How do I choose a coat for autumn?

Sometimes it can be daunting trying to pick a coat that will be suitable between summer and winter. Usually you wouldn’t want to select something as heavy as a winter coat but also not as light as a summer coat. Our new in Longline Lightweight coat makes the perfect autumnal cover up. It is available in 6 different colours and fits up to size 24. The luxe, lightweight blend of our long coat perfectly complements its relaxed silhouette for an air of effortless cool. Long sleeved with pockets and a single button fastening, this coat cuts the same level of throw on style whether worn with tees or layered over knits.

What is the best way to style an autumn coat?

Long coats are very high-fashion during the autumn season. For that reason, we have chosen to style our Drape Trench Coat. Our trench coat is available in 2 colours, stone or khaki, and is a lightweight style with long sleeves. This timeless classic looks great with our Slim Leg or Skinny Jeans, paired with our Leopard Print Blouse for a bold look or a simple white Long Sleeve Top for an everyday look. For a full new fit’ style alongside our Tassel Shopper bag and Awesome Multi-Buckle Biker boots.

Lightweight coats are ideal in the autumn season for throwing on (or having to carry!) in our unpredictable weather. They’re breathable for those damp humid days, whilst also keeping you dry throughout the wetter days. Our new in Utility Jacket is the perfect, stylish overcoat which proves to be the perfect layering option for year-round styling.
