If there is one thing people are great at buying too many of, it’s coats and jackets. Every year when the new season comes it’s so easy to pop into a shop and see all the new styles out and convince yourself you need to buy a new one, when realistically they’re all pretty much the same. A great way to simplify your wardrobe is to stick to the staples, and only have what you need. We’ve put together this blog to help you choose your four most essential coats to have in your wardrobe, and stop you overbuying! Keep reading for the coats everyone needs in their wardrobe.

Four essential coats and jackets

The denim jacket

A denim jacket is a great casual piece to have for the warmer months like spring and summer. It looks great layered over anything, whether that be t-shirts and camis or blouses and dresses. It’s great for the changing seasons, easy to throw on top of your outfit and be ready for a slight breeze if there happens to be one. Denim jackets can last you a lifetime if you look after it, and you can get them in all sorts of different styles. We recommend having one in a classic denim blue, it never goes out of style and will be in fashion every single year. 

The smart and fitted

Whether it be a duster jacket or a trench coat, you should always have at least one coat available that you can put on top of a smart outfit and it doesn’t make you look underdressed. Having the perfect fitted jacket can really elevate your outfit as well, taking you from just casually dressed to ready for almost any occasion. Coats aren’t always the easiest thing to buy off the rack and have fit you perfectly, so alterations can really help with this jacket. After all, if you are limiting the amount of jackets you have you are able to invest a bit more into it to make sure it fits you perfectly.

The leather biker

A leather biker jacket is another piece that has really stood the test of time, never going out of style. You can wear this jacket with almost anything and turn it into the style you want it to be, whether that be super chic and stylish or cool and edgy. It’s a great piece to have and, similarly to your denim jacket, is really versatile. You can pair it with almost anything, from jeans and heels for a night out or a long dress and boots to keep you warm in autumn.

The wooly warmer 

Although coats are definitely part of a fashion statement, it’s important to remember they are also really there to keep you warm. Especially in winter, make sure you have something you can throw on and stay warm in, while still looking great! A warm wooly coat can come in many different styles and colours, so opt for something you know will work well with the pieces you already have in your wardrobe and it will be so easy to just throw on everywhere you go. Stick with neutral colours such as black, navy, olive, grey, or even burgundy to make sure you can wear it year after year.
