Much of the high street's retro outerwear opts for a more formal, tailored look. If you're looking for something a little more casual, however, there's no shortage of vintage inspiration to be found. This Cromwell Striped Pea Coat from Urban Outfitters has all the sixties appeal of full length coats, while remaining casual enough to pair with your everyday wardrobe.
When investing a lot of money in outerwear, finding the balance between something that makes a statement, and something you can wear over again can be tricky. Opting for a classic and understated design, this Red Riding Hood Coat from Hearts & Hands pulls that balance off with ease.
The triumphant return of the cape coat to the high street this Winter has come as a welcome surprise for retro lovers, offering a truly unmistakeable vintage chic. This Beige Cape Coat from River Island is one of the many options, keeping it classic for a true heritage feel.
The use of a warm beige shade, combined with brown leather detailing throughout, creates a subtle sixties look that's more luxurious than its price tag. With the addition of a hood, this well cut piece is both practical and stylish all at once.
It's available from River Island now for £59.99.
Duffle coats have become an undeniably classic wardrobe staple for both men and women, providing the perfect coat for everyday wear in the chillier months. This short version from Miss Selfridge provides a great option for those who months when full length is just too far.
Utilising the standard duffle fastenings, the coat's shape also leans on a sixties aesthetic, with a swing style silhouette. The A-line shape is ideally complimented by ruffled shoulders for added femininity, while the hood is both practical and appealing.
It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £50.
