Ladies Winter Coats- My Go-To Vintage Coat

How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was super chilled as I’m saving up for my birthday and…oh, who am I kidding, it was too damn cold and I was in major hibernation mode! Speaking about the further dip of temperatures in Berlin, I have to say wearing a statement winter coat does help to soften the icy blow of the windy weather. This season, when it comes to outerwear styles, there are a plethora of ladies winter coats to choose from, they include The Trench, The Statement, The Faux Fur, The Maxi and The Military. In my upcoming posts, I will tackle a few of these styles and for today My Children, I’ll start with The Statement. Continue Reading…

When I want a statement coat, you know- that coat that enters the room before you do-the one you want no one to have, I go vintage. It’s that simple. Luckily for me, there is a fab second-hand store called Humana, and its my g0-to store for ladies winter coats. They have such a fab selection. If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know I’m a vintage fanatic and wrote an article giving tips on the best ways to shop vintage.

Anyhoo, I bought the below vintage jacket a few years back and still get the same heady rush when I slip into it-

I always feel super theatrical when I put on this jacket, it’s hard not to- it’s black, has a dramatic ruffled collar, longer at the back and shorter in the front, the embroidery, the floral-like embroidery…

I’ve already given tips on how to shop vintage, but in addition to those-

3 Tips when Buying Vintage Ladies Winter Coats

  1. At the risk of repeating myself, bring different sized belts along with you. Some of the jackets you’ll try on will look more flattering with a belt. Take my jacket for example, when I want a more hour-glass figure I wear this thin statement belt and when I want to be footloose and fancy free, I don’t.
  2. If you’d like to buy a vintage fur or leather jacket, Fashionista wrote a great article on what to look out for.
  3. Personally, at the moment I wouldn’t buy a vintage jacket online unless it was oversized as F, but for those of you who are Browse Happy, when buying your vintage jackets online- make sure the site is run by a credible source. Furthermore, any product you have your beady eyes on should include the following- full measurements, lots of pictures (giving you an idea of every inch of the jacket!), a stress-free returns policy and a secure payment system.

What I also love about this lightweight ladies winter coat is because it’s not fitted, I can bundle up big time underneath, so I can wear this jacket from early autumn to late autumn. When it gets to the thick of winter, I lean towards my jackets with heavier inner lining and fabric.

PsssST, I’m still doing my #StyleInMotion series but funnily enough, I am getting more views and engagement when I publish my videos on Instagram. Has anyone had the same experience with their video content?

So guys, what is your go-to outerwear piece at the moment?
