We’re getting to that time of year where your jacket really becomes the star player in your wardrobe. But you can never just rely on one star player can you? Winter is such a turbulent season (freezing one day, unseasonably warm the next) you need a whole team behind you. Here are four (yep, four) jackets that you will definitely need at some point over the coming winter.
You never know what the weather is going to do around this time of year. So our first choice is something that can be worn with plenty of layers during the big freeze or with less during the milder late autumn days. A lightweight puffer jacket is a great choice for this situation.
Of course you’re also going to need a big coat for when the cold weather really kicks in. So our second choice is something that’s really going to keep you toasty. Something heavy like a Wadded Jacket is perfect, the padded interior locks in warmth, but it doesn’t look too technical. So you’ll get all the benefits of a winter coat without looking like you’ve got lost on the way to the Antarctic.
There are times when only practicality will do, but if we’ve said it once we’ve said it a thousand times: practicality doesn’t need to be at the expense of style. Our third choice is something that balances function and fashion perfectly: the Microfleece Lined Jacket. The microfleece lining provides the function (warmth), and the parka-inspired design brings the style.
Our four choice is a bonafide classic, something that’s truly versatile. Meaning it looks great dressed up or down. It’s the Harrington Jacket. Ideal for those winter nights out in disconcertingly humid pubs and clubs.
