The search for your perfect winter coat is well and truly on, and this year there’s a plethora of plush choices. Keep the cold at bay with six must-have styles that form this season’s stand-alone outerwear staples; from puffer shapes to leopard prints.
THE MAXI COAT
From shin-length to floor grazing styles, the colder months are favouring longer pieces this season, most notably the maxi coat. Whether it’s in classic camel or a sweet blush pink, the piece provides the perfect street style statement when it comes to wrapping up.
Unpredictable winter weather calls for the solace of a plush, puffer jacket. Staving away the biting cold and keeping you protected from those spontaneous showers, the puffer’s silhouette isn’t just practical, it’s stylish too. Hailing from 90s silhouettes, it’s shapeless androgyny is winning fans this season.
THE FAUX FUR COAT
Faux fur is timeless with forever luxe appeal, making it a given as a winter winner. Perfect for those day to night affairs, keep your soft-to-touch outerwear casual with coated jeans and a tee, adding high impact to a LBD and heels pairing at night. Cold weather party goals achieved.
Formally the humble parka of the 90s, the low key outerwear staple has serious smart/casual appeal and is a popular choice with the style set this season. Uplift the classic coat with pops of colour on your faux fur- a snug statement for winter.
THE MILITARY COAT
Drawing on the elegant structure of the military silhouette, woolen mix coats are given a tailored finish with double-breasted details, epaulette-like shoulder pieces and elongated lengths. Keep it classic with a new season palette of navy or khaki, feminising the look with a floaty dress pairing.
THE LEOPARD PRINT COAT
Fierce animal prints are making the boldest of statements this autumn and it’s time to get on board… any trend loved by Kate Moss, is a trend loved by us. Think longline coats made powerful with leopard patterns or pieces lined with faux fur (like Alexa Chung) for a slice of textural interest. Rawr-some indeed.
