How to build your perfect wardrobe
Finding your dream coat starts with getting the silhouette right. Tailored coats are ideal investment pieces since their clean lines and structured silhouettes don’t date. Whether you’re after something more close-fitted like a belted coat that can be nipped in the waist, military-inspired styles like the classic double breasted coat or opt for oversize tailoring for a vintage look, it’s all about finding the right cut to suit your style.
Whilst you can opt for bolder colours and prints, for a timeless look that pairs effortlessly with the rest of your wardrobe, neutral tones are you hero. Classic camel is a favourite year after year, whilst greys from deeper charcoal to dove grey and winter whites are forever chic. Look to the likes of Ted Baker and Reiss for neutral tailored coats that you’ll reach to time and again.
The clue’s in the name, so it’s no surprise that heritage-inspired styles will continue to remain timeless classics. From heritage-inspired check patterns to silhouettes that have defined British heritage such as the quintessential trench coat, these tailored coats from French Connection and Jaeger and Jigsaw will shield you from the elements in style.
