Winter is coming! It may be a little way off just yet, but right now is the perfect time to start thinking about one of the most exciting fashion decisions you’ll make this season – Choosing your winter maternity coat! Your coat will define your winter style more than any other piece in your wardrobe this season: It will be the final flourish to your outfit, and the first impression you make – so make sure you choose wisely! Check out our top 5 tips and discover the perfect winter maternity coat for you.
1) The Neckline
Look out for styles with detailing around the neckline or shoulders – this will balance out your pregnancy curves and draw attention up towards your face. A wide collar or feminine draped neckline is perfect, so our Black Wool & Cashmere Maternity Coat with its feminine draped collar is a great choice. But if you’re broad in the shoulders, be careful to keep the detailing neat and minimal.
2) The Fastening
When it comes to keeping you and your bump cosy, finding a coat that closes over your curves is a must! Wrap coats with self-tie belts work wonders, but why not go one better and invest in a double zipped style like Our Khaki Maternity Parka. You can adapt the fit for before, during and after pregnancy.
3) The Fabric
The trick to creating a streamlined silhouette is to choose a coat with just the right drape. Our woolen coats are softer than ever this season, made in a premium blend of Italian lamb’s wool and cashmere, with a silky inner lining – the ultimate winter luxury!
4) The Length
In the length department it’s all about what suits your shape. A ¾ length coat like our Wool & Cashmere Two Tone Maternity Coat will cover your hips and thighs, and is perfect for showing off long legs. If you’re more petite, long coats may tend to swamp you, so opt for a slightly shorter style – mid thigh is perfect!
5) The Style
When it comes to style – the world is your oyster! A girl will never go wrong with a classic woollen coat, but there are plenty of other options out there. You could work a continental après ski vibe with our brand new Maternity Puffer Jacket, or try urban utility chic with our Khaki Maternity Parka – anything goes!
Happy shopping mamas!
