If you’ve noticed the steady drop in temperature then you’re probably thinking what I’m thinking: coat season is on the horizon.
Investing in a great coat shouldn’t be taken lightly, especially as the goal is to find one that you can buy now and treasure forever. New-in sections are awash with the new season coats, and it can be a little overwhelming at times. So, to help in your hunt, I’ve narrowed it down to six pillar styles that will remain eternally chic, so you can invest now and rewear forever.
In my search for the best types of coats to invest in, I found that lots of our favourite celebrities rely on these styles year after year, proving just how good they are. Whether you’re going out, or simply running to the shops, these timeless styles will elevate any look, and keep you cosy all winter long. The concise list includes faux fur coats, the classic trench coat, and, of course, the puffer coat. Over the years I’ve managed to accumulate one of each of these styles, and with the right care, they’ll last for years to come. Plus, if you opt for black or neutral tones, you’ll be able to easily mix and match with everything in your wardrobe. Scroll on to explore six celebrity-approved coat styles to invest in now.
There’s a timeless elegance that is innate to this type of outerwear, and it promises to elevate any outfit you pair it with. We’ve spotted the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Rachel Stevens returning to this style every year when the cooler days set in, proving the longevity of this investment piece.
When I was sixteen I bought a black puffer coat, and I still wear it today. Yes, over a decade of wear from this one style of coat. Though my puffer is ready for replacement, the style of coat is going nowhere. The puffer coat has become a modern classic within fashionable wardrobes, so if you want a cosy coat that will also protect from sudden showers then check a puffer coat off your fashion staples list.
If there’s one jacket that works the hardest, I’d say it was the classic trench coat. A feature of every minimalists wardrobe, the versatility of this coat is not to be overlooked. Wearing a dress? Trench coat. Want to smarten up your tracksuit set? Trench coat. Rainy days? Trench coat. It can be worn for coffee dates, running errands or over evening wear. Trust me, once you invest in a trench coat, you’ll pull it out every autumn.
For a time, faux fur coats took a back seat while teddy styles reigned supreme. But, Kate Moss and Hailey Bieber have convinced us that it’s time for the faux fur coat’s to have a come back. This winter, style yours with mini dresses when you’re going out-out, or with baggy jeans and a tee for a cool laid-back look.
A slightly broader coat option is the leather coat. While classic biker jackets are a reliable option, there’s plenty more styles if you’ve already bagged a great biker. We’ve noticed that celebrities are turning to leather trenches and leather peacoats for the colder months, and we must confess, we’re sold.
This newer style of coat is fast becoming a modern classic. Don’t be misled by the fact that it’s trending, this long length coat will never go out of style. Right now, grey versions seem to be all the rage, and thankfully this colour is eternally chic so you’ll never fall out of love with your grey maxi coat.
