You know that feeling you have when you’re left out on something? As if you’ve been living obliviously happy in your own, apparently not-so-up-to-date- reality, while a whole lot of stuff has been happening around you. Well, thanks for the heads up you know. My dear Fashion friend.
As I’ve tried, and tried, and tried, and then tried some more to find out what’s HOT out there in terms of trends for 2014 fall – other than the ones already being in rotation for the past 2 years – turns out the elephant in the room was staring right at me. I was just too caught up in my own quest to stop and smell the coffee you know. COATS for 2014 ladies. That’s what we talk about today, and how the latest coat-fad in town right now is: forget buttons. Forget them altogether when it comes to this season’s coats. WRAP COATS are the IT coats of the season. That’s not to say we’ll all be strutting the streets in long unbuttoned coats like some Highlanders (although why the fuck not, if it floats our boat?), but we’ll instead literally wrap them around us with belts of all sorts. What do we have then? A very, very, very effortless and chic somewhat 70’s look in oversized coats – camel being HOT! HOT! HOT! still – with massive collars, and obviously no buttons. The beauty of this look lies exactly in its effortlessness and the easy-going vibe it has, especially if we’re wearing long coats. Like knee or over the knee long.
The look is as much chic as it is classy and elegant when paired with office wear. Or it can be hobo-chic when worn with sneakers, beanies & BF jeans. Not to mention it keeps us warm, and allows so many layers underneath it’s perfect.
Without further ado let’s indulge into some street style inspiration… 😉 Frankly I have no idea as to why I’m so bloody surprised this is happening. It’s certainly not a new coat style. Not the first time women ditch buttons for belts. Not the first time I’ve ever seen or wore such a coat myself.
I guess making it official and realizing it’s a pretty darn clear trend per se for 2014 fall is what made me act all ‘what the hell? where was I when this thing took off?‘ Er… here. It all comes to show us that we never really know when a look – as ‘whatever’ as it may be – could one day just turn into a season trend!
