With Spring among us it's the perfect time to hit the sale racks and grab a winter coat for next season, and I know what some of you might be thinking, especially if it's along the lines of "but they're last season" and my response is not necessarily being that most women's coats including pea coats can be timeless and always in style. Not to mention a lot of the trends from last season will be still on trend for next. Capes, red, and fur seem to be sticking around for an encore, for example. Just remember to keep shape, fit and length in mind when shopping for next season's (and the there after's) coat, classics never go out of style whereas uber trendy pieces only last a season or two.
If you're not in the mood for a new winter coat, trench coats (also found on sale racks) in eye popping colors like seafoam, cobalt and emerald seem to be on target for Spring 2011. As well as unexpected textures like denim, chiffon, and leather taking 'plain' khaki trenches to the next level.
All this talk about sales makes me 'hungry' for some shopping.
