Classic Pieces: The Autumn Coat

Seasonal change is a subtle shift in temperature which sometimes goes unnoticed for a few days between winter and spring, summer and autumn. It takes a few days of sun and shrugging off your jacket mid-morning for us to realise we’re in spring and it takes a few days of wishing you’d worn a scarf before you realise summer’s over and it’s officially coat-season. Coat season (also known as autumn) just so happens to be my favourite time of year as usually by the time the British weather stopped and started its way through June, July and August,  I’m ready for some weather consistency. By mid-September, almost every day is a coat day which means if you’re investing in one coat this season it needs to be versatile and able to resist all the elements. Long coats are perfect for getting ahead in the style-stakes, quilted coats are the best for warmth no matter how light they may feel and everyone knows the waterproof benefits of a waxed Barbour jacket.

This season has seen the rise of the trophy jacket alongside a selection of blazers, however looking forward to autumn/winter means cosy shearling collars, warm quilted jackets and a beautiful array of tailored coats. My favourite winter coats are classic styles, trench coats, Barbour jackets and tailored long styles are all dependable and versatile enough to see you through AW13 with ease and elegance. As a few new season previews have been sneaking through Jules B HQ the past few weeks, I can assure you coats from designers Helene Berman and Annette Gortz will be at the top of your wish list for coat season!
