Street style wearing hooded coat

We’ve found a stylish hooded coat in every classic style from parkas and puffer, to the trench…

There’s no doubt about it, spring is in the near distance, however coat season is still firmly in play. 

While we’re unsure whether to pack an umbrella, sunglasses and that extra layer just in case, there’s one thing we can be sure of; hooded coats are an essential this season. 

Nothing puts a dampener on our day (quite literally) like an unexpected shower on the way to the office  – drowned rat is so not chic, so we have to be prepared. 

Much like the array of street stylers during fashion month, we’re making the most sensible of sartorial moves and arming ourselves with a stylish coat complete with a hood to protect us from the inevitable inclement weather.

From stylish raincoats to on-trend puffer jackets, scroll through for our pick of the best hooded outerwear. See, proof fashion can be both stylish and practical!

The shacket is the (yep, you guessed it) shirt and jacket hybrid that’s big news for spring. The street stylers have been layering them over hoodies while it’s still cold, so this is the perfect already made option.
