10 best men’s coats

If autumn/winter dressing were a movie, the coat would take the leading role. Scarves, knitwear, trousers and even boots are all supporting stars in comparison. It's no surprise then that making your biggest wardrobe investment of the year can be a daunting affair. To take the weight off, we've cherry-picked ten of the best winter coats to invest in this season.

1. OVERCOAT



AllSaints Foley Coat

 

We have to admit, we're a little bit in love with the humble overcoat. The clean lines, smooth shoulders and almost cocoon shape of this AllSaints iteration hits all the right notes.


AllSaints, Foley Coat, £348

 


2. MAC



Farah Miro Hooded Mac Coat

 

Named after Scottish artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh - the genius behind waterproof fabric - the mac has become fashion’s precipitation-beating weapon of choice. The showerproof nature of this number will mean whatever you’re doing, nothing will rain on your parade.


Farah, Miro Hooded Mac Coat, £150

 


3. GILET



NICCE Monte Panelled Gilet

 

Be as free as you can (in the coat sense) with a gilet that allows your arms to breathe while keeping your torso cosy. Perfect for those in between days when a full-on coat is just too much.


NICCE, Monte Panelled Gilet, £55

 


4. PEACOAT



Ted Baker Grilld Core Peacoat

 

Smart but not too smart, military-esque without being too severe, the peacoat is a half-and-half dream. Nailing many a dress code requirement, this seafaring style covers all bases.


Ted Baker, Grilld Core Peacoat, £329

 


5. WAX



Barbour Peak Wax Jacket

 

That crucial cost-per-wear ratio tips favourably in your balance with a wax jacket like this one that’ll last you for years. The rugged look and failsafe hue make it a winner.


Barbour, Peak Wax Jacket, £219

 


6. PARKA



Quicksilver Storm Drop Water Resistant Hooded Parka

 

The parka’s benefits are two-fold: luxurious, feel-me-now appeal and easy, rebellious cool. Layer with jeans, sturdy boots and shades to garner admiring glances and sartorial seals of approval.


Quicksilver, Storm Drop Water Resistant Hooded Parka, £195

 


7. LEATHER



AllSaints Taro Leather Biker Jacket

 

A leather jacket has long been associated with cool – think Marlon Brando in The Wild One. Today it should take pride of place in your wardrobe - just pair with muted neturals and distressed denim.


AllSaints, Taro Leather Biker Jacket, £318

 


8. Padded



Superdry Fuji Double Zip Hooded Jacket

 

The technical outerwear trend is still going strong. Take inspiration from Versace, Prada and GmbH with an outdoorsy, padded jacket. This one will instantly brighten those grey city streets.


Superdry, Fuji Double Zip Hooded Jacket, £79.99

 


9. BOMBER



Alpha Industries Ma-1 Vf Lw Bomber Jacket

 

The first military flight jacket to transition into civilian dressing, the MA-1 comes with heritage in tow. Throw on this luxe, jewel tone version and look effortlessly pulled together.


Alpha Industries, Ma-1 Vf Lw Bomber Jacket, £150

 


10. WINDBREAKER



Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Jeans Colour Block Pop Over Jacket

 

Windcheaters are big news. Set to take cult status alongside trainers, we're suggesting you add one to your wardrobe quick, starting with this number from Tommy Hilfiger.


Tommy Hilfiger, Tommy Jeans Colour Block Pop Over Jacket, £150

Find your fit outdoors this January

Find your fit outdoors this January

 


 

After a month spent indoors eating never-ending turkey and watching Netflix on a loop, the time has come to brave the great outdoors once again. Added ‘get fit’ to your list of New Year’s resolutions? Take your workout outside in 2018. From hiking to winter swimming, orienteering and weekend camping, there are so many ways to get moving. When the weather says hibernate, we say embrace nature and all its cold-weather beauty.

“A change of scenery will seriously invigorate your workout.”


For an active January, you’ll need the right kit. Think a weather-proof jacket, insulating fleece and sturdy boots. Bright colours are useful for dark winter nights and a fitness tracker essential for monitoring your progress. Considering renewing that gym membership? There’s no need. The great outdoors is calling…

How to create a mindful bedroom

HOW TO CREATE A MINDFUL BEDROOM

 

There’s so much more to a sleep sanctuary than just detoxing your den from clutter and devices - and minimalism really isn’t a must. Here’s how to get a good night's sleep.



Shop BedroomShop Beauty

 

 


The best bed linen

We all know we should be getting the full 8 hours, skipping that afternoon coffee and ditching the devices, but why not let your bed linen do some of the work? Our top tip is super breathable linen – its temperature regulating tricks give it year-round appeal.

“Linen’s temperature regulating tricks make our stonewashed Halston range the perfect spring bedding”

- Eleesha Simpson, Junior Bedlinen Buyer

Try committing to a simple colour scheme – say, cream and dove grey – to create a sense of visual calm, so you can layer your linens without digging out the matching sets. Then, when you wake, take a moment to reset the scene; your future self will thank you come evening.

The beauty buys

We’re big believers that bedtime is the best time for some serious DIY pampering. Make the most of the fact you won’t be moving for the next 8 hours with leave-in treatments like sleeping masks, night serums and hair oils.

“Incorporating calming scents such as lavender and ylang-ylang into your bedtime beauty routine will help to de-stress your mind”

- Shannon Lawlor, Beauty Editor

If seriously luxe skincare isn’t your thing, a candle or pillow mist is an easy shortcut to beauty-boosted sleep. Take cues from classic spa scents, like lavender, ylang ylang, clary sage and camomile - they’ll provide a soothing burst of fragrance and won’t invigorate like citrus or mint.
