Coats and Jackets
Perfectly cut coats and jackets are the ultimate sartorial investment piece. The last thing you throw on and the first others notice, well-selected outerwear leads your look and effortlessly sums up your style. For the traditionalists, classic elements such as frog detailing, fur trimming and tactile fabrications (think bouclé, brocade, and velvet) combine to create the pinnacle of pulled together chic. Opt for classic style such as the Princess, Trench or Pea coats.
Fashion mavens however, look to modern influences from sports to music, opting for pure rock ‘n’ roll staples such as the stud embellished biker jacket or shearling-lined aviator or sporting staples such as the quilted puffa to make a statement. From the yearly investment of the ‘Hero’ coat to the jacket as a trans-seasonal saviour, CoChineChine boasts an impeccable selection of must-have outerwear.
When the temperature drops, wrap yourself up in a coat that will see you through the winter in style and keep you warm in luxe textures of wool and cashmere. Follow trends and go oversize, cinching in the waist of an MW Matthew Williamson A-line style with a belt for a truly ladylike aesthetic. Alternatively, experiment with masculine details; double breasted cuts, military-style metallic buttons and sharp tailoring, accessorising these boyfriend styles with demure high heels for feminine contrast.
Great jackets can be the focus of your signature style. Think of the love-worn leather jacket, the beautifully cut blazer or the serious chic of a boxy black bouclé bolero. An unexpected pastel or shimmering metallic can turn something formerly safe and traditional into a Trophy jacket. Look to French label Iro for a fresh take on old favourites with their collection of biker jackets, bombers and blazers re-imagined in new textures and fabrics and finished off with exquisite detailing. Pair these show-stealers with laid-back day dresses or over a casual tee and jeans. Whether the look is directional or timeless, re-define an outfit with CoChineChine’s easy edit of the best coats and jackets around.
