It’s a common fashion conundrum; you’re browsing the racks in your favourite shop and find a lovely winter coat that you just love. The days are still short and chilly, but Spring is just around the corner — sunny days coming ever closer!
The big question is, is it worth buying a winter coat so close to Spring?
The answer depends on a few factors, which we’ll get into in this article.
The weather in the UK is changeable, so you’ll need a good coat
Simply, you’ll never regret investing in a good winter coat because you’ll be reaching for it year-round — not just in the depths of winter.
The UK is renowned for its changeable weather. We have sunny days in February and snow days in April, so you never know when you’ll need to pull your cosy winter coat out from the back of your wardrobe.
While January and February are the coldest months of the year, most people will be wearing their winter jackets well into Spring. March and April still see chilly days, and a winter coat will be an essential part of your wardrobe alongside your transitional outfits.
A Good Coat is an Essential Part of Your Wardrobe
As we’ve mentioned, you’ll be grateful to have a lovely warm coat when an unexpectedly cold day crops up mid-Spring and you have to venture outdoors.
We get excellent wear out of our winter coats, usually wearing them every day between November and March, so it’s no surprise that they need to be replaced more frequently than other pieces of clothing. Like a chic handbag or elegant pair of shoes, a good winter coat is an essential part of your wardrobe, both in winter and year-round.
Strike While the Iron’s Hot
If you’ve got your eye on a particular coat, there’s every chance that it’ll no longer be available to purchase when the temperature starts to drop next winter. There’s much to be said for striking while the iron’s hot when it comes to fashion; don’t let a gorgeous coat that’s perfect for you be the one that gets away just because winter is nearing its end!
Some Pieces are Timeless
If you’re concerned about your new coat not being in fashion by the time next winter arrives, consider choosing a timeless piece. Black winter coats will never go out of style, so it may be wise to opt for a long, dark coat such as the Black Pony Funnel Neck Coat from Libra.
On the other hand, if you’ve developed a unique sense of style that’s all yours, your wardrobe will never go out of fashion!
You’ll Likely Bag a Bargain
The weeks during November and December is the most popular time for shopping for winter coats, which means that many pieces go on sale after Christmas as shops make room for Spring’s new arrivals. This is definitely true at Style Boutique! Keep an eye out for deals, and you may just nab a fantastic bargain on a cute new winter coat.
