Nanushka Imogen faux fur coat, S$1,240 from Farfetch
You’ve probably seen Kim Kardashian and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wrapped up snug in teddy coats. Which is why we are officially endorsing this.
Rendered in a chic dusty pink, this teddy coat from Nanushka is a must-own in our books. Featuring considerably sized front pockets (yay for utility) and cut to an oversized silhouette, this wool faux fur number looks equal parts fun and sophisticated.
Style yours with statement earrings in bright colours, tailored trousers and a blouse in neutral tones.
Salvatore Ferragamo belted cashmere and silk-blend coat, US$6,500 (S$8,969.77) from Net-a-porter
Cut from sumptuously soft cashmere and silk-blend to resemble shearling, Salvatore Ferragamo’s coat resembles an upscaled, high fashion take on your everyday shower robe. It features a fold-over silhouette, sophisticated shawl lapels, and a long statement belt. Style this with a slinky slip dress that clings to the body – a nice juxtaposition to the oversized silhouette, and knife-sharp stiletto boots.
Max Mara Adenia alpaca, wool and silk-blend coat, US$3,250 from Net-a-porter
Crafted from bright turquoise alpaca wool, the ‘Adenia’ coat from Max Mara was styled with matching turquoise croc-effect knee high boots and tonal turtleneck with tights to create an instantly memorable single-coloured look. We’re thinking of styling it with something a little more pared back for the office though: A whimsical floral print dress and strappy sandals.
Ero Derby paisley-print quilted-satin robe coat, S$4,440 from Matches Fashion
Styled on the Etro F/W ‘19 runway over matching blouse and trousers in the same print and a black blazer, this robe coat sports the house’s signature paisley print, this time in a soft grey monochromatic colour scheme. Made from satin and hemmed with quilted panels along the shawl lapels and cuffs, this luxurious number is finished with a belt with opulent black tassels.
MM6 Maison Margiela oversized padded cotton trench coat, US$1,995 from Net-a-porter
Just like the other items from MM6 Maison Margiela’s Fall 2019 collection, this oversized trench coat comes in white padded fabric. Crafted from crisp cotton and rocking the brand’s minimalist yet quirky aesthetic, this number is great if you like to dress in white for winter (Yes, you can. Winter fashion doesn’t have to be all dark and sombre).
Roksanda Larisa feather-trim alpaca-blend coat, S$5,480 from Matches Fashion
Having premiered on the Roksanda F/W ‘19 fashion show, this oversized soft alpaca hair and wool-blend coat looks like a winter wonderland dream come true. Trimmed down the front in wispy, light feat and lined on the inside with pink silk satin, this coat’s a true stunner that will appeal to all your hyper-ladylike senses.
Stand Studio Taylor oversized faux shearling coat, US$415 from Net-a-porter
A Stockholm brand favoured by It-girls and street style stars, Stand Studio carries covetable luxury clothing that won’t break the bank. One of its hottest selling items on the top of fashion girls’ wishlists? Their coats. This one is rendered in a pale blue-grey hue and is textured in fuzzy faux shearling. Take a cue from the season’s trends and layer this standout number with a crochet blouse and casual jeans.
Showcasing colourblocking at its finest, this lambskin and lamb fur coat from Marni looks like a visual spectacle with its contrasting beige-brown-black panelled combination. Cut to a mid-length, we’re picturing this coat styled above a brightly coloured top (think: mustard yellow or fire engine red) and a mini skirt with the coat left unbuttoned in the front. Finish this look with chunky soled brogues.
Utzon reversible double-breasted shearling coat, US$3,285 from Net-a-porter
Environmentally conscious brand Utzon’s double breasted reversible coat is seen here in plush dark brown shearling with a leather lining of the same colour. Made from responsibly sourced lamb shearling and leather, this coat will look great next to tonal trousers, heavyweight chunky sneakers and a knitted cropped top.
Acne Studios Orala leather-trimmed faux-fur coat, S$1,940 from Matches Fashion
Outlined with black leather trimmings to give the faux fur coat a modern edge, the Orala coat from Acne Studios is crafted from heavyweight faux fur and comes with a leather belt to cinch the waist. Team this with an oversized tote bag slouched over your shoulders, a midi skirt that cuts right below the coat, and knee-high boots.
