The temperature’s dropping, but that doesn’t mean your style has to. Meet the 4 new reasons to embrace outerwear season with our must-have, cold weather trends. We’re talking coats and jackets so good you’ll be taking all your plans outside...

Do we need an excuse to cocoon ourselves in shearling style cosiness all winter? No tbh, but the new Charlie’s Angels remake is stirring up our 70s nostalgia. A little bit retro yet very now, these fur trimmed, caramel toned layers are THE iconic choice. You just need to convince two of your friends to coordinate with you on your next mission. Shouldn’t be hard… wearing one is akin to getting a big hug. Who wouldn’t want that?


Don’t fall for the bad boy, dress like him. In our humble opinion, the only thing Sandy should’ve taken from Danny was his jacket. There’s just something about a leather that turns a regular outfit into an enviably cool one… zero apathy required. Whether you opt for a long Matrix style mac or a cute cropped biker, we’re obsessed with PU & faux leather essentials. You can wear yours however you want, because it WILL work... but we’re feeling all black everything.

What if we told you that every day could be a duvet day?

Ok, we can’t quite make that dream come true, but choosing a puffer as your seasonal go-to is the next best thing. Padded and quilted, this is the style to cushion the blow of winter. Protecting you from the elements and looking good in the process, it’s the outerwear choice that overachieves on every level. If the silhouette feels a little scary, opt for a shorter style with a cinching waist belt. Or, take a big puff and brave a full length, maximum impact style.


Make a smart investment! Striking that perfect balance between timeless and timely, the overcoat is our ‘no regrets’ buy. Whether it’s over a suit or your sloppiest hoodie and jeans, this coat is pulling your look together every time. Classic in camel or with a cool utility twist, we promise this style can do no wrong. An instant outfit elevator, its lengthening lines are super flattering too. Essentially what we’re saying is, the overcoat looks good whatever you style it with, especially attitude!
