Style Advisor: Three Ways To Wear A Winter Coat

Style Advisor: Three Ways To Wear A Winter Coat

[audible sigh] January. There's a reason many of us consider it the longest month of the year: no aesthetic reason for tinsel, no feasible excuse for fireworks, just a slooooow march to the first payday of the year. So that means we all need to make our style stretch a little further than usual. We've finagled this beautiful Gucci topcoat, a true sign of showstopping luxury that's well worth the investment — and with that investment comes the unstoppable temptation to wear it with every possible combination of outfit. That's where your trusty pals at FLANNELS come in: take our hand and let's count those days down to February, together.

SEASONAL COMBINATION

Winter can be frustrating for many reasons, but most infuriating is when it's Arctic-level cold one day and sort-of-humid the next. But don't start throwing all your winter coats off the clothes rail just yet. Take advantage of the confusion, and keep that warm wool outerwear on while you confidently rock a T-shirt. It may not feel like summer yet, but you can bring a bit of summer out in the meantime.

LAYER WISELY

Take it from us: one of the underrated joys of winter weather is having the excuse to layer up. This doesn't mean you need to look like that episode of Friends where Joey puts on Chandler's entire wardrobe — instead, approach this philosophy through a streetwear lens, like this hoodie and coat combo shows.

POLO PASSION

An investment piece like this wool coat can sometimes be daunting to wear with just anything, but that doesn’t mean you need to go out and buy a similarly opulent suit to keep up appearances. A polo shirt like the one above is a similarly flexible option — casual enough to lend a louche appeal to the overcoat, but crisp enough to emphasise your smart sense of style.
