Fall has knocked the doors and winters are about to come. Changing weather is showing it’s effects on plants, animals and everyone’s wardrobe. It’s the right time to shop for warm apparels for winter. Coats and jackets are the key trends this winter. Gone were the days of bulky coats that did nothing for figure and style quotient. Trendy overcoats, jackets with accentuated shoulders, military style and boyfriend style have replaced layers of clothing and over-sized sweaters. So, for autumn winter 2009, just think of these styles as an investment purchase.
Military Style: Most of the youth currently prefer to wear military inspired jackets rather than woolly sweaters. These military inspiration jackets are the main craze for fall season. The trend was clearly spotted on Michael Jackson, Chris Martin of Coldplay, Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco for many years. But now, it’s the girls who are taking in practice and the style has been seen on celebrities like Rihanna, Beyoncé and Victoria Beckham very often.
Accentuated Shoulders: A new coat purchase also demands to investigate future trends and particular check for any strong silhouette directions. For autumn/winter 2009, you can see the change in shoulder line in both coats and jackets. Strong shoulder trend is back for fall. Juicy Couture updates the iconic wool pea coat (shown here) with structured puff sleeves and a subtly swingy silhouette that pairs perfectly back to skinny leggings and over-the-knee boots. Double-breasted front with point shaped collar, clean cuffs and inverted back pleat with buttoned belt creates a perfect look for fall.
Leather Jackets: For winter 2009, we not only have luxury cloth coats, but also luxe leather and suede, that adds a new dimension to your wardrobe. Leather jackets have succeeded to be there in trend for past many seasons. But this year, it has changed its style to boyfriend and biker chic. The season’s tough leather jacket with ribbed cuffs by Juicy Couture sweetens up with a floaty printed dress. It has a full-zip front with four-snap placket, snap yoke, snap epaulets, zip cuffs and snap-flap front patch pockets. It will look splendorous when paired with a boyfriend jeans, high heel leather boots and smashing sunglasses.
So, keep yourself comfortable and stylish this winter!
