For a moment, I actually believed the only coat/jacket I would see this season is that The Frankie Shop quilted style (we all know the one). Then, to my surprise the fashion people pulled through with yet another form of outerwear to fill my Instagram feed. Although not all from the same brand this time – even though they look extremely similar – they all have the same thing in common, and it's all about the colour. Let me introduce you to the salt and pepper coat, aka your new best friend.
Usually used when describing dark hair with grey or white flecks in, the coat in question is much the same. A mix of grey, white and black threads creates a textured herringbone or flecked effect that's proving to be a huge hit this season. Best part? It's the high street brands that are leading the salt and pepper movement. With the likes of Mango, River Island, & Other Stories and Aligne all on board, you can pick up one of the best coats 2021 has to offer from £40 – yep, really.
I've rounded up some of the best salt and pepper outfits I've seen on some of the most stylish women, and gone as far as finding where you can shop their exact coat. Because they're that good, trust me!
Style Notes: River Island has also jumped on the micro coat trend. And so many people have snapped up this winner. I love the cool cuffs and oversized fit – especially when worn with laid-back baggy jeans and trainers like Miya.
