Though look-at-me statement styles (see: this season’s block colour brights) can be fun, we’re all about timeless outerwear you’ll wear forever. And there’s nothing that fits the bill more than the classic coat. With a smart collar, signature three-quarter-length hem, neat front pockets and chic button fastenings, it’s an every-day-of-the-week kind of piece. Adding minimalist polish to a simple jeans and Breton top combo, complementing the clean lines of workday tailoring and even giving matching tracksuits a sense of put-togetherness. Basically every wardrobe needs one for instant and effortless elegance.
