Winter Trend: Toggle Coat
When the cold season kicks in, I guess, our normal reaction is to try and see if we can brave the weather with just wearing our usual staples – starts out with the not-so-warm apparel first until you don’t realize that you have actually layered about five to six different pieces of clothing because you just cannot get out of the house due to the cold!
I guess this is why coats and sweaters were invented for this season and the recent crowd favorite? Toggle coats.
This winter fashion is not only for women but for men too. No one is spared from the frostiness of this weather. So before it officially kicks in, I have decided to start looking for this coat so that I can save and get myself a nice one. While searching, I also had a chance to read through Whowhatwear.com’s website, to find out what are the most coveted toggle coats this season. I like the bright colors that they have featured. This is great especially since this weather really gloomy and sad. A happy color seen walking around the streets can perk up one’s mood.
I am in a lookout for a men’s toggle coat but to be worn by a woman – me. Like the boyfriend shirt, I love the comfort of the men’s size because it’s a bit oversized. Yes, I do a cross over from time to time so I kind of know what is the counterpart of my size in the men’s section. Resultly offers a few great toggle coats for men. I am eyeing the Forever21 toggle coat for men.
This will be slightly longer for me, which is what I want because it will cover majority of my butt (I know I am weird like that). Since it’s a darker side, I will not have a hard time pairing it up with whatever I have in my wardrobe but because it is cold, I am pretty sure I will pair this up with my combat boots.
Another toggle coat that caught my eye is this red Guess toggle coat. I might look like little red riding hood but definitely a better and sexier version. I like the pleat at the back, which gives a slight curve from the waist down giving an illusion of a short skirt. I think my little black dress will be perfect for this coat.
Looks like I found two coats that suit my needs – the men’s coat for days when I just want to be casual and boyish, the red toggle coat for those days when I want to be sexy and sultry.
I am sure, just like me, you girls also have your coats for days when you want to be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Yes, all girls are like that. Lol!
