As the temperature drops, your outerwear becomes more and more important. From commuting to each destination in your day to settling in for a day’s work at the office, you can drastically elevate your outfit with a considered jacket or coat. This guide will take you through the 4 trends that have influenced the Carla Zampatti coat and jacket collection this year.
Refined season after season, the classic Carla jacket is elevated for the 2021 Winter Collection through dramatic yet subtle split sleeves. As one of the key trends of the year, splits in jeans, tops, blouses and jackets have reigned supreme. In Autumn Winter ’21, the Celebration Jackets and the Classic Timeless Jackets feature a long split up the inner sleeve allowing extra movement of the arm, and also a unique design feature. Always ahead of the trends, a split detail has featured in seasons past and will most likely feature in future.
Outerwear does not have to be boring – you can utilise texture, and streamline fits to cover your outfit in an equally statement piece. A timeless option that has been present in the outerwear world for decades is classic tweed. Layered over a sleek outfit, a tweed coat or jacket will instantly add texture and intrigue and enable you to stand out in a sea of navy and black.
Wearing a belt with your outerwear selects will enable more versatile looks and outfits options – while also cinching in your waist to create an hourglass silhouette. This will create shape and enable you to transition and outerwear item to be worn inside. A number of different belt options exist – a classic leather belt in tan or black is always a wardrobe necessity, while an inbuilt belt means finishing off your outfit is carefree. The AW21 Collection features ponte coats with wide lapels and a fixed belt detail – enabling the coat to sit streamlined against the body.
One of the key trends this year is found in the jacket-dress; a long-line jacket that when buttoned up can be worn as a dress. AW21 combines this trend with expert tailoring and craftsmanship, utilising exotic feather detailing and mini silhouettes. Easily transitioned from day to night, simply swap out your slim pant for heels and a clutch for an enviable night-time look.
