Your new mantra for this winter should be to stay warm and look elegant. And the best way to do that is by making an investment in buying stylish winter coats. But, before you go buy a branded new coat, it is best to know which designs and patterns are running in todays fashion. This year, coat designs are more on the flamboyant side with a more vivid and brighter color scheme. Although you should buy coats in primary shades such as tan, brownish and black, a wine red color or electric-blue shaded coat can immediately brighten up your night outfit.

The fashion trends this season clearly point towards more voluminous figure in coats with a focus on elaborations. You can choose from collarless coats in shades like midnight blue, charcoal and gray to pea coats trimmed with faux fur. If you are looking for something more elegant to wear for a party, then you must select coats which are made from leather, brocade and jacquard material with shimmer.
