Superbalist shows you the key styles that’ll have you covered this Winter
Since it's probably the layer that's most on display during the colder months, you should probably pay extra attention to your choice of outerwear.
Put together your winter look with our selection of the best jacket and coat styles to own this season.
A style with a militant history and an athletic edge, bomber jackets are in all our closets, with no limitations on how you can wear them. If you’re bored with your bomber styling, try taking it into formal territory. The combination of sleek suit trousers and a collared button up goes from conventional to cool with the addition of a bomber jacket in the same colour. Up the ante by topping off the look with your matching suit jacket for some next level layering.
You may think there’s not much to do with a coat but throw it on over whatever you’re wearing that day (because 'outfit - coat' = the outfit you will actually be seen in for most of the day), but there are ways to work it better. Try tonal dressing for starters. Camel full-length wool coats are classics that look great on every skin tone and body shape, and when paired with more warm sandy tones from head to toe, a winning look is an inevitable result.
Add heightened streetwear sensibility to even the simplest outfit, day or night, with a padded jacket. They look just as good over a velvet evening slip as they do over your favourite tech sweats and sneakers. The bigger the better, because volume is the point. For a choice that will work with most of your winter wardrobe, choose rich, dark hues over retro brights.
Speaking of retro fashion, faux fur is still hot, along with the slew of 70s and 90s fashion trends it regularly hangs out with. You can still rock the look if retro styling isn’t for you: skip the mini slip dresses and flared denim, and try boyfriend jeans and kicks or leggings, boots, and an oversized sweater for a modern sporty update.
While the traditional biker jacket is still the OG of edgy dressing, contemporary variations make for some interesting additions to winter outfits, even if ‘edge’ isn’t what you’re after. Lend casual polish to a fitted sweater and dark wash denim with an oversized shearling lined option in either smooth classic black or a pastel tone with some texture.
