When it comes to stylish coats, you can guarantee we won’t leave you high and dry this season! The British Summer sometimes behaves similar to that indecisive friend of yours, the one who just can’t choose what restaurant they’d like to eat at, or which pair of shoes to buy! Instead, our good friend summer is often confused over which season it will behave as today… will it be summer with a touch of a spring breeze? Or will it play summer with lashings of torrential winter hail!? Who knows!? All we can know for sure is we’re prepared for whatever the day throws at us with a stylish coat. Here’s a few of our favourites…
The Classic Coat
If you don’t usually wear raincoats and you’re unsure what type of style to go for, our top tip would be to stay classic! A traditional trench style with a classic cut and toggle fastenings will never go out of style. This lovely one is so classic it has us feeling slightly nostalgic (who remembers good old Paddington Bear!) but most importantly the waterproof lining means you’ll be kept dry all day long. Available in blue, pink, yellow or navy and with beneficial features such as a detachable hood, concealed zip and practical pockets there’s so many reasons to love this coat!
The Modern Mac
A mac is prepped to be your go-to, wear-with-everything outerwear essential; offering just the right amount of protection from the elements without sacrificing any of your style points. The lightweight fabric of this style is what makes this mac the perfect option for whatever the weather, and the added roll-up/roll-down sleeves make it practical even for the warmer days! The elasticated waist gives a slightly more tailored look as it cinches you in at the waistline, providing more shape than the traditional mac, whilst the duck egg colour and shimmer fabric work together to create an on-trend fashion-forward look.
The Pretty Parka
For those days when the sun finally makes an appearance, a trench coat in a light, pastel colour is an easy way to brighten up any outfit. Perfect for that awkward summer – autumn & spring – summer transition, this in-between season coat will keep you warm and stylish throughout the whole year.
Add some cool and casual vibes to your outfit by teaming with a check shirt. The combination of masculine meets feminine brings a great contemporary twist to any look. With full lining and padding for warmth, plus a concealed front zip fastening and a detachable hood, this pretty parka just keeps on giving.
The On-Trend Jacket
What better colour to transition into the new season than with an autumnal mustard hue. This on-trend colour will look equally fabulous at the end of summer, as it will in the midst of November! Quilted to ensure warmth throughout the winter, this style includes a concealed hood in the stand collar, a front zip and functional front pockets. Team with grey Susie Slim Leg jeans for a chic off-duty look and your favourite piece of cosy knitwear.
