There are at least 5 classic types of coats to which you should take a closer look before the real autumn colds come. Each of the coats comes from the distant 1850-1900, but, of course, in our time, the classic cut has undergone some changes. Let's move on a century and a half ago and see how the fashion has changed, which today offers us a huge selection of coats, and also choose the option according to your taste for this autumn.
The name of this coat was presented by Count Chesterfield at the beginning of the 19th century, who ordered a tailor to sew something like a frock coat. Thanks to him, the coat, named in his honor, became popular, and so far it has not lost its relevance. Pretty soon, the male Chesterfield was also transformed into the female version.
Today, the Chesterfield coat is an elegant fit, classic colors and strong lines.
In a certain sense, this type of coat “hides” the figure, however, allows you to create an extraordinary image. Clothes like caps were known in the Middle Ages - then it was a long hooded cloak. Closer to the middle of the last century, the cape became fashionable, and so far it has not been slowing down.
Today the cape is a free, often short cape coat that is great for everyday wear.
He has "military roots": from 1857 the jacket was officially included in the set of clothes for the navy of England. Initially it is a strict, dense coat of a simple cut.
Today, the jacket is somewhat “softened”, and the female version has acquired a new color, a different length and a slightly modified shape with an emphasis on the waist.
Wide at the waist, slightly tapering to the knees, the cocoon coat really justifies its name. It was especially popular in the middle of the last century.
Today, the cocoon is a fairly loose coat that exists in different colors, but retains its special cut.
A straight cut coat with memorable hanging loops and buttons “walrus tusk” first appeared in the 1850s, and after half a century, it became very popular among young people.
Traditional duffle colors are beige, blue and tartan, but today you can see a variety of versions from designers.
