There’s something so autumnal about wrapping up warm in a new cosy coat.
Whether you’re looking for a statement piece to lift your mood on a rainy day, or something practical for city strolls and country rambles, your perfect autumn coat is out there!
A walk in the park
Is there anything better than a stroll in the park with the crunch of autumn leaves underfoot? Yes, there is. A really decent coat! Luckily, the two go hand-in-hand, and we think we’ve found the perfect coat for outdoor adventures. The Mabel Check Coat from AllSaints ticks a lot of boxes… it’s chic, it’s warm, it’s streamlined and tailored. What’s not to like?
Looking pretty fly
There’s something so timeless about a classic aviator jacket. Inspired by flight jackets worn by jet pilots, it’s an undeniably cool aesthetic. The Hardy jacket from Reiss has been crafted from supple shearling, which insulates from neck to waist – perfect for frosty autumn days. We think this jacket looks best paired with a simple white t-shirt and jeans for an elevated casual look.
When the days are turning grey and dreary, why not reflect the changing hues of the autumn foliage with brightly coloured outerwear, like this Tilda wool coat from Hobbs? Available in camel or vibrant ochre, we think this stylish tailored design is the perfect addition to this season’s wardrobe.
Coats with conscience
Crafted in organic cotton, this smart trench coat by BOSS Menswear, features a double-breasted closure, shoulder epaulettes and a fabric belt at the waist. With sumptuously silky lining, this contemporary coat feels luxurious, and yet can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
We admit it, sometimes it’s a struggle to get out of bed when it’s blowing a gale outside. So, why not make the transition to the outside world less of a shock to the system with this incredible quilted coat from Mango? Oversized and super snuggly, with a removable inner vest for chillier days, this is one cuddly coat !
Keeping things casual
Autumn can be unpredictable. One day it’s torrential and the next, it’s like summer has made a sneaky comeback! So, make sure you’re not caught out this season by adding this gorgeous checked ‘shacket’ from Next to your wardrobe. It’s available in pink or ecru and is affordably priced too, so who could blame you if you bought both?
Release the rock chick!
We think that everyone should own a leather (or pleather) jacket. These wardrobe staples can add instant rock chick factor to any outfit and are easily dressed up or down, depending on your mood. Featuring silver toned detailing with a wide collar and diagonal zip fastening, this premium leather biker design from Oliver Bonas is sure to get you noticed!
From office to out
A flexible wardrobe is key when you know you’re going for afterwork drinks, and we think this oversized jacket from H&M is just the ticket. Available in four colours, this straight-cut jacket features dropped shoulders for a relaxed look, and yet is smart enough to wear to the office, too. Throw on over a tailored dress, or pair down with jeans and a tee – the choice is yours!
Look the part of a true country gent this autumn with the Fenton technical jacket from Hackett. This timeless classic is sophisticated yet functional, with a diamond quilt design and packable hood. Perfect for all weather, the jacket is quick drying with durable fabric and an insulated lining to provide breathability and warmth.
