Best Winter Coats for the Country
If it’s style and durability you’re after, opt for a classic wax Barbour jacket. This belted style is chic enough for city wear, but hardy enough to brave the elements in the countryside. If your Barbour needs a bit of love, head down to the Barbour Duke Street store, which is the first to offer an in-store re-waxing facility.
Just because you’re wearing it in the countryside doesn’t mean it should be khaki, or dull. Enter Moose Knuckles X Mary Katrantzou’s Tennyson faux fur-trimmed velvet parka, which is an absolute work of art, and all that our hearts desire for tromping about in the country.
Rubberised raincoats are back in vogue for AW18, with a rainbow of hues hitting the high street for the new season. Keep the British weather at bay with this Rains classic sage mac, that’s light enough for brisk country walks.
Faux fur is everywhere (as ever) this autumn/winter, but we’re diverting from leopard to the bold, primary hues on offer. This red faux fox fur coat by Stand is top of our wish list, and will look fabulous when slung over the back of an armchair by the open fire of your closest country pub. (Just not too close to the flames, darling.)
If you’re looking for a more formal coat to cross over between country and town worlds, this Hobbs long Bianca coat is the one. It will look equally at home over office-wear or slung over jeans and a jumper plus country boots.
The ultimate buy-now-keep-forever shearling coat, you’ll be grateful you splurged on this Miu Miu coat every time you wrap it around you like a warming hug on a cold country morning. A timeless classic.
