It’s safe to say that summer is well and truly over now. While that does mean shorter days and colder weather, it also means that we can look forward to investing in a new statement coat or jacket for the season.
Outerwear is especially important for A/W ‘18. Seen dominating the catwalks, there’s a lot of emphasis put on stylish outerwear for this season. Of course, there are thousands of pieces that you can try, but it’s also important to have a few staple outerwear pieces in your wardrobe, so that you can dress for all occasions.
Read on to discover our top picks for versatile outerwear this season.
For in-between weather.
In the run up to the really cold winter weather, dressing appropriately in terms of both your look and your comfort can be tricky. Here are two staple styles that you can’t really go wrong with:
- Trench coat/Mac: The trench coat or mac is timeless, elegant and always stylish. Choose a neutral colour to ensure it goes with almost everything in your wardrobe. We love a trench coat in a classic colour such as black, navy or beige. To give your trench a longer wear time, try layering with a printed scarf and adding warm boots when the weather starts to get a little colder.
- Blazer: A blazer is a brilliantly versatile piece, and it’s one that you can actually wear all year round. For autumn, wear as a jacket with a simple top or blouse underneath, providing just enough warmth when you’re going from home to the office, or from the office to the bar with a festive outfit. When the weather gets a little colder, wear your blazer as a coat, by teaming it with a chunky knit jumper. For a stylish and coordinated look, go for matching pants to really pull your style together.
For cold winter days…
- Anorak: As the best option for super active and busy mums, an anorak can be stylish as well as practical. Lightweight as well as warm, if you invest in a stylish anorak this season you’ll quickly find it becomes your go-to for the school run, park trips and more. If you cycle to work or around town, an anorak will be your new best friend.
- Plaid coat: This is one of the most on-trend prints for this season, but the good news is that it won’t date either. Plaid is a classic print and so it’s always stylish, making a plaid coat a great investment piece. Think Tartan, Windowpane Check and Glen Plaid, this print will add lots of personality to your winter look. Find your best fit, from tailored to boyfriend cuts, to make this work look for you this season and beyond.
These are our four must-have styles for winter fashion trends, so that you can be stylish and warm day-to-day, no matter your lifestyle.
