If you are used to short models, and your girlfriend loves oversize, and, better, maxi-length, rejoice both. In the fall-winter 2017-2018 season, designers prepared fashionable coats for every taste. We paid maximum attention to the decor, so it will be easier to find a unique cut and buttons!
In the autumn-winter season there will be as much fur as possible, starting from lush collars and ending with solid coat-coats. No less popular will also be: the military style, capes and various sleeve options – in the abundance of styles, they will not be lost for long. And although, judging by the calendar, it’s too early to get into too warm clothes, it’s time to find out the main trends. We have collected 24 coat options suitable for such mixed weather.
One of the key trends in autumn and winter 2017 is a maxi coat, which will organically fit into both a business and everyday look. To guess with the style, remember that tall and slim fit classic models and A-silhouettes.
As well as models with a belt at the waist, which further emphasizes the ideal proportions.
For girls with plus-size, it is better to look at oversize models, cocoons and a free-cut coat without any decor elements. Similar models are in the collections of Dries Van Noten, Christopher Kane and Joseph.
Universally in a maxi-format blown and fur coats look. The first will replace the old down jacket, and the second an expensive fur coat. Great solution, isn’t it?
Ideally, a long coat should be plain, better than neutral blue, black, brick, beige shades.
The beginning of autumn, and with it the last warmly dictates its trends in fashion. This is primarily reflected in the length. So, shortened styles come to the fore, mainly above the knee. In addition, no matter how comfortable and practical the jackets are, without a short coat everyone’s favorite style is simply impossible.
As for the cut, both classic double-breasted models with buttons or without fasteners, coat-jackets, coat-jackets, and more complex styles are relevant. The main thing to remember is that, regardless of the cut, it is desirable that the bottom be narrow – a pencil skirt, skinny pants or skinny jeans.
In the autumn-winter season 2017-2018, a fashionable coat should not only warm, but also attract the attention of passers-by. And the original cut of the sleeve is a win-win option to achieve such a wow effect. Take a look at the straight three-quarters three-quarter sleeve coat with high gloves so harmoniously fit.
Balenciaga and Issey Miyake presented a cape coat with a shortened wide sleeve, from under which a sweater or blouse peeps freely.
Ermanno Scervino and Fendi presented another version of a shortened sleeve with a furry.
While scientists are talking about global warming, designers, too, are not idle. For this occasion, they prepared fashionable fur coats and sleeveless coats. Despite the fact that their practicality is very controversial, real fashionistas believe that cold winds are not scary with a personal car, and fitted coat-jackets or coat-coats from Creatures of the Wind, Dennis Basso, Michael Kors are just what need until the frost hit the street.
For those who value comfort, designers are advised to wear a sleeveless coat with long gloves or wear a warm sweater. It will be both fashionable and warm.!
On women with a pear-type figure, coats in Art Nouveau style with wide sleeves sit as harmoniously as possible. Take only a basic coat from Delpozo with ham sleeves, Alexis Mabille with his bell sleeves or John Galliano with his bishop sleeves.
Sleeves enlarged along the entire length by Etro, Jil Sander and Kenzo, which organically hide both full arms and excessive thinness, also look stylish..
Increased shoulder line
To add to the figure, whether predatory, or vice versa, fragility in the cold will help a coat with volume on the shoulder line. The first option is to enlarge the shoulder seam, which will make the shoulders square and sharp. The figure from such reincarnations will seem miniature, like the models of Versace, Mugler, Dries van Noten and Stella McCartney.
The second option is to omit the shoulder seam, adding a seductive roundness to the figure. This technique is most often used in oversized models to draw attention to volume and soft cut even more..
Coat with belt
If earlier you hoped only for buttons, now designers offer to wear warm winter coats with a belt. Moreover, the trend is both thin straps and wide long fabric belts that can be tied to a bow or left completely untied.
Belts with large metal buckles will help to put emphasis on a waist that has grown thin over the summer. Moreover, the latter can be either round in the style of EmporioArmani, or rectangular (Ellery, Christopher Kane).
There will be as many cells in the next cold season as there are flowers this spring. So that the cage does not bother us, the designers approached creatively to create a coat. In fashion all the varieties of this print, in any color and combination. For example, Prada, Mary Katrantzou and Zuhair Murad diluted the cell with floral motifs..
Touching Vichy cell – one of the key trends of this spring – remains with us until the next summer season. But the classic red-white combination and summer colors in the autumn-winter season 2017-2018, designers have bypassed, heading for traditional winter tones.
No less popular is the Scottish cage – tartan. We liked this pattern thanks to warm coats by Marc Jacobs and Etro. These brands recalled that besides the classic red and blue tartan, there are other variations.
The goose foot and cage of the Prince of Wales also quite often flashed on the catwalks of all four fashion capitals. This print, unlike the Scotch, Alexander Wang, Ermanno Scervino, Ellery and Giambattista Valli preferred to wear in a classic black and white version.
Another representative of the classics is draped and woolen coats with a herringbone pattern. Or, as the print is also called, “fishbone”, “corners”, “broken strip”. Herringbone coat presented by Daks, Fendi and a couple of other well-known brands.
And small flowers, and large bouquets, and voluminous floral decor are held in high esteem by designers not only in the summer season. Especially a lot of colors were in the collections of Antonio Marras, Daks, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Prada and Mary Katrantzou.
Moreover, the coat does not have to be made in one color – plant motifs mix perfectly with other fashionable patterns – a cage and animal print.
There will be as many “animal prints” as a leopard in the fall-winter 2017-2018 season as there are flowers this spring. Michael Kors, Brock Collection, Etro, Jeremy Scott, and several other fashion houses have included animal print coats in their collections..
Take even the brightest Dolce leopard monoluki Dolce & Gabbana and Marco de Vincenzo – stylish, moderately strict and not at all defiant – as usual with “predatory” images.
The craving for abstractionism is especially pronounced in winter collections – either the designers want to repeat the unique frosty patterns on the windows, or vice versa – remember the bright floral highlights on the summer fields.
In any case, screen prints, lines, ruffling prints will definitely distinguish your fashionable coat among the same monochromatic counterparts. Try buying a model painted in the style of Blumarine, Emilio Pucci, Isabel Marant, Miu Miu or John Galliano.
The fashion for “all in one color” images has not passed for several years. Coats, bags, shoes – by Gucci, Nina Ricci and Dolce & Gabbana is better than others turns out to follow this direction.
In the fall-winter season 2017-2018, designers diversified this trend a little, combining 2-3 colors and the type of fabric to simplify the creation of fashionable bows a little. The guru of such tricks can be called Anna Sui and Alberta Ferretti.
Coat in blue
Against the backdrop of dark brown, gray and black colors, the bright blue coats looked even more profitable and brighter, which this year are presented in the fashionable color Marina.
And although bright shades (with the exception of blue) are not favored in the autumn-winter season, the eclectic combination of cobalt and ruby red in outerwear has reached the top fashion trends of the season. Giorgio Armani became a pioneer, presenting a whole selection of cashmere coats consisting of colored blocks.
The neutral gamut has also become a key one at the fall-winter 2017-2018 shows, so you will not be able to get past not very practical, but such feminine white coats. Ermanno Scervino, Giambattista Valli, Oscar de la Renta, Sportmax and many others successfully defeated the innocent image..
If the white total bow does not appeal to you, you can add to the image of a fashionable blue color, color accents or dress in black style&white.
A chic mink coat of 100% is in the wish list of every woman. But in the upcoming cold season, designers advise paying attention to a fur coat – it looks no less cool, and it hardly costs more. Fur coats from noble mink are in the Dennis Basso collection.
Coats with large fur collars and a hem on the sleeves look no less beautiful. In addition, solid fox tails, mink or astrakhan skins will help you avoid the piercing autumn wind, and therefore seasonal colds.
Bright faux fur looks no less advantageous. Mary Katrantzou and Miu Miu presented collars of juicy shades, and Prada proposed to hem the coat with bright fur.
Also in the top fashion solutions fell fur boas that are worn with a coat. The boa can be thrown over the shoulder, fixed at the waist or insulated shoulders.
Fashion house designer Max Mara unveils a line of long faux fur coats in tan.
And the last fur trend is the sleeves of bright faux fur, gathered up to folds.
Wool, Tweed and Cashmere
Only fur will be cozier and warmer than these truly winter fabrics. But if you are against the killing of animals, then soft cashmere coats of light shades will save you from the cold.
In principle, every fashion house has such warm basic models. But we are impressed by classic gray wool coats – that’s what timeless fashion means.!
Black and colored, matte and patent leather, with imitation of reptile skin, as well as trend vinyl – a leather coat looks good in any color and texture. There is no doubt that at least the next season, along with tweed and cashmere, the skin will set the tone for the winter fashion.
To make it warmer for you, choose models with a warm lining and a thick edge along the edges of the coat for the winter.
The fashion for a warm sheepskin lining was formed at the stage of spring-summer collections during presentations of denim clothes. In the fall-winter season, such a practical and beautiful lining has become part of warm coats. Balmain, Peter Pilotto and Proenza Schouler proved that sheepskin is a strong competitor to fur, especially in everyday life.
Deliberately simple coat-gowns – the perfect choice for everyday outings. They are suitable for almost any type of figure, but on the hourglass they look the most advantageous. This season, it will be fashionable to wear such a coat both by the smell under the belt and wide open.
It will be fashionable to complement autumn and winter casual images with a plush coat-dressing gown – let others think that you left the house without changing clothes. Many similar images were presented by Blumarine, Each x Other, Calvin Klein, Max Mara.
It’s not worth talking a lot about trendy oversized men’s style. Better look at the collections of Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang, Jil Sander and Michael Kors to understand that trouser suits and layering look great with such coats.
If you like grunge or unisex, coats borrowed from the military’s wardrobe will definitely appeal to you. A straight cut duffle coat of medium or maxi length is one of the most high-profile trends of fall-winter 2017-2018. But, by and large, the trend is everything that at least slightly resembles a tunic or uniform.
Examples of “military” coats can be found in the Altuzarra and Ermanno Scervino collections – here are large buttons, and hussar fasteners, and camouflage with epaulets.
Capes, a poncho, cape coats and even shawl coats looked very unusual. Original models delighted the eye in the collections of Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Prabal Gurung, Issey Miyake, Mulbery, Valentino.
The trend is both long models and bolder capes. In addition, the same coat can be worn with both infantile dresses and jeans and chelsea boots – the cape can look different and will fit into any style – classic, casual, sporty, suitable for both casual looks and for an evening out.
Classic rhombus, vertical and horizontal stitching, curly stitches –designers decided to experiment with quilted fabrics. Thus, down jackets, quilted jackets, and now puffed coats became the main hit this fall.
In fact, down-padded coats are not a new trend, they appeared on the catwalks a year ago, but then for some reason they did not take root on the streets of the city. And only now they are becoming really mega popular.
How to wear a coat
Walking tight in a buttoned coat, although warm, is not relevant. Moreover, until frosts come, a coat can be worn for plowing. It is very fashionable and modern.!
You can also wear a coat by simply throwing it over your shoulders without putting your hands on the sleeves or, conversely, tucking the sleeves to folds.
A stylish cape, a checkered trench coat, a classic floor coat or a down jacket – in the fall-winter season 2017-2018 there is definitely something to choose from. Even the most spoiled fashionista will be able to update her wardrobe depending on the general mood of the image.
Be the most fashionable beauty! Good luck!
