5 Must have jackets this season
Get ready to say “brrr” a lot, because winter is on its way! And although we miss the heat of summer, there’s one thing that makes it (almost) all better – all the glorious coats and jackets we get to dress up in this season.
In the trenches
A trench coat ticks all the boxes; it’s classic, chic, trans-seasonal and goes with everything you own. And while you can never go wrong with a trench in camel, why not give a pretty pastel a try? Ice cream colours are all the rage for women this autumn and will bring a lightness and fun to your winter wardrobe. For the men, a more muted tone or patterned trench can give you an interesting twist on the classic camel.

Wild and woolly
A good quality, woollen overcoat is the undisputed king of coats. If you only have one coat in your wardrobe make it this one, it will keep the cold at bay while finishing off any winter outfit. The oversized trend continues for women’s coats this season, so a larger look coat for the ladies will make a bold statement and again, you can’t go wrong with a pastel pallet. For the men, try a twist on the classic wool overcoat and go for a different shape, like a wool bomber, to give your look some edge.
All about the Bomber
Without question, the bomber jacket is one of the top trends this season. Perfect as the top layer, a wool bomber will be sure to keep you warm whilst looking street style cool. Play with textures and patterns or channel your inner Top Gun and opt for an earth or khaki tone. Covering off casual to smart a strong bomber is a must have for the autumn / winter wardrobe.
The ultimate men’s coat for that casual, cool vibe, the relaxed fit of a parka allows you to layer up underneath without looking too bulky. Choose a parka in a cool tone to give you the most versatility and ensure the sleeves hit you at the wrists so your parka doesn’t look like it’s swamping you. Dress it up with some blue jeans, brown leather boots and a navy jumper, or for a more casual look, style with fresh sneakers and a plain white t-shirt.
Detailed and dramatic
The devil is in the detail if you’re looking to invest in a coat this season which looks incredibly modern. Be it some gorgeous embroidery, a bold colour, an interesting collar or zipper trims, details add interest and draw the eye to your statement coat. Keep the rest of your outfit simple to set off your unique coat, styling it with some leather boots and tapered trousers in neutral tones.
