You need to be cautious of ridiculous coats. Coats are wonderful things. They come in all shapes and styles depending on the season. In spring, a lightweight bomber will keep you warm as the cold breezes blow. In winter, a heavy parka or trench coat will defend you against the wind and snow. Yet, the diversity of coat fashion sometimes goes too far. If the fashion runway is any indication, some people are far more interested in making a splash than keeping comfortably warm. If you prefer extravagance to function, these designs will have you giddy with excitement. If you are of a more reserved taste, these gaudy ideas will make you cringe. I guess it’s all in the eye of the bolder. So look, you curious fashionistas, and see what you think of these strange, bold coats.
I can’t guarantee you’ll get much warmth from this design, but if you want an extremely slim silhouette give it a try.
You could walk around in the embrace of some multi-armed reptile in this unique puffa.
If you want a weedy, seedy look, then how about a brown coat covered in emerald green foliage?
When your fur coat enveloped your head, the clumps are too much. You look like a hairy monster.
Did I say hairy monster before? Well, there you go.
If you thought the 80s were notorious for excessive shoulders, have a look at this coat!
HANDS ALL OVER
It would take a pretty handsy person to wear this strange coat. Looks more like sculpture than fashion.
Do you want to stick everyone in the eye when you walk by? This is like walking around wearing the Iron Throne. Come on.
If you can’t decide between high and low fashion, why not go for both? Semi-formal is an ambiguous specification. Walk in with this vague coat in protest.
90s ALL THE WAY
You’re in the wrong decade ladies. Actually, neon magenta faux fur should never have been a thing, even in the 90s.
Would you like some beheaded teddy bears on your shoulder this winter?
You can tell a story with a coat, but if the story makes it impossible to leave the house, what good is the coat?
If all else fails, trap yourself in a birdcage and walk around like this is a normal thing in the fashion world.
Did you enjoy our journey through the bizarre world of ridiculous coats? Now, you know how many different ways people keep warm in the cold months. The question is, will you be wild enough to try one? (Please don’t.)— Scarlett Price
