The next time you head out this fall, don’t think of your outer layer as an afterthought.
You are the canvas and all of your layers of clothing, down to what you wear to keep yourself warm, each make up your finished fashion masterpiece. Everyone is truly an artist, so channel that creativity, visit the team at Christopher James and you’ll see what a few basic pieces you thought were utilitarian can do for your appearance.
A top coat, which is simply a lightweight overcoat, is the coolest look around this fall. It’s a perfect transitional piece as the colder weather descends and Christopher James in Fort Wayne has the best selections. Solid-colored and patterned options from Bugatti, for example, are all the rage for a second year in a row, says Christopher James Associate Oleg: “Bold colors and or patterns allow for versatility as well as a new look to some of our favorite classics.”
Stick with a timeless classic navy top coat if that’s more your style. Sure, top coats are historically worn over a full suit, but the selections we carry from Bugatti include one with laser cut edges and a zip-out vest lining that gives the coat a sporty flair while still holding its own with your suit. Pair it with jeans and a beer at your next tailgate outing and you’ll be a standout.
Our coats are meant to complete your look, but are also made to keep you warm. Stop in and we’ll show you selections made with a neoprene-like outer layer made from wool or for a more luxurious feel, opt for a top coat crafted from a blend of lambswool and cashmere. Cashmere is not only warm, it’s breathable, too. You’ll be ready for wind, fall temperatures — and the fashion runway, my friend!
As Oleg says, the top coat works for “a formal engagement or a night out.” See you at Christopher James soon as you consider (another? Your first?) top coat options.
