3 tips for finding the right winter coat

This winter, coats are the one piece that stands out from the rest. Céline Jeandaine (Head of women’s style at American Vintage) and Olivier Richaud (AMV men’s and women’s stylist) have given us three tips for choosing the perfect coat.

#1: Go for colour

“It’s all about nuance. Try a subtle bright colour that will brighten up or soften your winter outfits,” they recommend. The good news is that at American Vintage, we work hard to offer exclusive colours every season. The hardest part is choosing which one you want to add to your wardrobe.

#2: Size up

“Don’t hesitate to go a size up, so you can add layers,” they explain. If you’re wanting to take more risks, try picking from both the men’s and women’s lines and play around with colours and materials.

#3: Choose soft materials  

“They give you the right amount of cosiness while staying light and giving you freedom of movement.” So what’s the perfect piece? The puffer jacket, in this season’s new pop colours.
