Always a sound investment, a new winter coat is where our thoughts turn as soon as the clocks go back. Whether it’s raining, blustery or bright and crisp, we have a coat to suit every weather, occasion and outfit.
The quilted coat
When the weather takes a turn for the worse, this is your best bet. Warm, water-resistant and with a hood, the quilted coat is a must-have for the British winter. Centigrade really nails this design, and this is definitely one to add to your list. Long and filled with feather and down, this coat will keep both you and your outfit dry on rainy days.
The faux fur
On icy days, nothing says sophistication like wrapping up in faux fur. Stylish and super snuggly, a faux fur jacket can make your go-to T-shirt and jeans combo stand out from the crowd. This longline coat from Rino & Pelle is not only on-trend for the season, but it’s relaxed fit means you can wear a thicker jumper underneath to stay warm.
If you’re not out facing the elements but still need that extra layer of warmth to your outfit, a classic leather-look bomber jacket is the way to go. Lightweight yet on-trend for this time of year, a bomber is a great option for days where you’re in and out running errands. Kim & Co’s Croco Pleather jacket can be teamed with jeans or dresses for an instantly sophisticated look.
Not quite a coat, not quite a cardigan, but hitting the ultimate middle ground between the two. Coatigans are a layering staple when it comes to your A/W wardrobe, working especially well with knitwear to create a perfectly curated look. For some added interest, this Centigrade number offers a chic checked print that’ll look fabulous worn with block colours.
Looking for a little something extra to wear under your new coat? Adding a gilet to your repertoire gives you a fantastic layering piece that instantly elevates your ensemble. This faux fur gilet from Centigrade is equipped with a hood, and the luxuriously soft fabric can make even the most casual outfits feel a touch more sophisticated.
