Winter Jacket Essentials

Winter is well and truly here so now is the perfect time to invest in a new Winter Coat. Outerwear makes an outfit during the colder months, it keeps you nice and toasty but it also needs to work with your needs. So we have compiled our top picks this Autumn Winter, from puffers to classic coats we’ve got you covered.

Puffer Jackets

Keep nice and toasty with a classic Puffer Jacket, a great addition to any wardrobe. The quilting on a puffer jacket is designed to help with retention of warm air thus keeping you nice and warm. Stick with a classic casual Puffer like the wale cord Elsa from Elm, such an easy jacket to throw on for a dog walk or quick trip to the shops, pair with your favourite boyfriend jean and cosy jumper for an easy put together look. A great way to spruce up an everyday outfit is with a Ruby Yaya or Johnny Was vibrant puffer jacket, a modern twist on a classic style. Bring the sunshine out in winter with the Flora Quilted Velvet Jacket by Johnny Was, this elegant floral jacket can add pizzazz to any outfit whether pairing down with jeans and a cami or dressing up with an evening slip dress it’s bound to lift the spirits of those around you!

Lightweight Jackets

Whether it’s a little lightweight sporty number or more of your classic rainwear every wardrobe deserves a stylish lightweight jacket.

Be adventurous with a print like the Printed Jacket from Clarity which can be paired with so many different colours giving you endless styling opportunities.

Alternatively go with the Marine Jacket from Gordon Smith, the classic rainwear in bright block colours will never go out of style, easily add a bit of interest by rolling the sleeve to reveal a classic Marine stripe to weather any storm.


A Gilet is usually a go to for season transitions but thanks to the occasional mild Winters day it’s a great alternative to a heavier weight jacket.

When you need the extra bit of warmth, reach for the Quilted Jacket from Monari which has the look of a Gilet thanks to its lightweight sweater style sleeves, it’s basically two looks in one!

Layer your look in the dark depths of Winter with a pop of colour using the Cocoon Gilet from Madly Sweetly. The soft fluffy marle cocoon gilet will make layering effortless and stylish, pop a classic white shirt underneath and layer on your favourite Winter coat, you’ll not have to worry about feeling the chill.


The definition of a Coatigan is a long cardigan, created for women made of thick yarn designed to be worn as a coat.

The Coatigan by IVKO is the absolute definition of a coatigan, its figure-hugging shape makes for a bulk-less layer and the distinctive inverted collar, dainty front buttoning and unlined hems create an overall divine piece.

Alternatively, opt for the Maxi Coat by Mela Purdie this beautiful longline cardigan is the perfect sophisticated addition to your wardrobe. The long line open-fronted features a relaxed silhouette, with folded cuff detailing and dramatic side split, pair with the Walker Pant for an effortlessly cool look.

The Sweater Half Duster is a fantastic cosy sweater style duster coat with a standout quilted collar and back panel, it’s going to smarten up your favourite jeans and t-shirt outfit.
