If you are looking to upgrade your coat selection with something a bit more fashionable for the season, below are a list of options that are popular this season.
The Check Overcoat
Heritage designs – and more specifically, checks – have been popular for a number of seasons, squaring up on everything from trousers and shoes to tailoring and knits. However, it’s on outerwear that such motifs offer the most bang for their patterned buck. Capable of turning what is a simple, classic piece of outerwear into a hero piece, a check coat is the easiest way to ensure you won’t get bored of your coat.
Whether you opt for Prince of Wales or windowpane, checks are also a great way of subtly incorporating colour into your wardrobe, or you can keep things monochromatic with a black and grey check which will wear well with basically anything. And a simple rule of thumb for styling: if the pattern is big and colourful, keep it in check by teaming with a more neutral outfit.
The double-breasted peacoat is nothing short of a smart-casual beast. Simply put, it’s one of those coats you can throw on and look instantly better, whether you wear it with distressed jeans and Chelsea boots, or tailored trousers and sneakers.
A navy peacoat is the ultimate go-to versatile style for the weekend that can be dressed up or down.
It’s wise to avoid second-skin fits when buying a peacoat, not just because going slightly oversized adds a dashing Heathcliff-on-the-moors vibe to your look, but also because it allows room for slotting a chunky roll neck or cable knit jumper underneath.
The Textured Coat
When winter hits in earnest, even the hardiest folk wish they could brave the elements in a coat that more closely resembles a rug. Thankfully, designers have got the message and this year you can wrap up in textured designs crafted from cashmere and corduroy, as well as tried and tested wools and herringbone.
If you don’t fancy shouting with bold patterns or colours, then choosing to express yourself with texture is an effective way of being stylishly cold. Why leave all the texture to the knitwear? Combine a rugged herringbone overcoat with a chunky Aran knit or fisherman’s jumper for added depth on your top half – and pair with selvedge denim and boots down below.
Opt for simple pieces underneath – a black roll neck and deep navy chinos perhaps – and throw on a flecked grey wool overcoat for a look both bossy and effortlessly cool. Swap out those leather shoes for some smart leather trainers, and you’re left with an outfit that can take you practically anywhere.
