The Winter Coat Update


Thinking about outerwear before it’s a weather-backed necessity may seem overzealous, but take too long and you’re literally left out in the cold. Here, of-the-moment takes on six classic styles that are always a good idea.


Arguably the biggest takeaway from fashion week (both on the runways and off), the down jacket has been reintroduced in a number of new shapes, without losing any of its practical attributes—mainly, warmth.
