On those early winter mornings when you peer out the window and find yourself met with an angry grey sky, it can take all of your might to not turn around and retreat back into bed. But when an extra hour cosied up remains merely a dream, the best thing you can do is wrap yourself up in cushioning fabric and find yourself a warm drink. Whilst I can’t deliver your morning coffee, I can whole heartedly recommend to you the perfect cosy coat.
Bridging the gap between scarf and jacket, & Other Stories has created the chic one-and-done coat that editors and influencers are already flocking to this season. Falling just below hip height, the cool-toned grey jacket features button fastening and a scarf-inspired panel that drapes over the shoulder or around the neck.
On Hannah Almassi: & Other Stories Wool Scarf Jacket (£205). Firmly loved by the Who What Wear UK staffers, Editor In Chief Hannah Almassi was the first in the team to bag the new season goods. Wearing hers with a grey wool skirt, Almassi created an easy tonal look, utilising one of the season’s favourite colours. Rifting off the growing scarf-jacket trend which traces back to Toteme’s Embroidered Scarf Jacket, high-street retailers have been readying themselves for this season with fresh takes on the ingenious design. Whilst other offerings remain compelling, I continue to be drawn to the & Other Stories style for its boxy finish, neat lines and supreme attention to detail.
Balancing a neat finish with a slouchy silhouette, we predict that the wool-blend coat is likely to sell out this side of winter. To get in there first, shop the style here, or read on to discover our other favourite scarf jackets below.
