The Beautiful Coat

25 May 2024

Purchasing a coat is a valuable addition to anyone’s winter wardrobe.

Purchasing a coat is a valuable addition to anyone’s winter wardrobe.

A well-chosen coat can be in your wardrobe for years, being a staple every winter season. Although we often add a new style or new fashion colour to our wardrobe each season, the classic style of a coat, with a simple structure, ensures its long-term use, wearability, and versatility. Two things you want from a beautiful coat.

When purchasing a coat consider, what colours you wear on a daily basis and how it complements your existing wardrobe. Next, think about the coat’s length, which depends on your lifestyle and preference. In all our Caroline Eve stores, we currently offer a great variety of coats. We have shorter, what I would call, car coats and a new full-length coat with a tie belt. The tie belt style is a fresh take on the classic double-breasted coat. You can of course do the tie belt up for a more shapely look or simply leave it open.

I really want to show how easy, these new longer style coats are to add to your everyday wear. We all know that coats are fabulous for when you’re going to work, but they are just as nice when you’re off duty too. I love wearing a long coat open over a tracksuit with sneakers and a baseball cap for a relaxed weekend look, set and ready for your next coffee fix or weekend errand. Stay casual, perhaps pairing your coat with denim, a beautiful soft floaty blouse, or knitwear creating a cool yet smart appearance.

Coats can be worn for dressier occasions over dresses, skirts and tailored pants. Tonight, I am in a hotel in Wellington City, looking out the window at many women wearing beautiful coats. It’s lovely to see.Choosing the right colour is quite important for getting the most out of your coat. I am a great wearer of black but that doesn’t mean I should wear a black coat too as it’s nice to have a contrast. What about this gorgeous olive green or check?

I love this olive green coat as it’s very versatile complementing blacks, browns, tans, navy, creams, denim, and white. It’s a new neutral. If it is a pink that you are partial to, this is also available in the same style. Another fabulous colour in a similar style. long line with buttons, is Parchment Marle. This is a beautiful cream with a pink undertone. It looks stunning paired with both light and dark colours.

For those who like shorter coats, our car coat style comes in bright colours like red and royal blue. Red is particularly trendy this season in accessories or coats, giving that French flair. We also have charcoal, a lovely soft grey perfect for pairing with pastel tones like pinks, lilacs, and blues. A beautiful coat makes a winter’s day, almost something to look forward to.
