Believe it or not, coat weather is here. Whether it’s a statement jacket that will add a stylish twist to your everyday basics, or a classic coat to invest in now and wear for years to come, here are just some of our favourites from the new season collections.
Although the Great British weather has been flitting back and forth, we are officially in October, which means it’s time to hunt down a new coat for the season ahead.
Knowing what to wear during such unpredictable weather can be tricky. Do you opt for a t-shirt and thick cosy coat (that can be whipped off on the Tube)? Or is it all about the light multiple layers? Having a couple options in your arsenal is always a smart move.
For weekend strolls in the countryside, a waterproof parka or raincoat is super handy – Sportmax have some great modern styles and Barbour’s Greenway Beadnell Jacket is a classic for good reason.
For the colder months, a well-made tailored coat should last you for years. If you tend to wear a neutral colour palette, opt for a print or statement colour that will add a little something special to everyday outfits – we love Les Coyotes de Paris’ check coat and Theory’s elegant wool cashmere coat in dusty blue.
We’re all for this season’s love affair with shearling, which we're thrilled to see cropping up across a number of jackets in-store. Paul Smith’s navy aviator jacket is a stunner, and is the perfect transitional jacket with its extra layer of soft faux shearling and stylish boxy fit.
