Style Guide | How to choose the right winter coat

20 June 2020 

Winter is officially here to stay, so now is the time to invest in a coat that will see you through this season and next. We look at the key features and styling tips for maxi coats, wrap coats and double-breasted coats to help you make the right choice.



The most chic and glamorous winter coat is a statement maxi coat. Whether you're layering over a cosy knit and midi skirt or your favourite work-suit, a maxi design exudes a feminine appeal that will elevate any look. To avoid a style that overwhelms your silhouette, look to a coat with a self-tie belt to cinch the waist and create shape. For added polish, a faux fur collar is the most luxurious detail on a winter coat. We love neutral hues that will stay relevant every winter — think soft pink, muted grey and black. Add a matching beanie for relaxed styling, or dress up with sock boots and drop earrings


The most classic of the winter coats is a wrap coat. A wrap coat design fits and flatters every silhouette, no matter if you're curvy, tall or petite. Experiment with waterfall lapels for chic flair, or opt for a notched lapels for a more tailored look. Wrap coats in neutral hues will carry you through autumn, winter and spring — all you need to do is layer for the season. Wear yours with a floral midi dress in autumn and spring, and with denim and a chunky knit in winter. Our tip? Wear your wrap coat open for relaxed, casual styling and add the belt when dressing for the office or formal occasions.


The double-breasted coat is perfect for evenings out and office duties. This coat is the most structured style, distinguished by an overlapping front with symmetrical buttons. A double-breasted coat pairs perfectly with a fitted turtleneck and cropped trousers or black denim, depending on the occasion. Layer with a checked scarf and gloves for an ultra-chic winter look that will receive approvals from desk to drinks.
