Manila's weather has been really bizarre as of late. It's been too cold! The temperature outside is pleasant but inside the office-- well that's another story!
We've been teasing one of our colleagues who brought her trench coat to work cause of the cold but she defended herself saying it's actually just a wind breaker. Her reply got me thinking. There are so many types of coats out there and I think it's high time we Filipinos got educated on their proper terms so we'd stop referring to everything as mere coats and everything else trench coats.
1. The Trench Coat
The Trench Coat is actually an optional piece of clothing in the British Army. It is a double breasted raincoat with ten buttons. It has since been a staple for every woman's wardrobe and comes in the most flattering colors.
2. Pea coat
3. Moto jacket
4. Down jacket
6. Utility jacket
7. Wrap coat
8. Cape coat
The cape coat is one of my favorite styles ever. Perhaps it is because it lends a sort of medieval feel to any outfit. This however can be very tricky to wear especially for people with full figures because the coat is not structured.
9. Military Coat
There you go! Ten most common types of jackets/coats for your information! Even if we live in a tropical country, it is always nice to address items of clothing through their proper names. Here's to having fun this unusually chilly season!
