  • Nylon, taslon - For the sturdy effect, protecting one from winds and chills such as ski jackets and wind cheaters, nylon is the best material. It is usually lined with insulating materials that do a great job of keeping one warm and dry and hence can be easily worn while remaining outdoors.

  • Fur- A luxurious option with a very soft appeal, fur is one material that is catchy and at the same time effective for woollen wears. Faux fur is an option that can be preferred over fur for a brilliant shine. Fur coats are usually preferred by ladies and kids who find them really amazing.

The next thing to keep in mind is the purpose for which the coats and jackets are being worn. For example, different kinds of jackets will help to serve the purpose in different temperature ranges.

  • Cold weather upto -10 degrees- Parka’s do the best job of protecting one in cold temperatures ranging up to -10 degrees Celsius. Their polyester fills with quilted lining does a good job of insulation. In addition, they look trendy on all kinds of outfit.

They can also be worn during rainfalls and in skiing sports.

  • Oversize - When it comes to woollens, this is the area where everyone can play with. Oversize leather jackets, overcoats and parkas actually look stunning. Their size is the reason that makes them look cuddly and cute in style. Oversize jackets look adorable with a flaunting appeal.

Colours speak a lot

When it comes to woollen wear, the only options that people know of are black, brown and greys. These definitely do wonder for jackets and overcoats, but there is no harm in playing with the palette for a vibrating dash of hues. Instead of black, one can go for navy blue and instead of browns; a burgundy could do a good job of highlighting a vivacious shade. Experiment with colours to get that perfect appeal, ideally matching the mood of the occasion.

With these simple tips, one can easily select a jacket or an overcoat which suits their personality and also gels along with their taste.
