Winter is coming!
And it’s bringing parties along with the snow. Whether it be Halloween, Christmas or any other occasion, dressing up must be your favourite part. The beautiful colours and fabrics appeal to everyone.
But in extreme cold, you have to protect yourself while not compromising on style. This is where jackets and coats come in. Now the coats not only protect you from the cold but also fashionably complement your outfit.
Therefore, in this article, I’m going to tell you about different styles of coats and jackets, how you can style them and where you can find them. So, without further ado, let’s dive in.
There are various types of coats you can wear and style with your dress. While a carefully chosen coat can complement your dress beautifully, a mismatched coat can ruin your dressing entirely. But worry not, I’m going to guide you through the whole process.
First, I’m going to enlist different types of coats, which outfits will work for them and which ones won’t.
Plaid coats remind me of cool nights by the fireplace surrounded by friends and family. But nowadays plaid coats are not limited to indoor parties. You can style them with jeans, hoodies and simple shirts.
Plaid has always been in fashion and it’s not going away any time soon. You can wear plaid coats to a party, a meet up with friends or even on a date. The choices are endless. However, you should always have the colour scheme in mind while choosing your outfit.
Darker colours go well with lighter ones. The contrast is visually appealing. You can either highlight your lighter dress by wearing a darker plaid or you can mix and match two opposite colours. But make sure one of them is light.
These types of coats are usually kept for date nights or meeting with friends. You can pair them with jeans and tights. There’s no wrong option with this coat.
You can wear a simple shirt underneath and pair it with this coat. Keep the belt open or close it. Both options will look great. And there’s no right or wrong colour choice with this one.
But I do recommend that you keep contrasts in mind. A dark coloured dress with a dark coat will make you unnoticeable. But a light colour paired with a dark colour will highlight your beautiful features.

A faux fur coat is perfect for those extra chilly nights when you want to keep yourself warm but don’t want to compromise on style.
You can either wear a long fur coat with a short dress or a short one with a long dress. It can be both with or without sleeves. It all depends on your preferences. You can choose to wear a full sleeve coat if it’s freezing outside. But, if the weather’s all right you can go in a sleeveless one.
Or you can wear a relatively thinner coat if the weather allows for it. Faux fur coats are usually worn with dresses and thigh-high boots. But you can wear them with jeans, skirts, leggings and pants. Pair them up with a dress or a shirt. Either works fine. To find out a flattering makeup look, that matches your outfit, click here.
People usually like lighter colours in faux fur coats and then pair them with shimmery dresses. While contrasting colours look visually appealing, there’s no wrong option with these coats. You can pair both the light and dark colours together or separately.
Long, oversized coats have been in the fashion industry for a long time. The comfort, design and colours they provide, make them the most popular choice in winters.
They can be either hooded or without a hood. You can pair them up with a skirt and thigh-high boots or wear them with a dress. There are no right or wrong options. You can also wear a hat or beret for a sophisticated look.
You can choose from a vast range of colours. Pick a bright coat with a darker colour dress or style light colours with pastels. There are no rules here. You can mix and match whatever you like.
You can wear them fully or drape them on your shoulders to show off your beautiful clothes. For a more comprehensive guide on styling your outfit, click here.
Hooded coats offer more protection from harsh winds and winter. They are thicker, padded and usually lined with fur. But if you’re wearing a dress you can’t show off much because they’re bulkier than other coats.
However, you can still flaunt your style with assorted hats, scarves and shoes. You can pair a light hooded coat with dark scarves and hats to create a visual appeal or vice versa.
You can also wear it with a warm shirt and keep the front open to show off your taste. If you’re wearing a dress then I recommend other coats, not the hooded ones. Because they don’t look very appealing with a dress.
After reading this guide you’re now in a much clearer space than before. Now you know how to party in style. You know which style best suits you and you have different varieties to choose from. From chic and mainstream to elite and sophisticated you can master any style.
But if you’re anything like me you’d want the same style but at a lesser cost. So fret not, you can shop these same looks and buy the same products here at the SEA-Malls Shop at a much lesser price.

Makeup is simply the best kind of cart! It takes as much precision as a digital or physical artist who works with paints and paintbrushes. With makeup, the only difference is that you are holding the exact level of precision in your eyeliner craft, together with eyeshades and makeup brushes. It is serious business, and...
