coat
I know it doesn’t snow everywhere, but any girl who loves fashion needs at least one ritzy-looking fur coat in her wardrobe. You can use it to jazz up a plain and simple outfit for dressy events, for that out-of-the-country-to-somewhere-cold trip in the future, or for when you just want to play dress up and have fun at home! Obviously, if you’re not going to be wearing it as much, I wouldn’t suggest buying something super high-end.
A casual shearling coat
Not a fan of ritzy fur coats? How about something more casual like a shearling coat? These go great with jeans and other basic, simple, and casual pieces. They’re not too dressy, but they’re still nice and cozy.
A slightly oversized tuxedo-style coat
This is the perfect piece to top your outfits off with on days when you’re feeling like letting your inner #girlboss show. Go for something light and a little bit oversized to pull off that chic and casual vibe instead of setting the tone to formal business.
A strongly structured coat
Here’s another piece you can use anytime you feel like going for a more put-together look. A strongly structured coat is something you can always top your outfits off with, no matter the season, to get that girl boss vibe going.
A sleeveless maxi coat
A lot of people argue whether a sleeveless coat is really a coat, but I like to think of it as one of the essential coats a style enthusiastic will always need in her wardrobe. These are perfect for spring and summer on top of jumpsuits and sun dresses and then again for fall and winter to layer long sleeves looks with.
A statement coat
Because any girl who’s into fashion knows that adding at least one statement piece to every look is a must.
