Sartorial Investments: The Best Autumn-Winter Coats To Wear All Season Long
Coats are arguably the most important fashion purchase of your autumn-winter wardrobe, so it’s worth choosing one you’ll reach for again and again. Whether you swear by a cocooning wool coat or find endless comfort in the foolproof puffer, we can all think of one failsafe style that has seen us through the coldest months. And now that the temperature is beginning to plummet, there’s no better time to find your new favourite investment piece.
THE WOOL COCOON COAT
Working for all occasions – however casual or smart – a wool coat is the easiest way to add a touch of elegance to your outfits. This winter, our favourite iteration (the Lola) comes with dropped shoulders, an enveloping style for wrapping up and a relaxed silhouette that offers a flair of nonchalance when layered over basic tees, chunky knits or trapeze dresses. Whether you opt for the soothing oatmeal hue or a classic black, the Lola will remain in your outerwear repertoire for the seasons to come.
THE WATER-RESISTANT HERO
When it comes to bracing the elements, combat the rainy season in style with a coat that can offer you the utmost protection. A transitional-dressing ally, our Thea Coat is designed in a sumptuous shade of camel with bonded seams and a large hood to shield you from the rain. Set to elevate your everyday looks, make this coat the companion to leisurely strolls outside; just throw on a comfy sweater, a pair of leggings, and durable boots – you can leave the umbrella at home.
THE ULTRA-COOL BIKER
There’s something undeniably cool about a biker jacket, especially when it’s brought to life with faux fur. Accessorised with oversized lapels, silver buckles and a slouchy fit, you can add a tougher edge to any outfit by throwing one of these on top of your look. Maximise on its rebellious feel by teaming it with playfully short skirts, slogan tees and heavy-duty boots, or a thick sweater, straight jeans and chunky loafers.
THE LUXURIOUS SHEARLING
The shearling jacket speaks to a nostalgic sense of glamour that never goes out of style. Perfect for adding a punch to casual separates or throwing over eveningwear, it adds a touch of luxury and playfulness to any outfit. The Hema, a signature style of ours, comes with a unique patchwork of sheepskin in varying lengths and is reimagined each season in an assortment of rainbow hues. It’s a show-stopping forever piece that’s bound to turn heads.
THE TIMELESS TRENCH
No wardrobe is complete without a well-crafted trench coat. Versatile, practical, and lightweight, there’s no better style to invest in to combat changeable weather. And it’s not just for trans-seasonal styling; in fact, a good trench will see you through almost any occasion, in any season. The Riley has all the makings of a classic investment; see its beige hue, double-breasted fastening and a tie belt, perfecting for cinching in its relaxed silhouette. It’s the ideal complement to a dressed-up occasion look and will elevate even the most straightforward T-shirt and jeans combination; you can take comfort in knowing it’ll always be on-trend.
