Style Advisor: All Wrapped Up

The best investment you can make for your autumn wardrobe? A carefully selected coat. The hardest working piece in your closet, it’ll see you through winter walks, cold commutes and another winter of outdoor socialising. From bombers and puffers to macs and teddy coats, these are the coat trends to bag now and wear all winter long. And what’s more, we’ve worked out just how to style them…


High-performance outerwear that looks as good as it feels? The puffer coat is back for a second outing this winter and its bigger - and better - than ever. For AW21, opt for short, boxy styles. Wear with your autumn looks now, and layer on top of everything from dresses to jeans to leggings to trench coats throughout the season.


Easing yourself into the new season? Givenchy have just the bomber jacket for the job. Coming in a high-shine silver, it pairs perfectly with your next night-out ensemble. Layer over the IT dress of the season, pull on over-the-knee boots and layer under a padded gilet when the temperature drops.


A true classic, the trench coat has never been more popular. The trick? Wear oversized, cinched at the waist and go for styles that cut just above the ankle. Give it an extra 2021 update in all-over monogram, c/o Balmain, and pair with matching prints. Styling it out for the weekend? Throw over a tracksuit, pull on a baseball cap and add sneakers.


With 70 years in the business, Max Mara have nailed the outerwear formula with their signature teddy coat. Cosy? Yes. Warm? Incredibly. Chic? Certainly. Oversized enough to throw on over just about everything, it looks just as good with your activewear as evening attire. But our favourite look? Tonal. Layer over loose-fit trousers and a matching tank.
