As we hit peak winter, wrap up warm in a duvet coat – the sartorial hug you didn’t know you needed. Here, we’ve rounded up the best offerings for both form and function. 

Of the few good things that emerged from the trio of national lockdowns we’ve collectively endured is the beauty of our new-found love of all things al fresco.

From hiking boots (which are comfortable and cool, FYI) to chunky cable-knit jumpers (swaddlicious, didn’t you know?), there was very little about our comfort-first pandemic uniforms that we didn’t love and have since allowed to trickle in to our post-lockdown wardrobes.  

The most notable example, of course, being the humble duvet coat. Previously an item of clothing endorsed by artic explorers and Arsene Wenger, the now highly coveted duvet coat has had something of a fashion do-over. Scoring you a lot more style points than before, this long-line puffer-style coat is padded to create layers of insulation to ensure you stay warmer for longer, making it the ideal go-to for icy winter walks.

Duvet coats: the puffer coat has had a stylish makeover.

Opt for a length that hits mid-calf and wear yours with a chunky cardigan, cropped jeans and stomper boots for an effortlessly cool look or, if you’re really embracing the sartorial sleeping bag energy, throw your duvet on over your workout gear for a comfort-first spin on the trend.

Get ready for fashion’s most stylish and most cuddle-worthy trend of all. These are a few of our favourite duvet coats to buy now and wear forever.
