I know the season is nearly over, but I couldn’t end the month of coats without discussing which ones were THE coats of the season…
The bigger the better with this trend. Big sleeves, dropped shoulders, big lapels and miles of fabric. Go oversized or go home!
Diane von Furstenberg, Stella McCartney
Whether you call it an anorak, a kagool or a cagoule, this tomboyish coat gives off a cool, feminine vibe. From the military to the Mods, this coat has and will stand the test of time.
Prabal Gurung, Topshop
Pink seems to be the new colour for outerwear this season and is a great alternative to your winter whites. All the styles in all the hues of the pink spectrum abound, so pick the one that suits you best and go for it.
Alice & Olivia, Rochas
Saint Laurent, Topshop
This coat is a classic, always has been, always will be. But that doesn’t mean it’s a boring. Coloured, printed or panelled, the trench is back in all kinds of new ways but with all its trademark style.
Whether you are going for the tough-chic look, or just want to tone down an overly girly outfit, the beauty of the motorcycle jacket is that it goes with everything. The sign of a true classic.
Like a big, warm hug, the wrap coat is cozy and chic. Pick a colour and a fabric and snuggle in.
DSquared, Matthew Williamson
Whether you prefer real, faux or vintage, fur is back in all the colours of the rainbow. From teddybear to pink mink, there is a fur coat out there to fit everyone’s style (and price range.)
Elizabeth and James, Karl Lagerfeld
Whatever you call it, the toggle/duffle coat is massive this season. From edgy leather, to traditional navy wool (and everything in-between) keep warm and dry in this classic naval creation.
