Look for real wool
When investing in a woollen coat, it´s important to make sure that the coat is made with actual wool.
“It doesn´t need to be a hundred percent, but look for a high wool quality to ensure both insulating properties, comfort and sustainability”, Kjøde says
While all of Dressmann´s woollen coats are made with at least 40 % wool, they still cost less than 200 $.
Here´s seven affordable accessories that work great with a woollen coat.
Choose your pick
In addition, the coats are all in a favourable mid-length style, and you can choose either double-breasted or single-breasted.
” The double-breasted coat is a bit more dressed-up, and has a classical elegance to it. The single breasted ones have a more relaxed look, which works great with a suit, but also sneakers or jeans, Kjøde says.
Frozen hands? Pair the woollen coat with leather gloves.
Regarding size, Johnson wants to debunk a common myth:
“It´s old fashion to think that you need an oversized coat to ensure room for layers underneath. Buy the coat in your actual size, and make sure it fits properly to your body. Anything else looks sloppy.”
Besides style and size, think about the colour, and hence what colour you want the rest of your outfit to revolve around.
To fit the rest of your wardrobe, the coats at Dressmann are all in suitable neutral colours – ranging from camel and navy to grey and black.
“All these colours are great. Personally, I’m a big fan of a navy coat. It´s a bit softer and not as hash as black, yet it´s a timeless colour that goes with anything”, Johnson says.
