Fall’s not over yet, and winter’s already knocking at our doors. As temperatures drop a little more each day, you’ll need a coat – or even two, to alternate depending on the weather – to keep you warm outside. To mentally prepare yourself for the cold before it really sets in, we invite you to take a look at our beautiful range of coats and outerwear, each style more chic and comfortable than the last.
To get you started, here are five coat styles we highly recommend trying this season.
1. The Wool-Blend Coat
Chic and timeless, welcome a warm-toned stretch wool-blend coat into your closet for when the weather is cool yet not too cold. Choose one long enough to cover some of your legs, with a notched collar for the look, and a button front that opens and closes effortlessly. To maximize your comfort levels, pull on a sumptuous sweater or cable knit to wear underneath. Then, top it all off with a few winter accessories, and you’re ready to hit the town!
2. The Cozy Quilted Coat
If you want to get the best of the cold, rain and wind, snuggle up confidently in a warm mid-length quilted coat. A design with drawstrings at the hood and hem, ribbed knit cuffs, and an easy-to-use two-way zipper will block out any drafts and keep out the chill. Leather details are sure to add style to this winter essential.
3. The Recycled Down Coat
Is the health of our planet important to you? Ethical, beautiful and warm, our recycled vegan down coats will accommodate your eco-conscious habits as well as your desire for comfort. There are two options available to you when it comes to inner padding.
The Sofeelate® fill coat, made from 100% recycled polyester, has the advantage of being lightweight and compressible, making it easy to carry – a great asset, for example, if you are travelling to a business meeting or to the office by subway or train. The Repreve® fill coat, made from recycled plastic water bottles, can also help you brave the cold in an eco-friendly manner. These exclusive models are water repellent, wind resistant and machine washable.
4. The Faux Fur Coat
Faux fur adds sophistication to any outfit. When you want to step out bundled up without sacrificing style, you can bet on a reversible faux fur coat. On a night out, show off your luxurious side in soft fur. On a casual day when you’re going shopping, having lunch with friends or in a rainy mood, show off the flipside of the coat made of water-resistant material. Count on a leopard motif for a look full of character, or if you prefer, opt for a solid tone for classic appeal.
Can’t forget about its practical details, like a built-in hood and pockets, helping you protect your neck, face and hands from the cold! A well-sealed button closure will also have a windproofing effect.
5. The Pretty and Practical Poncho
Are you expected at a restaurant or party? Weather permitting, you can always turn to a cape-style poncho. It will save you the hassle of a heavier coat. With or without fur, a poncho is perfect to wear over a pretty dress or a well-put-together outfit.
A wool-blend model with a high collar and buttons will guarantee both upper-body warmth and style. A relaxed, cropped fit will let you move about freely, even while driving.
