Will Overcoats Be In Fashion This Winter?

At The Overcoat Importer, we stock a wide range of exclusive overcoats for both men and women. Over the past few months, our team has been asked many times whether or not overcoats will be in fashion this winter.

We are pleased to confirm that overcoats are definitely a hot item this season!

Overcoats have been spotted on the international catwalks this past northern hemisphere winter and are considered by fashion experts to be the must-have item for winter 2021.

Below is everything you need to know about this trending fashion item and how you can style your new overcoat.

What Styles Of Overcoats Will Be In Fashion?

Long, flowing overcoats have been gracing the fashion magazines lately. It doesn’t matter whether you are male or female because they are perfect for everyone. At the moment, overcoats are being worn unbuttoned and appear to have been simply “thrown” over the other clothing.

They are also being worn with knitted accessories, such as beanies, chunky woolen scarves and gloves. They also look really stylish with a pair of modern sunglasses as this gives you an elegant yet sophisticated look.

Since overcoats are mostly collared and come in neutral colors, they have the advantage of going with most things that you probably already have in your winter wardrobe. They also add an element of formality to any outfit and can therefore easily be worn to a formal function, to work or on a date night.

Most overcoats are rather lightweight and are either unlined or have a very fine, silk lining. This makes them warm enough to withstand the cold winter temperatures in South Africa but still lightweight enough to not make you feel as if you are being weighed down.

How To Style My Overcoat With My Current Winter Wardrobe?

One of the most popular ways to wear an overcoat this winter season is to pair it with your favourite, designer jeans. It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of skinny jeans, stressed, straight, boot cut or boyfriend jeans because an overcoat can be worn with all types of denim.

When worn with stressed or boyfriend jeans, your overcoat will provide a wonderful contrast between the slightly messy and relaxed nature of your jeans and the formal and smart appeal of your overcoat. Skinny jeans and an overcoat also work very well together.

Many of our customers here at The Overcoat Importer enjoy wearing this combination with a pair of knee length or ankle boots. If you want to create a trendy, street look, you can wear your overcoat with a graphic tee or sweatshirt, your favourite jeans and some good quality sneakers.

Top the outfit off with a quirky hat and some sunglasses and you are ready for anything!

Of course, an overcoat looks amazing if it is worn with smart-casual trousers or a suit for work. At the end of the day, with overcoats you can really use your imagination and your own creativity to craft the perfect winter outfit.

What Are The Winter Fashion Colour Trends For 2021?

Winter 2021 will see some very interesting colour trends. As usual, like with every winter, there will be plenty of deep, rich and warming tones and hues.

Mustard yellow is a particular favourite this year and a benefit of this shade is that it is not too bright and gives more depth than lemon yellow, making it flattering for most skin tones.

We also expect to see a lot of wine red and blush pink this season. These two colours work very well together and are great when paired with the classic winter colours of black and dark grey.
