The runway shows of 2017 featured a bit of everything, from velvet suits to floral boots, and while many designers went for eye-popping attention, the season also offered a healthy mix of classic, timeless looks. And the results are popping up everywhere as the fashions make their way out of the magazines and into the mainstream.
And, as the temperature starts to drop, women must make what is often their largest seasonal investment- a fall coat. Coats are key wardrobe players throughout the fall and winter; it's a daily staple piece that needs to be practical, fashion-forward, timeless and versatile.... all at the same time.
A couple of trends to keep in mind, and how Ellie Kai has you covered. (Literally, covered in a coat!)
- Color, color, color- Like the runway, we've been eyeing neutral colors and classic detailing a la the Tiffany Coat and Tie Coat. These are two #timeless options, that will compliment and elevate any look.
- Cocoon coats– A cocoon coat (or jacket!) keeps its silhouette even as the body moves. This dramatic style was shown on the runway in attention-grabbing fabrics, prints and textures, from classic plaids to modern jewel tones. Is this your style? We suggest you check-out our Open Jacket in versatile (and washable) faux suede.
- Stand out from the crowd– Vivid photographic collages continue to be all the rage. (Thanks, Instagram!) A bright coat add a distinctive 'throw-back' element to any outfit. Cue, the Jackson Coat in rich navy-- and prepare to turn heads and make a statement when entering any room.
