Plummeting temperatures and inclement weather are no excuse for letting your sartorial standards slip. This season, designers across the board have upped their outerwear game, presenting standout pieces that strike the perfect balance between timely and timeless.
Looking to imbue your closet with a little old-world glamour? Try heritage fabrics, which are back in a big way for FW19; in the deft hands of designers like Stella McCartney and JW Anderson, they now feel like a totally fresh proposition. Purists, meanwhile, are sure to be seduced by the sleek simplicity of The Row’s fluid, longline coat – cast in a perennially chic navy hue, it’s a bona fide investment piece. When it comes to cold-weather dressing, shearling is always a winner; we’d be more than happy to spend this winter cocooned in Joseph’s robe coat or swaddled in Fendi’s logo-stamped designs. And if you want to up the ante after dark, look no further than Chloé’s eye-popping colors or Attico’s glamorous animal prints – these elegant pieces are the perfect accompaniment for silk slip dresses, velvet separates and ’70s-inspired suiting.
