Fashion Editor-Approved Winter Coats
October 28, 2019
This time of year calls for one major wardrobe decision, and that's what coat to buy. Outerwear is still the talk of the fashion world, so here's our guide to the main styles that the editors are all going mad for this season.
1) The Trench
It's a classic for a reason, but this year the trench coat has been brought back into the spotlight. It's the perfect staple for any minimalist but there are also a few modern designs doing the rounds if you want something updated. Stick to cream and camel to stay classy, or opt for a cream/tartan hybrid to give it a 2019 slant.
2) Teddy Soft
Shearling coats were giving us all the cosy vibes we needed last winter, and they're here to stay this season too. Look to pretty pastel colours to keep it fresh and feminine, they're perfectly paired with everything from denim to winter dresses.
3) Oversized And Tailored
Oversized will never fail to look chic. It also looks expensive, so it's a great silhouette to opt for if you want outerwear that looks like it has been pulled straight from the catwalk. Oversized tailored coats will give you that elegant, androgynous feel, perfect over workwear or to elevate your jumpers and jeans.
4) Heritage Check
Winter is always a great time for heritage fabrics such as tweed and tartan, and this year is no exception, with checked coats taking the limelight on the catwalk and the high street. Pick a tailored long coat to keep it timeless, or choose a shorter jacket if you want something a little more versatile.
5) Camel Chic
What's a winter wardrobe without a camel coat? This style has staying power, and it'll make any outfit look effortlessly elegant in a heartbeat. Choose a belted style to give it a feminine, sophisticated mood.
