It’s so cold all we can think about is restocking our outerwear collection. Luckily, we’ve made an edit of the best coats in one of winters’ key trends: checks.
We may be dreaming of cotton dresses and sandals but the weather is telling us to focus on coats, and with so many amazing new styles it’s easy to snap one up. But with so many on offer, how do you know which one to invest in? We’ve taken the time to edit down a shortlist of the best of the best, and our coat special features one of this season’s favourite print picks: checks. They stormed the catwalks as part of the hero heritage trend at Balenciaga and Stella McCartney, and now naturally, they’ve filtered down to the high street too.
You’ll be surprised how check prints, no matter how subtle or bold, will filter in to your capsule wardrobe and go with all your winter wares. From the Burberry tailored coat-of-dreams, to Topshop’s faux fur collared beauty and Marks and Spencer’s updated trench– these are the coat styles you should be bookmarking. But, be quick, the best ‘It’ coats always sell out fast – we’ve already seen the Zara neon detail style all over Instagram, so it’s bound to get snapped up soon.
