THE OUTERWEAR EDIT:

BIG COAT ENERGY

Get ready for a taste of something different.

Author: Joe Bloggs Photographer: Jane Doe

Barbiecore bombers, faux-fur extravaganzas and monogram trenches: allow us to introduce you to the biggest coats of the season – sometimes, literally. These statement coats go big on style, ticking off some of the season’s key trends, seamlessly tying outfits together and most – or least, depending on how you look at it – importantly, keeping us warm as winter sets in and the party keeps going. From Balenciaga to Gucci, grab your going-out coats, it’s time to party.

1. THE FAUX FUR COAT

It’s big, it’s bold and it’s Balenciaga. This may just be the coat of the season. It’s a truth universally acknowledged in the fashion world that Demna makes dreams come true, and with the Fake Fur Coat he’s done it again. Knee-length, snow-white and with logo-detailing in a graffiti style to the back, it’s got instant ‘what the faux?’ effect and is guaranteed to take your winter wardrobe to the next level.

2. THE BARBIECORE BOMBER

The key to styling out party season? Think pink. Perhaps the most important trend in the fashion world right now, pink’s reign is far from over. And a part-ready accessory is the easiest way to work everyone’s favourite colour into your wardrobe. Case in point? This bucket hat from Valentino Garavani in a juicy splash of hot, hot pink, straight from the viral Pink PP collection.

3. THE COLOUR-POP COAT

It’s not everyday we come across a coat that would make the devil herself (i.e. Miranda Priestly) proud, but Prada have delivered with their Courdory Coat. A chic pick, the sunflower-yellow coat is a fun-yet-classic take on outerwear. Ft. sharp lapels, oversized sleeves and soft corduroy detailing, it’s a prime example of big energy dressing.

4. THE MONOGRAM TRENCH

Father, son, and Gucci monogram. If there’s one fashion detail we will truly never tire of, it’s Gucci’s monogram. And for winter 2022, they’ve taken things up a notch. The Metamorfosi ‘G’ Symbol Coat prints the iconic G from head to toe, drawn with sharp edges and accompanied by pointed green triangles. The result is a sharp, statement making pick that shakes up expectations.

5. THE SHEARLING ROBE

Fluffy towels and soft robes are one of life’s simple luxuries. OTT outerwear from Bottega Veneta is one of life’s more hardcore luxuries. But a mixture of the two? Now that’s a combo we didn’t see coming. In soft, plush shearling, Bottega Veneta’s Shearling Coat features an oversized hood and belt detailing and leather trimming for a fox tail effect. Basically, it’s the bathrobe coat we never knew we needed, and now simply must have.

6. THE ULTRALUXE PUFFER

This Christmas, we’re dreaming of Dolce. Top of our wish list? This Padded Coat. Winterproofing their signature floral print, the fashion maestros have created a longline, padded puffer that’s covered with blooming roses. A steadfast winter pick with all the allure of spring days? We’re into it. Pair with the most hard-working item in your closet, the Little Black Dress.
