Behold! The best coats this winter!

By Linah Hashmi


There is nothing like a perfect coat. They are like a pair of shoes - You can have as many in your wardrobe and still can never have enough of them.  There’s just something about a coat that makes us feel so good, a different kind of feeling, besides just feeling warm. To me it is the best winter clothing. Be it femine, sexy, flirty, trendy, cool, chic or sophisticated - the right coat makes a statement, turns heads. You can pair it with anything over anything, a dress or trousers or…. nothing at all,  yes wear it like a dress, one of my favourite ways to wear! It is the final touch to your winter wardrobe that changes your entire look. I personally love coats with belts at the waist,  accentuates your body, gives it that curve. Here are my best must-haves this winter:

I’m crushing over capes this season so my number one winner had to be this Dolce&Gabbana cape coat in camel. How gorgeous is this..perfect flirty, feminine pretty and flawless. Falls over you like a beauty! Add to it that pony fur leopard print Miss Dolce bag! Bellissima!

Ah I love Burberry for it’s coats especially. This double-breasted trench coat in silk just stands out from other ones. Love the fact that it’s in silk, just gives it that shine and prestige feel, love the nude color and with a belt at the waist you can wear this like a dress! I would! Yes, Burberry never fails to impress me when it comes to their coats! Brilliant!



There’s nothing like a black fur coat! A must-have every winter and everyone should have at least one in their wardrobe!! This J Mendel fur coat is super hot! I love the leather bodice and the frock feel to it. Black is my favourite color so I just love the total black look on this model, the skinny pair of leggings, hot booties and a crocodile skin bag!

Speaking of fur, I just as love a fur coat in color as I do in black! Whether you’re honey-mooning in Paris or dining out in the heart of Manhattan, make a romantic statement in Alberta Ferretti’s to die for purple fur coat this season.

A touch of fur on an emerald coat, I’m in love with this coat by Derek Lam. Wear it over a long dress just like the model giving it that simple elegance look. What a beauty!

How about some fur and drama! Go glamorous in a  camel coloured Michael Kors fur coat!

And if you want that gothic look, then this black cape coat by Gucci is perfect. Wear it with dark lipstick – super cool super chic. So Gwent Stefani!
