Wrap up in style


Autumn is fast approaching and time to think about which winter coat to wear this year.  Hot trends for Autumn/Winter 2011 are Parkas, Fur Trim (Faux or Real), Heritage, Masculine, Fetish and grown-up 40's glamour.

I've picked some stylish options for petite, curvy or tall women which fit some trends for this coming season.

Tweed Coat

Starting with the Heritage Trend,  this tweed coat by Balenciaga would be a great choice, available at Matches Fashion.  It's smart and on-trend and it's slightly masculine style would juxtapose well with killer heels as well as ticking two trend boxes in one.  Add a belt for a more feminine sillouette.  This style would suit taller slimmer body types best but belted up would look good on curvy ladies too.

Cream coat with leather trim

Or for an overall more feminine approach try this beauty from Oasis.  Much more affordable at £95, this would flatter the curves of hour glass and pear shaped girls.  Also nods to two trends with the leather trim, grown-up and fetish.wax petite jacket

Or if you are more on the petite side, try this gorgeous wax jacket with faux fur collar, mixing practical with luxurious and working the Heritage trend.Faux Fur Parka

Finally, the essential coat/jacket this season is the parka.  Even wear it with your ball gown this party season or over a pretty silk day dress for some serious edge.
