5 of the most expensive coats

Quality is better than quantity. Very agreeable, especially when you purchase a coat…

You want to ensure you are purchasing a piece you can add to your wardrobe, that will be worth your cash and last you longer than a year. Though there’s nothing wrong with buying a cheaper coat, you will definitely notice the quality once the texture feels different or the stitching comes undone within a few months. You can afford quality coats at a fraction of their worth if you keep your eye on sales. Especially around warmer seasons, when nobody is looking to purchase a heavy trench or peacoat. But how much is too much?

Here are 5 insanely pricey coats. Which could pretty much buy you a whole new wardrobe or be a very generous downpayment on a new car. Not to mention what they are made of…

1. Dappled jaguar mink officer coat – look at that little cute mink below. Would you really want to kill dozens of those little fellas just to wear them? Seriously, this coat is priced at $21995.00 and i don’t see in any way how it could look flattering on any woman out there. (Not even Cruella Deville) Reasons why i hate this coat #1 it looks like a hot mess, no shape, and you pretty much look like a cow. #2 That much money could go into much much more. #3 The starting material looks much more cuter than the final project. Save the minks, drop that coat.

2. Zebra print ponyskin trench coat– animal print is in, but this is a little too much. Zebra print out of ponyskin?… If i had $7200.00 to drop on a coat, i’d much rather opt for buying the pony rather than wearing it on my back. Yuck 🙁

3. Azzedine Alaia double-breasted coat- this little coat is priced at $16529.00 and made of sheep skin. Sure most clothes use a sheep’s wool, which grows back on the animal. But sheepskin…

4. Altuzzara maple coat– this piece of coyote fur is valued at $21375.00. As i previously mentioned, killing animals to wear a coat is definitely not something i admire… Thoughts anyone?

5. Missoni pale rose python maxi coat– a little over the top wouldn’t you say? Especially when you stop to think you’re wearing a python…

If you like fur opt for faux and let animals keep theirs!

 So you be the judge, are these pricey pieces of fashion really worth it, or are the people making them just plain crazy? Share your thoughts below!

How to choose a coat to flatter your shape

Coats come in various styles, lengths and fabrics, just like women come in different shapes, size and personality. Not all coats look good on every shape, which is why it’s good to know various styles to find one which best accentuates you. Common body shapes are: tall, petite, full-figured, pear-shaped, and slim/athletic. Below I have listed a few coats and specified which body frame is best accentuated.

    • Trench coat- this style is a classic and many double as raincoats. Trench coats are a great fit for petite shapes, but belted styles are flattering on all shapes because they accentuate or help create an hourglass figure. They come in various lengths, but if you’re petite look for above the knee to avoid looking smaller.

 

    • Peacoat- this is a very popular and comfortable style. A double-breasted one with military-style buttons looks great on full-figured and pear-shaped ladies. It gives structure to the shoulders and balances a thick waist and big hips. Belted peacoats are also great at creating balance and accentuating your narrowest point, the waist.

 

    • Faux fur coat- a nice faux fur trimmed coat can look stylish and won’t make you look over-the-top like Cruella Deville. Perfect for the winter season and looks great on pear-shaped ladies. The faux-fur trim over the shoulders helps balance wide hips, and a neutral shade creates a slimmer appearance.

 

    • Short tweed coat-a short tweed style is a nice choice for a slim/ athletic build because the fabric adds a feminine touch. A fitted style will hug your slim figure and perfectly define your waist. For a more hourglass shape look for belted tweed coats to create curves.

 

    • Parka- parkas are great sporty option for the winter season and they come in various styles which work with all body shapes. Avoid very loose fitting ones which will leave you looking shapeless, instead opt for a faux-fur trimmed or belted style. Long styles look best on taller women.

 

    • Long trench coat- longer coats are most flattering on tall ladies. If you are petite or too curvy, this style might make you look shorter or thicker. If you have a tall and slim build look for belted feminine styles to accentuate your waist. Colorful or stamped fabrics will also look great on your figure, just try to avoid vertical lines.

Always check linings and fabric before purchasing to ensure proper fit and a long lasting coat. Occasionally, you’ll find a great coat for a bargain, but most of the time they are a bit pricey. If you can afford it, splurge because a great coat won’t date. Take good care of your coat by following proper cleaning instructions, and choose a coat that suits you! Forget what’s trending at the moment and flaunt your personal style 🙂

Purple boots

This weeks outfit is perfect for todays cold weather.

Stay warm in a classy black peacoat combined with skinny jeans and add a splash of color with purple ankle boots! Wear a hand crocheted beanie in neutral colors to top off your look and keep your head warm.
Purple boots not your style??? That’s alright, try an open-toe black ankle boot. When the main focus of your outfit is a classy peacoat or colorful shoe, don’t over do it with accessories and stick to simple and unique pieces like the earrings below.
