As summer starts to come to an end and the temperature starts to drop it’s a good time to be thinking about your winter wardrobe and what you need.
Investing in a quality winter coat is a wise decision as it not only shields you from the elements but also adds a touch of sophistication to your outfits.
Here are a few of our favourite styles we think are worth having a think about.
Classic wool overcoat
The classic woollen overcoat is our favourite, smart, sophisticated and perfect for wearing over your suit. It’s a timeless and versatile style that can be crafted from high-quality wool. It also offers great warmth without compromising on style.
It is available in multiple different length styles and colours to suit your needs and if you have a bespoke one made it can fit you exactly right.
With whatever you’re wearing the woollen overcoat adds an air of sophistication to your look.
When the cold strikes a down parker can be your perfect go-to jacket. These jackets are designed to lock in warmth due to their natural insulating properties that come from the down stuffing. They are often also designed with practicality in mind with multiple pockets for storage.
If you are thinking of going down this route we would recommend looking for neutral colours that you can easily pair with all outfits.
For those seeking a coat that will see them through formal and casual settings the trench coat is perfect for you. It’s a lightweight yet heavily designed jacket that takes all the best things from tailoring and puts them into an outerwear garment. When looking, try and find one that uses a waterproof fabric which will add to its uses. It’s another perfect example of extending your taste to beautiful pieces of outerwear.
Shearling lined jacket
For a more rugged edgy look why not opt for a shearling-lined jacket, this could be leather, denim or canvas.
It’s a much more casual wear piece that’s stylish but practical in the sense it will definitely keep you warm. There are loads of options out there to look at, it’s just about finding the right style for you.
When the weather is extreme then maybe it’s time to pull out the big guns and that has to be a down-filled puffer jacket to keep you warm.
There are plenty of styles, brands and options out there, some with hoods some without, some with storm cuffs and skirts for really harsh weather. Have a look online to find the perfect style for you.
Is there any other style of outerwear we think we’ve missed from this list that you think is a must-have for the winter weather?
