How to stay stylish in the cooler months

Winter temperatures are dropping, which means it’s time to layer up with stylish outerwear that will keep you warm on the coldest of days. It’s a good idea to have a few coats or jackets in your wardrobe at all times, as you never know when you might be caught out in the cold unexpectedly.


What type of coat is right for you?

11 Degrees offers a variety of jackets and coats that provide you with the warmth and protection you need. Consider your climate when choosing what type of coat is right for you. If you live in a colder area, chances are you’ll want a heavy winter coat, while those who reside in milder climates might be more comfortable layering with a hoodie and a jacket. Regardless of where you live, having a stylish winter coat in your closet is essential. The right jacket can complete an outfit and give off an air of confidence.

Outwear trends for AW21

Winter styles for 2021 are very diverse, which means you will find lots of different combinations of materials and garments available on the market. If you want to take a note from runways across Europe, go red! Red is big on the AW21 runways and super easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. Pair a red coat or jacket with neutral pieces and you’ll turn heads wherever you go. Nothing will brighten up a gloomy day quite like it! You’ve probably been noticing on the street that puffer jackets are big this winter. They’re a recurring classic, and they’re back better than ever. Play with texture or colour for a bold twist on the traditional. If you’re not ready to try a puffer just yet, opt for a hybrid. Plaid is still a staple for the cooler months. If you’re not in the market for a fully patterned outfit, buy a simple black or grey coat and then accessorise with plaid scarves and gloves. They’re perfect for keeping warm and look great too!


Remember to layer up

Layering is not only the best way to stay comfortable throughout busy days, but it can help diversify your wardrobe, as you can switch out one layer for another. Unlimited outfit combos? Yes, please! Wearing multiple lightweight layers means you needn’t be left out when your co-workers go out for happy hour after work; remove an outer layer (or two), and voila, you have two outfits in one. When putting together a look, think about choosing pieces that are easy to mix and match.
