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 winter coat to see you through this season and next. Looking for your ultimate match? Discover the key features and our top styling tips for maxi coats, wrap coats and double-breasted coats below.

  

MAXI COATS

A statement maxi coat is your chic and glamorous winter option. 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 season — think soft pink, muted grey and black. Add a matching beanie for relaxed styling, or dress up with sock boots and drop earrings

WRAP COATS

The most classic of the winter coats, a wrap coat 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.

DOUBLE BREASTED COATS

The double-breasted coat is perfect for evenings out and office duties. Structured and tailored, this coat is 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.
