Ladies coats and jackets are not only a great way to keep warm but also a really stylish addition to any outfit. They have all sorts of purposes including protection from the cold or rain or the finishing touch to an outfit making it suitable for a formal occasion.
What ever the reason for wearing a coat or jacket, it is worth choosing carefully as it has a huge influence on how you look and can make or break an outfit. Style, colour and fit are all key considerations when choosing a coat or jacket as well as the weight and warmth of the jacket depending on the season.
Ladies coats are usually thicker, warmer and longer than ladies jackets making them particularly suitable for winter. There are however a few exceptions such as the trench coat which is very light weight and offers protection from the rain making it particularly suitable for spring and summer and the evening coat which may light weight but very formal in style. The trench coat is a classic and versatile item of clothing that works with all sorts of outfits from work wear to casual. Ladies coats for the winter include duffle coats, pea coats, padded coats, leather coats, parka coats and full length coats, they can be either smart or casual or versatile for both.
Jackets can range from casual jackets to tailored jackets which are suitable for work wear or occasion wear. They are usually short in style finishing at or below the hip but it is possible to get longer three quarter length suit or formal jackets.
