With summer well and truly past, the time has come to secure the outerwear that will keep you warm through the coming months. The demands of the British climate need not come at the price of sacrificing style, however. Here we’ll take a brief look at some of the stylistic options for the coming winter. The long term trend of the last few years continues this autumn and winter with the prominence of the military theme. A few years ago, it was the turn of the trench coat to undergo a bit of a fashion revival. This year, different variations of the military coat are part of the hot look that will keep you warm. Structured military coats are carrying plenty of detail this season. A tailored design with metal buckles and oversized buttons will create a striking look this autumn and winter, as well as keeping off the rain. The beauty of the military coat trend is the potential for variety within this kind of design. While buying into this fashion you still have plenty of scope for individuality through selecting a military coat with unique buttons. The military ladder coat features bold horizontal banding across the chest that will make a feature of outsize buttons to full effect. With or without a hood, the military ladder coat is smart yet striking.Styled military coats are versatile, and can be worn with trousers and jeans as well as skirts and dresses making women's outerwear stylish and flexible. A casual look can be achieved by pairing a military coat with knee high suede boots. For a more sexy look, high heeled leather boots will be set off perfectly with a styled military coat. Stylish but practical, another military inspired coat is going to be a popular choice this winter. The fur trim parka provides an ample hood to keep moisture away from straightened hair, while maintaining a certain sense of style. Similarly, the snood hood coat offers that all important protection for styled hair from the elements. The snood hood coat is perhaps a little softer and feminine than the parka, and is often belted at the waist to enhance the natural female shape.
