With the winter season upon us, it's time to shop for a new winter coat. With so many options on the market, Catherine Côté's Styling Tips will help you choose the one that will fit your needs.
A wool coat
A wool coat is best for professionals who move quickly from home to work and look to sport on this classic look. Before purchasing this type of coat, keep in mind that wool is a woven fabric and is not windproof. Invest in a down undercoat to keep warm on those polar days.
The down coat
Those who are cold by nature choose down jackets to keep warm during the winter. Choose a filling with a ratio of 90% feathers and 10% down for maximum warmth. Many companies now offer ethical (animal cruelty-free) options that are just as warm. Unlike the wool coat, the coat is very light.
Inspect the seams of the down coat. When the seams are sealed, they won't let air in, and you'll enjoy the maximum warmth.
