The best winter coats provide the perfect finishing touch to every outfit…
…so with it being mid October already, the girls and I have been road-testing this season’s collection of coats and jackets – biker-styles, reversible gilets, padded puffers and more. Interestingly we’ve all found a style we really love, so here we are, sharing our personal favourites!
Hope you like what you see!
SMITH & SOUL UNSTRUCTURED COAT
This lightweight coat is the perfect ‘throw-on’ piece and the oversized silhouette allows plenty of room for layering, if a bit more warmth is required. The neutral grey makes it very wearable and it looks just as great worn open as it does buttoned up.
Style with CHESNUT PANTALON, MANDY WOOL SCARF and TAUPE LEATHER LOAFERS.
SMITH & SOUL
GREY UNSTRUCTURED COAT £145
OAKWOOD LEATHER BIKER JACKET
I already own a black leather jacket, but this dark burgundy version is warmer in colour and literally goes with EVERYTHING. I also love how it adds a bit of attitude to a pretty dress!
Style with TIFFEN DRESS, BURGUNDY CROSSBODY BAG and TAUPE ANGIE CHELSEA BOOTS.
AUBERGINE LEATHER JACKET £230
OAKWOOD LEATHER QUILTED JACKET
As someone who really feels the cold, I need a toasty warm jacket from autumn onwards. This padded leather version is not only super stylish, but it features an insulated layer that traps in heat. The high collar converts into a hood which is absolute genius!
Style with ORANGE CLASSIC CASHMERE SCARF, INDIGO BLUE TWO POCKET JEANS and GISMONDE SWEATER.
KHAKI HYPER JACKET £360
OAKWOOD WOOL JACKET
I think this winter gilet is the ultimate layering piece and I’ve worn it almost every day – over shirts, blouses, knitwear and dresses – since purchasing it at the beginning of the season. It’s reversible too which makes it doubly versatile!
Style with ZIGZAG STRIPE KNIT, NAVY CORD TWO POCKET JEANS and NL06 TRAINERS.
TAUPE LILY WOOL JACKET £205
COSTER COPENHAGEN PUFFER JACKET
This jacket is the perfect length for dog walks in the country, especially when I’m walking in long, wet grass! It’s incredibly warm, zips up to the chin and has the most fabulous leopard print lining.
Style with BLUE NOAM TOP, BLACK TWO POCKET JEANS and SANDRA BLACK TRAINERS.
SHORT BLACK PUFFER JACKET £169
OAKWOOD LONGLINE GILET
The moment this piece arrived in the shop, I had to have it. A year round investment piece I will undoubtedly live in and I love that it’s fully reversible so 2 gilets for the price of one. The deep pockets are an added bonus!
Style with NAVY CROSS COLOUR SWEATER, NAVY CATHY PANTALON and ALINA BLACK SUEDE BOOTS.
MUSHROOM LONGLINE HOODED GILET £288
