Down With The COATS
We tried all the freeze-busting coats on the high street so you don’t have to. Our verdict may surprise you…
Boyfriend, duster, wrap – these coat incarnations may pack a stylish punch, but when it comes to functionality, they always fall short to the feather-down parka. Sure, they’re impossibly warm, but we’d be lying if we said the sensible coat didn’t previously carry a stigma in fashion circles. However, thanks to Canada Goose, that’s all changed. You no longer have to sacrifice your outfit cred in order to don one – in fact, the outdoorsy cover-up has been elevated to icon status with the help of Olivia Palermo and Emma Stone, who’ve given it a glossy overhaul. The big question is, will you go for the real Mccoy or one of these high-street homages?
