Winter 2018 Manteau Styles

I am still wading through the backlog of photos from Christmas 2017 and will be for the next few weeks, it seems…but I do have this awesome photo of 2018 winter manteau trends! As expected, parkas are huge- there is an olive green one and a navy blue one..as is a shearling coat and a classic blue trench. Furry details are very popular, including a cobalt blue fur on the olive parka’s hood and an asymmetrical black collar on the navy parka. Silk scarves are shown with each outfit, and the olive parka is even shown with blue cut-off leggings!

Cap and Cape at Classic Car Meet

Classic car shows/meets are famous for the glamorous manteau styles worn by attendees (such as this..or this older one), and this one does not disappoint! Against a backdrop of some vintage 1970s cars, there is a thoroughly modern outfit involving a black manteau with plaid cuffs, sneakers, black pants, and a black cap worn with a red scarf. The latter is a very rare style and is always awesome to see!

The cape manteau in meaningful and lovely purple is worn with a pink sweater and a printed silk scarf framing black hair and bright red lipstick, which is itself a very vintage look. It’s nice to see capes going strong through 2017, and I hope they will continue to appear in 2018.

Red Applique Hoodie and Watermelon Cake

I am fascinated by that watermelon cake..I wonder if it is really watermelon-flavored! The style is incredible too- black snood pushed back to show off glossy red hair, the stylish Northern eye make-up, the gold bracelets and rings, and the red hoodie with the applique on the back, worn over a navy blue top (unfortunately, the rest of this outfit is not visible).

Smog Masks at the End of the Year Part II

The outfits in this post become more interesting and even trailblazing, despite the limitations of the smog masks…first, an-all black outfit with a pushed-back snood and a white fur-hooded parka worn open….

…then check out this puffy vest-like black coat with grey sweater sleeves….or maybe this IS a vest over a hoodie? The green and black scarf is crocheted, allowing the cool black blond-streaked hair to be seen…

Another interesting color combo…mustard yellow jacket, black and white striped tunic top (which matches the hair-showing snood!), blue jeans, and grey boots….

…and finally, the first time I have ever seen a Bart Simpson t-shirt as part of manteau style- with an open “urban combat” style olive green sleeveless manteau, laced-up tall sneakers, and a dark olive green scarf framing beautiful hair….love this combination!
