Cross over to the dark side this season with this collection of women’s black coats. Versatility and quality are the key criteria when choosing outerwear, so it’s just as well that this collection offers pieces in an easily matched colour and high-end materials.
A piece from the collection of black coats for women could become the one thing you never leave the house without (we’d add front door keys to that, actually). A clean-cut, turn-collar peacoat style, with a zip or buttons, is a sharp look to take you from work commute to evenings out. Another warm option is a quilted down coat, at home both on countryside walks with wellies or slicking in the city with platform shoes. Look for classic horizontal puffer rolls, diagonal geometric quilting or a mix of the two. Choose parka styles with a generous hood to keep chill winds from your ears and rain from you hair. This type of design can be taken in a grungy direction with boyfriend jeans and chunky boots, or look for a belted style to emphasise curves.
A women’s black coat can be the centrepiece of your outfit. Try a square check or dog-tooth herringbone pattern and team with white cotton trousers and plimsolls for a super hip monochrome look. Go double breasted with wide, pointed lapels for an executive-inspired look and add towering stilettos to further boost your stature. Choose oversized or deconstructed lapels on a piece from this edit of black coats for women to bring avant-garde, catwalk credentials to an outfit. A thick, fur-look lining at the hood says exclusive ski resort or arctic adventures, but is also totally at home on a night out in town with your gold-clasped clutch bag and knee-high boots.
