Trend To Try: Belt Your Coat

Winter is officially here and while the freezing cold days and nights are enough to make you want to wear everything you own all at once… there’s only one key item you need now and we can’t get enough.

Enter the classic coat! Your winter-long wardrobe hero that gets more use than Netflix on a rainy day.

But here’s the twist, not only are we just rocking the classic coat, this season we are belting it up, one of our new favourite ways to re-vamp this timeless wardrobe piece.

Unsure how? Read on below for our top reasons for why we love belting our coat:

It creates shape:

Coats (while warm!) can sometimes be overwhelming on our bodies and are not always the most flattering piece… that’s why belting is a great way to create some much wanted shape. Place the belt around your smallest section, whether that is under your bust or around your waistline and you will instantly notice the difference.

It’s new and modern:

While we love our classic trench or double-breasted coat, adding a statement belt is a great way to re-vamp this sometimes tired look. A stylish belt instantly adds a fashionable edge to your style and with the right piece, can really make a difference to your overall look.

It’s a great way to accessorise:

Forget a statement necklace, adding a belt to your coat can transform a classic black style to something everyone will envy. Think chunky buckles, embroidery and even beading… it doesn’t have to be plain black!
