Almost every season we are drawn to a Whistles coat. It’s their calling card in our opinion. Sometimes I have even been known to own more than one! The key is their cut, robust fabrics and luxe finishes. This Julia Boucle long black coat is my favourite from the Autumn/Winter collection; I think every woman should own a black coat and the style of this one will never date.
When this renowned Topshop Creative Director announced that she was joining Whistles eyebrows were raised. What could she do with such classic brand? But Jane has proved her skills are most certainly transferable, turning Whistles once again into one of our most coveted high-end High Street retailers.
This is the year of the oversized mannish coat. This one will look best layered over a tailored suit and a black lace blouse. Wear it over the shoulders and let the arms hang loose.
