Now it’s officially autumn and the temperature has dropped, it’s time to invest in your new winter warmer. Our coat edit will help you choose the perfect one. First up - checks.
If you haven’t done the summer to autumn wardrobe swap yet, then it’s officially time now that coats are everywhere to be seen. 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 we’re kicking off our coat special with 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.
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 new season wares. From the Acne Studios classic coat-of-dreams, to Bershka’s take on the tartan car coat and River Island’s patchwork beauty– 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 Uterque pastel blue style all over Instagram, so it’s bound to get snapped up soon.
