As the temperature drops and the sky opens the need arises to wrap up warm, in the all time winter staple; the coat.
This season sees a whirlwind of coats, that just like colours, are coming in an array of different styles and shapes.
Most notably perhaps is the overcoat. With masculine tailoring, double breasted and broad shoulders these versatile pieces bridge the gap between classic day to night wear.
Designers such as Aquascutum, Paul & Joe and Sportmax took their inspirations from the overcoats silhouette, to create an all round winning winter wear piece.
After searching high and low I have compiled my top winter warmers to share with you and hopefully inspire. After all, a coat can last a lifetime if chosen wisely.
So this season be wild with your colours, be whimsical with choosing silhouettes but most importantly - be warm. Because who said you can’t stay snug without compromising your style?
