Your winter holiday plans are sorted, from where to stay to what to do. So why wing it with the other most important thing: the right protective gear? This Fall/Winter (F/W), unlike every F/W, doesn’t focus on just one of-the-moment coat; it gives you the world of coats – from the utilitarian parka and the chic trench to the decadent fur (real and faux). And some even look like oversized jackets.

Ever since Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and Coach’s Stuart Vevers gave the collegiate/flight jacket a whole lot of personality – louder, brasher – no one has looked back, and, no one wants to.

Every one, at some point or other, needs a flashier jacket to freshen basics. The military-inspired number has just enough flash without being flashy.
