Preparation for the colder weather is truly underway at Review HQ. As we bid farewell to sunny days and ditch the short sleeves, we’re welcoming cosy knits and winter woollies to our wardrobe. But when the first chill hits, it’s a coat that proves the real layer of defence. We’ve compiled our favourite winter coats and styling suggestions for the season.

Coats to Covet


It’s not just for superheroes. The cape is an outerwear option that exudes an air of elegance. As part of the signature style of Jackie O, it’s the ultimate luxurious throw-on and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to channel one of the greatest fashion icons of our time? Its elegant cut and construction make it a style statement that can invigorate the simplest of outfits. Let it speak for itself and dial down the rest of your ensemble, balancing the relaxed silhouette with something slim on bottom, such as a pencil skirt or skinny pants.

First created in the 1920s, the peacoat is an undisputed style favourite and one of the most recognised coat styles around. This season, we’ve preserved the iconic design of the peacoat but modernised it with a tie belt that emphasises the waist – now that’s a sophisticated reboot. It’s neatly tailored so you can style it with a wider silhouette like culottes. We’ll be wearing it all winter, from day to night.

The trusty overcoat is a style to rely on for years to come. Not only will it protect you against the elements, it’ll bring an entire outfit together. You can dress down its smartness with skinny jeans and loafers, swapping to heels for evening. Shop it one size up, allowing for layers underneath and the option to cinch in the waist with a belt. And look to a faux fur collar to make gloomy days all the more exciting.


Never shy away from a pop of colour, especially in winter. A colourful coat offers a modern edge without losing any of the versatility of a cosy coat. It’s practical and fun, making it a one step dressing solution that we can’t resist in those ‘what to wear’ moments. Team it with a dress, tights and boots or over a chunky knit, jeans and sneakers for off-duty. For the most flattering length, let it hover somewhere between mid-thigh and just below the knee.
