Evenly Coated

Fall has sprung and the time for heavy coating is here. The runways for fall Ready To Wear were filled with all the major trends, plaid, brocade and even floor length leopard printtrench coats

The brisk weather fall brings calls for coats that make a statement. A great coat is a necessity, like a stylish bag or stylish pumps and great coat can make or break an outfit. 
When shopping for a perfect coat pay attention to your body proportions. If you are short you may want to stay away from coats that fall below your knees, this will make you appear even shorter. Tall women can always get away with floor length coats because they will elongate your frame. When choosing a printed coat make sure it compliments your wardrobe, you want a coat to enhance the pieces in your closet not take away from them. 
If your fall clothes begin to look drab with all the charcoals, browns and black opt for a bright coat in a teal or burnt orange for a great pop of color. If you are a woman who loves to mix prints make sure that you choose a coat in a muted tone that will compliment all the prints you already wear. Camel is one of falls biggest trends and can work for every women, especially for those woman who like to take your bright summer colors into early fall. Camel and color, especially neon's always balance each other out.

No matter what type of coat you pick for fall just make sure you love it. Spending a fortune on such a fall necessity is never wise. Always opt for stylish and classic over trendy and expensive.

Great post, all of these coat ideas are great. I am looking for the perfect trench because I have one of those poofy north face coats right now and even though it keeps me really warm it isn't very chic looking lol
