As we are in the middle of winter and are stuck with no option but to layer in, coats have become a quintessential part of any winter wardrobe, not least for their function. A good coat is also a splendid way to elevate a look that would have otherwise been simple, and perhaps even bland, to a new level.
Here are some of our favourites:
Thebe Magugu’s off-the-shoulder trench coat dress has a semi-elasticated neckline and a stylised storm flap, and contrast panelling in navy and tan. It’s a dream to look at and turns you into one when you put it on. A subtle statement that still says “bold”.
The Rich Mnisi Wrap Trench Coat has a relaxed fit. Crafted from a satin twill it has eyelets on the lapels and a strap wrap around the body. If you’re looking for something edgy but graceful, this is perfect.
Colleen Eitzen’s Long-Haired Melton Ulla coat will stand you in good stead on the coldest of winter days. It’s warm, it’s bold, it’s beautiful, and it will probably be your go-to for quick errands out of the house, meetings at the office, and easy breakfast and dinner dates.
