So it’s cold, most likely raining and you’re just about to leave the house. What to wear over your many sweaters? Let our handy coat 2015/6 coat guide help.
The Posh Night Out
New Year ’s Eve at a swanky restaurant or a big birthday somewhere that has gilded taps in the loos? Try a pea coat or trench coat in a wool blend – it’ll keep you warm while you’re waiting for a cab and keep you looking suave while you shiver to death trying to make small talk to your GF’s great aunt.
The Walking to Work
It’s dark in the mornings and evenings (and all other times really) so opt for a lighter or brighter colour to make sure you’re visible.
The I Will Get Outdoor Exercise Even if It’s Almost a Blizzard (Fashion)
Choose something with a hood and let your beard look after the rest of your head, amirite?
The I Will Get Outdoor Exercise Even if It’s Almost a Blizzard (Dog Walking)

The Smart/Casual Drinks with Mates
Try a bomber or leather jacket, for that chilled out ‘oh I just finished my super cool job and have many twenty pound notes to spend on craft beer’ Friday evening look.
The Questionable Yet Fashionable Cape
I kid you not. You can make up your own minds about whether or not these are a good investment this winter!
