The phrase "too cool for school" has never been apter when it comes to this season's outwear offering. From Gucci to Ganni, A/W 18 is all about the ice blue coat. While classic colourways such as black and camel will always have a special place in our hearts, we can't resist the allure of blue to brighten up our autumnal wardrobes. With the flavour of the season being decidedly '70s, it seems only fitting that this retro shade come to the fore.
There are plenty of options out there for the budding blue coat lover—from high-street bargains to designer investment pieces. For an affordable option, you can't go wrong with River Island's wide-lapeled, double-breasted coat, which gives the pricer alternatives a run for their money. Meanwhile, on the upper end of the spectrum, Rejina Pyo's leather iteration has captured our imagination with its '70s-inspired fit (if you need convincing, just check out Lucy Williams's dreamy autumn outfit below). Flattering on all skin tones, we'll be wearing our blue coats with beige and brown separates for full-on throwback style. Scroll down to see our full edit of the best blue coats available to buy now.
Style Notes: Beatrice Gutu works the blue-coat trend with a colour-matching slip dress. So good for a winter wedding.
Style Notes: Who wouldn't feel happier in this full-length, fluffy Roksanda number?
Style Notes: Lucy Williams steps out in our favourite outfit of the season so far. Rejina Pyo leather jacket and Alexa Chung snakeskin trousers are a match made in heaven.
