There are several key trends to follow for AW16, each complimenting different whether conditions and needs. Choosing a coat for all weather conditions is no easy task, but don’t worry we’re here to help. Here are some of our own favourites for the coming winter season.
The teddy-coat/Faux Fur
The teddy-coat/faux fur has made a huge comeback this season, it’s oversized, fluffy and warm. Our latest obsession is the styles from Stand, weather you want the rich nougat coloured teddy or the rusty red jacket its up to you — the teddy coat/faux fux is one of the most prominent trends for AW16 and is one of the safest bets if you prefer a coat over a puffer jacket for winter.

The classic wardrobe staple has gotten a contemporary upgrade for the forthcoming season. The iconic overcoat has been updated with belts, pockets and wider lapels and is perfect for the city life. The perfect wool-coat is one that can easily be transformed from an everyday coat to the perfect evening coat. Choose one in a classic colour like heather grey, rich navy or solid black.

For the more extreme weather conditions, down coats are the true go-to garment for Scandinavians. Down coats or puffer coats have come a long way as far as technology goes over the past couple of years. They’re no longer heavy and unpractical to wear in a busy city setting. Instead brands like Holzweiler and Nike have used technology to their advantage creating coats that are minimal, yet functional — providing full heat protection for the body.
