Summer is well and truly over, and that means it’s time to break out the coats again. It’s been so long since we needed proper outerwear that we don’t know where to start. Enter Esprit and their outerwear edit, which hits key trends without breaking the bank.
Check is the big print to look out for this season, covering everything from blazers to wool bombers to long coats. The darker colour palette of grey, navy, black and white means you can go for a pretty bold check without clashing with what you’re wearing underneath. All the pattern-averse people out there will be pleased to know that the trusty camel coat has made a return. If you don’t have one already, a double-breasted wool number is the one to invest in.
Outerwear needs to be functional too – god know what kind of winter we’re gonna get after our extreme summer – so a parka with its hood and its padding will see you through the season, and extra touches like embroidery and taping keep it fashion. For ultimate practicality thought it has to be a down jacket. They’re lightweight, they’ll keep you warm and dry, and they come in plenty of colour choices.
Not only is Esprit staying on trend, the brand is also working on making their production chain fully sustainable and we like that.
