Short Coats On The Short List For Fashion Must-haves
Fashionistas agree that a short wool coat is this season's must-have fashion item.
The new attitude is one where coats accessorize the outfit, say fashion trend experts at Burlington Coat Factory. The short wool coat is comfortably casual and complements the contemporary layered look.
There are four hot trends in this season's short wool coats. The shorter length leads the way in updated pea coat, trench, swing and military-influenced styles.
Fashion treatments feature great details, such as military coats embellished with oversized buttons, knit collars and epaulets.
Women wanting feminine shapes may gravitate toward swing coats in classic hounds-tooth patterns. This style, with its curved shape, perfectly offsets the narrow pant leg for a sophisticated look.
Pea coats with and without hoods can be found in double- breasted styles, and updated belted trench coats continue in popularity this fall in black, charcoal, chocolate and tweeds.
So how do you know what style is best for you?
As coats are a great expression of one's sense of style, some women find they need several outerwear pieces a season.
According to Burlington Coat Factory experts, the shorter lengths work for just about every fashion need, from on the job to watching the big games in stands.
For dressier occasions, experts say short wool coats are also being worn over dresses, replacing the bulky long wool coat. Anoraks are even considered a perfect choice over casual dresses.
All of these looks are featured at Burlington Coat Factory stores in ladies' sizes, including petite and plus sizes.
Keep it short. This season's short wool coats lead the way in updated pea coat, trench, swing and military styles.
