Quilted Jackets Are About to Be Everywhere Again—These 18 Are the Absolute Best

As we work our way through this drizzly autumn, I'm more grateful than ever that these days, weather-resistant outerwear happens to be as stylish as it is sensible. For better or for worse, if you reside in the UK you'll probably find yourself reaching for some type of water-resistant jacket or accessory at least a few days out of every week throughout the year. Luckily for us, weather-repellant fashion has come a long way in recent years, and rain coats are no longer the only option if you're hoping to stay dry and look chic whilst you do it.

This season, the quilted jacket—the raincoat's cooler, chicer sister—has been working hard to keep the fashion set looking dry and polished no matter the forecast. Cropping up at so many of our favourite brands, quilted jackets are the outerwear trend we've been eyeing up for a few years now, but this season's offerings are the best we've seen.

A favourite amongst the Who What Wear UK team, quilted jackets were spotted on every corner during our recent trip to Kin House for this year's Festive House event. Styled with everything from cosy joggers to trusty denim, the versatile jacket proved to be a huge hit with our super-chic guests.
