Detail n ° 1: style tips

Because few coats have no buttons. So start by observing your pimples. Are they always on trend or in tune? Too often we overlook this important detail. Probably because a button is only considered a fastener. Only think again. The coat button is anything but a way to close your pea coat, frock coat or cape!

This is why it can have a staggering effect on clothing. Design buttons, fancy or haute couture buttons? Contemporary buttons or vintage buttons? There is something for all tastes and styles. And that’s without counting on their materials: galalith (i.e. milk resin), wood essence, molded resin or faceted glass …

In addition, the sewing button is a reasonable budget. So do not deprive yourself of this clever and stylistic accessory.

Detail n ° 2: the crush accessory

Why crush or key accessory? I always say that THE fashion accessory is essential. So, it is above all a question of making a color shock or adding an unstoppable and identifiable one which will transform your appearance and that of your coat.

Because nothing is more sad than a coat without a touch of color or a desirable and creative object, like a magical adornment. Here, the field of possibilities is vast: scarf, scarf, snood or THE bag that will highlight this centerpiece of your ultra feminine wardrobe.

No, by changing form, I’m still in the trick. And there, the belt comes into play. Because yes, a belt can also transform the style of your coat. And whether it’s an overcoat or, on the contrary, a couture piece … haute couture.

The coat: a garment like no other

Caban, trench coat, overcoat, frock coat, duffle coat, bathrobe … More than an accessory, the coat hides and protects us. So this winter, do you wear a coat or is it the coat that carries you?

Coat styles

If the peacoat or duffle coat is your second skin, there is a good chance that you like the classic, the order (because of the double buttoning of the pea coats and the Brandenburg duffle-coat!) Or that you are a girl sailor or descendant of pirates. Do you know that the pirates borrowed this term from the Arabs who called Qabà the garment above? But perhaps your leitmotiv is above all to be comfortable in a straight cut?

In contrast to straight cuts, you lean more for a ‘soft envelope’ way frocking? ‘Cintré‘ meaning waisted ‘par excellence‘ and long, even very long, the frock coat is a link between sophistication and enhancement of our feminine forms. The frock coat also evokes a pretty propensity for nostalgia and an ode to femininity. Star of the 80s, she is back in great shape sculptural coat!

For the sake of convenience and because you are an earthling, the Canadian (French Canadian naming!) or Duvet is your favorite overcoat? Never mind ! She is warm and comfortable. And you are certainly more pragmatic, a true epicurean in the sense of enjoying the warmth and well-being of the long version down jacket!

Finally, do you wear the bathrobe coat? Indispensable, timeless, it embodies fluidity. Moreover, I call it agile clothing and I am a fan of this look. With him, you live as you are! The bathrobe style is for all occasions: in evening version dressed on tuxedo or little black dress, or in office mode or to take out your dog adored in the early morning!

Black, beige or colored coat?

Besides the cut, the color matters. A good basic is also our three-quarter black or camel. We all have one! And what’s fun with a black overcoat in particular is to accessorize it or personalize it with buttons of bright clothing.

It is quite possible also for a more sophisticated way Like Boys or minimalist fashion, to associate mother-of-pearl buttons that will be real jewels on the black or plain of your dress. Conversely, if your fetish coat is yellow or blue, play this year especially haute couture buttons or black design buttons for a unique look like Marc Jacobs.

United or patterned?

So this winter, all styles are allowed: tweed coats and big tiles like Sherlock Homes or Mango! But also, floral caban if you want to get closer to Italy or Brazil and create a virtual heat effect in the cold.

To wear long or short?

As you like! If you are rather consensual, the three-quarter is also a good must. But if you prefer elegance and you are big (!), Then do not hesitate to wear your coat at mid-calf even just above the ankle.

Natural or synthetic fibers?

In cold weather, wool is de rigueur! Or, fashionista or fan of daily cocooning? Straight on the faux fur as soft as cashmere! And do not deprive yourself of patterns imitating the coat of our friends the felines and our friends the animals in general for an ethical and responsible fashion!

New or vintage?

Because we are all faithful to one or two overcoats that we want to wear at any price from year to year! But what if his fabric or seams become fragile with the seasons? Appointment in second hand shops that are more and more numerous and selective in their choice of clothing. And if you prefer a coat firsthand without making the choice of haute couture or a designer coat, plan a quick shopping session on Google and then shop!

Coat buttons … Essential jewelry!

But above all, always make sure that the accessories of your coat are beautiful and unique. It is not a question of brand but of quality for a style just for you. In addition, whether it’s the buttons on your coat or the jewelry you’ll wear to give it depth, it’s a whole. In summary, designer jewelry or haute couture buttons or why not vintage buttons will be your best allies! That is said!
