About the Shoot

If there’s one item worth updating at least once a year, it’s your winter coat. Whether it’s for your commute to work or a weekend stroll through the park, a strong piece of outerwear makes an instant style statement.

The first thing to consider when choosing your winter coat is how it will sit alongside your existing wardrobe. Versatility is key here, so if you spend the working week suited and booted in blacks and navies, opt for a neutral colour such as beige or grey that will compliment your casual weekend wardrobe, too.

Our summers may be unpredictable, but you can be certain that winter will bring the chill. Therefore, practicality is the next factor to bear in mind when it comes to making this annual investment. Don’t be put off by thinner, more lightweight designs when it’s cold – these are the perfect styles for layering.

Whether you follow trends or not, the best thing about coats is that there are so many timeless designs. From the classic pea coat originally worn by sailors to the trench that was favoured by the WWI military, coats often manage to stand the test of time. So if you make the right decision, you’ll own it for a lifetime.

With so many shapes, sizes and colours to choose from, it’s safe to say that finding your perfect outer layer is a multilayered task. Still can’t decide after reading our edit? Who’s to say you can’t have more than one winter coat…
