    Friends of ICONS Share Their Favourite Coats

    Finding a truly perfect coat – one that looks chic, keeps you warm and goes with everything in your wardrobe – is the holy grail of winter style. Once you’ve curated your capsule of outerwear gems, dressing for the cold becomes a whole lot easier, not to mention enjoyable.

    To help inspire you to find that perfect piece, we reached out to some of the most stylish women we know and asked them to share the coats currently topping their wish lists. From a printed puffer to a day-to-evening overcoat, this is how the industry’s best-dressed wrap up.

    LEAH CHAPMAN

    FOUNDER OF ISSUE TWELVE

     

    “My go-to is our Grandpa coat in navy. It’s so soft as it’s made from wool cashmere. It’s also generous in size, meaning I can really layer pieces underneath it to keep warm. Plus, I love the big patch pockets.”

    RENE MACDONALD

    FOUNDER OF LISOU

     

    “In the UK, we spend half the year in winter coats, so they’re a really important investment. Our new Millar coat is my current favourite. I love the fact that it’s a statement piece but also totally wearable for every day.”

    JJ MARTIN

    FOUNDER OF LA DOUBLEJ

     

    “I live in Milan, where it gets pretty cold, so you need a puffer jacket. However, I can’t stand those classic puffers, so this is our sleek, silk, long triple-duty puffer. Not only does it have this fabulous kimono shape, it also has a beautifully placed poppy pattern. It’s reversible, too, so you have two coats in one: one black, one peach-apricot. It’s basically the chicest sleeping bag you’ll ever wear.”

    AMY SMILOVIC

    FOUNDER OF TIBI

     

    “My favourite coat is my recycled wool and cashmere Liam Western coat. It’s not just any coat because it’s a ‘two-fer’; the vest comes out and looks so chic worn on its own. I never feel like I’m trying too hard in it – I can wear this to go and grab a coffee, but I’d also wear it to a black-tie event. Bonus.”

    VERONICA SWANSON BEARD & VERONICA MIELE BEARD

    CO-FOUNDERS OF VERONICA BEARD

     

    “Everyone needs a wear-forever, hero coat. We never met a cashmere coat that we didn’t love.”

    NILI LOTAN

    FOUNDER OF NILI LOTAN

     

    “The Mariette Overcoat from my Fall collection is my favorite for the season. What I love about it is the oversized fit. Made out of a super luxurious virgin wool in a tonal charcoal herringbone pattern, it feels as if I borrowed it from my husband’s closet, yet it was designed for a woman. It’s perfect for everyday and it elevates any look from jeans and a cashmere sweater to a beautifully tailored suit or dress.”
