Give us coats, we want coats !
My new rubric is officially on ! Let us talk about fashion in its simplest device, in the street. Not THAT far from us.
Because winter 2013-14 has just begun, I find it is a good idea to start with our best friend during this time of the year (I know I am right. And I know exactly how excited you feel when you are thinking about the type of coat you are going to wear this year). Unmasked!
I am particularly enthusiastic regarding coats because some of this season can be really big, oversized and boyish, what I find enjoyable at the highest point. But, it does not necessarily mean that you have to choose these ones. The classical ones will always be there for you, no doubt about it ! As well as those in an officer mood.
First, it is quite important to choose the coat’s shape depending your morphology (I would say that it is something you always have to be aware of… no matter the type of cloth). The same with the color. But, it is obvious that you already know which one suits you better and which one makes you look like… (yes, you know). And the length. That is the point ! You can play with it and choose a two-size-more-than-usual coat being absolutely conscious of your act. So cheeky ! We love it.
Personally, I do really like wearing my coat wide open (even it is -5° outside…I mean…what is most important ? Maybe it could be related to my repeated cold state ?) Anyway. It lets people guess what you are wearing under and gives a kind of fluency to the whole look and to the silhouette as well. And this mysterious Sherlock’s look you get wearing it in this way… Benedict Cumberbatch knows exactly what I am talking about. British like often (you have to excuse my profound love for England and her adored London).
