What to Wear Under a Long Wool Coat?
Long coats have this amazing ability to spice up your look. Whether you are wearing a dress or a skirt or jeans, it has got you covered. Do you know the fun part? They look as fantastic on a normal girl as they look on a model walking on the runway. So we can surely say it is a must for all the ladies out there.
If you are wearing it with a long flowy dress, make sure the coat length is aligned with the dress. It should not be shorter than your dress. However, if you are wearing a mini skirt or a mini body con dress, you are allowed to exceed some inches in your coat. Before we talk more about outfits to wear with long wool coats, let’s go through some basic styling tips:
Things to Know Before Buying a Wool Coat
- Buy Fitted coats: For everyone who is going to get a coat for the first time, pay special attention to the shoulders and then sleeves. Ill-fitted shoulders or sleeves will ruin your whole outfit.
- Get good-quality coats: Coats are usually expensive but they are a timeless staple. So instead of thinking of saving a few bucks, make sure you invest in good, high-quality ones as they will last for years. Cashmere, lamb wool and merino wool are generally more expensive but they will give a much more luxurious look than a polyester coat which will not just look but also feel uncomfortable because of its stiffness.
- Consider the level of warmth you want: The warmer you want to stay, the heavier should your wool coat be. For the harshest weather, it’s best to go for coats made from the same material as woolen blankets.
- Think of the style you want: If you’re buying your first woolen coat, it can be easy to get lost with so many options. So consider your priorities; do you want one with a hood or one without it? Do you want a single-breasted coat or a double-breasted one? Do you want a coat with or without a collar? All these questions will help you shortlist the best coat for yourself.
- Choose a coat that complements your body shape: While there are no restrictions on what you can and can not wear, certain types of cuts complement certain body shapes best.
Tips on Styling a Long Wool Coat
- Styling tip for petite girls: If you are a petite girl, pair your long coats with high-waisted pants. Go for a nicely fitted top and tuck it inside your jeans. In this way, you will be creating an illusion of longer legs.
- Create a leaner and taller look: Wearing a vertically striped t-shirt or pants is another great way to synchronize your body with the outfit and give it a leaner and taller look.
- Balance the saturation of colors: The color should go well with the dress. It should look flattering and snazzy rather than a misfit. For example, a beige coat over a black dress will look more appropriate rather than a dark orange or green one over a black dress.
