Autumn Coat Considerations & Why You Should Buy Your Coat Soon
Autumn. Another season change and another change to the wardrobe. The cooler weather will be here soon. But just because the temperatures are comparable with spring, doesn’t mean you can grab that coat and other clothing items purchased for spring.
Wardrobe updates can be costly bu they needn’t be. Hush Style can make you the envy of the office with big discounts on the latest high-end designer fashion to update your look and style.
Comparable temperatures doesn’t mean autumn and spring feel the same. After a long dark winter when the light returns with temperatures creeping into double digits, it feels warmer than it actually is. Not only is the spring coat lighter in colour, it is lighter fabric. When the darkness returns after a hot, sometimes long, summer, it feels cooler. Autumn colours tend to reflect the darkness of the season and are thicker too, to last until the start of winter.
With the cooler temperatures, particularly in the mornings and evening, you want to layer up in a way that you didn’t with the return of light in the spring. Knits are back in with autumn and these extra layers can add an extra size to your coat. There aren’t many things worse than poorly fitted clothes so choose your coat and your layers wisely or else you may not even be able to get the coat sleeves over jumper sleeves and when you can, it restricts movement. Autumn coats should be purchased with layers in mind, especially as the season moves on and winter approaches.
As summer approached, legs were happy to be liberated. Now autumn is here, legs feel the chill again. Not just any tights will do. After a season and half of bare legs, new tights with new patterns are on the shelves. These tend to be thicker and darker than the tights worn in spring and these seasonal colours and textures will go really well with your new autumn coat.
The best styles sell out fast. If your coat needs to last all winter, you need to be in there early to get not only the latest trend, but also one that is flattering to your body and style.
Coats, like other fashion items, should compliment your natural figure. If you’re curvy, you don’t want a coat that’s too boxy or heavy. A coat that compliments your curves, even in layers is a must. Just like if you have a boyish frame, you don’t want to look like you are wearing a sack. You’ll want something that compliments the figure without effort.
Once your frame is considered, you’ll want to consider what clothes you typically wear. A coat suitable for wearing with sportswear is going to be very different to a coat suitable for use with heels and tights. If you leave coat buying to later in the season, all the good coats will be gone and you risk an unsuitable one.
Autumn is the best time to buy coats. You’re more likely to find something suitable for you and your figure. Outer wear needs to be weather appropriate while making you feel comfortable too.
