From a classic camel coat to a metallic moto jacket, a well-loved winter wardrobe staple is a worthwhile investment piece.

As the festive season approaches, jet-setters are beginning to think about what to pack for their upcoming vacation. The winter season has become an all-time favorite for the style-conscious among us. From shearling coats to cozy cocoon attire, winter style definitely has its feats. A tried-and-true gem, a classic coat can transform one’s monotonous ensemble into a stylish combination.

A wardrobe hero for those who love to layer, these luxury pieces can be the perfect companions to holiday shopping sprees, cheery soirées, and intimate gatherings. This season, the best winter coats range from bold silhouettes like tweed and leather moto jackets to enduring classics like camel and trench coats. 

Max Mara, Hermès, and Tommy Hilfiger offered their minimalist takes on the camel coat, delivering warmth but in enviable style. Contemporary edge shines through leather jackets à la Bally, Dolce & Gabbana, and Tommy Hilfiger. The trench coat is a forever style that has maximum versatility as demonstrated by Burberry, Givenchy, and Sacai. On the other hand, Chanel proves that tweed is the heritage outerwear staple that should be your next investment piece.

For those looking for an effortlessly cool silhouette, take the oversized blazer for a spin as seen on the runways of Brandon Maxwell, Miu Miu, and Stella McCartney. And lastly, for those with a penchant for prints, a statement-making coat emblazoned with a standout print is sure to turn heads. Look to Altuzarra, Marni, and Peter Do for a dose of sartorial inspiration. Use the images below as your guide for vacation-ready ensembles for the colder days ahead.

Classic Camel

Camel coats are always a must for an elevated casual moment. From double-breasted styles to masculine silhouettes, this muted number is a versatile piece that can be paired with denim and stylish sneakers. 

The Leather Jacket

Worn by style icons Bella Hadid, Rihanna, and Hailey Bieber, a black leather jacket is a timeless wardrobe staple that can be paired with anything from denim, a crisp white button-down, a tank, or even a sleek pair of trousers. It’s indisputable that a leather jacket will always put a cool-girl twist to one’s ensemble. 

The Trench

With a tailored silhouette, the power of the trench is undeniable. Take it from Sacai for a two-toned, fashion-forward look on the classic form. On the other hand, Givenchy offers a luxurious, form-fitting trench for an elegant overcoat. Burberry opted for a deconstructed/reconstructed look with sleeves tied around the waist for their contemporary trench coat

Tweed Is Back

A tweed coat brings a refined touch to one’s look for the colder months. Wear it with a belt or as a cropped coordinate for a contemporary midriff-baring silhouette or a prim and proper aesthetic. 

The Oversized Blazer

Embrace oversized boxy blazers that play with proportion this season. This borrowed-from-the-boys style will make you feel instantly polished fitted with chunky knitwear underneath. A wardrobe fundamental, this piece strikes the perfect balance between comfort and style.
