It is essential to have one good winter coat this winter. Weather predication's are saying that it may be an extremely cold winter. Snow-bunnies will be happy to hear the coats are huge for 2013 and 2014

First and foremost, oversized coats are huge this season. The dropped shoulder coat is nothing new but looks as though it is most desirable type in the marketplace.

Huge hound’s-tooth prints and graffiti over basic black wool coats are a winner.

Here are a few tips to consider when out to purchase a new coat.

  • For extra warmth make sure that the buttons, snaps or zippers set close together to keep the cold air from sneaking in.
  • Make sure the inside is loose enough to layer underneath with thick sweaters and vests to bring on added heat.  Lucky this year, the oversize coats offer ample interior space.
  • Some shorter jackets are stylish this season but impractical during cold weather. Save them for clear and crisp fall days. Go for ¾ or full length instead and keep the body heat from escaping.
  • Deep and insulated pockets are great for adding on warmth to gloved hands during extreme temps.
Good coats always contain three separate layers.   
  • The protective layer will keep the elements of rain and snow from seeping through.
  • The insulation layer blocks out the cold and wind. 
  • The breathing layer allows excess body moisture to evaporate freely without a barrier.  Without this the body will feel colder.
