This Autumn/Winter season, the high street’s coat lines are once again relying on heritage fabrics and vintage inspiration. Providing plenty of choice for retrophiles, this My Way Tweed Coat from French Connection is one of the most stylish we’ve seen.
Winter is definitely here and you may well be thinking of getting a new coat or two. One worth looking at is this new addition at Peacocks. It's a double breasted 60s-style collarless coat. While that may seem impractical at this time of year, you can couple it up with your favourite scarf and not worry about it fighting for space around your neck.
When the bigger budget designers tackle a classic and timeless 20th century look, there's nothing quite so effective thanks to their access to luxury fabrics and master tailoring. This Wool Angora Collarless Coat from Marc by Marc Jacobs captures a sixties look that does simplicity with undeniable style.
Now that the British Summer Time is officially over (if it ever really began), the high street have fully embraced the coming Autumn/Winter season's fashions. Thankfully that means a whole new batch of retro fodder, especially in outerwear.
When it comes to sixties inspired fashion designs, minimal need never mean dull, instead capturing the truly stylish subtlety of a look that's never overdone. This Minimal Coat from ASOS captures that feeling perfectly, with great cut and simply done detailing creating a timeless appeal.
The wool blend coat has an instantly luxurious appearance, in bold shades of green or red offset by single breasted gold button fastening. The addition of four flap-covered pockets, along with the collarless neckline, creates an unmistakeable sixties inspired look that's classic enough to wear for years to come.
It's now available from ASOS for £100.
