Living in the tropics means outerwear is your least priority in your wardrobe, worn only in the occasional downpour and on travels to cooler destinations. Even so, there’s no doubt that when it comes to autumnal layering, a well-designed coat or jacket is the style hero of the modern fashion girl. Warehouse, UK’s high street fashion label, has the key styles to own now:
The Double-Breasted Jacket
As temperatures drop, make your outfit pop in a bright red double-breasted number. Wear it over chunky knits or against animal print for a festive touch to any statement look. The tailored design also makes this piece work in the office and on days you want to look smarter.
The Short Bonded Coat
Oversized and with a throw-me-on air, this collarless coat is perfect for pairing with jeans and a lightweight top. The sleek and relaxed silhouette can make any outfit look extra chic. The best thing about it? It’s available in warm autumnal colors, so you can wear it all year round for a subtle pop of color.
The Check Midi Coat
Checks are having a major moment this season, and a check coat is sure to create maximum impact in any look. With its corporate roots made more casual with a softer fit and a touch of yellow, it’s the ultimate street style cover-up that instantly adds a premium feel to all your outfits.
The Single-Breasted Coat
Invest in a classic single-breasted coat, since it works well with just about any outfit. Throw it over a statement dress, or make its sophistication take center stage when worn over a tee and basic jeans.
The Padded Coat
Headed for somewhere with near-zero temperatures? Take a belted padded coat with you, since it adds a stylish and feminine touch to an otherwise merely warm and utilitarian piece. The faux fur trim makes for a trendy winter-appropriate ensemble.
What to Wear Under the Coat
Knits and Jumpers
If all else fails, a trusty knit is always a good idea. It’s easy to pack and can be styled with everything: jeans, trousers, or a cute miniskirt. Choose a lightweight option with accents like lace for a more luxe feel.
Statement Dresses and Skirts
A bold tailored dress or flowy midi skirt creates an effortless, sophisticated look. Choose prints in warm tones to brighten up your OOTD and stand out in your travel pics.
When do you go wrong with denim? Whether it’s dark wash or light wash, this closet staple will always look good under a coat or a blazer.
