What sort of coat should I buy?

Before you invest in your new coat, there are a number of factors to consider:

  • Type & thickness of fabric: Choosing the right type of fabric for your coat is a mixture of personal preference and practicality, depending on where you live and time of year. Thick, long wool coats are go-to choices for serious cold snaps. Alternatively a light, showerproof jacket or a stylish trench coat may be a more appropriate choice. Explore creation L for a fantastic range of premium fabrics for quality and choice.
  • Color: Neutrals such as black, gray, or navy are excellent choices as they will go with almost anything, which makes them great multi-taskers. But before you decide on color, take a look in your closet. Do you already have lots of pieces in a signature color that you love? Maybe red, bottle green or electric blue? If so, consider this as your “neutral” color for your coat – it’s guaranteed to compliment the items you already own. Browse coats for women in a whole host of neutral, signature and on-trend colors and be inspired to find a piece in a fabulous new shade.
  • Length: First and foremost, this will depend on the climate and time of year. Long coats give the best coverage and warmth, but in milder areas, a mid- or above the knee length may be a better choice. From short, quilted jackets to long, swishy winter coats, creation L has them all.

What is the best coat for my shape?

Stepping out in a coat that really flatters your body type is a sure-fire confidence booster.

  • • Hourglass: opt for a coat with a belt to show off your waist. Belted woolen coats and classic trenches will look sensational on you.
  • • Pear-shaped: mid-length styles that define the shoulders and have interesting lapels or collars. Interesting detailing on the upper body of your coat will look great.
  • • Apple-shaped: a coat that falls to the top of your thighs will show of your fabulous legs. A-line coats are a perfect choice.
  • • Petite: the key to finding a coat for a smaller frame is to avoid looking swamped by too much fabric. Pea coats or cropped coats are flattering on petite ladies. If you prefer a long coat, opt for a belted style or a slim-cut, tailored coat.

How can I style my coat?

As your coat may be the only thing that people see when you are outdoors, it can be helpful to think of it as a secondary outfit that will showcase your style. So make the most of a fabulous coat, consider your overall silhouette and accessorize.

  • Contrasting footwear and bags add a striking note and will set the tone for the rest of your outfit.
  • High heels with a pointed toe will elongate your silhouette while adding sophistication and glamor. Boots are cold-weather essentials to ensure you stay safe and warm.
  • Choose scarves, gloves, and hats in a single contrasting color for a polished look that oozes winter chic.
  • In milder weather, add a statement brooch to your lap to individualize your style.
