Everyone needs at least one fashionable winter coat in their wardrobe. The chances are you will be wearing it every day, which makes choosing a nice one particularly important. The tips below are designed to help you to find a good quality, practical and nice-looking coat that you will enjoy wearing, without having to spend a fortune.
Shop during sales
The Black Friday sales are coming up soon. They are the perfect place to find expensive items like winter coats, at bargain prices. The trick to getting the best deals is to go online to your favourite retailer’s sites and make a note of the ones you particularly like. On the first day of the sale, get up early, go online and search for those items. If they are cheap enough, just click the link and buy them. The Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales provide you with a great chance to make a start on your Christmas shopping. You will pick up some nice, but inexpensive presents as well as get a better idea of what is available in the shops. This will really help you to find gifts for those people in your circle that you normally struggle to buy for.
Measure yourself before you go shopping
Before you go shopping take the time to measure yourself properly. The chances are that, over the course of the year, you will have changed shape quite a bit. So, it is always wise to re-measure yourself, each year. When you buy your coat, ensure that it is big enough to allow you to wear a jumper or lightweight jacket underneath. I know that sounds obvious, but you would be surprised by how many people forget to do this.
Style is an important consideration, but your coat must be practical as well. Ideally, you want to be able to wear it every day.
Before you go shopping think about how you are going to be using it. Doing this will help you to buy the right type of jacket. For example, if you are going to wear it for a long commute to work you will want to be able to button or zip it right up.
If you have already bought your winter boots, be sure to choose a coat that matches them. Look for one that fits in well with the style and colour of the rest of your winter wardrobe.

It is important to choose a coat that is cut in a way that flatters you and suits your sense of style. The advice in this women´s fashion magazine article will help you to quickly work out which cuts are likely to work best for you. Working this out before you go shopping will save you from trying on coats and jackets that are very unlikely to look good on you. Provided you follow the tips above you will have no difficulty in looking fantastic and staying warm, this winter.
