The ICONS Coat Edit
A good coat can make or break an outfit – especially if you’re living in this side of the hemisphere for the next six to nine months, it will be the single item you will wear day in and day out. So make it your resolution this winter to buy something beautifully cut and of outstanding quality that will last you forever. No more cheap buys – a coat is like a firm handshake, it makes an unforgettable first impression.
A camel coat is the quintessential forever buy and you will, undoubtedly, wear it for the rest of your life. It looks great with denim at the weekend and over any work outfit. Try it with a pop of red in your accessories for a striking look, or pair it with white knitwear for a super chic look. If you already own one, this season try belting at the waist for a modern take on this classic staple.
Being often at a loss as to what outerwear to wear in the evening over a smart dress, this year I’ve invested in a black cashmere mix cape as my evening coat and I feel like I’ve ticked yet another box in the functionality of my wardrobe. Reasons I recommend a cape: it’s versatile, perfect to hold a day clutch and if you are pregnant it’s the only coat that will sit right on your bump.
