How to Choose a Winter Jacket

Of course, the climate where you live will dictate what type of jacket or coat you need.

This year bright colors are trending in long jackets and trench coats. Although, I would tend to choose something timeless that isn’t too trendy and that I won’t get bored with. Black, camel, brown, and gray are colors that suit most women and that coordinate well with other clothing colors in your outfits. But go for bright colors like red, burgundy, and olive green if that fits your personality and lifestyle.

Jackets, unlike coats, go past the hip and can be as long as mid-calf. Choose a coat length that suits your lifestyle and wardrobe.
