Your overcoat is the most powerful weapon in your wardrobe. Use it well. The cold season is the season to make your statement, so choose wisely. Whether you’ve opted for an oversized and luxurious number or you prefer to stick to a well-tailored piece, make sure you own it. To give you a little outerwear guidance, we’ve asked our staff about their top coat picks. Over to you guys…

Oly Innes – Events & Music Assistant

“I really like the camel colour of the coat. It’s surprisingly soft and while it’s light it still manages to keep me warm as the weather gets colder.”

Katrin Ciupiak – German Content & E-commerce Assistant

“I really love this coat from Pins & Needles with the faux fur lapels. I like the details and that you can wear it casual for work or glamorous for the evening. The silhouette is flattering, especially if you have some curves like me. It´s an eye catcher for the grey and cold days”

Alex Gordon – Office and Talent Coordinator

“I chose this coat for its clean silhouette, contemporary classic style and versatility. I’m a big fan of black – it looks good with everything – and the textured knit on this makes it stand out from a lot of other black coats filling the city streets this time of year. I’d wear it just as happily with a pair of runners as I would some smart brogues or boots.”

Sonia Aguado – Editorial Copywriter

“I love all things fluffy and this glorious coat makes me feel like Mary’s Little Lamb. Its neutral palette makes it easy to pair with either colourful or more pared-down outfits and the fact that it has a hood lets you snuggle up in it like you’re nesting in a ridiculously soft cloud.”

Jeanne Barbe – French Content & E-commerce Assistant

“This coat reminds me of summer in Brittany in France. The shape is quite classic but the details are really cute! I love the minimal stripes and its adjustable waist is adorable, you can even make a small knot. I can’t wait to nestle in its large hood in winter.”

Shop: Urban Outfitters Pinstripe Wool Parka

Judd Hayne – Social Media Assistant

“I chose the Shore Leave parka in olive because I’m a big fan of earth tones. It’s the perfect color for Autumn/Winter. It’s a really warm jacket, so I’d probably layer it with a tee and some sneakers or if it’s a unbearably cold I’d wear it with a sweater and some boots. (Unless I’m taking the tube)”
