Glam coats are a guaranteed way of upping the ante this winter. With all things opulent and Baroque at the forefront of fashion, a glam coat in a luxe finish or embellished design is your best bet this winter. It’ll take your outfit from zero to hero, in an instant. Cover up this season with the following glamorous coats.
Take a cue directly from the runways and invest in an embellished coat. Sequins, beads, feathers - it’s all about the embellishment right now! Since embellished glam coats can often be quite expensive, like this $1400 Red Valentino coat from Farfetch, why not try updating an old coat by adding some embellishments on the collar and sleeves?
Lace is perfect for achieving a luxe look. On the lower end of the price spectrum, you can spend anywhere from $60-150 for stylish lace coats by Modcloth, Ryu or Kardashian Kollection. The Chloé lace-effect coat pictured here, however, will set you back close to $3000 (yikes!).
An eternal fixture on the glam coat scene, the faux fur coat will give your outfit an instant style hit. While it’s not the real deal, faux fur coats can still be on the expensive side of things (like $230 for the Topshop coat pictured here). However, some great bargains are to be found at stores like Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. If an overall fur look isn’t to your liking, you could always try smaller details like faux fur collars or sleeve trims.
A chic leopard print coat can range in price from $60 for a faux fur Forever 21 number to $530 for a Collette by Collette Dinnigan one at Net-a-Porter. If you hunt around stores like Topshop, ASOS, and Urban Outfitters, you’ll quickly realise that you don’t need to spend a fortune to look chic in this style of glam coat! Just remember to be smart and stylish at the same time.
The draped coat is perfect for working a softer, more relaxed look. A glam coat with a draped, open front is perfect for showing off any layers underneath. Choose a basic black style like this coat for $70 from Modcloth or try a more feminine chiffon style as seen at Topshop.
The fashion world is having a love affair with prints at the moment. A printed coat is perfect for making a statement. A designer Comme des Garcons or Yves Saint Laurent printed coat will set you back in the thousands of dollars but thankfully you can pick up much more affordable ones at Nasty Gal and ASOS.
Longer hemlines are dominating fall-winter fashion. A longline coat is a must-have this season. You could opt for a classic tailored coat or something along the lines of this Topshop trench.
The fit and flare silhouette is really having a moment. You can typically tell by garments being fitted on top and flaring out towards the bottom. This fluted skirt coat by Moschino Cheap and Chic is a flirty take on the trend but you can find more traditional styles of these glam coats at ASOS, Dorothy Perkins, and Modcloth.
Stand out from the crowd in a statement coat. It could be a statement colour or feature eye-catching details. In the case of this Pink Martini coat from Modcloth, it’s both. There are no real rules for buying statement-making glam coats – just pick whatever takes your fancy!
If you prefer your winter fashion a little bit more ‘out there’ then these glam coats just might grab your attention. What are your thoughts on the glamorous coat? Will you be wearing one this season?
