Stuck in a rut with your wardrobe? Look to the stars for winter wear inspiration
Winter coats are always a bit of an investment item. They’re one of the few garments in our wardrobes that have to be practical and serve a purpose rather than just look good. They need to keep us warm and dry throughout what can be a long British winter.
Some of us can find buying coats and jackets a bit tiresome as thicker winter coats can make us look bigger than we are, and some jackets can be hard to style and accessorise.
Often with coats and jackets, it’s all about the detail. Whether that’s the fastenings, hood trims or where the pockets are placed, it’s this detailing which can help you spot a jacket from three seasons ago or one that’s just come straight from the store.
Celebrities are often a good source of style inspiration, and the weekly glossy magazines can be very useful in deciding what you should be wearing this winter.
One celebrity who is always in these magazines is Alexa Chung. She’s always wearing the latest styles but manages to really make them her own. When shopping for a new coat it’s important to think about how you’ll wear it and what you’ll be wearing it with. Alexa manages to pair her outfits with chic boots or handbags to help create her own identity. It's always important to buy a coat that is versatile so you can accessorise to make it your own and stand out from the crowd.
Bank’s range of coats and jackets are all on trend and use the latest fabrics, fastenings and styles. It’s a great place to shop for the latest looks, with stock updated on a regular basis so that their customers are always never behind on the latest styles.
Bank sells several brands within their stores meaning that their selection of products covers all categories and styles with no compromises. This wide range of brands means you can head to Bank to find your next winter coat, but you can also shop there for the latest party dress.
One of the brands that you can find at Bank is Little Mistress. The popular evening-wear brand is aimed at making women feel feminine yet sophisticated with strong shapes but delicate detailing.
