At Who What Wear, we live for winter coat season, particularly the very start of it. You know what we mean—the glorious in-between time before it becomes compulsory to wear six layers underneath in a feeble attempt at staying warm. As far as we’re concerned, it’s the first couple of autumnal months that present the best coat-wearing opportunities.
While endless desirable outerwear pieces are trickling into the shops as we speak, we’ve already settled on the style we’re investing in first (okay, maybe first because there are classic camel and leopard to contend with): a grey coat.
At face value, you’d be forgiven for regarding the grey coat humble, but don’t be fooled-—it’s actually one of the most versatile, and expensive-looking, options out there. They can fall into boring territory with the wrong combination, so what makes a good grey coat outfit? Allow these ladies to demonstrate...
