All too often, living in Ireland in winter means our fabulously coordinated, multi-layered and considered looks tend to go to waste under coats and jackets. So why not instead make them the main feature...
Channelling style when the weather can’t make up its mind becomes a near impossible task… Almost anything goes so long as it keeps the wind and rain off our backs.
So on that note, we are going to analyse some of our finest coats and jackets in-store and online today!
We will be taking a measure of winter wearability and style…
No.1- Mus&Bombon Chest Jacket
Wearability: There is no doubt of this jacket's versatility from Mus&Bombon. Its neutral tones and timeless print will keep you looking smart and sophisticated whether you're heading for a casual catch-up or dressing up for an occasional night out! It is soft and comfortable, yet structured to give a gorgeous silhouette
Style: We recommend going all-out for this number with these ICHI Cordy Trousers and our Tie Dye Knit Sweater to keep warm and stylish. Top it off with a colourful statement scarf like the Steffie Scarf from Rant & Rave to tie the whole look together.
No.2- Molly Bracken Plaid Shirt Coat
Style: Dress this piece up or down with our Rant & Rave Tina Leggings for comfort, or the Nessa Leather Jeans for style. Double up on the colours in this jacket with ICHI's Beda Hat in a marled purple for a more considered look.
No.3 -French Connection Iolani Midi Puffer Coat
Wearability: You can't go wrong with a puffer jacket. This everyday jacket comes with a fun, contrasting red lining and zip front as well as two zip pockets. Not to mention its sleek black exterior and mid-length to give a strong and fitted finish. This jacket will keep you feeling warm and cosy during those icy and windy days. The enchanted style hood will also ensure your neck is protected from the cold even when your hood is down.
Style: We are fans of matching colours in easy ways to give a styled and considered look which is why we have to pair this piece with the Rena Lurex Cable Knit Hat in Red. The perfect piece to go over your gym wear, jeggings and athleisure. Shop Olive & Crew's leisurewear here!
No.4- French Connection Klio Recycled Aris Quilt Coat
Wearability: Our French Connection Statement Jacket is one of our absolute favourites. Depending on your personal sense of style, this can be an everyday jacket or a more occasional one. Either way, you are going to look fabulous and even better, feel so warm and comfortable.
With padding throughout, concealed popper and zip fastening along with a removable collar and hood you'll be ready to brave the elements in this number. Its long length also offers added protection.
Style: Let this mood-boosting jacket do all the work. We would love to see this piece paired with Zilch's Mid-Length Polka Dot Dress which would perfectly balance out the volume of the jacket, accompanied by the ICHI Ivona Hat in Koi.
