It’s officially the first day of winter and if you haven’t already done it, I’m sure you’re thinking about updating your coat. And this season there’s definitely plenty of options to choose from.
I love shopping for coats as they’re such a statement piece for the cooler months that I always endeavour to find one that’s a bit out of the ordinary. It’s a personal mission to track one down that’s an elevated take on the classic winter coat whether it has interesting finishing details or is in a striking colour.
There’s also the matter of deciding which silhouette works for your wardrobe. I love a big woollen coat I can snuggle into but I’m also quite partial to a trench. I wore the above trench to Fashion Week and loved the beautiful embroidery on the back and also the fact it’s an versatile topper that can be worn over myriad outfits. If I’m going to be wearing something constantly over several weeks I like to know that it’s also ultra wearable and is quite chameleonic in nature in that it can easily be worn to several different occasions or settings. Also, it goes without saying that it has to keep me toasty and warm on those days when temperatures drop.
It’s time to up your coat game. Shop my top winter coat picks below.
